RE: Five minutes of Introspection
This is a very powerful story, @jackdeathblack. We don't know why the narrator is sitting there — hyper-aware of the time slowing passing as he contemplates his life and regrets — and that carriers us forward to learn why he is in this circumstance. Is something bad about to happen? Is he contemplating a crime? Ending his life?
But no... the bad thing has already happened. And it's a shocking realization when we come to understand exactly what has befallen him. Well done. A very intense and impactful story.
