‘7 killed in shooting’

I’m gonna be a hero, he thinks, as he runs toward the gunman.

He’s smiling.

He’s been dreaming of this moment forever.

He’ll take the bullet.

And save a life.

He’ll end up in a coma because of it.

But he’ll wake up.

Because he’s a hero.

And everyone will finally see how brave and dashing he is.

And they will love him.

I’m gonna be a hero, he says aloud, as the gunman turns around, points the gun at him and shoots.

Straight to the heart.

He closes his eyes.

I’m gonna be…

And drifts away.


Just another number
