When It Breaks More Than It Should

As if the world is going to collapse the man screams and yells furiously towards an old woman. Full of wrath and malice he says, "I only asked you not to touch it, the simplest thing to do on this f**king Earth, just one thing, just f**king one thing, and you couldn't even f**king do it!"

A crystal-made vase worth hundreds of dollars is seen lying on the floor...in pieces.

The woman stays still. Her eyes are looking down to those shiny little pieces, her tears are dropping heavily like the raining skies, and her body doesn't want to listen to her deep inner voice saying, "Don't tremble, please."

"This f**king vase isn't mine, you dirty old woman! It's worth half of my salary and you just f**king killed it! What am I supposed to do, huh!!? Sell you and use the money to pay it? You're not even close to that amount! Damn it!" So he sits down on the couch. He puts his hands over his red face. "Damn it! Damn it! Damn it!"

30 years back, a young little kid accidentally put down a mirror onto one wrong place. The mirror fell down on a table with an oil lamp on it. It hit the lamp. The inside liquid splashed itself right on the kitchen floor and the fire followed. Both of them burned the whole house down. But thank God, none was injured.

The mother held her son tightly. While trembling in fear the son whispered, "I'm sorry, mom. I didn't mean to make it fall..."

The mother smiled. She said, "Don't worry. I will forgive you now so that later in the future when you've become a fine young man while I'm an old lady who touches your stuff, you will forgive me too. Is that a deal?" The son nodded with a smile to prove her words had comforted him.

But the promise has been forgotten. The fully fledged young man who was once a kid has totally ignored it. He shows his anger more than he should, and the mother smiles more than she could.

"I'm sorry, son. I didn't mean to make it fall..."

And the son stares at his mother, hatefully.
