In fifty years (Jez)

A warning from the future for this protagonist:

Out of the blue I realised. Looking in the mirror I blinked and saw myself in fifty years time. I was not happy. Sure, that’s me, but something wasn’t right at all. I looked closer. I was lonely, had no family, was nothing but a bald headed loner. How did this happen? I feel like an alien, don’t feel comfortable in my own skin all of a sudden. I think back to my life. Could I have done anything different? I make myself promise that I won’t end up like that. I will make it different.

    I wonder how the character will make it different. A great piece to make you think about choices! Wow!
