Hi there, friends and followers. If it’s early Sunday morning, then it must be time for Weekend Writing Warriors! This time, we’ve left Jack in hot water and gone into a flashback of a conversation with his son Andrew…
“I’m through scared and I’m on the other side already, and I’ve thought about it,” Jack said. “Inoperable tumors aren’t natural either, or at least they shouldn’t be, but they’re what I’ve got: them, and five months before I’m too sick to get out of bed. And I want to make them count.”
“So, you’re going to lock yourself in a freezer for months at a time, just coming out for birthday parties and special occasions?”
“It’s not a freezer. It’s like a nice hotel room. They’ve got hundreds of them in the local TimeBubble building, and one’s mine for as long as I keep up the payments on it.”
“Level with me. Are you trying to buy yourself more time in case some new treatment gets invented in the future?”
