100 Word Story – Chest Pains (Finale)

There are things in life that are just destined or determined to be out of our control. Evolution is always going to happen, whether or not humans or animals had any major influence in the course of something changing over time. Human genetics and DNA are predetermined, from what our physical appearance will be at birth, all the way to whether we get cancer or not.

There are just some things that are meant to be out of our control, whether we like it or not.

And sometimes, personal suffering and the suffering of others will be determined for us as well. The best we can do is hope for the best and believe that we’ll live against all odds. If we live, then it was already in the cards. If we die and parish…

It was expected.

The cold metal of the operation table sent chills throughout my body, but I tried my best not to shiver. Blinding lights hung above, and the strange smell of medical equipment surrounded me.

“Take deep breaths, Quinton,” Doctor Lopez said as she stood over me, putting a breathing device over my face.

I followed her instructions and took deep breaths of the cold air coming from the device. I knew the air would quickly put me to sleep, so I managed to say one last thing before I fell asleep.

“I’ll see you in a little bit, Doc. Thank you.”
