Just 13,648 realities over, my Alison is still alive. From all I can ascertain, that seems to be the only difference from my own reality. That reality’s Alison never had cancer, never died while her husband slept, never left her husband all alone for these two years.

I am going to be with Alison. Life without her has been insufferable, and I can bear the quiet of this house no longer. Tonight, I shall use my brother’s government credentials to enter the Reality Shifting Facility. I shall bring my gun, and take my side by my wife, even if I have to shoot my self in the face.
