I was working on writing our book but was trying to use AI to fill out the text.
Every time I entered the text, it came out jumbled, and I couldn’t read it
It was also partially covered with advertisements for Oreo cookies or a modern record player that still looked like a gramophone with a large brass gramophone bell speaker.
I tried several times, but it was just frustrating.
That night I woke up in the middle of the night and got up.
I wandered into the hall, leaving Donna to sleep without disturbing her.
This was a house that nobody was living in but was fully furnished.
To the right, down the hallway, I went to the room with a nest of blankets and throw pillows and watched about 3 minutes of an old movie on a small television.
I turned it off and went back to bed. Donna rolled over and said, “What are you doing?”
I said, “Getting back in bed!”
“But you are dressed.”
So, I began to take my clothes off. That’s when I heard someone in the bathroom. I went to look, and a young woman walked into the hall. “There is a person!” I said.
Donna sat up. I stopped undressing and re-dressed. I walked into the hall and saw another woman fixing her hair in the mirror in the bathroom. She closed the door. “How long have you been here?” She asked.
“A few days,” I replied.
By now, Donna gets up and joins me in the hall.
“Have you heard the big noise?” The woman asks through the door.
I look at Donna. “I haven’t. But I’ve enjoyed the cello music we hear occasionally.”
Donna looked at me puzzled and says she hadn’t heard any loud noise.
Then a short German man walks out of another room.
“Oh, great,” he says, “Wir kommen aus dem Urlaub zurück und Leute kommen und übernehmen das Haus!” He mutters as he walks through the hallway and out into a larger room.
“How did you find this place?” The first woman asks. “And by the way, that’s our bed you are sleeping in.”
I start to explain, “We were told….”
I wake up.
