The world will eventually have to end. Our planet may be already crumbling to pieces as we ignore everything else that doesn't really matter to us. Maybe we should spend a little more time to enjoy
the world we live in.


There I am, at the table with my family. We all look so happy, I'm smiling like the idiot that I am. I turn to the television that is a few feet away from the table. I don't remember it being so close. The woman on the screen is speaking a little frantic, but I can make out a few sentences. "The oxygen in our planet is slowly deteriorating. People are running home to their friends and families." My smile fades like fog on a window, slowly. My face soon turns to one of terror. I look back to my family at the table, they aren't there anymore. It's just my mother, two older sisters, my dogs, and me. I'm terrified. My mother quickly rushes all of us to my sister's room. We sit down on the spacious bed. I'm clutching my dog in my arms. The room is spinning as I peek out the window. I can see stars, everything is dark. I feel like I can't breathe and I let go of my dog. He runs out of the room as I start sobbing. My small dog comes back a few moments later, of course to me, it felt like a lifetime. He jumps into my lap as I look at how frail he's gotten. He looks like someone put a blanket of fur and skin onto a model skeleton. I try not to hug him too tightly as my tears fall on him. I feel a pair of arms wrap around me. I look up, my mom is hugging me. We all look so out of breath. "Good night. I say to my family as I place a small kiss on my dog's head. I slowly close my eyes as I can feel my lungs become deprived of oxygen. Good night.
