The Other Side Of Change – by Hugh W. Roberts
Having looked after her sick mother for the last fifty years, Shanaya looked forward to the change in life she’d often craved.
Caring for her mother had taken its toll on her. She’d missed out on making friends, having somebody she could call her lover, but most of all, having the company of different people.
Standing up, Shanaya looked change directly in the eyes and waited for it to reveal itself.
“You have been charged with the first-degree murder of Evonne Simmons, your mother. I sentence you to life imprisonment, Ms Simmons. Take the prisoner down,” declared the judge.
