“I’m not listening to you.”
She was talking to herself. There was no one else to talk to. She was her only conversational partner, and some days, that was good enough. But on days like today, when this irrational cloud of depression settled deep in her brain and she tried to think of something to talk about, all she could think of was how sick she was of talking to herself. All she talked about was what a genius she was, or testing, or Science (and she was sick of the way she talked about it, as if it were something worthy of adulation; why did she personify the damn word, anyway?).
Well. That wasn’t all she talked about. But she didn’t want to think about that right now.
Of course you want to think about it.

Alec was out searching the jungle for abandoned human supplies, so I stayed back in the cave and tidied up to make room for any new things that he found.
I was so busy cleaning up, that I almost didn't notice the voices coming closer to the cave. They sounded female, and they were all laughing at something.
The hairs on the back of my neck stood up, and I quickly hid within the piles of boxes and other things, and I grabbed a few pillows for extra coverage.
No sooner had I hidden, I heard the voices resonating in the cave.
"Alec! Where are you?" one voice said.
"Come out and play!" another said.
"Wait," one of them said.
"What is it?" a voice asked.
"I smell something," she said.
I gulped, knowing she was probably smelling me. I held my breath and remained perfectly still. The silence in the room pounded in my ears.
Suddenly, a hand grabbed my foot and pulled me out into view. I yelped as I was held upside by my foot.

You remember what we have learnt last time? The "Janai" thing I told you that the negative form of "desu" is "janai" & both of them have a past form "Datta" & "janakatta" .
I told you also that the next lesson (This lesson) will be about the interrogative form but I changed my mind because it's too easy All what you have to do is to add the particle "ka" at the end of the sentence Like this:
"Anata wa Hiroto desu" . "You're Hiroto"
"Anata wa Hiroto desu ka?" .. "Are you Hiroto?"
So I decided to teach you something more useful & I guess you will like it!! How to say "I like something" & "I don't like something"!!
