Why Me? | Episode 30

Jason wandered for some time in an almost catatonic state, simply thinking trying to figure out what was going on with him.  He soon realized that he was standing in front of Franklin’s house and saw an ambulance pulling away.  Emma was standing there crying.  He approached her carefully, realizing yet again that she could not see him and he wrapped his arms around her, trying to comfort her from the pain, she was so obviously, in.  Just as his arms fell in around her she folded her arms and shivered.  He asked “What happened to Franklin?” even though he was sure she wouldn’t answer him or hear him for that matter.  He stood there for a moment longer, then Emma moved, starting towards her car.  He decided to follow her just to make sure that she was ok.  He got on the passenger side and watched her as she started to drive home.  At some point, she broke down and started sobbing, and he tried to dry the tears from her eyes.  It made him sad to see her like this and not be able to do anything about it.  Sure, he wasn’t always that good to her and he had his problems but he would always love her. 

Then it hit him, a sharp spasm ran through his body, and he remembered what had happened to him a few nights earlier, and he realized what must have happened to Franklin and why the ambulance was there.  He was dead!  Another painful spasm coursed through his body and he looked around and found that he was in the middle of nowhere, where he had woken up a few days earlier naked and filthy.  He looked around curiously and there he was.  His body was just lying there bloated and discolored, it was too much for him to handle and he fell to his knees and started to cry or at least that is what he felt like he was doing.  Through his sobs, if anyone could hear him, all they would have made out was “Why me?”
