On Borrowed Time

This short story was written as an experiment, to see if it was possible to write any kind of comprehensible storyline through the use of dialogue alone, with no other description whatsoever. Initially I did reveal the identity of the character in the text, but on reading it back decided it could be perceived in different ways by different people, so I’ve left it up to the reader to decide who they think is being addressed.
