The Time Lane

Info

Dec 31st 2017,

Confused, I stand at the crossroads. Suddenly two strangers greeted me and stood beside me. The one dressed in red said "I am your past" and the other one dressed in white said "I am your past's greatest foe, your future".
"If you don't mind me asking why you both have an evil aura. "

"It's upto you to decide whom we are" ,said the white man.
"Hmm so you are angel of my future and he is demon of my past", and I laughed. They also smirked at my comment.

"So you guys are enemies so why don't you kill each other", I asked them hoping for an interesting answer.

"We are separated by an invisible barrier, that is, your present", the demon replied.

"So how you fight", I asked curiously.

"We are a bunch of old gamblers. You are a unique player in this time Lane so we both are betting on you", the angel replied.

"So you are no angel", I said with a sarcastic laugh.

"All that glitters  not gold, my friend" the angel said.

"You said I am a unique player of this time lane. In which sort of way I am different", I asked.

"Look back " both said in unison.

As I turned back back I saw my time Lane. The lane was equally covered in red and white.

"The red colour denotes my dominance and the white one his dominance. The red colour denotes the decision that will affect your future in a wrong way while white one will affect in the right way", the demon said.

"We are betting on you that what will be the colour of time Lane when you die", the angel said.

"You bunch of gamblers. Let's make a bet. Do whatever you want next year to remove my smile from my face. Let's meet at 31st December 2018 and see who wins. If you win I will do whatever you want and if I win you both will do as I say", I said to the demon and angel in disguise.

"Done. A little advice to you, take the path to left", said the demon and he left.

"Done. A little advice to you, take the path to right", said the angel and he left.

"Damn you both. I am gonna go straight", I said to myself and smiled.

Dec 31st 2018,

Again I was at crossroads but this time sitting on a wheelchair waiting for them. Thinking about my past and smiling to myself. Lost in thoughts, my closest acquaintances finally arrived.

"You are late, my friends", I said to them.

"We lost the bet. We took away your precious ones. We took away your health. Look at you, you can't even walk. We took almost everything you had but you are still smiling. How even is that possible", both said in unison.

"Oh you old gamblers. The creator of this universe has gifted me with a weapon which you can't take away. My mindset is my weapon", I laughed.

"So do you remember the bet", I asked.

"Yeah we remember", they said.

Once I looked back and saw the 2017 me. What would he think of me? He would probably be proud of me. Smiling at the thought I waved to him and he waved back with a smile.

"So my wish is that all the years that is going to come should be perfect for me. In short my time Lane should be perfectly white", and I laughed and laughed and laughed.

"Done" said the demon and left.
"Done" said the angel and left.

This time I wasn't confused about which way to go. I laughed and dragged my chair straight.
