Life comes a full circle

Ramya had a new patient waiting for counseling; a mother who had lost her child in an accident.

 She looked deep into her eyes. They looked very familiar. 

A chill rose up Ramya’s spine as she remembered that fateful day.

“Car runs over a toddler. Driver absconding”, reported the papers.

 Ramya was behind the wheel. 


For the prompt 'She looked deep into her eyes' for marathon bloggers. This is a week long attempt at 55-ers.
