I'm dead. Really dead. Not in the "there'll be a twist at the end and I'll be saved" kind of way. Just dead. And it's absolutely nothing like I expected.

In all of the near-death experience stories I was told they talked about the light. So much so that I thought that I should walk into it, if only to see what was on the other side. Only there was nothing there, not as far as I've seen anyway. There's just the light.

I keep thinking that if I keep walking, maybe something will appear. But I've been walking and walking for days now (or so I assume because it's not like I've got any means of telling the time) and I've seen nothing. Just the light.

I've not seen any other people either, which is strange because there must be millions of dead people. Are they all wandering around in the light too, looking for something more? Or have they found the something I've been looking for?

Maybe if I keep looking I'll find it too.

Maybe...

Maybe..

Maybe.

A great twist on walk towards the light. Have they already entered and is this all there is or has something gone wrong and they are somehow stuck, perhaps forever.
