The next day, Jack was finally discharged and we headed home to the condo where Jonah, Gio, and of course, my very cute daughter Amy were waiting. As soon as I saw her, I quickly picked her up and hugged her tightly. I missed my daughter so much and I also felt that she missed me as the entire afternoon that day, she slept on my shoulder and cried whenever I would try to place her back in her crib. "Mars, how about you put Amy down first?” Jonah suggested while drinking coffee.Jack had excused himself earlier, telling all of us that he needed to do something quickly in the office. I told him he needed to take things slow first as he had only been discharged from the hospital but he just wouldn’t budge, saying it had something to do with his boss and his position too. Worried he might lose his job, I let him go but only with the condition that he would be home immediately. Because of that, I was left here with Amy, Jonah, and Gio. "Shh," I replied to Jonah.She took a sip from her
Jack and I couldn’t hide the truth anymore. We had already kept our relationship for too long and in the process, I failed to think about other people’s true feelings about it. Just like Jonah, with whom I should have been honest from the start. Jack was right when he said sooner or later, the people who knew us would know. It was just a matter of time. “There’s no rush. When it comes to these things, don’t think too much,” Jack told me while holding my hand. We were lying side by side on the hospital bed. According to the doctor, he still needed to stay for a few more days to fully recover. Just a few more check-ups and if they had good results, he could go home anytime then. I let out a sigh and glanced at our intertwined hands. When he said he didn’t want to let go of my hand earlier, I didn’t know it would be for this long. I smiled at the thought.Jack… He loves me a lot and I feel the same way about him. But, how far will this love take us?Before I could think any deeper, Ja
In a slow and weak voice and with a smile, he uttered, “... Mom… am I dreaming?"I shook my head and wiped the tears from my cheeks. "No. You're okay, Aki. You're not dreaming. You’re safe now, and alive… You’re alive, baby.."I grabbed his hand and squeezed it before I promptly turned around and said, "I'll just call the nurse."Before I could entirely break down and cry myself in front of Jack, I hurriedly went out and called the doctor and nurse.They both came quickly and did a check-up on Jack. It went faster than I thought, or perhaps I was too focused on Jack, seeing him well, and finally opened his eyes that I could barely put my attention on anyone else. After a few minutes, the doctor gave me a few instructions before they finally told Jack to stay and get well, and finally left. After discovering what happened to Jack and me, the local high officials gave us a private room. It wasn’t exactly as grand as most of the private hospitals had but it was neat and decent enough fo
Holding Jack's hand, I heard the speed of my heartbeat while in the ambulance. Just when we were about to lose hope, Jonah came with the police. Even Bon and Norman came back and helped us. Jack continued to be unconscious and was lying in front of me, some medical personnel on the side to continue supporting him and pressing to stop his bleeding. I couldn’t even feel my own body anymore. I was just looking at him, praying and praying he won’t slip away… He had lost too much blood… I tightened the grip on his hand, my own stomach feeling as though it was being twisted in excruciating tight knots. My head was spinning but I held in, my trembling fingers continued to hold onto his hand. My Jack’s hand. Time went on like years while Jack and I were in that ambulance. It was probably the longest trip I had ever been on but also the one I was too afraid to end. As soon as we reached the hospital, the medical staff told me to prepare for the worst.Because Jack’s heartbeats were faint.
"No…No… The tribe!" Mom exclaimed with a loud gasp as she moved and was about to run back to the village when I caught her hand in time. “Mom!” I held her. “Aki, t-they’re in danger…!” She exclaimed, her eyes round and full of worry. “They need our help, Aki!”I tightened my grip on her and pulled her to my side. Then I turned to Bon and Norman, waiting for them to speak. Even they were too shocked and seemingly unable to think what to do next. I looked up again, thinking… Then I stopped, finally realizing what it could be. Sh*t… Crista… Her men were the cause of this, weren’t they?!I gritted my teeth, the anger spreading throughout my chest. I turned to Bon and told him, “Head back to the tribe.”Bon seemed to snap back from his shock. He looked at me, clenching his hands into fists as he suppressed his emotions. “No… We can’t. Nana’s order was for us to take you two to the nearest town.” "Aki! We need to go back!" mom almost cried when she said that.I tried to think of the situ
I couldn’t walk for two hours according to mom and the healers who helped me change the bandage around my stomach. In truth, I was missing Amy too much. I could notice mom felt the same but she never mentioned nor complained. I could tell she did though, especially when I once caught her looking at a baby with her mother in the tribe. Mom probably didn’t want me to feel sad and worried more than I already was so she kept it all to herself… “I can do it,” I told her once we were on what seemed to be a waterfall that followed the creek near the village. Apparently, it was where the tribesmen went to catch a fish. We were with some other men earlier but they went hunting in the woods, something they shared they were good at. "Aki, the doctor said you need two more days to heal," mom said while caressing my arm before she let go and stood on the side. “Don’t force yourself too much, okay?”I sighed. “Mom, I’m not a kid anymore. Besides, I know you miss Amy too. And aunt Jonah and the
I nodded and stared at her while she busy taking care of me. I couldn’t help but smile at the sight. Since childhood, she has taken care of me too much and spoiled me rotten that I became obsessed with seeing her all the time, of needing the same treatment like this. Now that I became more mature and older, she was still doing the same thing. She was still the one who would and could take care of me tirelessly, in a heartbeat, without any unwillingness written on her face. Unable to control myself, I reached for mom’s hand. Her hands had been busy holding a damp cloth and were cleaning my body for a while. She stopped at my touch, her head tilting up to look at me. “Hmm? What is it? Do you need anything? Are you hungry, Aki?”"Yeah," I replied and tightened my grip on her hand even more.She looked at me and smiled. "All right, I'll get you something to eat. Stay here.”"I want you," I said mischievously.I stared at mom and smiled at her reaction. There was an obvious blush on her
I could hear the sound of water flowing steadily from a distance. Along with it was the sound of birds chirping, and the leaves rustling. Slowly, I tried to open my eyes as I felt the cold and slightly humid air brushing my skin. The first thing I saw was a ceiling… that was made of wood and hay…? I frowned, sensing the entire thing surrounding me was unfamiliar. I tried to move but felt an extreme throb shooting right through the side of my stomach. I gritted my teeth and struggled to get up. Then I stopped, suddenly feeling my heartbeat halting as I realized.Mom… Where is mom?I looked around, trying to find her from the bed. I didn’t care about my surroundings anymore. I forced myself to get up, chasing my breath while trying to sit up and further look around for any shadow of her. My heartbeat quickened as the events that happened slowly came back to me. I left mom to hide near a tree and I waited for any vehicle on that road… But Crista’s men arrived. And there were also those
