June’s Pov

“You guys forced me to get a nurse, you forced me to go out yesterday and you still want to force me to go to the city to see a doctor. Can’t I make a decision on my own in this place? I might be blind but my brain cells are working perfectly. You people should let me make my own decision. I’m not going anywhere and that is final” Never in my life have I seen Harry this angry about something and to say I’m surprised is an understatement. I folded my hands just below my chest looking at him screaming his lungs out as if I’m not the only person he’s talking to right now and seeing it like this is really not a good sight.

“Harry, maybe you need me to remind you that I’m the only person here right now” humor. It sure wasn’t affecting him. I had asked about what the phone call was all about and after ten minutes of asking over and over again, he finally succumbed. Immediately I advised him to go for the tests, he flipped and here we are.

“I don’t care if it’s the whole world right now or just you” he replied bluntly.

“You don’t have to pass aggression at me, I’m only advising you about the best thing to do. This is the best option for you, Harry. If they forced you to get a nurse, that’s none of my business and if I forced you out the other day, it was for the best and I know you didn’t regret it and if I’m advising you to go to the city, it is for your own good Harry” I said trying not to be harsh with my words.

“You’re not advising me to go, June. You’re forcing me to go to the city for the test”

“Why would I force you? It’s not even my eyes Harry, it’s yours” Immediately I said those words, I regretted it. He didn’t say anything but we both remained silent for a while before I decided to break the silence.

“Im sorry; I didn’t mean it that way. All I’m trying to say is, if you get your eyes back, we won’t be using it together. It’s all for your own good and I think you should do just that because it’s for your own good” I said

“It’s still the same thing but just a less harsh” I smiled at his words. “You need to understand me here, June. Getting my sight back will do me no good, it’ll always remind me of everything I’ve lost so far” I knew something more than his eyes happened but I just didn’t know how to ask him or Veronica about what had happened. I just want to stay out of his business as long as he stays out of mine. We all have our own demons.

“Are you still not reminded of all you lost now? What difference does it make if you regain your sight or not? We’re not talking about your memories here. All that happened is in your head not your heart, Harry. If you want to get back on track with life, you need to let go and move on while holding on to your best memories as much as you can” I explained to him.

“I’m still not going, no matter what you say, I’m not going” he replied firmly and I was getting frustrated already.

“Why are you so stubborn, Harry?” I slumped against the wall and sat on the floor looking at him and trying to read him but I couldn’t get anything. He was emotionless,, almost as stiff as a wood. Anything that happened to this guy really hit him hard.

“Harry, I totally……..” I was about to use another tactics when Veronica came in to ask me what was going on, I think our loud voices got their attention from the shop.

“What’s going on here?” she asked in a hushed voice as if we were in the *quiet place* movie.

“It’s Harry”

“You don’t have the right to tell her about anything” he cautioned me

“Anything like what?” Veronica asked

“They deserve to know what’s going on” I argued

“Know what?’ 

“Learn to shut your trap June” what! He just called my mouth a trap. That’s it.

“The doctors want him to come to the city for some tests so they’ll be able to schedule his surgery and work his eyes because they believe he can see again” I said in one breath and I could feel him giving me a stink eye but I don’t care.

“OMG, I can’t believe this, Harry is getting his sight back. Mom!” Veronica ran out of the room to call her mom from the shop.

Veronica and their mom walked into the room few minutes later grinning from ear to ear about the news that they just heard.

“Is it true Harry?” Their mum asked and he nodded before he broke the news to them by himself, that he’s not going. “Nonsense, you’re definitely going son, you need to get your sight back” As much as I trusted their mom to be a no nonsense person, she didn’t disappoint. She’s just as stubborn as Harry himself.

“Mom, I don’t want to go. This is my decision and I’m not going back on that”

“If Ava is here now and right now, what do you think she’ll want you to do?” I watch as Harry grew silent from the question making me wonder who Ava was. I guess it’s not my business. “You need to do this for them, Harry. They’ll want you to go to the city and get your eyes done” she told him lovingly and I couldn’t help the tears gathering in my eyes.

“What if I really don’t want to?” he asked his mom

“I know you want to as much as we all do but you’re just scared of moving on. If you really want to move on like you told me, going to the city for those tests is the first step and the first step is always the Important one darling” I stood up to leave the room and give them the privacy that they need because I know they’re holding back on some things because of me.

“I need to get some stuffs at the store, I’ll be right back” I announced 

“June!” Harry called and I stopped in my tracks.

“For telling them about this, you sure do owe me something” I laughed and asked him what that was.

“What you were thinking about that day that you refused to tell me, that’s the price you get to pay for what you did” he didn’t even try to think about his mom and sister who were there with us.

I smiled and I nodded “I’ll tell you once you get back from the hospital”

“Yet, another blackmail” he announced like we all didn’t know.
