She was my mother and protector. Her life before me a mystery. She refused to reopen that Pandora's box. She dropped few hints here and there. I longed for the whole truth though. I assume everything

changed the moment that I was born. It was like she experienced a great awakening. I was her only hope. Her life didn't have a purpose or meaning without me. I shaped the direction of her future. Only

death, my sacrifice could liberate her.
