At some point, quite a while later, he spoke again. “U2.”
I waited for more, and it did not come. I opened my eyes and looked over at him. “What about them?”
He opened his eyes and slowly turned his head toward me. “What about who?”
He looked at me blankly for a moment, then his eyes cleared. “You. Too. You might get a new name too.”
He turned to face front again, closing his eyes. I watched his face for a while.
Eventually, he smiled that slight smile again and spoke, but without opening his eyes. “I’m at a place called vertigo.”
After another longish silence, I was ready to close my own eyes again, and then I noticed it.
This post is in the past tense.
Why would that be?
