Being a degenerate is okay these days

Jae gave his half-visible companion a thin-lipped, humorless smile in response. Had he done things that he considered crazy? Sure. Talking to corpses was crazy. Killing someone you hated for no reason was crazy. Wondering if you were seeing things, if you were really being followed and taunted by some weirdo in a mask was crazy.

He still wouldn't come out from behind the shelf. He had good reason not to. But was that all there was to it?

Jae drained the rest of his water bottle and tried to quash the thrill of paranoia in the back of his mind.

It's not paranoid if someone really is out to get you. It's not paranoid if someone really is out to get you.

If.

Was he going mad with guilt over his actions? Did he feel guilty?

Was somebody out there trying to make him feel guilty?

It didn't make sense for someone following him to ask about Clarice. It didn't make sense for someone to put on a horror movie mask and follow him in the first place. Nothing made sense. Jae had just slept but he was so, so tired.

He dropped the water bottle to the carpet and bent over to retrieve the crossbow.

"Maybe."

Maybe everyone was crazy. Maybe no one was. Which was the worse possibility?
"Art enriches the community, Steve, no less than a pulsing fire hose, or a fireman beating down a blazing door. So what if we're drawing a nude man? So what if all we ever draw is a nude man, or the same nude man over and over in all sorts of provocative positions? Context, not content! Process, not subject! Don't be so gauche, Steve, it's beneath you."
