Kevin’s parents love him. All parents love their children but Kevin’s parents are different. They are the kind of parents who have the picture of their child in their wallet and show it to people in their first meeting. When Kevin was born his mother decided to leave all her other goals and set herself a new one: Taking care of Kevin. She quit her job and started reading every single book about parenting. She even joined parenting forums to get advice from other moms. Although, after some time she ended up giving advice to everyone. Maybe this was what encouraged her to start a blog about parenting. Once, in her blog she wrote: ‘when you become a mother your child is your life.’
Everything was going well for the Watson family (Watson is Kevin’s surname). Not only they were living a happy life but they were also a source of inspiration for other families. Supported by a strong father and a loving mom, Kevin was becoming more successful day by day and then one day he just died. On his way back from school, he was hit by a car and died. I know. It wasn’t nice or professional of me to suddenly say he died. But the thing is this is exactly how it happened, sudden and without preparation. That morning, like any other day, Kevin’s mom escorted him to the door, kissed his forehead and wished him good luck. Kevin told her he loved her and walked away and never came back.
The next few months was spent in grief for his parents. Everything was dull and lifeless. Everywhere they looked they would see memories of Kevin. Kevin’s mom had quit her job when he was born and now his father quit his job after his death. They rarely went out of the house. His mom couldn’t even check her blog. The only reason for that blog was no longer alive. When she logged in to her blog to deactivate it there were loads of unread comments. But there was only one which drew her attention. It said: ‘love whoever you want as much as you want just know one day you will be separated. ‘
