I Am Not Shallow
See? I know I know I don’t picture that well…What? Look closer. Loser. The L.E.F.T corner… See me now?
Cool eh?! No my timing wasn’t off. It isn’t easy taking your own photo when you’re a shadow! And try using my moronic Steve!
Shallow? Me? You’re always crazy about winning Imprints contests, what’s up with that? I bet you weigh your human, probably force him to eat more so you can siphon off more power for the Imprints…
Am not shallow!
Zeihh. Sorry, ok, I take that back. Don’t tell mom, please?
I know. We’re not supposed to be vain. I do. I do respect our codes… No I didn’t mess with him-Promise.
It took all my concentration (and more; I sucked some of his) to get it together for a few precious seconds…
I was at it all morning, in the park. I almost got him to click twice. First time I got a bit confused, instead of moving his finger I ended up making him sneeze. Then, his mind mixed up the signals, he farted. Tricky stuff.
By the time I could focus again, he was back inside packing the camera. Had to do it then, he wasn’t going to remember that instinct to take a photo of his shadow any time soon after that.
So, here I am!
I just, I dunno. We just transcend when they die, you know and…it’s not fair. No one will ever know I was here. I wanted to capture me.
