Jeff…my name is Jeff
What happened Jeff?
What do you mean, what happened?
Which one were you?
I, I do-
I remember a hospital
I remember a girl
She had a knife to my throat?
What was she saying?
I’m not sure…
It’s like a movie on mute
I can’t make it out.
I can’t even read her lips
She’s shouting too quickly!
There’s a detective but,
It’s understandable you’d experience discomfort…
Try to remain focused though.
We know you were an only child, so there was no twin…
Who are you, Jeff?
I-I met her at a bar?
I don’t remember her name
I think I was working a case?
Why is she?
I don’t know who she is…
I know there’s an unmarked grave
Were we close at one point?
She was innocent…I think?
I said not to jump
I shouldn’t do it…
Don’t jump, Jeff?
Is there anyone else in the room?
I’m screaming at myself to do it!
I look depraved!
The other me is telling me not to
The girl has a knife to my throat…right?
She’s there, but, it looks as though
I’m holding the knife?
Don’t do it, baby?
She whispered into my ear
It wasn’t your fault
WHY?! What’s happening?!
I’m having another memory…
I ask her if I need to walk her home?
She says no
I leave her
Then…I see a man
It looks like the me in the room telling me to jump
He has a knife
He’s…CUTTING HER OPEN!
He…I? Covered in blood?!
I BURIED HER?!
NONE OF IT MAKES SENSE!
HOW IS IT NOT MY FAULT?!
I’m screaming the same thing at myself in the hospital
Other workers are in the room now
I think they are trying to talk me down?!
What happens next, Jeff?
The one urging me to kill myself…that me…is lunging for me!
I step back but…fall out the window behind me…
Did you fall out…or did you jump?
I’m not sure?
Do you remember the girls name?
I remember her telling me she’s sorry…
Then I hit the pavement & I awoke here…
AM I DEAD?!
That is irrelevant
What do you mean?
IT SEEM PRETTY FUCKING RELEVANT TO ME!
Calm yourself, Jeff.
NO! I’M AS FUCKING CALM AS I AM GOING TO G-
I remember looking up as I was falling…
The violent me smiling
Th-the girls name was…
I-I don’t understand?
I think I murdered her?!
The night at the bar…it was Halloween…
I’m not a detective, I just went as one.
Go on, Jeff.
I was drinking heavily
She was into me
I let her go home after she said she could go alone
Then…next thing I remember, I’ve killed her & buried her.
You’re positive you weren’t conscious during the murder?
Yes, yes, I’m positive.
I woke up the next day after burying her & tried to call her.
She never picked up.
I went looking for her, she wasn’t home…
There was a note, addressed to me.
It had a photo of the killing
On the back it read:
You did this…
IT WAS EVEN A PHOTO OF ME WITH HER DISMEMBERED BODY!
I-I don’t remember any of it though…
I think I got in my car
I was speeding…
It was distraught…
I lose control
Then, I’m in the hospital.
It’s okay, we’ve heard enough, Jeff.
We believe you are suffering from a condition that hasn’t been diagnosed.
There’s a theme of this throughout your life.
Judging your memories & your emotions throughout the interpretation of such…
We believe this is something you had no control over.
Furthermore, we’ve deemed you a case for return.
What do you mean?
Your memories will be wiped, or rather, buried.
Your soul always keeps memories but, upon returning to a new life…
Souls do not always have access to such memories.
You will essentially be what some call reincarnated.
Your soul will begin anew as a child in a new life & upon Death you will be judged again.
Wait, that’s real?
You will not remember this.
Good luck with your 2nd chance, Jeff…
Did we choose wisely?
I believe we did.
Yes, I believe the evidence overall as well as his past history says as much…
Do you doubt the choice?
I believe he has a condition but…
Did you consider the night of the murder he’d been drinking heavily?
At best it helped trigger another episode…
One which results in the death of an innocent soul
At worst, the alcohol is the reason entirely & he wasn’t having an episode
…Murdered someone because he has homicidal tendencies…
Our job is to judge based off the evidence given.
Has he ever shown any sign of being homicidal outside of these episodes?
The best ones, hide it well.
I’m not doubting your judgment per say…
We however, have a huge responsibility & I want you to keep in mind our decisions
…They have consequences…
