Random stories: Today's Tomorrow

Adapted from movie "the edge of tomorrow"

Cory is cursed. He wakes up every morning to the same old day. Today is the day he got promoted, and went home with news of promotion when his wife told him she is pregnant! This is what they always wanted... Until he did the most stupid thing when he saw a shooting star and said to the night sky that he wished every day is like this. 

Now, he lived this day for almost a month now, but the shooting star is the only thing didn't reappear. It is always the same old news, same old congratulation from colleagues.

Today was different though. His wife felt that his husband was not genuinely happy about the prenancy. She sulked and questioned him. "Whatever!! It's not like ... There is going to be a difference!" Cory retorted. "What do you mean!" The wife said in shock. Cory went to the bed, "just let me sleep, I had enough of this everyday!" His wife felt betrayed and hurted.

----------

Serene is really glad she found a new gift. She lied on the patient bed, her loved ones beside her. His husband hold her hand and choked with tears, "why? Why? Why is our time together so short?" She struggled as she said these words, as the respirator makes it difficult to be heard and also to speak:" Today is longer than you think. Do not be upset, I am ....." She choked in pain. Her parents ask her to stop and rest. She smiled. There is always tomorrow. "Don't worry... About me... I am at peace... I am
Happy" Her loved ones marvel at serene strength. The doctor has told them she cannot get past tonight. They felt ashamed it is Serene comforting her. Her dad is the first to smile, "yes, serene is right, let's us enjoy each others' company tonight."

Serene saw the shooting star again, she smiled and say:"Thank you, I am contented, even if tonight is the last night, I am ready."

She got her wish tonight... It was her last night, but Cory will have many more.....

  1. Hello SI,

    Interesting story! I'm never good at fables but I get the idea that come what may, good or bad, we should accept it and move on in life.

  3. Hello SRSI,

    Glad u like it. One of the push factors in the story is how I feel the seemingly more "fortunate" are also the ones that grumble the most...
