I died on the other planet
Instead of heeding the red light, I decided to cross the road. Why? There's not a single car on the road. What's the point of waiting 2 minutes? I could have reached home 2 minutes earlier, eat my lunch 2 minutes earlier, complete my assignments 2 minutes earlier, have my dinner 2 minutes earlier, go to bed 2 minutes earlier and have an extra 2 minutes of sleep. No one's watching. I dashed across the road. The next thing I know, my whole body landed on the floor. The smell of blood - it's disgusting. Even the smell of it makes me nauseous, I probably faint at the sight of it.
Someone called for help. I was rescued. I manage to escape death.
No one cared. I died.
It's wrong to cross the road if the light is shining red. It means it's angry and if you jay-walk, you are not only risking your life, but also doing something illegal - You will get fine, if you are living in my country ... Anyway, I waited. I went home slightly later - 2 minutes later. I greeted my mom. She smiled. I had my lunch, and the next thing I know, it's time for bed. Usually, I slept around 11pm but today is just unusual, 11:02pm. Somehow, looking at the time just makes me feel relieved... lol... Shouldn't I be sleeping. Night Night, everyone ;)
If only I knew what happened to the other side of me...
