About this submission

This is a story exploring the expression of grief. It narrates a mother who visits the site of her daughter's passing and bids her final goodbye. I've made a vow to myself that I would never tell any stories of the living without a shadow of death, for death and grief have been the haunting for me ever since the a young age. Witnessing the death of my grandma due to an accident and the death of my unborn sister due to the One-Child policy in China, I feel the urge to tell the stories of the aftermath.
