Short Story: Just One Thing

Here is my new short story. Hope you guys enjoy reading it.

I wrote this story in two hours and made a few edits before publishing it. This work is special to me because it is nice and tight. Every feeling emerging between the lines is implicit; there is no explicit description of the emotions felt by the characters. Also there is a mild suspense about the "thing", which reveals itself in the end. Hence, it can be called as a romantic-suspense story. This is also my shortest story I have ever written. At last, it is based on a true event which happened in my life three years ago.

Don't Look Back

Don't Look Back

I said, "Don't look back,"
But my son kept walking
With his head turned back
And a finger in his mouth.

Then he stumbled over a rock
And nearly fell to the ground.
"Look ahead, my son!"
I cautioned him again.
Then he turned his head
To look forward
And suddenly I realized
The truth in those words.
