Alphos: Who am I?
Hey guys Alphos here with a change of pace.
Inspired by horsyqueen's article of similar title, I have decided to release some details of my past to you, the public, so you can better understand me as a person and as a teacher.
In the begining...
Just kidding, I'm not starting biblical on you guys.
I discovered my powers when I was in Grade 11 at high school in Canada (the nation of which I am a citizen and proud of it!)
Skip ahead 3 years...
Discovering I could boost my skill level and telepathic powers through daily meditation. I have done so for 45 years, after every mean for 15 minutes. I can afford to throw time to the wind because I am retired and have nothing better to do.
At this point I was... 20 if my math is right and memory serves. This was the year I married my wife (in Canada, people can get married at 18 but I think it was 19 or 20 back then so my math should indeed be correct.) I know now that I was WAHAHAY to young to get married but I was young and in love.
Skip ahead 1 year...
I am now 21 years old. To celebrate my best buddy's birthday, I invited him out for a night on the town... my treat. We danced, drank, and had a ton of fun until the wee hours of the morning. We had a great time but all good things must come to an end... and BOY did it ever come to an end. It was late and I was dumb enough to let my buddy drive us home. He was indeed drunk. I was not drunk because I am able to hold my liquor better than him. It had to be around 1:30 in the morning. (I've told this tale a few times here).
He got in the car and started driving. I noticed after about 10 mins. that he was going really fast. I mean REALLY fast. I told him to slow down but, being drunk, he didn't think he was speeding. All of a sudden, he swirved around another car and plowed into the meridian that divides the highway lanes oncoming and outgoing.
Our car went tumbling over the barrier and slammed into another. Halfway through the last flip, I was hurtled out the window. After the car lost its momentum, it came to a stop... on top of my legs. My friend was killed by a piece of metal that lodged itself in his chest. I survived... barely.
I was lucky somebody saw the accident (who wouldn't on the highway) and called 911. It took over an hour and a half for them to arrive. That was the most agonizing hour and a half I ever experienced, it felt like days. The car had slammed on top of my legs and broken more bones than I care to count. But that's not the worst part. After a halfhour or so I realized I couldn't feel my toes. After an hour I couldn't move my legs. By the time the paramedics finaly arrived and got that car off my legs, I realized that I couldn't move anything below my waist. I couldn't feel my legs. I couldn't feel the bleeding.
They rushed me to the hospital but it was too late. When I got there, the doctor told me my legs had broken in more than 52 places and that they had become necrotic (they began to die and rot of my body). They had only one option... they had to amputate both my legs. To those of you who have seen Forrest Gump, It wasn't a Leutennant Dann amputation where they left stubs. They took my legs off... all of it. They had to in order to stop the rest of my body from becoming necrotic as well. I was in the hospital for three months recovering.
I thought I could rely on my wife but she couldn't stand the sight of me anymore. She divorced me before I could leave my hospital bed. I was deemed unable to pass judgement of my own so my Lawyer did my part... I couldn't even defend myself in court like other couples.
Fast Forward lots more years (can't remember the exact number.)
Before my wife left me we were able to concieve a daughter (thank god). When she was born, my wife gave her to me... full custody and forgot the visitation rights. She would be my responsibility. At this point she was married and had a daughter... Eve. The same Eve I now care for.
Same highway I had my accident on, they had a similar accident. My sweet daughter and son in law had been killed instantly. Eve was the only survivor. I became her guardian.
Fast Forward 5 more years...
That takes us up to now. Simple as that. Nothing else to say
Until next time,
Keep your stick on the Ice.
