Where Are You?

Where are you?

It is May, 1995, and I am a sophomore at Fuller Theological Seminary's Graduate School of Psychology in southern California. I just found out that my girlfriend is really a lesbian and that my roommate has been dealing with the same feelings of emptiness and not belonging anywhere also. So for the second time in one night, after months of not talking with God - I am beginning the conversation again.

I am in the Republic of Gilead (which is somewhere in the U.S. in the future). The Commander has called me privately to his office - but it is illegal for us to be alone together. If anyone sees me, then I will have to suffer the punishments of the Commander's wife. My curiousity has won out though, as I am desperate for any connection to my life "before".
