Forlorn grandmother sitting in a chair at old age home, suddenly smiles, visualizing her two grandchildren, a boy and a girl playing their favorite game ‘ Mermaids in trouble’.
They took all the cushions and hid under them, as if trapped inside the sea reefs, while she, forced by them to join the game, wearing a sea diver’s mask pretended to save them.
Their favorite part was her feigning that the damn mask obstructed her view, run here and there clumsily and fall on them; they will roll over each other on the floor laughing hysterically.
How she longs for those days.
