Subconscious leak… Damn you Freud!
Just then he hears a shout from behind and turns back to see Tommy shouting at him: HELP ME WILL YOU!! But the call wasn’t too loud, as if he is trying to shout but stay quiet at the same time. The other members of the gym look disturbed at the noise he is making, almost angry at him, so he shrinks back to his previous quiet work of loading the plates onto the bar. Steve just frowns and turns away again.
Maybe that Tommy guy was something I should pay attention to? Is he significant in all this? Maybe he just really annoyed me and has forever etched a groove into my subconscious… A shit stain on my psyche, a skid mark on my mind. This call though, I should definitely take it.
