Some People Like To Get Death Over And Done With

(I am ten. My grandfather has cancer, and is dying. I am facing the true scope of mortality for the first time, and am deeply upset. One night, I stay up sobbing because I’m so terrified of death. My mother is trying her best to comfort me, but it’s not really working. She’s just saying anything that pops into her head at this point.)

Mom: “Sweetie, it’s okay! It doesn’t happen until the very end of your life!”

Me: “Oh. Okay.”

(I then calmly lay down and went to sleep.)
