Your mother will die.
Your father will die.
And if the law of averages and life spans are to be believed, they will probably die before you.
Let this realization sink in.
Feel your gut clench and the sheer overpowering, sweat-inducing terror of this thought wash over you.
Shut your eyes really, really tight.
Feel the breath getting knocked out of you – try desperately to cover the crater that has magically appeared where your heart used to be.
Create a black hole. Make these thoughts disappear in it. Forget that you ever thought of this.
Recreate the invincibility of your parents.
Live in the delusion. Stay happy.
