Researcher Alces: Good afternoon, Mr. Erickson. I'm here to ask you about your ability.

SCP-XXXX: You mean the memory thing?

Researcher Alces: Yes, can you remember the first time you've experienced someone else's memory?

SCP-XXXX: Well, kinda, it was a long time ago. All I can remember is that me and mom were going through a drive-through. One second I was eating a burger and then the next I was in some rando's living room watching them play Smash Bros. It was weird at the time, but now I've just grown to accept it.

Researcher Alces: It must be something that happens quite often if you've come to accept it.

SCP-XXXX: Oh, nah, I've just had this for two decades, maybe more? Most of the time it doesn't matter. Really the only time it happens, outside of fast food, is when I want it to.

Researcher Alces: And when would you want this to happen?

SCP-XXXX: I mean, it depends on a lot. Stress, boredom, or even if I need to relax. It's been a nice little escape for the past few months, I get to kick back, relax and watch some cheesy 80's film.

Researcher Alces: Is that what you were you doing that this morning? You were making a lot of noise.

SCP-XXXX: Oh, shit, sorry, I usually don't get that loud. I'll try to keep it down next time we watch something.

Researcher Alces: We?

SCP-XXXX: Oh yeah, I watch them with my husband.

Researcher Alces: Your husband?

SCP-XXXX: Yeah, he loved those shitty films.

Researcher Alces: You are aware that he's passed, right?

SCP-XXXX: Well, I mean, of course, I'm aware, but I still try to keep him alive in my mind. It's just nice to see him after a hard night, or a terrible nightmare.

Researcher Alces: And you do this by eating his hair?

SCP-XXXX: Yeah, so I can see him again. Sometimes, it's just him at his office, sometimes he's at the store, but most of the time it's him at home, watching a movie with me.

Researcher Alces: And do you have control of these memories?

SCP-XXXX: Oh, no not at all, it's nice little surprises every time.

Researcher Alces: So, you've never once seen something you didn't want to see during these memories?

SCP-XXXX: Well, not really, I mean there's bad stuff, don't get me wrong, but it's all small things.

Researcher Alces: What if something bad happens to him?

SCP-XXXX: It won't matter, he'll be fine the next time I see him.

Researcher Alces: What happens when there's no next time?

SCP-XXXX: What do you mean?

Researcher Alces: When you run out of his hair, what are you going to do?

[SCP-XXXX shifts back and forth before scooting their chair back.]

SCP-XXXX: It's nothing worth worrying about, I have plenty. They'll last long enough.

Researcher Alces: And how long is long enough?

SCP-XXXX: Maybe a year or two, as I said before, it's nothing to worry about. I'll be over it by then.

Researcher Alces: And if you're not?

SCP-XXXX: I'll be fine, so long as I don't leave him on a bad note.

Researcher Alces: And if you do?

SCP-XXXX: I won't.

<End Log>

Interviewer: Researcher Alces

Foreword: On 2019/7/15, SCP-XXXX was found within their cell with approximately thirty percent of their total body hair missing and several self-inflicted bite wounds along their arms and legs.

<Begin Log>

Researcher Alces: How are you doing today Mr. Erickson?

SCP-XXXX: I'm fine.

Researcher Alces: Would you care to tell me why you are covered in bite marks?

SCP-XXXX: I ran out.

Researcher Alces: Hmm?

SCP-XXXX: I-I just want to see him a final time.

Researcher Alces: So you ate your hairs?

SCP-XXXX: Not at first.

Researcher Alces: What do you mean?

SCP-XXXX: I tried to eat some of his hairs again, though that didn't work… they only tasted like shit.

Researcher Alces: And then you tried to eat your own.

SCP-XXXX: Yeah, but that didn't work either. I don't want to leave him that way.

Researcher Alces: What happened?

SCP-XXXX: I-I just didn't expect him to go that way.

Researcher Alces: What do you mean?

SCP-XXXX: I mean-fuck, they-they told me he died impact, but fucking hell, that wasn't true.

[SCP-XXXX brings their knees up to their chest and begins to shake.]

SCP-XXXX: I-I just don't want to leave him that way. He-he was screaming out for me. I- I tried to hold him, to comfort him. I couldn't do jacked shit.

Researcher Alces: I…I'm sorry to hear that.

SCP-XXXX: I-I just want to see him one last time.

Researcher Alces: I don't know if I can help you with that.

[SCP-XXXX looks up at Researcher Alces and takes a deep breath.]

SCP-XXXX: C-Can I have a piece of your hair?

Researcher Alces: What?

SCP-XXXX: Can I have your hair?

Researcher Alces: Why would you want that?

SCP-XXXX: I mean, there's a chance that one of you have seen him before.

Researcher Alces: No one here has seen him.

SCP-XXXX: There's a chance that they might've.

Researcher Alces: We're a state away from your home town, I can assure you, no one has seen him.

SCP-XXXX: I mean, I can try.

Researcher Alces: I can right now tell you, no one here, except for you, has seen him.

SCP-XXXX: I just want to see him one last time.

[SCP-XXXX begins to cry.]
