I don’t want to pick up the phone. I’d rather run into Dad’s bedroom and curse into a pillow because he chose the wrong time to land himself in intensive care, or punch a wall because my mom marked me for an early death when she died giving birth to me. The phone rings for what’s got to be the thirtieth time, and I can’t avoid it any more than I can avoid what’s going down sometime today. I slide my laptop off my crossed legs and get up from my bed, swaying to the side, feeling really faint.

About – They Both Die At End PDF Book By Adam Silvera
I’m like a zombie moving toward my desk, slow and walking-dead. The caller ID reads DEATH-CAST, of course. I’m shaking but manage to press Talk. I don’t say anything. I’m not sure what to say. I just breathe because I have fewer than twenty-eight thousand breaths left in me— the average number of breaths a nondying person takes per day—and I might as well use them up while I can. “Hello, I’m calling from Death-Cast. I’m Andrea. You there, Timothy?” Timothy. My name isn’t Timothy. “You’ve got the wrong person,” I tell Andrea.
My heart settles down, even though I feel for this Timothy person. I truly do. “My name is Mateo.” I got the name from my father and he wants me to pass it down eventually. Now I can, if having a kid is a thing that happens for me. Computer keys are tapping on her end, probably correcting the entry or something in her database. “Oh, apologies. Timothy is the gentleman I just got off the phone with; he didn’t take the news very well, poor thing. You’re Mateo Torrez, right?” And just like that, my last hope is obliterated. “Mateo, kindly confirm this is indeed you.

I’m afraid I have many other calls to make tonight.” I always imagined my herald—their official name, not mine—would sound sympathetic and ease me into this news, maybe even harp on how it’s especially tragic because I’m so young. To be honest, I would’ve been okay with her being chipper, telling me how I should have fun and make the most of the day since I at least know what’s going to happen. They Both Die At End PDF Book By Adam Silvera That way I’m not stuck at home starting onethousand-piece puzzles I’ll never finish or masturbating because sex with an actual person scares me. But this herald makes me feel like I should stop wasting her time because, unlike me, she has so much of it. “Okay. Mateo’s me. I’m Mateo.” “Mateo, I regret to inform you that sometime in the next twenty-four hours you’ll be meeting an untimely death.
And while there isn’t anything we can do to suspend that, you still have a chance to live.” The herald goes on about how life isn’t always fair, then lists some events I could participate in today. I shouldn’t be mad at her, but it’s obvious she’s bored reciting these lines that have been burned into memory from telling hundreds, maybe thousands, about how they’ll soon be dead. They Both Die At End PDF Book By Adam Silvera She has no sympathy to offer me. She’s probably filing her nails or playing tic-tac-toe against herself as she talks to me. On CountDowners, Deckers post entries about everything from their phone call to how they’re spending their End Day.
It’s basically Twitter for Deckers. I’ve read tons of feeds where Deckers admitted to asking their heralds how they would die, but it’s basic knowledge that those specifics aren’t available to anyone, not even former President Reynolds, who tried to hide from Death in an underground bunker four years ago and was assassinated by one of his own secret service agents. They Both Die At End PDF Book By Adam Silvera Death-Cast can only provide a date for when someone is going to die, but not the exact minute or how it’ll happen. “. . . Do you understand all of this?” “Yeah.” “Log on to death-cast.com and fill out any special requests you may have for your funeral in addition to the inscription you’d like engraved on your headstone. Or perhaps you would like to be cremated, in which case . . .” I’ve only ever been to one funeral. My grandmother died when I was seven, and at her funeral I threw a tantrum because she wasn’t waking up.
Fast-forward five years when Death-Cast came into the picture and suddenly everyone was awake at their own funerals. Having the chance to say goodbye before you die is an incredible opportunity, but isn’t that time better spent actually living? Maybe I would feel differently if I could count on people showing up to my funeral. If I had more friends than I do fingers. “And Timothy, on behalf of everyone here at Death-Cast, we are so sorry to lose you.
Live this day to the fullest, okay?” “I’m Mateo.” “Sorry about that, Mateo. I’m mortified. It’s been a long day and these calls can be so stressful and—” I hang up, which is rude, I know. I know. They Both Die At End PDF Book By Adam Silvera But I can’t listen to someone tell me what a stressful day she’s been having when I might drop dead in the next hour, or even the next ten minutes: I could choke on a cough drop; I could leave my apartment to do something with myself and fall down the stairs and snap my neck before I even make it outside; someone could break in and murder me. The only thing I can confidently rule out is dying of old age. I sink to the floor, on my knees.

It’s all ending today and there is absolutely nothing I can do about it. I can’t journey across dragon-infested lands to retrieve scepters that can halt death. I can’t hop onto a flying carpet in search of a genie to grant my wish for a full and simple life. I could maybe find some mad scientist to cryogenically freeze me, but chances are I’d die in the middle of that wacky experiment. Death is inevitable for everyone and it’s absolute for me today.
The list of people I will miss, if the dead can miss anyone, is so short I shouldn’t even call it a list: there’s Dad, for doing his best; my best friend, Lidia, not only for not ignoring me in the hallways, but for actually sitting down across from me in lunch, partnering with me in earth science, and talking to me about how she wants to become an environmentalist who will save the world and I can repay her by living in it. And that’s it.
