Has anyone ever considered hypnotism as an alternative medical treatment?
Dr. Otis was certain that he could eradicate the dark cancer plaguing his patient’s brain…all thanks to his golden skull pendant. But at what price? After all, you can’t stop death.
Like Final Destination, the patient still met a grim death soon after leaving the doctor’s office.
In this 12-year scheme, Otis has never experienced anything like this before. But, still, he shouldn’t feel bad. After all, “she asked for help out of her misery…she got it.” (12)
But then the words from that Chinese merchant reverberate in his head. “Once you put this on your neck, never take it off. For the day you do, its power diminishes forever…and so will your life.” (14)
This was an interesting, dark tale—smart and philosophical.
