There are few people in this world who are worth listening to. Christopher is one of them. Danger surrounds him but hope creates him. The drugs that fill his veins are his only chance for happiness. He’s bound by the idea of it. But no one knows exactly what it really means to him. He knows what he’s capable of. Sooner or later, so will everyone else.
Saturday morning comes around and he’s looking for his fix. The only thing to get him through each day is the thing that will destroy him. Christopher has implausible potential. But sooner or later, everyone will know what he’s capable of. They say what he wants to do is cowardly, but he knows it is the most courageous thing he ever will achieve. He has nothing. Soon, he will have everything. He finds the needle filled with the few drops of the morphine and prepares to help himself get through the rest of the day. He hesitates for the first time in a long time. This is the start of Christopher’s new life.
