Joseph's death was a blow for Achu. Everyone knows that it would happen. But when it happened, when he really left us, we didn't know what to do. Achu was more close to him. And his death changed her a lot. All her charm was gone like someone took away her better part. She was in a great deal of shock. The days were difficult for me, but I'm her mom. I need to do something for her. Something that could make my kid cheerful again. That's when one of my friends told me to go on a trip with her. Two women's day out, to heal ourselves. It seemed fine for me. At least, I have to do it for my Achu. Vagamon would be nice, I thought. A place where nature can be experienced at its best. "Try camping in Vagamon for the night. It would be nice. Achu will love it" told my friend. And on a fine Tuesday morning, 22 days after Joseph's death, I and Achu started off for a trip to Vagamon.
OUT TO VAGAMON
We didn't talk much on our way to Vagamon. Talking has turned out to be a ferocious task nowadays. The silence seemed peaceful.
