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.

Super Annoying Supervisor

I swear to God, if you don’t get the fuck away from me, I’m going to do something you’re gonna regret.

The man laughed with pride, flexing his thigh, “Two-hour bike rides every day for the last seven years. My legs are more ripped than a body builder’s arm.”

It looks like it’s filled with more steroids, too, I thought.
