The facility had planned a large gathering.
A enourmous crowd were seated in chairs, I sat at the far back.
The authority deemed this a day of celebration, before our week long vacation.
They gave out rewards.
I didn't get one, yet they it would be more inclusive.
People cheered and laughed and got riled up.
I was left in silence, I was left realizing that this was a constant repeat.
It seemed like I was stuck in a loop.
Abruptly, black brick walls were erected around me.
I stood up and felt them, pushed against them, screamed at them.
"Why am I like this?"
I sat back down in my seat, my head in my hands and my optics closed.
I heard only one heartbeat.
The walls were gone, as my optics opened.
I had let the malice of my silence infect me.
