LAURA: See, check this out, we could just bang on this pipe, you know? And...

SHELLY: Could we sample that, or...?

LAURA: Totally, like, what about after the--

LAURA: oh, sorry, just a sec.

SHELLY: Laura?

LAURA:: I, uh... I need to take a break.

SHELLY: Laura? Hey! Laura!

MESSAGE TEXT:

Dear Nobody,

I feel embarrassed now, thinking about following Laura out of the pump station like a kicked puppy, wondering what horrible thing I might have done, until she threw herself into this room and shut the door behind her and just screamed. The fear of abandonment is weirdly self-centred. Because it pre-supposes that little-old-you are filled with such immense destructive power that you're capable of driving every person you care about away.

Anyway, at the bottom of the dam, with her on side of the door and me on the other, she told me that Metallurgic had bought her mom's house—her whole neighbourhood, in fact—out from under her to build a new server farm.

"Ugh, god, I don't even like that house," she said. "I don't even like Indianapolis. I hated every minute I spent in that city as a kid. When they told us we'd have to leave the dam, I went back to my apartment, and sat on my bed, and I prayed to a god I don't even believe in that I wouldn't have to move back home, that I wouldn't have to show up on my mom's front stoop with a suitcase and a bunch of stupid excuses. "She was trying not to sound like she was crying. But she sounded like she was crying. "I guess I got my stupid wish, huh?"

I asked her where she'd go, and she laughed. Where else could she go? Back home, to help her mom pack up the house, to move with her into whatever dank little one-room hole Metallurgic's "displacement grant" will allow them to afford. "I think I could have dealt with being one of those losers who celebrate their birthday living in the house they grew up in. But now? Now I don't even have that."

I had no idea how to make her feel better. So I just sat on the other side of the door, and I started singing the song we were working on. The one about being the last two girls on earth. And eventually, she started singing along.

Love,
Shelly
