Last Breath

She left him; she tore his heart right out of his chest. “I just want it over,” he thinks to himself. He wants her back, but he knows that will never happen. He cheated on her, but, sadly, he thought that he could hide it from her; however, she found out about the affair. When she confronted him about it, he lied; she got pissed and dumped him. Now, he regrets ever cheating. He looks around his 7th story apartment; he notices many choices for an egress. He picks the balcony; he jumps. During the fall, he is relieved; he’s full of joy. Then, it hits him. He fell on a car’s hood; he recognizes the color and driver. She came to see him. Her face is full of fear. She came to tell him that she loves him; with his last breath, he tells her, “I love you.”

“Bobby, you’ve been working on that thing for the past nineteen and a half years; when are you going to just give up?”

“You don’t understand it, do you?”

“Understand what?! Why you’ve spent so much time on this THING? I have no clue.”

“You know that’s not what I meant. My point is this; if I can get this time machine working, then it will be an enormous scientific break-through and we will be able to travel back in time and correct all wrong things. This is the next BIG thing.”
