A Boy With a Future

by OzKat | Score: 2650

Crap shit fuck my life why did I lose such a simple game? How could I lose such a simple game? It isn't that hard to run away from a few ghosts and find some power ups! I'm so fucking stupid.

I look at my wristwatch to check the time. It's 1am. Have I really been playing for that long? I sneak down to the kitchen, my dad's, he's a joyous shoemaker,  light is turned off. I grab a drink of water and head back upstairs. Walking into my room, I kick aside the pasta strainer I use as a space helmet, hopped over my Lego house, and dodged my desk chair, making it to my bed.

I glance over the family photo posted on my bedside table. I, my dad, and my mom who was a maternal inventor were present in the photo. Sadly, however, my mother is dead. Since her inventions helped women bringing children into the world, causing hormonal mood swings to go away, world piece has been achieved. Now I anxiously await my future. How will I help it?
