    " turn on the radio, please. "
    "alright. "
    a crackle, then quiet jazz began playing in the background of the house.
    " what was the song called again? "
    " i don't know. i wouldn't know. "
    " right. you're not from this world. " the sentence was spoken with apprehension. 
    " you still suspect me of being a charlatan. i brought you strange contraptions from distant lands, drew you creatures that came alive with a touch of my hand, sung songs of ancient, and yet you do not believe? " exasperation, laden with otherworldly exhaustion laced the words that were delicately spoken. 
    " it's hard to believe you travel by an old camera. " the speaker laughed now, the sound dry and hollow. 
    an annoyed sigh escaped from the strange traveler's mouth.  
    " this conversation has been repeated many times. 'beating a dead horse', you might say. " 
    the radio crackled loudly, static interrupting the conversation. 
    " you don't have to continue, then. goodnight. " the speaker stood up, turning away from the traveler.
    " goodnight. "
 
    fabric rustled, and a camera snapped. then, complete silence. 
    
    the traveler was gone once more, off to another place where people doubted him.    
halloa! first time writing on here; my writing's kind of everywhere since i haven't written in a while (i'm also a tad anxious; i haven't "published" before). do throw me some critiques though, i'd really appreciate that. <3
