There are many ways in which fate plays cruelly with the most blessed of people. Here is the story of a beautiful and cheerful 12-year-old Athena Orchard who fell prey to fate for no reason at all. With a lump on her head, of which she didn't think much, she collapsed in her kitchen one day and what the doctors told the girl's family was utterly devastating.
Days after her death, Athena's father found something behind her mirror while sorting her things. In his own words "It was heart-breaking."
Athena had written a heart-wrenching note about what she thought of her life and the condition she had been put in by fate.
Athena's mother says they're keeping the mirror as long as they are alive. "It is a part of her we can keep in the house, it will always be in her room. . . Just reading her words felt like she was still here with us.." she says.
