I am a quiet man. I always have been. Maybe that has more to do with the fact that I am deaf.
When I was 12 years old I was in an accident. Up until that time I had taken for granted what most of us do. The ability to hear. But after that day, I never heard a sound again. As is well known, my other senses sharpened until I was able to sense vibrations. It was the closest I ever came to being able to hear again. Every sound makes a vibration, even running machinery does it. I can tell if my computer is left on or has gone idle by those vibrations. Its all I have left of a world of hearing now.
One day when I got back from my doctors, having found out that the newest experimental surgery could not help me hear again, the most bazaar thing happened to me. I was getting ready for bed and when I leaned back, I suddenly found myself laying in a field.
Since then I have wondered the countryside looking for another living soul. Is there any? So far I haven't found another person in this vast land. Maybe I am all alone. Maybe this is the afterlife and the powers that be are trying decide if I go to heaven or hell. Or maybe this is just the Io Effect.......
