Amateur writer, fiction lover. I hope you enjoy what you find here.
I have always liked hospitals when I was a kid, I loved to wait there until the doctor was ready for me. He made me feel better and always gave me a lollipop. I have always had a pleasant experience at hospitals, but that changed when my mother was diagnosed with cancer. My mom was a very lovable woman, there was no one that could say anything against her, but now I hate waiting and the hopelessness I feel. No matter how many experimental treatments she went through, the doctor says that there is nothing more they can do. Today we are taking her to her house, so she can die there as she requested.
Imagine that you live in a house, and you have been living inside that house since you were born, all windows and doors are sealed. A woman and a man have always taken care of you, you think of them as your parents, but they do everything according to sacred notes that they find in a tube every morning. They have shown you the outside through books and videos but what they have shown you is that the outside is a hostile place full of dangerous creatures and harsh environment.
The Hero's Conundrum/Chapter 24
I woke up in the hospital, I didn’t die and then I heard someone coming and I pretended to be asleep. I know they are treating me here, but they are taking me to jail after this. I need to escape from here, so I waited for everyone to leave the room. Everything was really quiet, I opened mi eyes and sat on the bed. My wound is almost healed but it hurts like hell. As I’m getting out of bed I saw Calvin sleeping on a chair, I try not to make noise but he wakes up anyway, and started yelling;
The Hero's Conundrum/Chapter 23
What happened? My hair is black again and I remember I was very old, or was I? How did I get here? Oh yeah, I thought about getting out and got out. Is that a new power? I went to an empty alley and tried to use that power again y thought about going to Bansao’s cabin. I opened my eyes, and I was in the middle of the woods, it looks familiar this must be where his cabin will be. It seems like I can fast travel thru space now, but not thru time. Maybe this is the key to understanding time, so I try concentrating on the explosion, when Sammael mentioned that either I wake up or stay dreaming. When I opened my eyes I was seeing the explosion thru everyone’s eyes, I can’t explain it. Then I got scared and came back here.
The Hero's Conundrum/Chapter 22
The explosion was too close to us but then time stopped and this time neither Marduk nor I are able to move, we are frozen in mid explosion. I remember this! I’m able to move my fingers is not as hard to move as I thought. I can move if I want to but I remember that I couldn’t move when I was Marduk, I need to pretend that I can’t move easily. This is too tedious I move as slow as I can but I’m already on my feet and I grabbed Marduk’s hands. I remember that as Marduk I killed Bansao, but what if this is my chance to change things?
The Hero's Conundrum/Chapter 21
I have my head covered with a bag and I’m with Marduk on our way to Sarah’s village, we have been on the road and I’m in pain, I’m about to faint. They tied me to a chair besides Marduk, is really weird seeing this from this perspective. Sarah was in front of us and Marduk started talking
The Hero's Conundrum/Chapter 19
I woke up again covered in blood, but can’t complain, I had a good couple of peaceful years. Now I need to find out where and when I am, the only way is looking back at the previous camps or villages I have been. Well I start looking for camps again and this is getting tedious, but I got to keep going. I arrived at my camp at the exact time after the mine exploded, a while later my new crew came and found me alive. One of them said:
