A Blessing in Disguise.


I had too many things on my mind that day.

But that’s an excuse. What I did could’ve had serious repercussions.

It was plain bad luck that I had moved a few meters ahead and he saw me.

But then he was right.

I am usually so responsible.

But I was guilty, after all in life you can’t undo a mistake.

It was just that I hadn’t strapped little Sia into a car seat.

But I will never forget the lesson I learnt when the judge made me write a mock obituary for the child. Truly a blessing in disguise.


This is a fiction written for Write Tribe’s 100 Words on Saturday Prompt: A Blessing in Disguise

    • Oh yes, negligent driving can have serious impact. We usually crib about using a seat belt but have seen how wearing it has lessened the impact of the injuries during an accident! Loved your take on the prompt, Kajal 🙂

    • I heard about this sentence in Boston Legal. I guess, this lesson that mother would never ever forget! Thanks T, glad you liked this prompt and loved your story too 🙂
