Short Story: Aashirya’s last wish

Her mother's eyes were brimming with tears, she was too choked to speak as she gave in to her daughter's wish. Her hands trembled as she applied blush to her daughter's dry cheeks. After 45 minutes, Aashirya slowly removed her mobile phone, took a selfie, added the hashtag, #nofilter and posted it on Instagram.  "Watch out Maa, this one is going to be the best picture with the maximum likes & comments. My account will explode with the traction!" she attempted to laugh, but wheezed and coughed instead. Will Aashirya's last wish come true?
