“You have six months left.”
That was the time I had left to live.
I panicked and asked the doctor.
“It’s a joke… right?”
What came first, was denial. So I did the only thing I could’ve done in that situation— I called the doctor a quack and visited every other hospital across the country.
“Not possible in our hospital…”
“It’s too late…”
“All of you are quacks! What did you study for all your life? You can’t even fix this one disease.” As I was wandering around like that, one day I met a person who claimed that he could cure my illness.
Of course, it was a scam.
I had already squandered half of the money I had saved in my life, then locked myself in my room with a gloomy heart and slept all week long.
After starving myself for a whole week, I got back some will to live. After all, after six months, I would be gone anyways, so I ordered some pig’s feet and began to eat it as I shed tears of sorrow.
“Why do you have to do this to me? Why?”
I even prayed to god.
“There were a lot of other guys, so why me? Growing up without parents, I worked hard all my life, and I wanted to be a little happier now, so why? Why!”
I downed the whole bottle of alcohol. Perhaps all of my nerves had already died, I didn’t feel intoxicated even when I finished a whole bottle.
“Yeah, let’s get myself together.”
On the 100th day after I was given the deadline, I was finally able to accept everything. But accepting death didn’t change anything dramatically. Some say that one should write things like bucket lists at times like this, but I didn’t have any hobbies like everyone else had. The only thing I did do was play mobile games on my spare time at work.
A game suddenly came to mind, and I picked up my smartphone and connected to the game.
This game had been ongoing for a long time, and it was still holding a pickup event for new characters to suck money from the users.
I poured most of the money I had left in the game thinking it would be my last one.
I spent everything I had in the next three months, leaving money only for food.
By pouring so much time and money into the game, I collected all of the 5-star and 4-star characters I couldn’t normally dream of. But, that wasn’t enough, so I succeeded in raising all of them to the highest level.
It was a waste of time to work and make a living, so I didn’t even try to do anything else. But when I reached the top, I immediately felt that I had wasted my resources.
“I want to live.”
In the end, I lay on the bed and stared blankly at the ceiling, and I fell asleep without realizing it.
And then… I woke up!
There was a loud beeping sound in my head. Hearing that sound made me feel like my head would explode, and I slowly opened my eyes.
When I opened my eyes, I found something bizarre floating in the air in front of me.
It was a square window that I had often seen on my phone screen.
