Prelude: BE -Y- ON

Patted on the shoulder

The boy raised his head without looking back

He didn’t need to

He knew all too well who was standing behind him

“Is it time?”

The words  whispered while taking a deep breath

“Yes”

The answer came as no surprise

He had been preparing for this moment his whole life

“It had to be you?, didn’t it?”

Silence filled the room the boy expected no answer

“It doesn’t have to be like this”

“You don’t have to play by their rules”

Biting his lower lip, the words choked in his throat

“You know I thought I’d be OK with this. I thought I was ready”

The figure replied

“Nobody ever is”

The boy lashed out

“We can beat this I know we can”

The reply came in a gentle tone

” Such is youth”

As the footsteps echoed so did the words
