As I stood at the top of the cliff, with the wind softly caressing my face, I felt as if I was starting a new life.

A young man, who has just divorced his wife after their ten year old son tragically died in an accident, and has then gone on to loose his job and the majority of his friends, has hit rock bottom. In deep depression, the only way out that he can think of is to end his life. 

Travelling to his childhood vacation spot, he heads towards the huge cliff that looks over the Atlantic Ocean. But as he is about to jump the huge drop, a voice stops him. 

Somehow, his son is talking to him from beyond the grave and slowly yet surely he manages to get his life back on track, with his only son guiding his way. 

 

The End
