Noumenon

There was a knock on the door. R opened the door. “What are you doing here?” He looked very surprised to see N.

“I am here to give you the present that I had promised you,” N said.

“What do you mean? You sent me the present already!” R said.

“I mean the other present,” N said. ¬† She leaned forward and kissed him on the cheek. “Goodbye,” N waved her hand.

“Are you out of your mind?!” R shouted hysterically. ¬†With a grin, N turned around and walked away as fast as she could. Watching N disappearing from his sight, R remained at the door, puzzled.

N doesn’t understand why she went to R’s apartment either, only that the act was suicidal. She doesn’t even remember what happened before she knocked on his door or before she saw the ghostly look on R’s face. “So I’d done it again…What is WRONG with me?” N thought. But by then it was too late–she had just ruined everything.
