Day 206 – Fate – Where It Ends

“You think it’s true?”

“What part?”

“All of it?”

He shrugs his shoulders and smiles, “I believe what I can see, I believe what I can feel, so, yeah, I think it’s all true, even the bullshit parts.”

“Bullshit parts? It’s all bullshit parts, but that doesn’t stop what we’re seeing  does it?”

“I know, that’s why I said it’s all true, even the bullshit parts, I was making a point that there are bullshit parts, I mean, have you fucking read it?”

“Who hasn’t? It was part of growing up, everyone read it at least once, or, at least, was told the story, but, up until now, that’s all it was, a fucking story, one of the biggest fiction books of all time, totally unbelievable, yet, here we are, watching this shit happen, right in front of us.”

“I know, so, what do we do?”

“We’ll we start fucking changing our ways, become better people.”

“Why? A what do you mean, better people? I didn’t think we were bad.”

“That’s the thing, our standards are nothing now, everything we have to compare our lives to is that fucking book, because, it’s all real, and honestly, if part of it is real, then, well, maybe it’s all real.”

“Yeah, well, that’s a given, I already said it was.”

“Yeah but who are you? You’re no golden scribe, no saint, you’re just like me, a nobody, wanna be, who has done nothing for anyone else except themselves their whole life, you know, what if that’s not good enough.”

“Shit man, your reading way too much into this.”

“Am I? Really?”

“Yeah, you are. So, why don’t you just take a step back, then, take a deep breath, and chill the fuck out. Whatever happens from here on in, we do the right thing, we say please, and thank you, we don’t ignore others who need help and above all, we be kind to others.”

“Okay, but, don’t you think it’s too late, don’t you think we’ve already been judged?”

“Nah man, he starts his list each year, we still got heaps of time to recover and get off the naughty list.”

    1. Thanks so much, this one seemed to go on forever, so I cut half the conversation out before I posted it, and, I think the flow progressed quickly, like it need to.

    1. Thanks so much, I really wanted you to think you knew what they were talking about, and then sideswipe you right at the end.
