Back on Earth


~Part Five~

“Hello,” you say.

A moment, then the man calls back. “Are you all right?”

You think about the question. Are you all right? Are you? The query confounds you. You look down at your hands, as thought they might be holding some answer.

Before you can say anything in response, “Do you wanna lift?” asks the man by the truck.

He is asking if I need help, you finally decide.

“No, thank you,” you say. You aren’t exactly sure what the expression means, but you say it. It feels like the correct way to answer.
