  • The Sleep Debt
    at her I feel like a world champion clipping the last hurdle and falling to the ground There are people you can go to if you don t want to keep the baby she says very quietly glancing around the room I have made her feel uncomfortable I need to go She nods and I feel her eyes following me from the room her sympathy leaving a trail of ash all the way from her desk to the door Sam tells me that when I am asleep next to him I am like an anchor resting in the harbour s depths He teases me because I always have good dreams and he claims he can tell by the little smile on my face I haven t told him about my most recent dreams They usually take place on a maternity ward Sometimes I give birth to a normal baby and then it opens its eyes and they are like black pits Other times they won t even let me see it I wake up over and over again When I roll over to face Sam he is always feigning sleep I have never seen him sleep He is the cruise ship on the water s surface all the lights are off but deep down in the ship s stomach the engine is still whirring the captain and his crew forever manning their posts One time I actually wake screaming the air around the bed reverberates echoing my horror back at me Sam pins me down touching my cheek his concerned face only increasing my pain I clutch at my sides struggling unintentionally under his embrace Sally it s okay you re awake now The nightmare is over I look up at him and I feel the first tears escape If only I could wake up from the nightmare I nestle into him Will you call in sick tomorrow I don t think I can I ve got a really important meeting after lunch Just for the morning then Sal Please He continues to stroke my hair distractedly He is juggling work schedules in his head I know it s selfish Sam but please can we just spend the morning together And then I can drive you in after lunch Okay I ll check with the boss but it should be all right He kisses the nape of my neck drawing me even closer Now go back to sleep sweetheart It is hard to drift off with the thrumming heart of an insomniac beating against my back but an anchor cast into the sea cannot resist gravity I take his hand and lead him across the square Where are we going Sal It s a surprise He is struggling to keep up with me so I slow my pace His favourite restaurant is only five minutes from our house Marco welcomes us ushering us to our table in the window The boyish smile plays across Sam s lips as he holds the chair out for me But it s not a special occasion Why does that matter I grin at him What are you going to order Let me guess a speciale pizza I might do I haven t decided yet But I bet you re already craving spaghetti carbonara I will order the carbonara I always do but what I am craving is a whole other matter When Marco returns we decline his offer of wine and settle for juice He ll have the pizza speciale please I tell Marco And she ll have the spaghetti carbonara Sam s overenthusiastic Italian accent makes Marco wince and roll his eyes at me I play with the ring on my finger twisting it round letting the diamond catch the sunlight I m going to the bathroom Sam I ll just be a minute I splash water on my face re apply the faded mascara The ring continues to sparkle I check the appointment card in my bag two o clock The last time I cried in these toilets was the night Sam proposed Sam is still smiling when I return to the table He looks so tired but his smile almost manages to scatter the shadows on his face Are you sure you can t take the rest of the day off Just a little bit longer When s your meeting I can t It s at two o clock I m sorry Sally Any other day My heart shudders at the mention of that time The appointment card feels heavy in my bag I wish I could tell him but maybe it is fate that he has to go into work We pop back home after lunch and he apologises again Where are my car keys he asks Two o clock is drawing near us I take them from the spot he always leaves them I ll drive you No really it s fine I don t mind You ll have to pick me up later if you drive me now I don t want to take too much out of your day I sigh I cannot argue anymore Are you sure you re okay to drive He gives me the same answer he always does and kisses me goodbye It feels like months pass as I sit in the waiting room Two o clock has passed by Sam must be sitting in his meeting making that important decision I swear when I arrived there were more leaves on the bare trees those that remain look duller and less alive I rub the base of my stomach and wish he was here I wish he knew When my phone coughs into life it startles everyone in this tense little room Anxious female faces all stare at me as I fumble with the phone lock Hello Sally it s Lorraine Lorraine never rings me What s wrong What s happened It s Sam He crashed his car They ve taken him to

  • Them That Didn’t
    who went in had gone beyond They exceeded the level of sacrifice expected of them by astronomical proportions went headlong with no consideration of the consequences The news did not mention the ones who stayed out It wasn t that there was a fire Them that stayed out thought that there was Morgan remembers some of the first people to reach the car park saying there was Remembers waiting to be told where to aim the pumps Them that went in found out that there wasn t no need for all that cumbersome apparatus It was that they had sold too many tickets allocated a thousand more than they were supposed to Too many people got too excited when the band came to the stage First they all wanted to get too close to the band then they all wanted to get far away from them to get out of there too quickly Human error they said on the news They mentioned lawsuits and compensation for the families of the victims Them that went in saw that the bodies became a high tide crashing against the edges and corners of the arena Them that didn t Morgan heard it described that way on the news Other times it was called a stampede Eventually all they had to do was say the name of the arena and you knew what they were talking about Morgan knew the arena well before its name became the name of an infamous tragedy He had been a lifeguard at the leisure pool there when he was younger The qualification looked good when he applied to join the Fire Service In both jobs they always told you that your number one priority was your own personal safety When he was a lifeguard Morgan didn t think it was true Not once did he have to jump in and save someone They are saying the name of the arena at the end of the news broadcast now It s almost a year since it happened and next week they re going to be unveiling a statue to honour those who lost their lives The remote is right there with Morgan in the reclining chair but in the end it s Dan who gets up and walks across the break room to switch off the screen While Dan is up Morgan looks over at Simon He wants to see Simon stealing one of Dan s draughts pieces Morgan thinks he needs that to happen and keep happening more than he needs anything else in the world About Joe Ransom Joe Ransom is a writer from Sheffield England In 2014 he received his MFA from the University of San Francisco His flash fiction story Them That Didn t was published by Litro in June He lives in Boston Massachusetts with his wife Amanda Mail Twitter More Posts 2 Comments comments Prev To Be Next The Sleep Debt Related Posts The Beasts of Eden Nilam Ashra McGrath Rouen Pitch Black
