He had lived a good life of honesty and honor but for Stevos Jerolotis this was not enough. He was a man that needed to know that he was going to end up in heaven and not hell. So at the age of eighteen he decide to commit his life to God and from this point on until his last dying breath he lived his life by the word of the bible, because for Stevos this was the only guaranteed path to eternal life. But near the end of his life Stevos was involved in a serious car accident where his legs were crushed. There was nothing the doctors could do to save his legs so at the age of 60 he had both of them amputated and lived the rest of his life in misery. During this time of misery he experienced great pain in his stubs which originated from near the top of his thighs. Doctors gave him intense pain killers, something he called pumpkin pills because they were orange and so hard to swallow because of their size. Over a two month period he became addicted to the painkillers and was popping them like candy and soon the doctor stopped prescribing them to Stevos who turned to the streets to supplement his shortfall of painkillers. Within a couple of months he could no longer pay for the drugs and the dealers came to collect their debts. Stevos begged for mercy and pleaded with them to give him another week to find the money. But the underworld was unforgiving and the dealer's henchmen sawed off both of his arms.
A day later he realized that he would have stubs for both his arms and legs and was admitted into a special hospital. It was in this hospital that he increased his relationship with God which helped yield the pain from his missing limbs. After spending nearly a year in the hospital Stevos contracted a virus that infected his stubs which in turn caused his whole body to turn blue with infection. There was nothing the doctors could do as Stevos simply rotted away. A week later he died looking like a charred man.
His funeral was held and the attendance was large, but because of the morbid condition of his body it was a closed casket affair. Shortly after the church service Stevos was interred into the ground. He made himself comfortable in the casket for the long wait ahead of him, until the return of Christ.
There in his casket he rested in peace, free from earthly pains as he eagerly waited to be resurrected by the Lord Jesus Christ. Then one day Christ returned and Stevos rose from his grave feeling free of pain and waves of euphoria splashed over him. This was what he had wanted his whole life, this was the way he had wanted to feel.
There he was in euphoria feeling no more pain as he crawled along the earth on his stubs.
