Building 8 "Displaced"

“I saw a movie recently. There was something wrong with it. I exited the theater at around eleven. The air was thick with fog, and the entire way home I couldn't get over how out of place I felt. How not like myself I felt. I tried to explain it to my girlfriend, but I couldn't really find the words. I finally said that it felt like we had passed over a dimension. Just enough of a shift to be unsettling. And though I tried to fight the feeling I couldn't deny how strange I everything seemed.

When I got home, I quickly gathered my things and headed inside.But I got to the front door it was slightly ajar. It was possible I just forgot to close it before I left but, I never do that. I pushed open the door, expecting any number of things. But nothing was wrong. The house was normal. I think it was normal.

I went to feed my Halloween crab Sheila. Normally she isn't too thrilled to see me. But she was...off. While I was making her food my girlfriend changed her water. Only when she went to shoo the crab away from the water, Sheila wouldn't move. So my my girlfriend picked her up and put her away from the dish. Sheila just sat there, waiting patiently for her to finish with the dish. Normally Sheila is terrified when handled. I figured my girl is just better at handling her than me.

I went ahead and went to the bathroom. Only my toothbrush has a purple handle. The one in there was green...it sounds stupid, but I swear to you that is only the start.

I tried to put it out of my mind that night and eventually I managed to fall asleep. The next day I woke up to find that it was still foggy outside. I leaned over to kiss my girlfriend, only she wasn't there. I figured she had left early for something. I hate it when she doesn't wake me up before she leaves.
