The best 30 seconds of my life

The best 30 seconds of my life

A Story by jayanth

everyone rewinds their life on things which we should have done and love the most at some point . Who knows whether you will be alive or not after that .

                             THE BEST 30 SECONDS OF MY LIFE

daddy take me to the carnival please ‘ , the first thing I thought about . the life of a coastal guard is not easy . I remember everything that I’ll miss the most , FAMILY .  My 5 year old brave daughter and of course with the playfulness is always a joy to watch and my 10 year old son is who I’m very proud of , they wouldn’t know that I’ve noticed them so much , but the way he takes care of his sister reminds me of my siblings and my parents .

It was the other way around here , I was the youngest among the 5 of us , getting pampered by all 6 of them shouldn’t be surprising , oh the 6 of them includes my parents in it . I love them so much and speaking of love ,  my wife appears .

I was happy , I always wanted this . She should be the last thing I should think about . I always admired her , the way she balanced work and home which I’ve never done , and the love from her towards me hasn’t reduced a bit since the beginning  . She was the best thing that has ever happened in my life .

I have never thought about them ,with this love ,with this heart as I wish I could tell them , how much I love them . I felt the bullet doing its job in my body , well I said it before , life of a coastal guard is never an easy task, as I stare at the sky with the final smile and the final thought of thanking god for ‘THE BEST 30 SECONDS OF MY LIFE ‘.

First thing to say, you wrote the story title 3 times and I guess one time would be enough

And I have a feeling that you could've continued writing about this, but anyway I liked it.

You're good with words tho, keep writing, my friend!
