Two-Voice

Hey there! Remember me?
 
Hey...um no I don't. Sorry.
 
It's been so long since I've come out to play, maybe you've forgotten? That's ok! I'll give you some hints, we can make a game out of it! I've got pigtails mommy put in, and a brand new pink princess dress from grandma! You'll never see me without my dolly, especially at night when the monsters in my closet like to make noise. I don't like them, they're big meanies and try to scare me. So? Can you guess yet?
 
I'm sorry, I'm not sure.
 
...no? You still don't know who I am? But...but we spent so much time together...remember all the times you pretended the floor was made out of lava? That was me, I was there with you! Or what about when you got that big blue horsey? You and I would rock on it all day!
 
Look, I have no idea who you are, stop bugging me.
 
You still don't remember me? Not even a little bit? We were best friends! We would finger paint and help grandma decorate the cookies and daddy would always lift us onto his shoulders so we could put the star on top of the Christmas tree!
 
Did you say daddy? I don't have a sister...who are you?
 
Well I'm not gonna tell you now, since you don't remember me.
 
I'm not playing games anymore, who-
 
That's the problem! You're not playing games! You need to start being fun again! You never have time for me anymore. It's always work work work, no more searching for fairies or playing dress up.
 
I'm not a kid anymore.
 
Come on, pleeeeeeease? Lets go play again like we used to!
 
I can't, I have work to do.
 
Fine, I won't m-make you play with me if you h-hate me so much. Have fun with your stupid b-boring life!
 
Wait, I didn't mean yo make you cry. Please come back.
 
No! You don't need me anymore! No more mermaids for you! No more unicorns or ice cream sundaes or rainbows or fun! You'll never see me again!
