I wonder what he was thinking when it happened. I wonder if he had much time to think about it at all. I’m here, alone, in a State forest just as David was with his girlfriend. While maybe I should be in fear, the confusion about what happened to my hallmate is overwhelming me. Outside my headlamp limits my vision to mere feet and I have no idea what is making those footsteps in the grove of birch trees just a few yards away.
I don’t know why the world is this way. I don’t know why David and his girlfriend are dead now.
