I’ve been told she’s just like me. The same wavy hair, heads as round as cantaloupes, almond shaped eyes oozing with chocolate brownness, concave noses, dimpled chins, oval faces.

  1. wow! this is hard hitting ! i didn’t see this coming, and nor did he; was this intentional? the gun was under lock and key so I suppose it was 🙁 how horrible !

  2. Wow, thanks for so creatively exposing the idiocy of guns. As I said on the site where I first read this, why do we even play with toy guns? Do we play with toy guillotines and electric chairs?

    • Stupidity seems to be appealing to many. Weapons and people don’t mix well. Thanks for your wise words, Geoff.

  3. My God what an ending, shocking! But I didn’t expect anything less shocking from your creative pen.

  4. The atmosphere of impending doom was palpable right from the very start of this piece! This is a remarkable thing to achieve in this short format! Wow! You are awesome at this, Terveen!👍🏼😮

  5. Wow, that’s such a surprise ending. I get it she’s his daughter, but I didn’t expect the sad ending. Just imagine how fragile we are–one little bullet will finish it all. I mean all the anguish, all the hopes, and all the turmoils.

    • It’s a very high price to pay for carelessly playing with danger. Guns (toy or real) are no one’s friends. Thanks so much.
