The reason I chose the title for my story and why this is only the first chapter, Because!

When I was born the energy of the universe was stamped on my soul. Maybe, every thing I have experienced in this life was by design. At least, those things that I have been allowed to experience, due to my own free will choices or the free will of others. Negative or positive. Really, what we go through daily has the ability to have both energies attached to them, right? At least, I believe this to be the case.

Some events in our lives definitely have stronger energy than others attached to them. I have many experiences to share with you and this is not going to be over quickly. So, after this chapter is complete, I will post another on Friday of every week until the 11th and final chapter is complete. For the duration of my story, anytime I share a name it will be by the first capital letter only, to protect those identities, I will specify cities if I feel it is relevant, but for the most part I will refrain from that as well. This is a true story, based on actual events.

I was born to loving parents, L&M, under very trying circumstances, I was the 2nd child and first son, into a non-religious family. I was premature and was underweight. While in the hospital, I had pneumonia and a severe ear infection (which will play a role in other chapters). I, also, was written into a medical journal for being treated for uremic poisoning,

Uremia is caused by insufficient urinary excretion for any reason.
. Aside from that, how I got to the hospital was in itself very stressful. M was out of town on business, my due date was 1 1/2 months from the day I was born, so I wasn't expected so soon. One of my mother's best friends, C, was visiting and was there the day mother's water broke. Only, one problem, mother had a stick shift and C did not know how to drive one! Off they went, mother in labor, C in the driver seat and mom yelling "clutch" when it was time to shift. Hysterical now, not so then.

Of course, I am having to rely on what has been told to me, mixed with actual facts. I managed to make it to this point. I believe the first memory I actually have is what happened to me when I was 2. L was playing cards at a friends place, M was playing cards with guy friends and watching football at home, while baby sitting me. I remember certain aspects of that day, the other facts were given to me, what I remember is going to the candy store to get me some candy. I walked out of the apartment, across railroad tracks, across a busy intersection, to the corner store. When they saw me they kept waiting for my parents to come in behind me, finally the lady asked me where is your daddy, and I told her he was watching t.v. I wanted some candy. She knew who I was and called my dad and told him where I was. That was the day my dad almost got killed by my mother or divorced.

I have decided that each chapter will have about 5-7 years in them. I have neuropathy and I do get tired easily, so I am going to end this mid chapter, today! Perhaps, I will finish it later.

I guess short stories don't get much attention unless they are fictional, creepy or have weird titles? I may have been a tad optimistic.
