I was picked up by the current and I let it take me. I didn’t have a destination in mind. In a way I felt free. For perhaps the first time I just let the current take me, not back to my body, not back to Lee or to any other specific place or random place that came to my mind. Faster I felt than ever before, spur of the moment switches of paths at higher speeds, banking here, there, anywhere and everywhere. Too much, things were happening too fast, this Lee thing; there were things to know about what I could do. It wasn’t just a matter of doing it; there was more to it now.
Out of the current, I don’t know where, from an electrical box at the top of a high rise building, and now it was like I was gliding in free air. Or maybe I was following other waves, currents, radio waves still banking, picking up different waves, faster above the city. Do I sense other entities around me? Are there many of us out here, all traveling too fast to respective destinations to realize there are others about us? Or is it just the contents of the wireless communications? What do I hear? Is it just the whirr of the speed, the sound of multitudes of wireless conversations, or others like me?
An hour past, maybe two and I knew I wasn’t going to find an answer to all those questions tonight. A trip back to Lee may help, but, tonight was not the night. Finally, I would catch up with Donny. I would get back to the investigation with a less intimidating person. Funny really, this guy has all the money and power and he is the less intimidating.
