Flash of a Second

Author: Rifka Bose /

All it takes is a flash of a second sometimes to change someone’s life over….

Friday the 13th is supposed to be a doomed day – so they say – but “she” never believed in all this. While  “she” was pottering away doing her usual chores “she” heard a thud. “She” rushed to the living room and there “she” saw this almost lifeless mass on the floor. “She” looked closely at the face of her mother and started shaking her about. Thankfully in sometime the lifelessness passed but what was left behind was a spiritless, lifeless human being whose soul was so badly tattered that no amount of comforting or warmth could revive this poor soul.

As “she” stood over this woman – her mother – “she” felt a chill run through her spine. “She” could see small vignettes of the road ahead.  Watching a parent deteriorate in front of one’s own eyes is not only heart wrenching for the child but also crushes the spirit of the parent.



“She” soon realized, the haunting fear had finally become a reality. Life changed in a flash of a second.
