“Mummy. What happened?” Timi asked entering her mother’s room. Rubbing her eyes, she added “I heard you scream, mum. Is everything alright?”
“Yes dear. I’m fine.” Timi’s mother replied slowly, her eyes glistening. Drawing Timi closer to her in an embrace, she whispered “Everything is going to be alright.”
“Can I sleep with you tonight, mummy? I’m disturb.” Timi asked.
“Of course, Timi. Come.” Her mother replied.
Although they both slept together that night, only one of them woke up the next day. Timi’s mother was found, cold and still, lying on the bed by her daughter the next morning.
