He had been given the watch on his tenth birthday. It was an ordinary grey plastic wristwatch in every respect except for the fact that it was counting down. “That is all of the time you have left in the world, son. Use it wisely.” And indeed he did. As the watch ticked away, the boy, now a man, lived life to the fullest. He climbed mountains and swam oceans. He talked and laughed and lived and loved. The man was never afraid, for he knew exactly how much time he had left.

Eventually, the watch began its final countdown. The old man stood looking over everything he had done, everything he had built. 5. He shook hands with his old business partner, the man who had long been his friend and confidant. 4. His dog came and licked his hand, earning a pat on the head for its companionship. 3. He hugged his son, knowing that he had been a good father. 2. He kissed his wife on the forehead one last time. 1. The old man smiled and closed his eyes.

Then, nothing happened. The watch beeped once and turned off. The man stood standing there, very much alive. You would think that in that moment he would have been overjoyed. Instead, for the first time in his life, the man was scared.

他在10岁的時候收到這支手表。它除了時間是倒數計時之外,其他各方面是一支普通的灰色塑胶手錶。他的父亲告訴他:這是你在這世上所剩下的時間,好好地運用它。而他也确实如此。當時間滴答滴答地走,他已經長大成人,並且過得非常充实。他爬山、游水、談笑、生活、相愛,並且從不畏惧,因為他知道剩下多少时间。

表終於,手錶開始最后倒數,此時他已是位老先生了。他回顾所有曾經做過与完成的事。5秒,他跟他的生意伙伴同時也是知己好友握手。4秒,他的狗過來舔他的手,他為他們之間的友誼拍拍牠的頭。3秒,他緊抱他的儿子,知道自己是個好父亲。2秒,他最后一次亲他太太的额头。1秒,他微笑著並閉上双眼。

之後,沒有發生任何事情。這支手表哔了一声同時關閉。他站在那儿,非常肯定自己还活着。你以為他這時候會非常高兴。但,這是他有生以來第一次感到恐惧。
