    Summary

    She was stubborn as well as kind, and loved him beyond reason.

    Summary

    When he chose to throw himself into the path of a speeding train, he expected the world to cease to exist. Maneck was not a religious man, unable in his jaded of hearts to believe in some higher nirvana. Choosing death was choosing the nothingness, the sweet release from life and thoughts that made his head foggy. So it was a great surprise to him when he found himself not drifting senseless in a void, but rather standing in a more than familiar hostel room. Not just any room, either, and the familiarity made his skin crawl.

    Maneck reunites with an old friend and the two debate. Written for an English project.
