A very, and I mean very small short story, about 1-2 paragraphs. Beginning-they say that the moment before you die, you see your life pass before your eyes.

 

They say that moments before you die, your life passes through your eyes. I wonder what mine would look like?I have an idea (doesn't everyone?) but it's nothing more than that, an idea. Do I accomplish anything? Did I progress? Did my life get better or worse? I guess I have quesstions too. I have lived a good life I suppose, better than some, worse than others. I had a roof over my head, clothing, food, education, a loving family , yes for the most part my life was good. I guess some will call my death tragic, while others will pass it off as something that happens everyday. I wonder what my friends will say...if they say anything at all that is. And my mom, my birthday would have been tomorrow. She was so excited. She loved me, I can hear her calling, she sounds so sad, so...far. I can't blame her, I'm sad too, I've been cheated out of life. Out of so much.
"Anne!"
She's still calling. I can still see the stars above me. I've never noticed how bright they were. I just wanted to swing, to feel like I was soaring, like when I used to do when I was younger.
"Anne!"
She's closer now, but I'm leaving. I can still feel my blood leaving my numb body and flowing onto the wild flowers underneath me. BANG! I can still here it, my ears still ring, the bullet, that one stray bullet.
"Anne! Oh dear lord my baby!"
She found me, but I have to go now, I can't see the stars anymore. Tomorrow would have my 13th birthday.
"Please don't go."
I guess life doesn't always pass before your eyes.
"Don't go!"
Good bye.
