    A Student

    By Astigmatisme


     Nothing.
     Around you is nothing.
     To your left there is nothing, and to your right is also nothing.
     It is an endless void of nothingness.
    Where am I? You ask yourself. You have no idea, after all there’s literally nothing around you.
    What happened to me? Are you having amnesia? No, you can remember your name and details very clearly. Your brain also seems to be working just fine, 2 plus 2 is 4, right?
    Am I dead? No, your body seems pretty solid. You pinched your arm, and sure enough it hurts just as much as pinching your arm.
     To put it simply, you are fine.
     Just in a strange location.
     You tried to examine your surroundings. You walked, the ground is solid, even though there is nothing beneath you. You tried  to jump, it’s a solid ground alright.
     To put it simply, this is a real place.
     Somewhere.

     In the midst of all this confusion, there you see it. Just far out there.
     It is a shape? A geometry? A figure? Maybe you can see clearly what it is, maybe it just looks like some shadow. Maybe it doesn’t matter to you.
     What matter is that it’s a person.
     Me.
     “Hello?” you asked.
     I didn’t respond.
     “Hello?” you asked again.
     I stayed quiet, not responding.
     Some time passed before you asked again, “Can you hear me?”
     And just like last time, I chose not to respond.
     You then proceeded to walk towards me. It took some time, but you was then right in front of me. You then asked again, “Who are you?”
     I answered, “Who am I? Well, who am I to you?”
     You stayed quiet, confused. “What does that supposed to mean?” you questioned.
     “Well, you’ll have to figure that out.” I answered, happily.
     To you, I looked like something that does not make sense. I may look like a mist of smoke, or maybe a deformed lion? Am I in the shape of a long cylinder or a flat triangle? To you, I may look like nonsense, simply because your mind cannot comprehend my form.
    Maybe he’s a god? You asked yourself. Or maybe he's from my imagination?
     “Well then, how did you get here?” you asked, still baffled.
     “I got here by being here.” I answered.
     To another person, my answers may sound like nonsense, but to you, they must mean something.
     Something.

     I then proceeded to take a seat and sipped a cup of tea.
     “Wait, how did you do that?” you asked, shocked.
     “Do what?” I asked back.
     You walked around me, each time more baffled that before. Sure enough, I was sitting on an ordinary chair and sipping tea from a china cup.
     “How did you get these.. Things?” you asked.
     “I didn’t do this, you did.” I answered.
     And suddenly, we were inside a house. It was an average cabin, cosy all year-round, perfect for a small family.
     “What just happened?” you alarmingly asked.
     “Well, you did all of this.” I answered.
     It took you some time to adjust and understand the situation.
     In a snap, you instantly remembered where this is.
     Your childhood home.
    I did these? you asked yourself, half amazed and half confused. Am I revisiting my own past?
     “Is this some sort of flashback?” you asked, “Am I… dead?
     “Oh heavens no,” I quickly answered, “This is not a flashback of your life, and you’re certainly still alive.”
     “Well then, where are we?!” you demanded.

     I got up and discarded the cup of tea.
     “This,” I started, “Is your mind.”
     You were confused. “M-My mind?”
     “Yes.” I answered, “You are inside your own subconscious mind.”
     It took you a much longer time to understand.
     “My Mind?” you asked, “So that means I can do anything here?”
     “In a sense, it is your own world,” I answered.
     You fell silent.
     “Can I…go back to my real-life sense?”
     “Certainly yes.” I answered, “but you could hang out here and have some fun.”
     And sure enough, you decided to do a bit of fun first. Objects were popping in and out all over the place, Your old school, high school friends, old gaming consoles, everything rushed back and forth everywhere.
    In the end, you decided to change the scenery into a sunset you watched during your final college days.
     “Man… I missed my past.” you said.
     “Maybe you do, but it’s almost time to go back.”
     “Back?” you said, startled.
     …

     And then, everything went dark.
     “Back…” you repeated to yourself.
     The sunset turned into what looked like the deep space. Objects popped out, and the theme was getting darker.
     “Maybe,” you said, “Maybe I don’t want to go back.”
     I was shocked.
     “What makes you think of that?” I asked.
     The scenery turned to a dark rainy road in midnight. There was a person with a woman, throwing objects at him and walking away from him.
     This must be when she broke up with him a few months earlier.
     A second later, it turned into an office room with two men sitting face-to-face in front of a chair. The first man promptly pointed outwards, and the second one got out and left the room.
     This must be when he was fired from his job.
     Then, it changed again into the front of a school, a group of people were booing at a boy walking down the stairs, throwing school supplies at him.
     This must be when his friends abandoned him.
     Finally, it changed back into the deep, dark scenery.

     I was speechless.
     “I want to stay here.” You said, “I want to have a better life”
     “What you want is to abandon your old behaviour.” I said.
     “You hate yourself because you’ve done terrible things in the past that made them angry at you. You’ve made terrible decisions that you cannot put down all these years. You’ve regretted your actions wholly, yet you remain oblivious to the good things you’ve done in the midst of your poor decisions. What you are doing is not reevaluating your life, you are blinding your own mind with dark senses.”
     You were crying, tears formed all around in your eyes.
     I stood up and changed back the scenery.
     Back to when your ex left you.
     “Your old girlfriend left you because you cannot give her the affection she needs,” I said, “But three months later, she was walking alone when she stopped a woman from stabbing a man. If she was still with you, she would never have noticed that woman, and the man would surely be killed. You are also with another girl that can fix your bad attitude. You are now happier than you’ll ever be with your ex.”
     I changed it back to when you got fired.
     “You got fired by your boss because you are too slow to do your job properly, especially when the company is almost bankrupt,” I said, “But then, a new intern took over your position and has boosted the company exponentially. Not only did you save that company from bankruptcy, but you gave that new intern a proper job that could sustain him and his family. You, on the other hand, found another job and you’re now active in doing your job. You’re now more economically stable than before you got fired.”
     I finally changed it back to when your friends abandon you.
     “Your friends abandoned you because of your bad attitude,” I said, “But then, a new kid joined them, and they’ve transformed into the nicest group of kids you’ll ever meet. If you were still in there, they could’ve gotten influenced by you and became bullies. Instead, they’re now working as social workers, actively helping people when they need it most. You’ve then learned your lesson and made friends with new people, people than can be with you, and people that needs you, at all times.”

     I sat back down.
     “Even when you are the most vile person on earth, you have given benefit to other people and yourself. Even with every terrible action you do, you have helped someone and your own self with that action. You can’t just leave behind all your bad decisions, because every decision you do, whether bad or good, has benefited yourself and other people. You are not a terrible person, you are a student.
     You looked at me in fascination.
     “Now, it’s time for you to wake up and start a new day.”
