[Death miniatures series stories]

Death miniatures are fictional ultra-small stories related to death. The goal is to draw out emotions and make the reader think more about death, which is the only thing that we keep on avoiding, even though it is defining our life and behavior from the moment we are born till the day we draw our last breath…

She always loved this toy.

From the moment that she saw it she could never sleep without it.

She would be so happy now.

Holding it in her small little hands.

A small fluffy octopus with seven arms.

We had laughed so much with that.

Look at her now.

With the sevenctopus again in her tiny arms…

A touch on my shoulder.

It was time.

I gave her a kiss.

(Sleep tight my child)

The tears rising.

But as the coffin was closing…

I could still see the toy.

And for a moment.

Without knowing why or how.

I just smiled.

(Oh, she loves this toy!)
