Killing another human being is not an easy task on the psychological point of view. You have to have guts to do it. You have to have a very strong motive to carry out the killing. But even if you have a very strong motive you still think twice before doing it. But what about if the human being you plan to kill is your father? What strong motives (if any, indeed) can justify the murder of one’s own father? Find out on this short story why a young boy kills his own father and how nature punished him for his crime.
