Reason Why It Hurts To Feel So Invisible

Hey, hello. Hi there. What’s up? How are you? Oh, hey, guess what? Want to know something interesting? You know, I-

He sighed and stopped speaking. What was the use? He was invisible. No one noticed him. He was right there, standing amongst the crowd of people, but not a single person noticed him.

He tried talking to them, befriending them, but it was no use because no one paid attention to him. They were all so busy with their lives; they were too selfish to care about other people.

He bit his lip and tried not to cry. He looked around him. Everyone was happy, smiling, laughing and no one noticed him or how hurt he was and how invisible he felt.

Hey, hey – he tried again – look at me. I’m right here. Please, I exist too, you know? I’m standing right here. At least, hear me out. I just want my voice to be heard.

I just want someone to listen to what I have to say. Am I that insignificant? Why can’t you see me? I’m alive. I exist. I’m here.

Comments (from back when this used to be posted elsewhere):

Analyn (&dysenteryanalyn):
This is another depressing story. I wonder how you come up with these stories.

Freya (in reply to Analyn):
I’m not really sure. I get ideas and I just write it down. It might also have something to do with what people might be feeling or thinking about or what they’ve seen, etc.

Blanka Đulabić (&B4RBii3):
It hurts, because we all want to be seen but, also, to stay alone, a little bit, and sometimes, it’s really difficult to find the balance.

Freya (in reply to Blanka):
Yeah, I think everyone wants to be seen and noticed. Who wants to be invisible, right? Perhaps, people are just looking for a place where they can feel that they belong, where they won’t feel so alone and unwanted and unloved.

A little solitude or quiet time is okay once in a while, but who wants to be alone all the time? There should be some balance between being alone and not being alone.

Don't You Remember How Things Work In The World?

Also known as, "Here's a reminder, in case you forgot" and "Have you forgotten how things work around here?"

In the last episode of this series, West was interrupted by East before the former could protest upon hearing the eastern Superhero’s suggestion of making sure that the Clubs, Hearts and the other rulers of the kingdoms near the Visible Demarcation Line stop interfering and just let the Diamonds rulers and the Spades King deal with the issue of Fantasia’s ownership by themselves.

Let’s find out what East wants to say.

“Look, Amber,” East says, “Remember that both the Spades and the Diamonds Kingdom are on my side of The World, the eastern side. Any issue or problem that goes on in that part of The World should be left to me to take care of since it is on my side.”

East made sure to put emphasis on ‘my’ to make doubly sure that West would understand. “If you are having any issues in any of your western kingdoms, I also would not interfere unless you ask for my help because those kingdoms are on your side of The World.

"I hope you will also give me the same consideration, Amber. This is part of the rules, as you well know. But I am reminding you, in case you forgot.”
