Our narrator is an emotionally wrecked, and a constant scenario writer of situations, and a bit of a philosopher. She meets an old man at Chicago Union Station, who makes her take a good look at humanity and think about mortality and immortality.
There isn't a great plot, and an amazing climax with the right kind of resolution. However it is a heartfelt piece with a good look in old age and youth.
I know I have some errors in this story. When I reread the story it was clear as day. So, if you see any errors please let me know.
Hope you enjoy this one.
Thanks for reading in advance.
