My brain fuse was blown off the moment I saw his medical report.
My dearest friend, so young, so disciplined, so pure hearted, perfect, always ready to help others, has just 6 more months to live.
‘There may be some mistake’
No it’s true, he started crying bitterly.
I fumbled with all the switches in my brain to cheer him and me.
‘What a coincident!’ I started laughing,’ I too am diagnosed with it and have 5 more months to live.
He forgot about his illness. ‘So what shall we do?’
‘Just enjoy life, go for world tour or whatever we can afford.’
He smiled; ‘Okay I’m going to make arrangements.’
Small lie to cheer someone a sin?
