No one knows where you will be after this life.

The White Room

Knife on my right hand.

Knife on my right hand. Veins in my left hand.

Knife on my right hand. Veins in my left hand. Cut.

Knife on my right hand. Veins in my left hand. Cut. Hurts.

I lied back on my bed.

I lied back on my bed. Not looking again at my bloody wet hands.

My eyes were closing.

My eyes were closing. Dark.

My eyes were closing. Dark. Darkness is all I can see.

My eyes were closing. Dark. Darkness is all I can see. All black.

Then, light.

Then, light. Sudden burst of light.

Then, light. Sudden burst of light. Closer, closer, and closer.

Then, light. Sudden burst of light. Closer, closer, and closer. Until, all white.

I looked down, my feet.

Feeling all my body.

My hands, clean, no more blood on it.

There, I am standing, in the white room, or maybe not a room, because I can't see any wall there.

I ran, searching for something, searching for the boundaries for this place, until I realized, it was endless.

Footsteps, I heard it, behind me, approaching me, louder, and louder.

Louder, I can feel his presence behind me, who?

Louder, I can feel his presence behind me, who? I looked back.

No one.

"I'm here, Steve."

I saw him in front of me.

I saw him in front of me. The man,

I saw him in front of me. The man, with the white beard, and his white suit.

"Who are you?"

"Who are you?" "Me? Hmm? I was told to be here to give you something."

"Umm, and what is that thing?"

"Umm, and what is that thing?" "A message."

"A message? What message? And where am I actually?"

"A message? What message? And where am I actually?" "Yeah, I want to ask you that too, Steve."

"Huh?"

"Huh?" "So, Steve, what do you know about afterlife?"

"Wait, what do you mean?"

"Wait, what do you mean?" "You know, the life after death, what do you know about that?"

"Umm, I don't know, maybe, heaven and hell?"

"Okay, yeah, that maybe right."

"So, what is this place? Hell or heaven?"

"So, what is this place? Hell or heaven?" "Yeah, but this place is neither heaven nor hell, Steve."

"Wait, I thought I will go straight to hell because of the suicide."

"Wait, I thought I will go straight to hell because of the suicide." "Nahh, hell's probably too luxurious for you, man."

"What? So what should I do here?"

"What? So what should I do here?" "Well, not much, but you know, we can watch TV, look at this screen."

A big screen popped up on my left side.

And then I saw her.

"Of course, you remember her, Steve?"

"Margaret."

My high school crush.

My high school crush. I remembered her.

The flowers that I brought for her.

The flowers that I brought for her. While waiting for her outside the cafe.

The flowers that I brought for her. While waiting for her outside the cafe. But she never came

And the day after that, she never talked to me again.

And the day after that, she never talked to me again. Never.

"Really, never ever?"

I was shocked.

I was shocked. Knowing that The Man in White can read my minds.

"Take a look, Steve"

Margaret, sitting on a white sheet.

Margaret, sitting on a white sheet. On the park, taking a picnic.

Margaret, sitting on a white sheet. On the park, taking a picnic. A girl, on her lap.

Margaret, sitting on a white sheet. On the park, taking a picnic. A girl, on her lap. A man, kissed the girl's forehead.

Margaret, sitting on a white sheet. On the park, taking a picnic. A girl, on her lap. A man, kissed the girl's forehead. Her father.

Margaret, sitting on a white sheet. On the park, taking a picnic. A girl, on her lap. A man, kissed the girl's forehead. Her father. Me.

"But, how?"

"But, how?" "Yeah, so, actually, later, there will be a high school reunion, after you graduate from college.

Funny thing though, it turns out that Margaret was too shy for the first date, and she walked away once she saw you with that big bouquet of flowers,

because she didn't want to attract any attention"

I was thinking back about that day.

"But still, she never forget the day, the day when there was a man who tried so hard to be romantic. That is actually the topic when you meet her in the reunion.

You know, talking about how childish can love be during the high school years."

"But..."

"Too bad though, she will never meet you, because you have ended your story too early, so this chapter won't happen."

And then the screen goes blank.

"Wait."

"Wait." "Nope, now see to your right Steve."

Another screen.

"Dennis."

"Dennis." I muttered.

"Dennis." I muttered. My nemesis.

"Dennis." I muttered. My nemesis. He was one of the smart guys in class.

"Dennis." I muttered. My nemesis. He was one of the smart guys in class. My rival.

"Dennis." I muttered. My nemesis. He was one of the smart guys in class. My rival. I'm not on top anymore.

"Dennis." I muttered. My nemesis. He was one of the smart guys in class. My rival. I'm not on top anymore. Because of him.

"Dennis." I muttered. My nemesis. He was one of the smart guys in class. My rival. I'm not on top anymore. Because of him. And now, he will always be the best.

"Dennis." I muttered. My nemesis. He was one of the smart guys in class. My rival. I'm not on top anymore. Because of him. And now, he will always be the best. There's no one that can compete against him, beside me.

"You're absolutely right, Steve."

Yeah, I am.

On the screen, Dennis on the stage.

"No, I will not work with him."

"No, I will not work with him." "Why, Steve?"

"He's one of the most arrogant person that I've met."

"He's one of the most arrogant person that I've met." "So do you, you're as arrogant as him."

That sentence surprised me, and making me look back to myself.

"Dennis realized it faster than you, one day, he knew that he can turn this rivalry to a better thing, your days of competing have already ended, Steve, now if you guys working together,

who can defeat you guys? Have you thought about that?"

Looking at the screen, me, and Dennis, doing business together, having a meeting together, having a drink in the bar after work together.

"You should have been more patient, Steve, all of these people in this world, they can change over time, including you. Even though you should have realized this sooner."

Not long after that, a bigger screen pops up.

Not long after that, a bigger screen pops up. Then I looked again.

Not long after that, a bigger screen pops up. Then I looked again. At myself.

This screen is not a video, only a picture. Me, and my wife Margaret. Along with my children. And my grandchildren. And probably my great-great grandchildren. Finally, I knew that I won't be alone in the future.

"Nope, you are still alone, Steve!"

I'm looking for The Man in White, but he's not there anymore.

I'm looking for The Man in White, but he's not there anymore. His sound is louder and louder.

"You are still alone because of your decision!"

I heard a cracking glass.

I heard a cracking glass. The screen, the crack is bigger and wider,

I heard a cracking glass. The screen, the crack is bigger and wider, and finally shattered my whole family picture.

Suddenly all white again.

Suddenly all white again. Except.

Suddenly all white again. Except. Small screens.

I can see them, but they're broken.

I can see them, but they're broken. That time, when you're TV is like being swarmed by ants.

I can see them, but they're broken. That time, when you're TV is like being swarmed by ants. Until.

All of them were showing every different scenes of my life.

All of them were showing every different scenes of my life. Which I can only get.

All of them were showing every different scenes of my life. Which I can only get. If I didn't end this.

All of them were showing every different scenes of my life. Which I can only get. If I didn't end this. Earlier.

Tears.

Tears. On my cheek.

Tears. On my cheek. I covered my face.

Tears. On my cheek. I covered my face. Realizing how ungrateful I am.

Now all I can see is dark, and what I can hear is only silence.

Now all I can see is dark, and what I can hear is only silence. Then,

Now all I can see is dark, and what I can hear is only silence. Then, A sound.

I uncovered my face.

I uncovered my face. In front of me, my broken TV in my room.

On my bed, with

On my bed, with Knife on my right hand.

And I whispered to myself,

And I whispered to myself, "No."
