Murdered In 90 Seconds

We claim that our lives solely depend on what we decide and do everyday. Yet, we do not and will never know when and how our lives will end. It's true that no matter how hard we try to figure it out, there's no way we can tell the exact date and condition of our death. When the day comes to put an end to our so-called 'lives', that's it. No warnings, no clues at all.

The following incident is based on a true story. It happens in just about 90 seconds.

The first 30 seconds...

The boy is sitting in front of his computer table. Then suddenly he looks at his surroundings. The room is hot, so he opens the door and breathes in the cooler air. He closes his eyes for a second and listens to the sounds made by the cats, the people and the lizards.

The next 30 seconds...

He checks out the letter on the book shelf; it's the internet bill. He doesn't care and sits again at the computer table. He clicks on the movie folder, trying to decide on which movie to watch. He keeps looking and looking. Then he hears a sound. A horrible yet familiar sound that he knows so certainly.

The last 30 seconds...

He goes out of the room and sees his noisy nephew entering the house shouting and singing only-God-knows songs! The sense of privacy immediately slips away from his mind. He doesn't want to wait. He quickly pulls back into his room and shuts the door with all the might he possesses. Splash! And a small lizard bloodily flattened within the space between the door and the connected wall. There goes the life of a lizard, just like that.

On average, one lizard dies in every month, amazingly in the very same way.
