James Smith was sitting at his desk in his apartment playing some video games when suddenly he heard a growl come from his stomach.
Hmmmm I guess its about time I took a break to get some food thought James.
James got up from his chair and turned his computer off. As he looked around the room he noticed that everything had a layer of dust on it as it seemingly hasn been cleaned in a while. His thoughts were disrupted by how he wasn in the correct attire to go outside, so he needed to change his clothes and put some shoes on. He was currently just in some boxers. Once he was out of the house he walked along the sidewalk to the nearest convenience store.
”Welcome customer ” as he opened the door the he saw a clerk standing behind the counter to his left.
James proceeded to pick out some food from some of the premade dinners that were there. There were a lot of choices ranging from steak meals to vegetarian meals. In the end he chose some chicken with rice and a bag of chips. For a drink he went for some coffee as he felt it was going to be a long night.
James was a professional gamer, as a living he streamed the games he played so that people around the world could watch. He wasn famous but he had a good following. It gave him enough money to get around.
Tonight was the night that he decided he was going to be doing his 24 hour long stream. he had to get prepared for it, well if you count getting prepared mentally that is.
”Have a great day ” said the clerk in a very monotone voice, he didn seem to fancy his job.
As James left the store he decided to eat in a nearby park since he didn want to eat alone in his apartment.
James saw an odd old man when he was walking on his way to the park. The old man had a long white beard and long white hair. He seemed to be malnourished and very skinny, but at the same time he seemed to possess some weird aura around his body that makes one think hes much stronger and healthier than he looks. James saw this but didn pay attention to it cause he thought who could possibly look like that and still be healthy.
When James walked past the old man looked at him and at this time James felt this old man could see through everything about him.
”What a pity to die so young ” the old man mumbled as he passed by.
When James heard this he turned around to look at the old man since such a sentence was weird and he didn understand what he meant. But when he turned around the old man was nowhere to be seen.
James didn think much about it and just continued on his way towards the park.
As he arrived at the park he found a bench to sit on and proceeded to eat his food. As he ate he saw many people come and go. Some looked at him but most just ignored his existence. His food was a little bland and the chicken was dry but overall it was a meal that satisfied his hunger and to James that is all that matters.
When he finished his food he looked up towards the night sky at the stars that were there and thought to himself I guess its time to go back, I have to get ready to stream tonight
So he slowly got up from the bench and stretched his arms and legs, then made his way back to his apartment.
On his way back he happened to see one of his old friends from high school walk into a clothing store and decided that he should say hello.
He looked both ways and when there were no cars he decided to cross the road but as he got 3/4s of the way to the other side he heard a shout
”Get out of the way! ”
And that was when he turned to his left and saw a truck coming strait at him, when he looked in the windshield the driver had fallen asleep at the wheel.
At this point he realized that the truck was too close, he had no time to move out of the way. This was it, this was the end.
The second before the truck hit him he thought back the the words that the old man had said, he didn know if he somehow knew this was going to happen or if it was just a coincidence.
As the truck hit him he felt immense pain, pain that he has never felt in his entire life. It felt like his entire body was a rag and he was being wrung out. His whole life flashed before his eyes, his thoughts immediately went to when he was eight years old. He could vividly remember the day his parents had passed away. He remembers sitting at home playing with his toys when he heard a knock on the door. The babysitter had gotten up from the couch and when towards the door.
Good afternoon mam is the child James Smith here said a police man in a monotone voice.
At the time James had peeked his head around from the corner and the police man saw him.
”your going to have to come with us son, your parents have gotten into a car crash and didnt make it out, were going to have to take you in for now ” said the police man after he spotted James.
As the police man was bringing James out of the house all James could think was ”My parents are dead? ”
After that James life seemed to have gone downhill, he had to go to an orphanage and never ended up being adopted. The only way that James had made it through everything was the video game console that the orphanage director had gotten him for his birthday when he was 9.
At this point James felt as though his entire life was worthless, what was the point of his life, why him.
”Oh god, call an ambulance! ” said some woman.
”So young. ” said some man off to the side.
”Quickly, does anyone know how to stop the bleeding ” said some man who was using a towel in his hand to stop whatever blood he can.
As James lay there he felt as if it was getting colder and colder, soon he could no longer keep his eyes open.
Before his eyes fully closed in the distance James could see the old man in the distance point his finger at him. Some weird white light shot out of the old mans finger and hit directly into James forehead.
Thats him thats the old guy from earlier! thought James
What was that? Did he do something to me? Will I survive through this to be able to figure out the truth behind that old man? Or am i just having a hallucination before I die. James was unsure of what was happening, all of his thoughts had become a jumbled mess because of the lack of oxygen going to his mind.
Is there a Heaven? Is there a Hell? Is there a god? Will i die? James didn know what he was thinking about at this point but he somehow knew deep down in his heart, this was the end.
Somehow after those last thoughts James mind was clear and he thought
I hope no one finds my secret file on my computer
As James thought about his secret files his mind seemed to become chaotic again.
After countless thoughts he was finally calm again.
Whats going to happen to me?
That was the last thing that he thought before he closed his eyes and he blacked out.
