characters of each story is something so beautiful to me, But there is something better then making the work & thats all of you guys reading my work. ELIGERE is about living life to the fullest, being free within the energy or art & love, tapping into a spirit that is a never ending freefall of bones of angels. I made this project to show the world there is still an ambition for love & peace. But sometimes to find peace of mind you have to overcome lots of noise. ELIGERE is very different because its so real, the stories tap into fantasy but finding reality in fiction is very pure & very real. ELIGERE is the way i see the world, the way i see struggle & the way i see death. Somehow i can't see reality the way others see it, i see reality in a very enchanted way, and this is my way of showing you all how important the gift of life is. When i write i create a roller coaster, something that can make you all feel uncomfortable but also free. ELIGERE will make you feel free & will expose the true emotions we all really feel inside. ELIGERE IS NOW, ELIGERE IS YOURS. Here is ELIGERE.....
There they are, the moon, the stars. So still over the beautiful ferris wheel. It was the first date and the love and passion will give birth to itself on this night. They held their hands as they walked through every attraction, the lights of the carnival reflected on her eyes as she stares at him. It was the perfect night and everything seemed so right, she remembers looking at him every day through the blinds of her locker at school, she would dream of the day she would hold his hand and tonight her dream finally came true. Fireworks will infest her stomach once her lips touched his, he knew he would reach for her hips when they reach the top of the ferris wheel as they overlooked the sea of lights. It was going to be perfect. He pulled her with excitement as he knew they finally had the chance to get on the ferris wheel. After the tickets were given he holds one hand up so she can hold it as he helped her into the her seat. Once they were settled she gave him a look, a look to confirm that the limit of her temptation for a kiss has overflowed, but he rejected her invitation because his destination for the kiss was to be at the top, he wanted everything to be perfect, perfectly planned. They felt a sudden jolt as the ferris wheel began to finally move. He looked down and noticed everything began to get smaller. It seemed like they were going to reach the sky as the ferris wheel went higher and higher. But then a sudden stop, they were at the top. His heart was like the engines of the titanic. His mouth went dry and his hands so sweaty but he knew it had to be done.
She looked at him and he looked at her and as he headed for her lips she headed for his, he closed
his eyes and finally felt her sweet lips on his. His heart stopped, then began to take speed. The butterflies in their stomachs were finally free to fly. Both their noses rubbed as they pulled away from each other and gave one another little smiles they will always remember. This moment was so beautiful they didn't notice the the ferris wheel made it to the bottom and the operator was waiting for them to exit the wheel. Both of their worlds stopped once he drove her home, once they were both home all they can think about we're each other and that very special moment they shared that night. They tried to close their eyes under the stars but the constant beats of hearts was a constant reminder of the love that had begun to grow inside them. They were young and had made it to their last year of high school. They were young but noticed they only had each other in their isolated estranged worlds. They had loved ones but their constant loneliness projected the need for the love they searched for. They had no love in their homes for which both their parents knew nothing of love, but they knew in their hearts they were ready to create their own journey with one another, this was puppy love. Months flew by since the first kiss, their love grew, she met his parents, and he met hers. Their parents didn't want them together because they were “giving themselves to much attention”, they were to focused on each other, but the parents were just jealous of the love they wanted so bad. Time grew and they exchanged gifts and beautiful hugs. One night he took her to the roof, with her fear of heights she predicted a horrible night, but she was wrong. He told her to cover her big green eyes and took her to the edge of the tower, he held one hand as he stood behind her and whispered in her ears, “Open them”, the sudden darkness turned into millions of stars and a bright red moon. Tears rolled down her cheeks, not one soul in the world has ever showed her such a beautiful sight. She was first speechless but said a thousand words with just one kiss, he sat down next to her holding hands on the edge of the tower and suddenly her fear of heights went away. She felt safe in his arms. That same night they promised each other they will never hurt each other, they would always be faithful and never let temptation overflow their souls, this was growing love.
Graduation was over and reality kicked in, they were planning to move in together and begin to start a life together but thunder began to grow louder in the distance, the boys father grew more angry at the boys success, the boy had no home now. A family was divided and he was alone until the girl saved him from the burning fire. She was asleep one calm night then she heard the cries from her window, she looked out and there he was looking up at her from her room with tears of sadness but suddenly joy. He sneaked in the house and they laid in bed together both with tears in their eyes. They talked about everything and stared into each other's eyes to try to find each other’s souls, there was something about this night that made the love grow even more. She supported him and had his back whenever he needed aid, he would do the same. She rubbed his face and her hand was shaking, it was getting so powerful. They kissed before the boy would go under her bed to hide from her parents in the morning but suddenly he began to cough and cough and cough. Her eyes began to get larger and she patted his back but nothing worked, the coughs went louder and louder and she grew worried, blood fell down his lips from inside his mouth, it went all over the floor. The girl told him to drink some water as she quietly went to the kitchen to get napkins and when she returned the coughs stopped. Nor him or her knew what was going on but it seemed as if her distance from him in those few seconds cured him. She cleaned his mouth and the floor and rubbed the napkin on her chest, she wanted his insides on her. after such a long night of fear they finally went to sleep. This was real love. The next day her parents went off to work and they had the house to themselves, they thought of ways to make the boy go back home and make up with his parents but there was no way that will ever happen, the things that were said that night let the knife in to deep to cure the slashes. They sat together and watched movies and looked at the clock every twenty minutes to make sure the boy had time to hide before the girls parents returned from work. The girl fell asleep in the middle of the film they were watching so the boy runs out to the local supermarket to find items to make the girls day one she would remember, he spent his only money to buy roses, candles, and two condoms. He felt this was the right time, he knew his love for her was strong enough for him to enter her glitter box. An hour later the girl is woken up by the boy, “I want to show you something”, he says with a smile on his face. Her hair messy and eyes half open they walk up the stairs to her room, they see a closed door that lead to the room of all opportunities, her room. The door was unlocked and the hint of flowers and candle wax filled the house, she was surprised and began to cry. He turned around and looked at her and opened his heart and let out the love ghost, “I love you”, he said with a smile that can light up a dark room. She didnt think and a second later she replied with an “I love you to”. They had three hours left. He laid her down on the floor and kissed her neck softly, everything stopped as they began to move. The moon and the sun collided, this moment was forever. And as he entered her body everything was reborn. Every moan was a signal of pure passion and love, they looked into eachothers eyes and they made love and both their souls began to dance. This was powerful love.
Day after day went by after their first time and the boy was still sleeping under the girls bed. Every night they would snuggle and kiss, until one stormy night. They both opened up their hearts to each other, they told each other every single memory of their lives. That night they finally knew everything about eachother, in and out. Opening up seemed to be the last step of their test of love for eachother, they had nothing left to do except love more but on this stormy night the cough came back. Harder and harder. More and more blood was spilling out of his mouth. The girl began to scream and had no choice but to wake her parents, she was in such a sticky spot. She ran to get them and on her way to her parents room she noticed the coughs stopped so she ran back into the room to see if he was feeling better but her touch made the coughs resume. She tried to cover her fear and tried to help him but he was losing to much blood so she had to go and get her parents to help her. Hours later the boy woke up in a hospital bed with an IV in his veins. He was in the room filled with doctors, he was looking for the girl but the doctors told him visiting hours were over, he was confused and asking multiple questions. He asked for his parents but they did not bother to visit him. The doctors told him the girl wanted to stay but her parents refused her to stay even before the visiting hours were over. He asked the doctors what was wrong with him but the doctors just looked at him and said he will be fine and will be ready to leave by tomorrow morning, everything was happening so fast, he still was not aware of the danger that was yet to come so he slept and dreamed of his love. This was dangerous love. The next morning the boy woke up to a beautiful face with red eyes, it was his love. She walked miles from her home to the hospital taking advantage of the time her parents are away at work to go see him, they forbid her to ever see him again. He began to smile and his heart began to go fast, to fast. The coughs were born again, this time he also felt his heart get larger and larger, big enough to explode. The girl screamed for the doctors and they came rushing into the room telling the girl to get out, the doctors began to inject medicine into him to stop the shaking, coughing and bleeding but nothing was working. Nurses came to the girl and told her she had to go down to the lobby and wait, the entire area was filled with doctors trying to control something they still were not aware of, suddenly his heart went back to its normal size and no more blood was coming from his mouth. The doctors did not take no time to examine him and see what was making him react this way, the doctors took xrays of his chest and seen something that was very confusing. His lungs and heart were getting larger. But an hour later they took one more xray and noticed his lung size decreased. The doctors were confused but wanted to study the origin of his symptoms, every time he would begin to have an attack after he is calm they would take xrays. They finally called the girl upstairs once everything was calm, she entered the room and once everything seemed well and cleaned up the meters began to beep once again, the boy was sick again. A pattern was born and the doctors kept the boy in the hospital for one more week, later that week the girl was with her family on their family vacation and suddenly the boy was feeling better and was more healthy. The doctors noticed no more inflammation and was planned to be released on that same day until the girl returned from her vacation to go visit him and kiss him. The doctors were confused, they have heard of inflammation but never heard of it occurring at random times then healing itself by itself so they decided to conduct a surgery by chaining his lung and heart to prevent inflammation, the girl stood by him and cried with him. She was not aware she was killing him. This was scary love.
It was the day of the surgery and the boys eyes began to lower, everything went black. As they opened his chest to lock his heart and lungs the boy began to see images of a broken heart, a heart bleeding. He then heard a voice say “Say goodbye ahead of time, to save your life you have to divide”. He seen an image of a beating heart on a cornfield, suddenly a silhouette of the girl coming from the distance, as she got closer the heart began to beat quicker and quicker, she ran towards the heart to help it but the heart exploded. He woke up five hours later. As he recovered he kept thinking of the voice and the image of the exploding heart, he tried to unlock the chain that was holding all the answers. He kept thinking and thinking until he heard footsteps in the distance, it was his love. She walked in and his body began to ache, he felt his heart get bigger. She screamed once again and ran for a doctor, then suddenly he felt better. He couldn't believe what he was thinking. He didn't believe what he was thinking but everything he seen and felt could not just be a coincidence .The voice he heard and what he just noticed made his mind go other places. He thought he was crazy for thinking shes the reason he gets sick but once she came back with the doctors it then started to get bad again. After a couple of more days in the hospital and visits from the girl he finally noticed the reason he will get sick, he couldn't believe it but his body will always begin to hurt once she will get closer to him. He felt as if god was testing his love for her, if he would go above and beyond for their love. But suddenly One night he called her from the hospital and lied telling her the doctors are not allowing visitors for his final two days, he told her he would visit her once he's released. She was sad but understood, after two healthy days he was finally let go. With no one to take him home He walked miles with only 75 cents in his pockets, he then found a payphone and called her. He told her to meet him at star park, a park close to the girls home, he walked one more mile and finally seen her sitting on a bench, she seen him from the distance and ran to him. As she ran blood began to fall from his nose, she stopped as she noticed the blood, she walked to him to help him but the boy yelled “DON'T COME ANY CLOSER!”. She stood in shock and confusion. “I don't know what's going on babe, but I think i'm dying”, the boy cried. “What are you talking about?, what's going on?”, she asked. He stood quiet but knew he had to tell her, “i think the closer we are to each other the more I die, i know i'm crazy but i feel it inside babe, i just love you so much its becoming stronger than us, feels like gods testing us or something, i'm not sure babe! i'm scared as much as you are.”
The boy tries to explain as blood runs down his nose, the girl cried thinking theres no salvation for her. She was killing the love of her life and she couldn't even touch him to let him know everything was going to be okay, she felt like a criminal and wanted to leave him alone so he can live a full life but nothing on earth can break them apart, they stood in the park for hours apart from each other to try to maintain the boys heart from exploding, they were facing opposite each other next to different trees, they had to shout at each other in the empty park. She was hurt she wasn't able to touch him but she was happy that she was at least close to him, she thought in her heart to leave him alone so he can be happy but she loved him to much, and he loved her so very much, he didn't want to let her go. Everyone has rejected him but she was always there since the beginning on that ferris wheel, he knew she was hurting him but he couldn't leave. He wanted to grow old with her and now hes not able to hug her anymore. “You know i love you right?”, asked the girl “Of course”, said the boy “you can leave if you want, i don't want to hurt you anymore. Nothing on earth can make my love for you stop but i'm killing you, seeing you with another pretty girl would hurt but true love will flourish if i let you go.”, said the girl “But you're the only one for me baby”, said the boy she lied to him over and over thinking that her love for him would go away and she would be strong enough to see the man of her dreams with another women, she was young and had a whole life ahead of her, but she knew youth should not determine true or false love, Their love was to powerful to contain, nothing on earth can break their love apart, there was no way out except with each other, They knew in their hearts what was going to happen, they both seemed like they were ready for anything.
“Are your parents home?”, the boy asked “No they're at dinner with friends, we barely talk since that night, they left a note on the fridge telling me they were going out, didnt bother me since we barely talk anyway, why do you ask?”, said the girl. “Are you ready for anything?”, he asked. Her own chains finally were unlocked, she was afraid but ready for the future, “I'm ready”, the girl cried The boy told the girl to head to the house first, the boy followed. She went to the bathroom and opened the medicine cabinet, the little pills began to rock. She then entered the room and layed on the bed waiting for him to enter the house, as he went closer to the room his body began to demolish. Everything was happening so fast but this moment was reality. He laid next to her, pale skin, blood dripping from his eyes and mouth. His body shaking even more. He was shoulder to shoulder with her, touching her. She was afraid, crying but she held his hand and gave him a kiss. Blood filled her lips. She extended her arm and looked into her drawer and pulled out a picture, it was a ferris wheel, she took the image right before they left the carnival. As the boy died he laughed a little remembering every moment he shared on that ferris wheel. “my love for you is forever, I love you so much” , the boy said. “I love you more, you have changed my life”, cried the girl. The boys heart and lungs began to grow bigger and bigger, the chains that tried to control the pressure finally broke. Suddenly his heart exploded, she looked at him one last time crying her eyes out, he took one last breath of life, he opened his mouth fully and suddenly a butterfly flew out of his mouth, out of his soulless body. The pills began to swim in her stomach and she closed his eyelids. Then she closed hers. They never cared about what their friends would think or her parents when they find them laying there soulless, she knew this would be the time they would finally care. He knew he couldn't be apart from her, she knew distance was impossible. Every single second of that night they never let go of their hands. Every emotion was gone, no more fear, no more worries. This was sacrificial love.
His hands were cold, his hands were a reflection of the cell in which he sat in, his vision was only bars & the smell of innocent blood. His cellmates just stare at him with fear, the bags under their eyes are a stamp that confirms their fear of the afterlife. His nickname was tin man because he had no heart, no one knew the soul inside the flesh. Everyone knew the man from the headlines, the man who murdered that entire family. The man who took away the most important thing a person can have in the world, life. He sits in the corner with the devil in his eyes, his hands sculptured into a fist. He has the urge to kill & takeaway beautiful things from beautiful hearts. The guard unlocks the cell and tells him to get up from the cold wet corner, he looks up at him & takes a picture with his soul for which this would be the last time he would ever see him, as he walked away from his cell and next to the guard with his hands cuffed with metal he tries to remember everything he once knew but emptiness filled his mind except his knife entering the little girls heart. He tried to erase that awful memory but his mind was only filled with the murders of the rest of the family, BLOOD. BLOOD. BLOOD. He wanted to think of a flower to take his mind off the poison that will soon fill his veins, but he was to late. He was now laying on a bed, ready to die. He was now ready to enter the other side, he was afraid but he couldn't feel his heart beating, If only they knew how sorry he was. How much he wanted to turn back time to never hurt anyone again. He couldn't tell the world that he was hurt also, his heart was taken away from him at a young age, he was stripped from his innocence & beaten until he cried blood. He was trained to hate, he knew nothing of love, everyone knew the cold blood in the statues veins but not one soul knew about the flowing colors that once painted the masterpiece, his murders were a mistake that he can never return. He frowned every single day, one tear flowing down his eyes as he thinks on many times he begged but can never change the mistakes he has done, and now he will pay for his many regrets. No man should be forgiven they say, The tin man does not believe it, He prays. He then finally realized he was looking up at the ceiling laying down on the bed with tubes running up his flesh. He can try to scream to find the end of the rainbow but only souls with hearts can survive the storm. He wants to say goodbye to his loved ones but there is no one around him to love. He begins to sweat and his throat felt so dry, he was about to cross the other side. He wanted to unstrap the straps that holds his feet and hands tight, he felt like Jesus on the cross, he felt naked in a room filled with clothes, he was freefalling into a never ending pool of memories that just makes him feel empty. He looked around one last time and looked at the faces that never cared, they were emotionless and they were just ready to pull the plug, he knew they were ready to kill. He sucked in one last piece of air, he can feel the poison entering his body and all he can do is stare into the light right above him, he couldn't scream for help but he can only stare at the light, but the light that was guiding him began to dim. The flight to the other world had just taken off to an unwanted destination. he felt as if he was falling forever and ever but then suddenly a stop. Everything went dark, the walls began to close in, He screamed inside the empty woods of heaven and hell. Everything went dark and every memory was gone, the empty space that needed a beating heart was dead. Everyone seen the dead tin man but the tin man saw darkness but did not reach the other side, he can hear his surroundings. He was inside a box screaming for help but the world was ignoring him because all they are able to see is the tin man making it to hell. “help!” screamed the tin man, he tried to find a way out of the darkness and back to life. “MY SOUL!, MY SOUL!, I NEED TO GET OUTTA MY FLESH!” he yelled. All he can see is blackness. “theres no way out” suddenly said a voice, “what!, who are you?!, where am I?”, the tin man said. “just listen, you want to get out of here right?”, the voice asked. “YES PLEASE!, I WANNA GO!”,
“ Well you can't, no soul leaves without confession”, “what the fuck are you talking about?, I just wanna leave from here!”, “How do you think that family felt when they wanted to leave their nightmare?”, “i've been sorry a thousand times, the clouds of heaven know I am, I just want to go back!, i'm full of pain.... I wanna go!”, the tin man wanted to escape his body and return back to the world but he had to pay the price that everyone would have to experience... Making a choice. The voice guiding the tin man gave him a proposition that would change everything internally.
“you want to come back to the world, you have taken the world from others but as seasons changes so does the leaves of the trees, you're just a leaf. This is just a season that you as a leaf could not survive, but leaves grow again. This is now the season in which you begin to grow again, a rebirth is essential for anyone even the ones on the bottom of the pit. But the leaves turn green because it's their chance to blossom under the sun, this is your chance” The tin man was confused but was ready for anything that came so he can finally experience his rebirth or any transformation that is essential for a tasteful continuation of his existence. “What do I have to do!?”, said the tin man. “You have to make choice, do something that will keep the leaves blossoming on the tree for every season, you have to find a way to keep your leaves strong for any season.”, the voice said with great power and wisdom. “you apologize with regret In your bones but I want to hear what you have been holding in and begging for the world to know” “ I have had sorrow in my heart for many years and I feel like its my time. There was no other way to tell the world how much I wanted to show my sorrow to all of the ones I have hurt, its something I could have never placed in peoples minds, the pain and the confusion I had placed inside me to lead me to perform my mistakes. I had the anger in my eyes that lead people to fear me, I never had anyone to tell how sorry I was. I can never turn back the look that people gave me, the headlines. Something I could never erase, the brick has turned to dust.” “Rejoice, the golden gates have opened and a bridge is visible. Time to cross to the other side”, the voice has vomited the final act. “What's going on?”, Confusion was visible in the tin man's voice.
“It is time for you to choose, the sky will break. Your confessions have filled the air and the earth moves with your strive for forgiveness and to return back to life in a clear state, you have taken the lives of a happy family, children with innocence in their brains, the same brains you ejected from their skulls. In this very moment the outcomes are limited to a deux. You have the chance to make big changes in the earth, this is your time for your leaves to blossom.” The tin man was ready for anything, anything for just peace. “these are your holy options, you are a condemned man who can life once again with a clear soul but keep the ones you have murdered under the ground, or you can bring the lives of the ones you have taken with your soul back to life but you have remain in the other side of life forever. The tin man was not expecting this kind of choice, everything he lived for or wanted to live for all lead up to this moment, he can not turn back or make any wrong decision that he believes would end wrong. It all lead to this moment that would change everything forever until the end of time. He knew in his heart what he felt that was right but he was so afraid and this moment was one of the only times he has felt emotion in a very long time. Thinking of his decision made him feel so alive. Every memory he has stored in his mind returned in a flash, his birth, his first tear and even first murder. He knew what to do and finally the bells began to rang. The anticipation was mounting and finally the flood gates began to close.
IT WAS TIME. The tin Man was ready to speak “i lived a life of regrets and the pursuit of peace, this life I beg to return to is nothing but muddy water. I can return with a clean slate but the memories of all the evil things I have done will still haunt me, life is something I had the chance to experience but never had the chance to live it the correct way. I stipped the fututre of a beautiful family, I took away the most important thing away from them, life. Nothing on earth can be more important then that, I hope there is a way god can forgive me for my mistakes but I hope he will look inside me and see that I am sorry. Thats why my choice is for me to remain here gone forever and for the ones I have taken to heaven to return to life.” “Is this the wish you command to become reality?”, the voice asked. With every bone of his body shaking he finally let his leaves blossom, “Yes”, he said.
Suddenly everything began to shake in his soul, everything turned to a blue then a rush of different colors filled his vision. Everything began to then go dark but then suddenly he opened his eyes and woke up in room white walls, as he got up he began to look around, he walked around and noticed he recognized the different rooms. The panels and the colors seemed very familiar, as he walked to the next room he noticed laughs filled the air, he was on the path to the happiness which finally lead to the living room filled with people, a mother, a father, two little girls, and two little boys, it was the family, they were playing a board game. Laughing so much until they cried, smiling, hugging, living. As he stood standing looking at them he was ignored, no attention was drawn to the man standing at the corner of the living room. He was invisible, he stared at them with tears in his eyes. They were so happy and that made the tin man very happy also, he knew his decision was the right one. His last memories of them were him slaughtering them for a sense a relief, and witnessing happiness not death is everything the Tin man wanted in his final regrets. “you have made a choice that was very beautiful, I wanted to give you a chance to return to earth one final time to see that your choice has left a stamp on the tree that holds your leaves, you have made a change in their lives for sacrificing yours, and that is something so beautiful.”, said the voice as it popped into the tin man's head. “i just hope I can sleep in peace after this, I can finally rest. I can finally find the silence I wanted”, said the tin man as tears roll down his cheeks, fist finally unclenched “and you finally can, you made the choice that can finally set you free” the tin man's soul slowly dissolves away into the particles of the laughs from the happiness that overcame the family's living room, every single mistake was erased as the winds pushed his soul up to heaven, the sounds of time turn to colors that can finally let the leaves shine. Finally the tin man has a heart.
He was a very hungry boy, Julius was his name, a boy with a starving heart. Everyday he would consume more than normal, food was never a privilege, he believed he earns it. Vomit filled the floors when he filled his tank, it was always full. Everyday he was a hungry fool. He lived with his parents that were never home, he was alone in a hungry world. Everday was nothing new, a hungry heart knew everyday what to do, EAT. One beautiful morning when everyone was away at work, he woke up & imagined what food will go down his throat next. He ran down the stairs & spotted the empty kitchen, it was time to create a masterpiece, He took out the pancake mix & the eggs but also the pig strips. He turned on the stove & dropped some butter, the sound of the butter burning above the hot surface sent chills up his spine, his heart skipped a beat as the butter melted into a river. He poured the mix in a bowl & water activated the birth of thick tan mix, the mix sat on the bowl ready to fall on the hot skillet. He didn't think or feel & just poured the mix to finally create a tan soft surface. Every meal he has had before never compared to this wonderful breakfast he was going to partake in this morning. He placed the two pancakes, thick pig strips & the beautiful fried eggs on a majestic pale plate accompanied by beautiful flower detail with a silver fork & beautiful knife. But before his dreams would come true he walked over to the living room & sat on the couch, he looked forward & saw the television, he needed entertainment to enjoy this feast from heaven. He turned on the television & began to watch the news, he wanted to be informed about the world outside the place he considered his castle, once the screen turned into moving images he then began to eat. He suddenly sank his fork into the pancake & then sank his knife cutting the pancake free. He felt as if heaven fell on him, the taste & texture just made him so happy.... minutes after he began to feast he felt different inside, something about this meal made him feel as if this would be one of his last, he began to chew but something about this meal made him feel very different inside, a smile filled the room as he finally felt the golden prize go down his throat, beautiful food. But then minutes after Julius began to chew suddenly the words “Breaking news” flew across the screen. “Breaking news”, the anchorwomen said. “900 are dead after a horrific plane crash occurred just moments ago, we have received calls from eyewitnesses confirming the crash & officials confirming the death toll. We will keep you updated on developments”, the boy with no emotion continued eating, unaware. He ate in a slow pace & in small portions to enjoy every bite, as images of a destroyed plane filled the screen the boy filled his stomach.
but just twenty minutes after, and twenty bites later another surprise filled the screen. “Another breaking news story everyone, we have just been informed that there has been an explosion on an oil rig off the coast of alaska, the death toll has reached the hundreds so far”, the boy began to worry, the stories seemed so horrific and seemed to be happening back to back, he began to think of all the sudden deaths, something wasn't right he thought but something about this meal made his body reject any concern. As the boy with no emotion continued to eat He then received a call from his mother telling him horrible news, she received a phone call from a family member informing her that a relative has died on the plane that crashed an hour ago. But the boy still with no emotion was more focused on the food. The plate was half full and he was not done yet, he ate more but then suddenly things began to get worse. “500 are confirmed dead in a stadium collapse due to an earthquake in scotland”. He ate and ate as more deaths popped up on the screen, one more bite of food & 600 die in a violent storm. Julius was not aware that he has committed murder, in two hours he has killed 2,200 people, to him the cause of all the deaths were “The end of the world”. He fell asleep just to later wake up to eat, but his dreams seemed to paint another picture, but no food filled his brain but the image of a bloody plate, the dream quickly transformed into a nightmare as the disgusting image of a bloody plate remained in his mind stuck like velcro, suddenly a voice filled his soul telling him to reject the consumption of food. The voice told him to reject the temptation because he is the cause of all the deaths. Every bite he takes has now become a photograph of mortality, images of blood & guts, screamed so loud in his brain waking him up with sweat & fear, screams & terror. He thought it was just a bad dream, a little nightmare, But he was not aware of the message that could have saved lives. A dream that would make him choose. But not one little bad dream can change him, he turned on the television & cooked just once more. But this time he noticed something that made his skin very tight. His nightmare was surprisingly coming true slowly but surely His new full plate created another anticipation, the 5 o'clock news came on, they were recapping the day's earlier horrible events when julius took another bite of fresh bread. But suddenly he heard a disaster that was too close to home, an explosion in the distance he heard. A loud BOOM filled his ear & the small town he lived in, He was shaken up & afraid & looked outside the window to see what was going on, he saw fire & death. He looked into the distance & noticed the direction of the fire, it all seemed to familiar, he noticed the area in which the smoke was coming from but needed time to think since he was always home eating he forgot his own surroundings, but as he began to squint his eyes to confirm his view he received a regretful call, it was his father.
“JULIUS!”, A scream. “Dad, you okay??”, asked Julius. His father was trapped on the last floor of the city's bread factory, the machines in the building exploded unexpectedly “DAD ARE YOU GONNA GET OUT?”, asked julius. “I'M NOT SURE, I'M CALLING TO JUST SAY IF I DO NOT MAKE IT OUT I LOVE YOU SO MUCH, I HAVEN'T CALLED YOUR MOTHER YET BECAUSE I DON’T WANT HER TO PANIC, SHE’S PROBABLY ON HER WAY HOME FROM WORK, JUST LOVE HER & TELL HER EVERYTHING'S GONNA BE OKAY. Said the father His father got off the phone right away to find a way out & the boy was afraid, he cried but looked over at the table & saw some bread, He began to eat again. Minutes after he chewed & chewed a rumble was born, he ran to the window & his view was more & more fire, another major explosion, this one bigger than the first & this one seemed to have ended all signs of life inside the building, the boy called his father hundreds of times but no response, julius kept trying thinking that in between the rings for help his father will tell him he's okay, he wanted his father to just tell him that everything is going to be okay, every time he imaged his father walking through the front door of the house safe from the disaster the sounds of fire overflowed any imagination he had swimming in his brain, but suddenly & finally something in his heart knew that would never come true, a father & sons bond created a connection so strong julius knew he was gone, julius now was a bastard All the madness was occurring in one second but then julius then remembered the dream, he rejected the theory and began to eat to cure his sadness and fear, he cried and cried but felt alone because his mother was still not home and yet he felt empty knowing his father was just gone, then suddenly more deaths flashed on the screen, another state. The boys eyes grew wide and every strand of hair stood stiff like swords. A voice filled his mind that can not exit until he listened. “Vomit the deaths, find a way to end it all, the next victim is on a bridge, one more bite and everything will begin to fall” He was confused and called his mother to find out where she was with gallon of fear in his heart “Mom where are you?!”, julius did not know what else to do “I'm stuck on the bridge, theres traffic everywhere, some explosion happened I heard on the radio”, she was unaware the fire took her husband
Julius eyes opened with his discovery. His mind was a blur, not knowing whether to let his mother know his father was in the explosion, or worse, telling her he was the one who killed him. He finally listened to the voice and noticed the sin he has created, logic was erased, he lived by it but this moment was so real that it was unreal, he knew the voice in his mind served a higher purpose. His stomach was a loud lion as he began to swim in his regrets but he fought his temptation, he was so hungry but knew one more bite will have his mother and everyone on the bridge falling to their deaths, he had to make a choice, something that will stop it all, but no idea filled his brain except vomiting. He ran to the bathroom and opened the toilet seat to create a river of breakfast, lunch & dinner. He believed that was going to cure everything but only made him more hungry, he wiped off the extra vomit on his dry lips and stared at the phone, something about the phone made him feel free, he knew what he had to do to save his mother, the phone seemed so beautiful, knowing the phone would sorta solve things. He slowly walked to it and called his mother to say a final goodbye, he knew she was not coming to his rescue because she was stuck, she was going to be alone in the future without a husband or son but julius knew he had to end it all to save the lives he will take away if he were to swallow more happiness, he knew he was going to continue eating and most likely killing everyone, he went to the kitchen and looked under the sink to look for something to eat or drink that will finally end it all, he turned his head slightly to the right and saw the answer, rat poison, he extended his arms to grab it, he pulled out a yellow box and looked inside to pull out two green blocks, blocks of heaven that will collapse the sensation for anticipation. He grabbed a knife and cut them into small little parts to ingest. He cut both blocks into little pieces of ten, slowly every single piece of heaven began to slide down his throat then finally began to swim in his stomach, crying he walked to the corner of the room, his heart racing like a race car, he was so afraid and knew things will begin to go dim slowly, something about a slow death always scared julius, everything shutting down slowly, a flame in a candle that was not taken out by water but slowly dimming because of the lack of wax. As he sat in the corner with his head down, tears began freefalling. This was his final meal
Her life was coming to a finish, memories were her company for which the loves of her life were gone with the wind. The moon becomes pregnant as she sits in the corner of her room looking at all the images that keep her alive, the images that keeps her sane. She looks at the pictures & touches the clothing that keeps the bridge from heaven to hell intact. This lonely soul cries out for help every dawn of day in the middle of the red sea of hopes & dreams. She dreams of the ones she has lost but her dreams become damaged paintings because reality slaps her in the face, she throws herself on the floor to lay there & stare at the objects that has kept her alive for years, she wonders what would she do if she were ever to lose the pictures of them & the dead flowers he gave her. You can say she lost it all but these objects open her airways. She's never washed the clothes she wore when she hugged them, some nights she can hear the fire that took them away from her. Some nights she wants to end it all just to see them one more time but she knew she would not make it to heaven if she did. Her young grey hairs fall like a leaf from a tree in the beginning of fall. Her tears fall like fresh rain from puffy clouds, she fills the tub with cold water and everyday she sinks her helpless body and lays under the water until she begs for air, this routine is a way for her to wash away her sadness, but Today she didn't come up, she didn't beg for air. She drowned with ice water in her lungs. She felt as is she were alive but she was dead, she couldn't feel her body and she was very afraid, all she can see is darkness but then suddenly she can see a bright white light and a silhouette of an angel with beautiful wings, the angel walks over to here, she looks at the mother as she stood there afraid unaware of what was going on, unaware if she fell asleep in the tub and is now dreaming or if she is really dead, she believed in angels but could never imagine the feeling she would receive when she met one, but then suddenly the angel gives her a quest. “ your life was milk & honey before the darkness came, now I have an umbrella to block you from the rain, I can hear you cry from inside your soul. Your emotions and feelings as hard as coal. Now you have something that will keep your memories alive but I have something that will make you cry, If you burn all of your memories I can return one of your loved ones for just an hour, but if you do not follow the request and you do not wish to burn the tangible memories away then the tangible memories will forever keep you alive”. Her soul shut down as she did not believe what she was seeing or hearing, she tried to find ways to wake herself up from this horrible nightmare but the more she tried, the more this became reality. She wanted someone she loved to return but she would have to abolish everything that keeps all of their memories alive. She can only see one loved one for 60 minutes, every second will count. She wondered if it would be worth it, burning the teddy bears and the clothes and the dead flowers for just one family member to return. She kept thinking and thinking but didn't know what to do but the angel gave her an option, “You have until midnight, if you burn all of the memories away the loved one you would like to return to you would appear in the ashes of the memories, if you do not destroy the memories by midnight you would never have a chance to bring back a loved one ever again.”, the angel then began to flap her wings, She had no chance to speak, everything went black then her vision became water again, she quickly went up to the surface for the gift of air. She cried tears of sorrow but also happiness because she remembered what the angel said to her, she had to make a choice but the clock was ticking. She ran to her room naked with water dripping down her body, she looked at the clock and it read 11:50, the memories meant the world to her because it held her together for so many years after she lost her family to the flames, it kept the portal to the other side alive. But bringing back at least someone that she once loved forever will make her dreams come true, but it was not fair that it was only one soul that she can bring back to the world. She can only spend an hour with that one soul and then that lonely soul would be gone with the wind back up to heaven.The silent room filled with different voices, the voices of demons and angels and glitter ghost telling her what was best for her, but only she knew what had to be done, it was 11:58. the final two minutes became the final two minutes of the biggest decision of her entire life. It was a cluster of sadness but also of happiness a hint of regret but a pinch of peace. She stood in the cornor of the wet floors from her empty naked body, she felt the world crashing down on her but visions of roses filled her eyeballs. She got up.
She stared at the memories that were all together on the floor of her cold room. Her nipples began to harden as a cold rush crashed with her wet body. She began to walk to the pile of memories, pictures, stuffed animals, drawings, fashion, everything that will keep a soul alive in one pile, she stared at them knowing that her life has been devoted to these objects, she believed so deeply her death will come soon if she were ever detached from them. she stood over the pile then looked over to her empty bed, a lighter laid ontop of her sheets. The same lighter that lit her cigarette to keep her calm when she cried for them, She extended her arm to grab it. Once she felt the texture of the lighter her heart began to race. Lucky her broken soul created ropes to keep her heart in place from exiting her chest, she closed her eyes for just a second to just open them to a lighter with flames bursting out of it. No regrets. She brought the lighter closer to a piece of fashion then finally the flames grew, she backed up just a few inches and created a trail of tear drops as she watched all of the memories slip away. The flames grew in a matter of seconds with no help from fluids, It was like it was meant to happen. The clock struck 12. a spectrum was born, everything began to shake and the flames turned to a rainbow then turned the dust formed a tornado that sent her heart freefalling, the dust kept spinning and spinning until finally a glowing light shined from inside the tornado,all the noise finally stopped, the tornado finally stopped but the light was still glowing brighter and brighter, a silhouette grew from inside the light. The silhouette took form of a little girl, she was small, the light was finally defused and the girl stood standing in the shape of life, still glowing. she stood standing looking at her mother. Her name is judy “Mommy!”, yelled judy with a innocent smile on her face The mother stood in disbelief, she couldn't believe this moment was happening. She quickly got a beautiful night gown to cover her nude body. She was so overwhelmed, her body shaking and tears releasing so much she choked. but she only had 56 minutes left to relive memories and create memories. She picked her youngest daughter to return because her little girl was still very young when her spirit left her body, she was only 12 when the flames of that horrible night took her away. she was her baby. “Baby!, come here!”, she held out her hands to welcome her baby girl. They hugged each other and she cried because she felt her daughter's heartbeat. She stroked her hair then held her hand. “I missed you”, said judy as she looked into her mothers eyes The mother let no minute nor second go by without giving so much love and appreciation to her deceased daughter. They played every childhood game they can remember playing before judy went to heaven. They laughed and in every second judy felt so alive. They played hide and go seek but had to cut the game short because judy will cry for her mother every time because judy would miss her when she would go seek for her. The mother enjoyed every single time judy would laugh and expose her little teeth. They were having so much fun and enjoying every moment that they lost track of time, it was 12:40, the realization that the mother only had twenty minutes left with her daughter killed her inside.
It was now time to build the bridge. The mother sat judy down on a wooden rocking chair, she sat looking at her ready to make her peace with her daughter before judy would reenter heaven. The mother wanted a memory that she would never ever forget until the day she dies. “How is it up there?”, said the mother. “Where mommy?”, Judy asked “Up in the clouds with daddy and your brother and sisters”, said the mother with tears ready to freefall “Its so beautiful!, there are so many beautiful angels mommy, and puffy clouds like the ones I use to draw for you. Everything is just so perfect, daddy will walk me to the enchanted park with brian, elizabeth & star. We play and laugh! We miss you there but daddy sits me down and tells me I will see you again one day and he was right!” “Do you remember anything before you made it up to the clouds baby?”, Asked the mother “I remember it was very hot & daddy kept telling me everything was going to be okay, i don’t remember you there mommy, where were you?” said judy “I was out buying you your birthday cake, when i came back the house was gone under the smoke, Judy i wish i could have been there with you guys, this life is nothing without you all, i wish i never stepped out”, the mother tried to hard to stay strong “But Mommy it’s not your fault”, judy smiled This would be the last time the mother would hear about the fire. The mothers heart began to hurt as the thought of saying goodbye to her beautiful daughter made her bones shake. It was 12:50
“Well you're gonna have to leave soon back to the sky okay, I know you don't want that but it's only goodbye for a little while, okay baby?”, the mother had a mask on of strength. “mommy I know”, judy said “Wait, what do you mean sweetie?”, asked the mother The mother was confused, unaware that judy knew everything “We see you when you pray to see us In your dreams, we know how much you miss us. The voice that gave you a chance to see me again was our angel, we knew she was gonna take one of us to you so one of us can tell you how much we love you” “So you knew some voice was going to visit me?”, asked the mother “Yes, the angel read your heart, she knew you missed us so much. We knew about all the things you kept to keep our lives in your memory. This night will never end.” the mother was confused, unaware of what judy meant. “Mommy we never left, we have always been in your heart since the fire took us away. You do not need anything to keep our memories alive because you can just close your eyes and we will be right there with you.” As the mother continued to hear her daughter speak she knew she would miss her & her entire family even more “BUT I CAN'T!, NO!, YOU CAN'T LEAVE, PLEASE DON'T LEAVE ME”, the mother screamed with oceans in her eyes “Open your heart and see that we will never leave you” everything began to shake lights began to fill the room, the mother began to scream as she seen her daughter begin to dissolve, a bright light grew from judys stomach then the large light took over her body, and then suddenly she was gone. The mother cried, her tears fell to the floor. She thought everything was lost, she thought she was able to say goodbye to the memories but she knew deep inside her heart she was not able to control the way she felt. But something unexpected was born, a bright light was reborn In the middle of the room, so bright she had to look away but then she noticed silhouettes were visible. She tried to look and noticed who they were. unaware of the surprise, It was her family. Her husband and all her beautiful children, Her husband walked to her, glowing in the dark. He looked at her with a smile of heaven.
“ I missed you sweetheart”, said her husband with his hand on her face staring right into her soul “ I missed you more apollo”, she was shaking and crying She hugged her children, and gave them a hundred kisses. She cried with them, this moment she would keep forever. The angel gave her a chance to see them all one last time, the angel read her heart and knew she deserved this moment more then anything. They would have to go back to heaven but this moment of happiness was everything that the mother wanted, she will miss them but her family made her realize that memories are forever. She can always visit them in her thoughts and memories in the brain. The angel gave the mother an extra 10 minutes with her family, once the angel knew the mother was at peace, knowing the mother was so eager to say goodbye, the angel knew it was time. “We have to go now” ,said the father. And with no tears but just a smile the mother responded with a simple “Ok”. They all went into the light up to heaven and the mother laid on her bed. They were gone. But the mother closed her eyes and she can see and hear the laughs and smiles of her beautiful family. She can see them & something feel them, knowing when it was her time she can finally be with them into eternity. A golden tear came falling down her cheek. She was at peace.
