The story of Jimmy and the future

Jimmy wasn’t prepared for what could come next, he barely knew what to do with his life but to face such a threat and carry the guilt of taking or ruining someone else’s life, wasn’t his idea. He had to make decisions and his choices were limited; time was running out. What could he do? Any action would affect the others’ lives, not only his and that could mean his future would be changed forever.

Time was passing by and it also carried more consequences, he had to decide what to do then. Many fears may come and freeze his actions, but any slip may cost too much. He was only of age, he couldn’t be guilty for all the consequences, or could he?

All Jimmy wanted was to be acknowledged by others, but not for doing what he was about to do, not like that. He felt his body shacking, his forehead burned and his hands were cold. A burning sensation came on to him at the back and he felt a heat like never before, he had just passed out! Why? He was ready to act, but it was too late, he was going to die without any purpose, he wasn’t going to be able to repair the damage, nor to apologize or say goodbye to his loved ones. He was meant to die alone and be forgotten; no one would remember him. As these thoughts came to Jimmy’s mind, he felt a void slowly eating him into oblivion.

That moment was to change everyone’s life and his. But he was not prepared for it, not like this. Life passed by in front of his eyes, he had not done anything, not even something worth to be remembered but his incoherence in past years; he was about to change, to do well. All his ideals left his mind, he couldn’t believe what a waste of life… Then a void started to invade his mind, loneliness filled his heart and he felt useless, he would pass to history unknown. What a waste of a life, of air and space; he had been given a chance to live.

Suddenly he heard his name, a voice far away was calling him… What is it? That voice, so stressed calling from afar.
