When flopping a negative, you are interfering with forces in the universe that you may not want to disturb. As you know there is a parallel universe that is co-existing with this one, and in that universe that boy actually went in that direction. Now you have made him go that direction in our universe as well.
Because of you, that boy and everything in that picture, has been forever doomed to live with only one choice in their life instead of many.
I hope you are ready for the consequences of playing God.
