Story Written by Quin Tully
“Anne your attention is needed in ward A14.”Callie told Anne who was removing her uniform, her day shift was over and she was going to Frank’s family house with him, they are having a family dinner with Frank’s family.
“I thought I’m done here?”she asked her,
“Well Doctor Williams need you there.”Callie said and left the changing room.
“Gosh.”she hit her head slightly and wore back her uniform,
“I need to call Frank since I won’t make it early.”she brought out her phone from her bag and called Frank,
“Hello Frank.”he picked up at the first ring,
“Frank, I’m sorry but I can’t make it early today,an emergency came up so I will be late.”she explained,he sighed.
“No problem Anne, I’ll reschedule everything,ill call mom and tell her we’ll be late.”he assured her,
“Okay thanks hun.”she told him she was about to hang up when he stopped her,
“You didn’t tell me you love me and didn’t call me my sweet name.”He said, she smiled,
“Okay,I love you my sugar fairy .”she said
“I love you too my fairy angel.”he replied,she kissed the phone and hung up.She kept her phone in her bag and went to the ward to check for the emergency.When she got there,the door was slightly opened.
“Doctor Williams.”she called the doctor who was facing the patient,
“Come in Anne.”the doctor said to her, she came in and close the door behind her.
“Mr Salvador,how are you doing? “she asked the patient,he nodded a fine and she sat down.
“Anne,Mr Salvador has something to tell you. “the doctor said and turned to the patient,
“Anne, I believe you know of my condition? “he asked her and she nodded,
“I’ve been in this hospital for a few days now and everyday you come here to check on me, I’m grateful for that.”she faked a smile cause this isn’t time for one, something is really up.
“So sir how may I help you?” She asked him,he looked at her eyeball to eyeball,
“Anne,I want to have a child with you.” He blurted, she was shocked by what he said and he knew it,
“Is that a joke?Cause I’m not liking it.” She said,he climbed down from the bed and knelt in front of her.He isn’t a type of person to beg for something but the situation required it,he had no other option,it took Doctor Williams several pleading to have him do it even though the importance is to him.
“Anne you should know how important this child is to me,I don’t have any relative and I need a bone marrow transplant.I need a blood relative to have one but I have non.” She stood transfixed,
“I have less than a year to live,I don’t think I want to die now.I’m just twenty eight and I’ve spent the last few years of my life creating a name for myself in the business industry, I have made money all to my name but have no living relation except for my foster mother who lives in Alaska. Anne,I promise to pay you awesomely for everything,please help me.” He pleaded, she turned to Doctor Williams but he removed his gaze from her so their eyes won’t meet so she turned to Deville.
“Mr Salvador I…….”
“Don’t worry about your boyfriend, I’ll talk to him but Anne please don’t let me die.” He interrupted her.
“Sir,I’m sorry but give me time to think about it.” She turned and left the room.
When she came out of the hospital, she got into her car and drove to Frank’s place,she parked outside and walked to the gate,
“Who’s there?” Sandro the security man asked her,
“Its me Anne,Sandro opened the door.” She said almost in a whisper,he opened the door and let her in.It was almost seven o’clock wen she got there, so she went headed to the main building, she heard laughter from inside,son she went inside.When she came inside,she saw Frank and a blond haired girl making out in the living room on the couch.They weren’t obvious of her presence,so they kept tossing and turning on each other, she stood there for almost five minutes but they didn’t notice her,they kept kissing and romancing each other.
“Frank!” She shouted,the turned to her,he was shocked to see her, he thought she was going to come back late.
“Baby who’s she?” The blond girl asked him,she was still clinging to him but Frank pushed to,he stood up,adjusted his pants and started coming towards her,she removed the ring,threw it to him and rushed put of the living room.When she got outside,she got into her car and drove home.
When she got home,she opened the door,headed to her room and jumped on the bed soaking her pillow with her tears.Not quite long after,she heard a knock on the door,”Anne please listen to me,”Frank’s voice could be heard outside her house but she didn’t stand up to open the door for him,some of her neighbours who know about her relationship with Frank came to know what the ruckus was all about but she didn’t stand up for once to open the door,she cried her heart content and dozed off.The next morning,she got prepared for work, took her morning coffee and came outside,only to find Frank at her doorstep, she gently close the door and left him there.
“Anne!” He called and she stopped
“I’m so sorry for yesterday.” She didn’t turn or utter any word,she got into her car and drove off to work leaving him there.
