Cologne, Germany

The half-naked man

by Nico No


I was walking home from a birthday party late at night. I crossed the Rhein River over the Hohenzollern-Bridge when I saw a man standing on the edge of the bridge half-naked. Then he jumped into the darkness. I heard a big splash. I immediately ran to the spot where he jumped off. I saw him swimming towards the bank.


I screamed at him: “Hey dude, are you alright?”

He screamed back: “I´m fine. Thanks!”

I shouted: “Are you fucking crazy?

He replied: “What are you trying to say?”

I asked: “Why did you do that?”

He answered: “I just wanna feel my life! It´s fun!”
