That loud high-pitched ringing… do you think he hears it too?
WHILE THIS HAS A LOT OF ANGST POTENTIAL
I think he’s become habituated to the noise and no longer registers it on a conscious level.
Although, imagining him laying awake at night, unable to sleep for the fourth, fifth, maybe sixth night in a row, unknowing the exact number because does it matter anymore? That ringing never ceases. Never stops. The only rest he gets is when he passes out from pure exhaustion.
Wiford tries to offer him ear muffs. “Please, try them? Maybe it’ll block out the sound.”
“No,” Dark turns them down. “You can’t block out what’s in your own head.”
AN AWESOME POST JUST GOT EVEN BETTER.
