My name is Chance, and I have a voice in my head. Ever since that day, there’s been a voice in my head. It hides in the depths of my mind, in the corners of my imagination.

Clothes laid in a crumpled stack at the end of a twin-sized bed, a trail of soot-covered socks creating a road to the head of the bed. A phone was gripped loosely in the hold of a teenage girl.
