I stared at the window. The stars were shining bright. The snow looked like crystals. I felt trapped by the wires around me. Suddenly I wanted to go outside. I wanted to break away from the wires. I wanted to forget about dying.
“Dying’s hard work.” I said to Phineas
“And you’re too young to die.” he said
“A lot of things I’ll never do such as graduation, college, or getting married or have sex.”
“Is’nt that what everyone wants.”
I started to feel tired but I wanted to stay awake.
“Are you hurting much?” Phineas asked
“Not really.” I said
“I’ll let you rest.”
“Fine.” I was starting to get tired
He adjusted some of the wires and I fell asleep.
