“People always question what happens in the afterlife, will the world end in chaos? how evolutionized will the human race ever be? Are heaven and hell waiting for us the afterlife? But most importantly, Does God exist?” These were the heading questions of Louie’s project in his first-year of high-school. He will be graduating in three year as part of the class of 2000. Louie Elmor, a 16-year-old boy who lives with his foster parents, James and Yara Elmor. According to Elmor’s parents, Louie was found an infant on their front door on a rainy day in September 1983. Given that the family could not bear children, they decided to adopt Louie and granted him their last name. Bookmark here

“When humans turn exactly 18 years old, from the time of their sperm and egg fertilize, a 5-triangle mark (/\/\/\/\/\) starts into taking shape on their upper chests, right upon their hearts,” said Dr Henry, a clinical embryologist on the radio. Bookmark here

Louie ‘s project’s presentation day arrived. He pulled an all-nighter for preparation. He then had a refreshing shower, dressed up smart, tucked his fine suit and went to school. As he was passing down the street, he sensed a shadow that seemed to be following him. He turned his head to find nothing but an empty street. “I guess I am tired after all yesterday’s preparation” Louie thoughtBookmark here

- Louie: Good morning Elizabeth, how are you doing?Bookmark here

- Elizabeth smiled and said: Couldn’t be better. How is your presentation going on?Bookmark here

- Louie: Thank you, Akasuki, you’ve always been cheering me up ever since we were in grade school, I hope I always live up to your expectations.” Bookmark here

“For the longest time, humans were evolving both physically and mentally. We either lost parts of our bodies that were deemed unnecessary by natural selection or became more intellectually developed in terms of our politics and legalities. With all our advances in society, we still have not acknowledged the afterlife.” Louie concluded his presentation elegantly and received a big applaud from his class and teacher. “Bookmark here

- Elizabeth: That was a great presentation, LouieBookmark here

- Garen: Hey Louie, you have been amazing. Still, I bet my project is going to surpass yours easily Bookmark here

Once again Garen has lost to Louie. Louie’s best friends were Elizabeth and Garen. Louie knew Elizabeth ever since third grade; she is known for being kind, altruistic and supportive. Garen was Louie’s rival and his trusting friend. They have always competed in everything and anything, from sports to grades; however, Louie used to always win and surpass Garen. In fact, Louie never lost to Garen or to the rest of his class in any kind of competition. Bookmark here
