There once was a tiger-striped cat. This cat died a million deaths, revived & lived a million lives, and he was owned by various people who he really didn’t care for. The cat wasn’t afraid to die. Then one day the cat became a stray cat which meant he was free. He met a white female cat & the two of them spent their days together happily. Well, years passed & the white cat grew weak & died of old age. The tiger-striped cat cried a million times, & then he died too. Except this time, he didn’t come back to life.

When I was younger, I wasn’t afraid of anything. I didn’t have the slightest fear of dying, no reason for it. I thought If I die that’s fine with me, anytime at all. Then I met a certain woman, and it changed. I started to think that I wanted to survive; for the first time the idea of death began to scare me.
