Never In My Wildest Dreams
You came into my world like high beams on some two lane highway in the middle of a desert night; just as I lost the fight between thirty more miles and pulling over for a nap until sunrise. Fracturing my momentary dream into a million pieces of panic and surprise as your light burned through the lids of my eyes and your horn’s noise grabbed at nerves that shook my insides alive.
I remember the giant halo of your glow and light coming head on, the fog in my brain was overwhelming, as muscle memory spurred both hands and they registered on the wheel. My grasp was wrapped tight and pulled sharply, sending me into a wrenching swerve; a sudden desperate attempt to avoid our impending collision, as you careened head long my way. In the moments that came, I couldn’t tell if you were slowing or attempting to avoid the obstruction of my vehicle that had wondered into your lane. I only knew the fear as my life flashed before my frozen, bulging eyes. I felt my knuckles strain, threatening to rip flesh, as they pulled against the tension of my grasp on the wheel.
I remember feeling my knee slam under the dash as terror took me and I over compensated. With pang in knee, I stabbed my foot back down at the break. I remember the feeling of gravity shift as my vehicle began to swerve and my body flatten into the door panel as I began the fight to regain control of my vehicle, careening down that lonely highway.
I remember my body recognized and felt something I couldn’t have truly felt. At least something felt different, this specific time, than any other before or after. Both the fear of loosing control and this new feeling are forever linked somehow. It was something I felt as my shoulder pressed into the drivers side door panel: the feel of the gravel beneath my tires, not in the normal sense of peeling out, or hot rodding around a turn, or when you are navigating a gravel incline and a tire slips, spinning a bit. But, I remember feeling every, single, piece, of gravel, as my tires slid over them, like they were brail desperately attempting to be read by someone with an untrained hand.
And suddenly, I remember, I was fighting gravity to avoid being thrown into the empty passenger seat next to me; with the dutiful assistance of my seat belt I remained square in seat. By this point my perspiration was beading at my brow and my palms were slick and damp. The smell filling my nose was terrible: rubber skidding across tar and the metal chemical burn of clutch mixed with burning metallic fumes of locked, red hot breaks. The noxious smoke produced from the instant tire tread wear of tires attempting to grapple with the texture of pavement at sixty miles per hour and the dust thrown up from the narrow desert road was thick in the air as my vehicle began to spin violently. This must have been one of my wildest dreams.
Your tail lights passed by my view out the front windshield a few times before I came to a slow, lazy roll backwards, eventually coming to a halt on the pavement; vision now dizzy and disoriented. My motion had not stopped however. The spinning had turned my head into one of those twirling carnival rides and transformed my extremities into shaking nerve noodles, who’s vibration emanated from my core.
Regaining my composure, I found myself immediately worried about who I had almost collided with and what state they were in; my concern seemingly met with reply as your hazard lights lit up from the tail lights of your vehicle ahead. I remember blood pumping in my temples as I raced toward your vehicle, grateful to be alive, and grateful you were still on the road and in one piece as well. Closing the distance to your flashing hazards just hoping you were okay. I felt embarrassed and foolish for putting myself, and you, at risk not stopping a few miles back. I prayed you were not scared or upset with me. Not knowing what to expect as I slowed to a jog nearing your vehicle, I took in the details of the multiple spins my vehicle completed as it whipped round and round directly down the center of the highway. I took in the sight of fresh tread on the pavement left by my tires, scrawled like a signature of some artist signing their work of near miss.
I remember as I looked up again to where your vehicle had come to a stop, that you too where now running my direction. As we approached each other I could tell we both did a quick visual assessment of each other, our vehicles, the tire tread scrawl on the road. We asked each other if the other was okay and learned no harm had come to the other other than shaken nerves and a bit of embarrassment on my part.
I remember hearing your laugh for the first time as we sat on the side of that highway in the middle of the night and lost track of time. We talked about everything, and nothing, as we watched the stars and smiled at each other honestly. Morning came faster than either of us expected announcing it’s a rival gloriously. The sunrise was exceptionally beautiful that morning. As we peacefully watched, finally pausing in conversation for the first time since we met, we took in it’s orange, blue, yellow, and pink shifting colors sharing glances at each other now and then, smiles and blushing cheeks as we did.
As the morning sun’s heat set upon our skin and the brightness of the desert view began to become overwhelming you turned to me with a smile. I remember taking your business card and the electricity fire through my fingertips as our hands touched for the first time.
Your touch felt so exotic then, like some distant land I had read a million books about and knew every detail of but had only learned from in the texts written in those pages. I imagine I looked like an adventurer, captivated and in awe, as they stepped of an old steam engine train onto a new landscape. Amusing the locals watching a new traveler standing starstruck seeing, smelling, and feeling the foreign environment they had read so much about but were only experiencing in person for the first time.
As I put your business card into my wallet, so many unknown feelings and pressing questions that I wanted to ask you were coming to my head fighting each other for place in line and internally pleading for one more second of your time. They were interrupted by one major new question I hadn’t considered so distracted by my internal conflict.
When would I would see you again? This question was followed by an even larger: Would I see you again? I was so caught off guard at their staggering weight I remember feeling intimidated by how much it meant to me. I chickened out. I didn’t ask and though in that moment didn’t know what to do with myself, or my shaken emotions, as we said our good byes.
Before you turned to depart I managed to make sure you too had my number and awkwardly, shuffled back, half facing you, half trying to walk away. I could tell you noticed in the words your smile always seemed to hold.
I remember you driving away and the stress I felt realizing we were going in opposite directions for the first time since we met and how something immediately felt missing in my world. I remember kicking myself not wanting to end up just some guy who you met and called you down the road or being just a story of a time you almost got hit head on by some guy in the middle a desert one night. A bit late, but just in time, I buckled my seat belt and decided not to become that guy. I threw my vehicle in drive and accelerated after you. Headed in your direction for the first time.
My heart raced as I drove fast to catch up to your vehicle once again and as I pulled up behind you, obnoxiously got your attention with my horn and the flashing of my lights. I couldn’t believe I had chased after you like a crazy! What would you think of this? Was I crazy?
As you stepped out of your vehicle your beauty was staggering and I confidently acknowledged, almost applauded myself; I had made the right decision. I jogged up to you on the pavement of that two lane highway and blurted out “When will I see you again?!”. Your laugh told me everything as it often did, I would learn.
I canceling my plans, my new job would have to wait, or I’d find a new one when I got to my destination. I suddenly had you placed at the center of my life’s main screen and didn’t for one second consider what else was on outside in my periphery. Everything seemed like it mattered just a little bit less than the focus my mind found when trained on you. I spent the day with you, headed in your direction. We played, both lost in the world together, on a new adventure, and loving every moment of it.
By that evening I was already in love, and knew it as for the first time I watched the sunset reflect forever in your eyes. I will never in my wildest dreams forget your smile when I admitted my love to you as we watched those stars again, together, that second night.
I also remember how we really met, and this isn’t it! Not even close! But it sure could have been. I mean, some things are similar to how we met all those years ago. You do remember don’t you?
The night we first met we were hurling in each other’s direction at a million miles per hour and barely missed colliding. That near miss put us into permanent dance as we orbited each other - dancing in and out of each other’s life, always friends, lovers, strangers, family; whatever we needed to be for the other at that specific moment in time. The first night we met I knew I had met the most amazing woman and I couldn’t believe that I had finally found you; never in my wildest dreams did I think you were really out there.
We did watch the stars and talked until the sun came up. We also spent the next day playing together and I really did watch the sunset reflect forever in your eyes. I did fall in love with you, only immediately, almost at first sight.
My love switch flipped the very moment you said “Hiiii” that way you did. Your mysterious brown eyes - strands coloring them wonderful, as your cheeks smiled for days. They reached into me latching onto my heart and I did not resist the comfort of your grasp. There was just something so familiar in the way you drew me in and made a place for me in your world. I felt like I had seen this smile of yours before somewhere and it belonged right after that “Hiiii”, and right in front of me. There was also something so familiar in the way you said my name, always smiling, you giggled a lot more back then.
I chased after you and that smile, following the echoes of that giggle from that moment on without any regret and loved every moment you chased me back laughing as we played. I remember how grateful I was getting to know you, and how grateful I always will be to have spent all the moments we shared through the years, building our story. The rest of that story and how we really first met is ours. A story to be remembered another time I think.
I remember the many other things that are similar in the story I have told but happened completely differently, to a completely different moment, in a completely different part of our story that I’d like to share in this letter to you. I think it is supposed to help...telling you these things, we always shared our deepest feelings with each other and It’s hard holding them all by myself. I’m working on it, love, I promised. Writing these letters to you and the chapters of our time together contained within.
In this part of our story, the true part of this story, and part of our chapters I’m sharing in this letter is a moment where I remember a collision that happened head on and it all started with a phone call.
I remember we were both asleep at the wheel and wholly unprepared as I raced down the highway to you. I remember how sudden the impact came after I reached your side. I remember the pain and jarring as your light in my world, that light that engulfed my vision completely, was in a moment no longer present. I remember my confusion as my momentum came to a complete, and immediate, stop. I remember that I didn’t even have time to scream or brace myself as everything in my world shattered in a devastating explosion and all it’s shiny pieces showered into the air around me. I remember that I didn’t even have both hands on the wheel as my life turned upside down. I remember that there was no seat belt to fasten me in as my breath choked in my throat, stalled, as if suspended mid air.
I remember the look, taste, sound, smell, touch, and feeling of every, single, thing, in that hospital room. I remember the smell of my tears in your hair. I remember how soft your skin was and that your fingernails were not painted like they normally were as I held your hand. I remember the feeling of my nerves as they achieved complete pandaemonium within me. I remember I was trembling as I struggled to breath between crying, then breathing, then crying, tasting the snot running from my nose mixed with the salt that clung to my face as I sat at your side. I remember hearing the sobs in the room as your heart rate monitor stopped blinking. I remember that exact moment you left me. I remember all of the feelings I felt at that moment as my emotions burned deep within and imprinted them as if by brand, permanently emblazoned on my soul. I remember not having the words for them then and I still do not have words for them now.
I remember every single detail, reflected in the pieces of my world as they crashed to the polished surface of the tiny room’s grey and white checkered tile floor. I remember that for the first time in a long time we were no longer running toward each other, or in the same direction together, and you weren’t there to make sure I was okay. I remember praying that you would be okay but my heart didn’t hear the echo of yours anymore to be sure. I remember hoping you were not lonely just minutes after you left and began crying: differently, because I didn’t know how to be there for you like I promised I always would be. I remember wanting so badly to chase after you, especially in the months that followed your funeral to keep that promise I made. I remember wanting to make sure you weren’t alone and be by your side as you took off on this new adventure to make sure you got under way okay. I remember trying to lighten my mood and joke about you making a new friend jealous, telling them about a guy that loved you unconditionally in another life. But, I remembered I could not chase you this time; I couldn’t be there to hold you if you happened to fall in love with him and he broke your heart. There was no catching up to you minutes down the road, just to see your smile again and hear you laugh at me for being silly. There was no way to pick you up off the ground and piece your heart back together with pieces of mine if it was broken this time.
I can only hope you receive all the letters like this one and that you are able to answer my call when I get home. We can meet in the middle of some two lane highway in the clouds, talking about life down below, or everything, or nothing, and laugh at the concept of time.
I can’t wait for that moment I see you again and we can remember all the years since the night we first met and remind each other how that story really went. I want so badly to be reminded exactly how it feels seeing the sunset reflect forever in your eyes like I used to.
I remember you every single day and wrote this letter to remind you: that more than anything, I patiently wait to learn how we finish our story, because never in my wildest dreams, could these stars be as beautiful as I remember, all those moments, I spent watching them with you.

One last time only the last of an epic love to end
One last time give my life with you to blend.
Batman beyond …..
Terry McGinnis(Batman) and Nathaniel Adam(Captain Atom) was fighting against two Eobard Thawne from different time line
Terry : “How the hell Negetive Flash still exist? I thought Barry Allen killed him finally”
Adam: “Timeline is destroyed, everything is mess, I can't go back to my timeline anymore, it's impossible to tell now what exactly happened, I wish Superman was alive”
After a huge battle finally Eobard Thawne saved himself by using another version of himself from different time line as shield but just when he was about to get away again as he always does, he was captured by Bruce Wayne using time stream.
Eobard Thawne was moving all the time but only in a loop as result he was still in one place as a prisoner of Bruce Wayne
Eobard: “Nice trick. Good to see your old horse still has some running left, Bruce Wayne. Yeah, I know who are you, Batman, ha, ha”
Bruce: “Yeah, I am not surprised that you know about me but why not kill me before?”
Eobard: “Ha, ha, I want to believe me, I so want to kill you but I can't because if I kill you then………….”
Bruce: “What? What do you about to say?”
Eobard: “Nothing, I am just bored. So do you take blue pill now? Ha, ha, it must be hard being an old man who once went toe to toe with a God. How are you, Bruce, how is old life treating you? Ha, ha”
Bruce: “You were about to say something”
Eobard: “Forget that old man, just seeing you like this is enough entertainment for me. How is Selena, by the way? Does she have grandma arm yet? Grandma arm with leather. I have to see that. Ha, ha, ha”
Bruce Wayne could not tolerate anymore, he came and knocked Eobard Thawne out with just one punch
Terry saw that and said, “Wow, hold on, Mr Wayne, remember you are not a spring chicken anymore”
Bruce said with a tremendous annoyance, “THAT'S WHAT EVERYONE KEEPS TELLING ME. Watch out for this guy” in saying this he left the room
Adam : “You hurt Bruce's sentiment”
Terry: “I know but someone has to say that. He still believes that he is Batman with his cape on”
Adam: “I know Bruce from a long time. Bruce maybe old but Batman isn't. And Batman will never die. You are the big example of that”
Terry McGinnis: “I know but I am not Bruce Wayne”
Adam: “Yeah, but you are his son so that's as close as it gets”
Both of them left the room…..
When Eobard Thawne woke up, he suddenly saw he was in a different place. He remembered the first time he was in a central city to Barry Allen's mother. But because of the inexperience he was lost for a while in speed force.
He said to himself, “WTF? I thought I was in the future caught by an old Bruce Wayne. Shame on me. But how come I am in this time line? Let me avoid this scenario, I don't want to get caught by speed force again. Let's change the previous mistake. Let's go to Gotham City instead, let's see what is going on there”
He was standing in front of bus stand waiting as another ordinary people in normal clothes. Suddenly, he heard alarm bells are ringing in a nearby Gotham bank. A band of bank dacoits escaping after looting the bank in a car. Suddenly, he heard a siren of police van and saw young commissioner Gordon (he hasn't been commissioner yet) was chasing them and probably will catch them.
Eobard Thawne said to one police officer, “I know where they are going”
That police officer said, “Fuck off, let us work” in saying this he pushed Eobard Thawne.
Eobard Thawne said with tremendous anger, “You idiot, do you know who am I?”
Police officer said, “Yes, who are you?”
Eobard Thawne said, “I am…….. I am…..”
Police officer said, “Yeah, that's what I thought. Now get out of here otherwise I will sent you to Arkham Asylum, ha, ha” in saying this he left
Eobard Thawne checked himself and said, “Fuck you GCP, no wonder nobody wants to support you” in saying this he started to run wearing his yellow costume again and helped bank dacoits escaped
Gordon said, “What happened? How come our tire burst now. I thought that we had a new tire just now”
In the meantime-
Bank Dacoits saw Eobard Thawne helping them escape. They told him, “Thanks mate for the help. Our Boss would like to meet you”
Eobard Thawne said, “I am not interested in petty crime”
One of them said, “My name is Joe Chill, I work for ‘The Roman'. Come with us. You will find it interesting”
Eobard Thawne said, “What can a old fashioned crime family have that will be any interesting to me?”
Joe Chill said, “You will be surprised. For example we know that you have come from the future”
Eobard was surprised and said, “Okay, I am interested now. Let's go”
Eobard knew who this Roman was infact he knew about entire Falcone family but never had any interest in mob related crime. He always considered himself above from them. So when they surprised him. He had to go with them.
But he instead met with someone else.
Suddenly, Eobard Thawne realised that he was under the influence of some kind of mind attack and someone is reading his brain.
He woke up and saw someone.
He saw Bruce Wayne was smiling and someone else was standing beside him.
Bruce Wayne said, “I know you came from a different time line because otherwise you would have known that Selina Kyle was dead a long time ago. Which means that you don't know everything and probably working with someone. Introducing Lucien Crawley, he has telekinesis power. We are about to know what you were hiding. You better tell us what you know”
Eobard Thawne said, “This is low even for Batman. People should have that much privacy”
Bruce Wayne said, “Yeah, you are not smiling now. You better tell us or you will find out how far I can go to find out information”
Eobard Thawne said, “There's a reason why Joker is so attracted to you, Batman”
First time Bruce Wayne was slightly taken aback by this and said, “What do you mean?”
Eobard Thawne said, “You created him”
Batman said, “WHAT?”
Eobard Thawne said, “In alternate universe, Joker will get the power of Mr Mxyzptlk and become Emperor Joker, there will be no defence against him, in trying to defeat him, you from another universe, will have to split him into three parts, how you did it, it's not important since you are the reason. Joe Chill the guy who killed your parents, will be one of his father. After that it's a long story. If you kill Joe Chill then you will kill Joker hence he will retain to his emperor Joker Avtar. Hence you can never kill Joker no matter how nasty SOB he will become”
Bruce Wayne said, “Joker is that young??!!!?”
Eobard Thawne said, “This one is”
Bruce Wayne said, “What is your relation to all this?”
Eobard Thawne said, “Joker helped me kill Barry Allen. I helped him learned his true identity”
Bruce Wayne said, “What?????”
Eobard Thawne said, “He asked me not to ever disclose your true identity to him. He preferred that way. He actually is grateful to you that you stopped him from becoming Emperor Joker. I know sounds crazy but then again we are taking about Joker here”
Bruce Wayne never thought this will be possible. He said to Eobard Thawne, “Can't this Incident ever be changed?”
Eobard Thawne said with a smile, “You can try but you do know what happened to Barry Allen when he changed the past”
Bruce Wayne said to Lucien Crawley, “Send me back in time in Eobard Thawne's body, Joker can't know this. He is too insane to know this information”
Crawley said, “I am ameturish in this. There could be a risk”
Bruce Wayne said, “I am prepared to take that”
Eobard Thawne said, “If joker wasn't hetrosexual, I would say he is gay for you, Batman, he hates you as much as he likes you and respects you, now where do you get a villain like that, ha, ha”
Crawley said, “Shut up” and he sent Bruce Wayne in Thawne's body in the past and Bruce Wayne suddenly found himself infront of Roman the Falcone family the crime boss.
Boss said, “I have a job for you, if you kill Thomas Wayne, I can give you what you want”
Bruce disinterestedly said, “What can You give me?”
Boss said, “You, Batman, you”
Bruce was surprised and spell bound
Boss said, “All this very confusing, I know”
Bruce Wayne said, “Who are you? And how do you know all this?”
Boss said, “My name is Lucien Crawley, you know me in future as Mind grabbing kid, what a ridiculas name, I know, I was such a stupid Superhero, I am much better villain, won't you say?”.
Bruce Wayne said, “What do you want?”
Lucien Crawley said, “Nothing. I am just bored, I just wanted to see you suffer, see for a long time my powers has been my weakness, I could do what I wanted to do with my powers but I had no control over this, I killed my parents, my girlfriend because of this. Then I didn't want to pretend anymore, I owned up my power, I went into the mind of anyone I wanted, I saw everything in the past, future and present, I was the one responsible for Joker becoming Emperor Joker, see it's all been a very good entertainment but I have not seen the greatest one yet. What would the great Batman do when he would know that his parents would be killed by Joe Chill but if Batman stopped him then he would never become one. Which one is bigger disaster? Bruce's parents death or there's no Batman. I want to see Batman is making that choice. Is there a bigger need for Batman becoming Batman in Gotham City even more than Thomas and Martha Wayne's life?” in saying that he did something and Bruce Wayne found himself in Joe Chill's body and Eobard Thawne disappeared saying goodluck as sarcasm.
Bruce Wayne saw himself pointing gun towards his parents and young Bruce in that alley.
He heard, his father was shouting, “Let us go, take everything and let us go” and they attacked on him and gun went off accidentally which took the head off little Bruce.
Bruce Wayne said with horror and confusion, “NOOOO……….”
Suddenly, everything was vanishing and Bruce Wayne lost consciousness and when he woke up, he found himself infront of very worried Terry McGinnis and Nathaniel Adam.
Bruce Wayne said, “WHAT HAPPENED? HOW AM I ALIVE?”
Terry McGinnis said, “Dad, did you think I will ever let you go like this? We and Adam went to future knowing Eobard Thawne, he must have done something to the time line, we found out about Joker's origin and possible disaster where Batman never existed. Bruce Wayne died in a drug over dose”
Adam said, “You should thank Amanda Waller that Terry is a clone of you, not your direct bloodline which is why we were uneffected by the corruption in time line, we realised Lucien Crawley's real identity, he infact never had any real power except time manipulation hence I was uneffected by his timeline corruption, we both took care him and sent Eobard Thawne to Barry Allen's time line to take care of him, only Flash can take care of Negetive Flash”
Terry McGinnis said, “We changed everything back, I won't let you die, Father, Batman can't die”
Both Bruce Wayne and Terry McGinnis got emotional and hugged each other
Adam left the room.
Bruce Wayne said to Terry, “I am proud of you, my son, you made me realised today, I was worried for wrong reason, Batman never got old, he is young, alive and kicking ass through you, I am proud of you, my son”
