It was only then.

Mr. Pop had a glow in the dark watch. He told me it was important to him and told me to look after it while he went on a trip to save the world. I didn’t say anything and he just put the watch in my hand. It wasn’t ticking, the time had long since frozen. He smiled I think, then walked off to the bus stop. I didn’t think to tell him the world was saved three years ago by my next door neighbour. I looked at the watch  and let it slide into the bin. I just watched the watch glow green in the dark pits of trash, possibly for five minutes; I wasn’t sure as the clock wasn’t ticking. It was only then when I realised

my head was empty.
