You die. Your mother dies and Nathan dies.
You are pulled apart in a million tiny
bits, ripped into pieces that dissolve into
flecks. You do not notice, still too
preoccupied by the pain of being replaced.
A bell tolls somewhere in the world, and
your grandfather never knew you existed.

but this isn't the end. Armed with new
knowledge, you can return to a previous
point in your journey.

Maybe a new decision is in order. Or, maybe you want to start over.
