I'm tired of using Lorem Ipsum, so I wrote this instead.

A hero was born, today.

As I opened my eyes, a light stared at me from the end of the tunnel. As I gazed for a moment, a waft of fresh air entered my solemn chamber.

I could hear, but not understand, voices and sirens from the end of the tunnel. Was this it? Was I about to die? I took a moment aside, before my fate would take me, to reflect upon my experiences in life. “What had I done,” I asked myself. Nothing could prepare me for death.

Suddenly, WOOSH! I slid down the slippery slope, headfirst, into that light. I was ready for death, and prepared to go willingly. But then something grabbed me.

“Is this the hand that saves me from destruction?”

“He’s crowning! Alright, PUSH!” The voices were loud, although familiar. While alive, I heard similar (but much more muffled) sounds.

I took a deep breath, but the air was light and frictionless. Come to think of it, there might not have been any air at all.

Not before long, I was completely in heaven. The chamber I was now in had limitless walls: the universe had no end! I tried to inspect my surroundings, but the light was blinding and my body was being carried by streams of force. I screamed; the experience was terrifying.

I asked myself, “is this death?” But then, inspiration struck! These giants that I could hardly make out, they weren’t angels or demons: they were just like me!

I stopped crying. It was life.
