Echoes of the past Episode 1


No matter what you do in life, always know that life itself isn’t a bed of roses and doesn’t always go as planned. Sometimes we don’t deserve what life throws at us but we either learn to accept it or to change it…

It was a beautiful Monday morning. The sun had risen and it’s ultraviolet rays made the window panes shine brightly in it’s reflection. The curtains opened and behind it was a well furnished sitting room. Everything inside looked spick and span ranging from the tiled floor to the glass center table, etc.

Mrs Laura Scott sat on the couch looking very beautiful in her pink long sleeve gown. Her hair was covered with a black hair net and in her palm was the television remote she constantly used in changing the channel on the flat screen plasma television that hang at the far right end of the room.
