“What? Your Game Station? What are you talking about?” I asked her in confusion. She rolled her eye before focusing back to the device.
“My Game Station. I was playing, um…” Her eye glanced upward for a moment before returning back to the device. “…a game, yeah, when suddenly it shut off! The TV doesn’t turn on, and the lights just went off.” Her voice clearly indicated that she was annoyed at this turn of events.
“The whole building suffered a power outage. There is no power to be had right now.” I calmly explained.
“Well then fix it then.” she commanded. I felt a slight tug to do something.
“Fix what? A power outage? In this weather?!” I could feel my voice rising from that last question. Her singular red eye finally stared right into my eyes, her iris lighting up with bright red.
“Do it now.” She commanded. I could feel a pull of my feelings with her words.
