Madam Elly arrived early
Parked her car nearby the abbey
Then walked to the school's alley
She had to stop for a moment
'cause she's now in her fifties,
and she need to breathe
so she took a breath, one so deep;
The air was a crispy breeze,
and she thanked God for it.
Then, she headed to her office.
As she passed the pantry,
she saw Ali
under the kitchen sink.
She approached him,
asked him how he's doing
and why he's down on his knees.
Then, she noticed
the droplets of tears in his fist,
ones from a weeping.
She asked him
the cause of him
to despair like this.
With trembling lips,
he said that morning,
his parents drove him.
He paused and weep,
shrieked in agony,
and continue the story.
He said they were in a hurry
as they got places to be.
He said in car, they were laughing
'cause his dad is funny.
He said in laughs, they were hugging
'cause his mom is loving.
He said it was one minute before thirty,
when a lorry came crashing in,
and murdered his only family,
with full of cruelty,
And he stopped the story
to cry heavily.
In cries, there was crimson red on their seats,
and he screamed loudly, frantically, helplessly, hoping
that someone would be helping.
But it was too early,
and there was nobody,
not a thing.
And he drained his energy
panicking on the whole tragic scene.
After the tragedy,
he walked wearily to the school's alley
'cause he don't know where else to be.
He cried and said he's sorry
and Madam Elly could do nothing,
but hugged him lovingly.
She then dialled the police
to tell them about the tragedy.
After that, she said to Ali
to not be worry, to not be sorry,
as his arrival was still early.
So, she brought him to his classroom seat
and she smiled at him
and said "you're a strong boy Ali".
And then, she continued her duty
teaching him his favourite subject, Mathematics,
like how teachers did,
even though she only teach
even though that day was
on a school break
and Ali's heart
no longer have a beat.
But Madam Elly,
being the teacher that she is,
continued doing her duty
no matter who it is,
alive or no longer breathe.

This is based on a true event experienced by someone I know. Haunting and chilling.
