My sleeping self remembers from radio-like memories. I start walking into that distant time. The monochrome sky stretches out past the limits of the world and I and he is stood in front of me.
It was always him who I was with. No matter what happened we were together. He said to me what he said that time, “Why are we in such an awful world? If I look upon it, it’s empty. I don’t want to exist in a world like this. So, I will change it.” I had always ignored it, but you felt the rain, the rain of hardships, and you wouldn’t accept it. Our town that we grew up in was incredibly poor. Of course it was hard. An everyday struggle. But then there was you parents. During a riot, they were killed.

It is the day of the election results. The clock hands push us forward. The time is nearing. I feel a cold hand touch my shoulder; like the coldness in those eyes has spread throughout your body. You could tell I was worried. Then, it was time, you left. Alone, I am left waiting. Minutes have flowed by and my heart is pounding. The door is opening, you’re back. You look emotionless. What are you thinking? Surely you will be happy, but you haven’t smiled in years. Then you spoke the words. ”We did it. I am the new leader of this place – we can start to make change.” I can’t believe it. We did it! We were dried of everything but the future and now it...
