about this story

I had decided to go on a walk by myself today, to visit my grandmother's grave. She was very special to me, and someone I could tell anything to. It hurt me when she passed away. I started out the door down the dimly lit street at dawn. It had rained earlier that night. I was careful not to slip, but I just kept walking. The re wasn't any traffic to speak of, and the only sound I heard were my own footsteps, and occasionally I heard my own heartbeat. By early day, the sun was out and I made it to the edge of some woods. Inhabited by wildlife, I just followed my normal path. Incidentally, I encountered a full grown tiger in the woods. I stopped and stared as it went about its business. Staying calm, I continued on my way after I saw it pass with its breakfast in its mouth. It wasn't an uncommon experience where I live to see large cats like lions and tigers in this strange environment. Walking for about another hour, I made it to the other edge of the woods, appearing in the graveyard where my grandmother was put to rest. I quickly picked a flower and approached the grave where a couple of grown cats watched my moves. Kneeling down, I placed the flower and said a few words of encouragement and then turning around, I took a deep breath and started back.
