 I was chosen. Chosen by someone or something I don’t understand. Chosen to do one thing, save the boy.

  "Daniel, DANIEL! I don't have much time, so I'll tell you this right now on August 20th you will have to save a nine-year-old boy, and you will get hurt doing this. However, I trust that you can do this. If you don’t, the boy will die. Just keep living normally, and you will know what to do. Farewell, I hope you can do this, everything lies on yo-". "AGHHHHHH" I woke up with the worst headache in my life. I didn't go to the school that day, I locked myself in my room and prayed it was fake.

‘Keep living NORMALLY? HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE, THE LIFE OF A NINE-YEAR-OLD IS IN MY HANDS’. So I cried, cried myself to sleep, woke up the next day and went to school. The school was normal, too normal to be exact. Of course, I didn't tell anyone about my dream because they'd think that I've gone insane. It's still July 25th I even got  26 days left. So I have nearly a month left to save the boy. The worst part is that I don't have a plan. I don't know what will happen or how the boy is going to die, so I can't be sure if I can save hi- "Hello Daniel." "Wha- What is going on? Who are you?"  "I am here to help you protect the boy." "You sound different from before who are you?" "Who I am doesn't matter, what you should be worried about is how you're going to  be fast enough to protect the boy." " What do you mean fast enough? Moreover, am I not fast enough?" " You can run 50 meters in 8.12 seconds, to do your task you need to be at least 7.75 or below. Also, you need to lose 7kg to at least get to 7.9 seconds from there you need to exercise." "How the hell am I going to lose 7kg in 19 days?" "You have to figure that out, and also I am going to be in your mind until you achieve your task."

So I exercised 24/7 I jogged, lifted and just about everything else. In two weeks time, I lost 8.6kg and my time became 7.62. "Looks like your ready" "Yeah, I am!" 





Chapter 2


At dinner, my mom said, " Hey you look like you lost weight." "Yeah 8.6kg to be exact. Hey, What day is it today?"  "Uh let's see, it's... August 16th." It can't be, I only got four days left? So before August 20th, I exercised even more and then on the 19th I rested slept for the entire day, and when I woke up, it was the 20th day I put my clothes on and went to school. However, something was odd; everyone was looking at me weird. At school, no one would talk to me, and when school ended, everyone was staying away from me. 'What's going on?' I thought to my self "Their not looking at you; they can see me" 'What but how? Can they hear you too?' "No, they cannot hear me, but they can see me because today your going to save the boy."

I was walking down the street waiting for the moment, and that's when I saw him. I knew it was him because he was radiating, glowing like the sun.

I ran, ran as fast as I could and I caught up to him, but the light on the other side of the crosswalk turned green. I became terrified I was scared of the fact that I would fail, but I kept running and pushed him. However, it wasn't enough.




Chapter 3


 Blood... blood was everywhere... there was blood on my face... blood on the tires... hi... his... his... arm... it was... it was... torn... torn off... and that's when it happened, there was a killing pain in my legs... I looked back, so much blood...  my left leg it wasn't there... "Please... give me another chance... I will save him this tim-." "Uh let's see, it's... August 16th." "Wait what?" "I said its Augus- oh my god are you crying? What’s wrong?” “Uh no, it’s nothing I’m full I’ll go to my room.” “OK, but if something’s wrong you can tell me.” “Ok mom good night”

I couldn't believe it; I traveled back in time. I got a second chance!
