Uh, hi! This is Ca- I mean Chuck Shurley, just- Chuck, sorry. [Indistinct fumbling noises] Leave a message after the beep and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. Thanks?

Oh-- Chuck, hello. I'm sorry for calling so late, especially if I woke you...

No- no, I'm good. [Since the mugging with lasers and Batman and his friend trying to chop his head in half nbd Chuck hasn't been sleeping a whole lot.] I was awake.

Is, uh, is everything okay?

Yes. Oh yes, I'm fine. Are you all right? I realize this may not be the best time to trouble you... [Really, he'd called the first over-age person he could think of who wouldn't give him a tongue-lashing.]

He called me tonight. And he was--on something. Some sort of illicit substance, and he claimed it was for insomnia. And the way he was talking, it just...scared me.

[Oh, shit. Chuck curses softly, but (he hopes?) not loud enough for the kid to hear.]

How do you know it was illicit? If you've ever talked to someone awake on Ambien, it sounds a lot like hitting a crackpipe.

Um, no, I... I don't have intimate knowledge about the subject, I'm afraid.

He was--hallucinating.

Okay, Kurt, breathe. Take a deep breath.

This still sounds like Ambien to me. I knew a girl who took Ambien and wound up having a conversation with her towels.

This doesn't necessarily have to mean something awful.

He said they looked like little white mints. I don't know, Chuck, he was just so...

He just said things. And not even just tonight, he's... He hasn't been himself for weeks. He's so-- He was always so happy. I'd see him smile every day, and he loved life so much, and he was always so enthusiastic about everything, and now he's just so...

[Swallows.] He started crying. Tonight, on the phone. He was crying and he said he felt like he was slipping away.
