I play my day of as if I was just not feeling good, you know like when you feel sick but can still do everything. As the day got closer and closer to the end it all came back to me… LATER THAT NIGHT … I had got push in to a base of Nuclear Acid and now I relished that I have SUPER POWERS

    My hands, they’re glowing. They’ve stopped shaking. Now, they glow. As if they are lit from within. As if my bones are luminous. I look down to see if my feet are glowing too. I can’t see them. The lower half of my body seems to be covered in a cloud of some sort. Is it the morphine they gave to ease the pain? But shouldn’t it be up in my head? How did the cloud cover my legs? Then I see them. More cloud-covered people. They look like demi-gods. Long hair, flowing white robes, glowing hands and the faces. They all look so much at peace. Is that how I look? Am I at peace too, at last?
