End of trip - Antonio Jesús Cruz

He crawls with great effort inside the narrow tunnel flooded by a viscous and lukewarm liquid.
Despite that, he advances. A strange exterior force pushes him alternately forward and backwards. His heart flutters excited and his muscles, small but strong and flex, work to the maximum.
A long instant and he feels an explosion. His eyes are hurt by the light.
While a rending cry escapes from his throat and his lungs inhale new air, a woman shouts: "a boy has been born".
