I saw him sitting there blankly staring into the calmness of the river far below. I stopped my bus and called out to him.

Hey, come down from there!
There’s only one way down. This is how it ends.
No. There’s always two sides. Good and evil. Heaven and Hell. Living and dying.
Not for me. I’m done. I’m just a small step away from ending my suffering.
No. You’re one small step away from beginning again.

I climbed on to the rail with him. It was a long way down. Come get on my bus. I’ll take you home.
