The crying child
The distant sound of a child crying awakes me from my slumber. When I open my eyes, I find myself in an unfamiliar white room. I stand up and walk towards the door in front of me. My head is dizzy and my body feels weak. What the hell is going on? The more I keep on walking, the further the door becomes. I try running, but that doesn't change anything. I'm still stuck in the same place. "Hello? Is there anybody out there?" I try to scream but all I hear is the sound of my own voice echoing in the distance. "Welcome Mkhitha, congratulations on making it to year 2333." I turn around and see a tall blonde man dressed in a black suit. "Where the hell am I? Am I dead?" He chuckles at my question. "Oh no, you're far from dead sir. As a matter of fact, you're the only one in this room who's alive."
