Mirror in hand, face on it

Inner Turmoil

In a very short story, the author manages to deal with the bitterness of the past, suffering pf the present and a promise for the future.

Everything was normal but then he read something. Something that forced him to go into a state of nostalgia.

And then he tapped on the Google Photos gallery on his phone, scrolled down to the year 2017 and paused when at Basanti’s photograph. His heartbeats suddenly sped up, and his mood changed from nostalgia to anxiety.

He felt helpless. But his acceptance of the past was trying to overcome his helplessness and just then he looked into the mirror. He saw a face staring back at him and right then and there he decided on something.

He decided to never see that face again in his life. And so he carved a beautiful peace on the face in the mirror.
