Flash Fiction- Seeing Yourself In Your Children

Seeing Yourself In Your Children

Samantha and her kids sat in an impromptu circle in the backyard discussing deep topics on life. It started out as a simple question of if they thought God really existed and then expanded.

“What if we are already in the afterlife?” her 11 year old son asked.

“But is this heaven or hell?” asked her 8 year old daughter.

“Maybe it is both.” 

In that moment, Samantha could see herself in her children. Their eyes may be brown instead of blue, but they were definitely seeing life through the same eyes. She wanted this conversation to last forever.
