"Cody relax!"I wiped his tears away as the nurse was holding his hands tightly.
"It doesn't hurt, sweetheart. Calm down"Riven, the doctor said. I smiled gratefully at him as I was hugging Cody. He was thrashing around and sobbing loudly. I've never seen him like that.
Riven finally took a sample of Cody's blood after he had calmed down.
Then, I asked the doctor privately"Is headache one of the symptoms?"
He glanced at me for some moments before shaking his head "No, it's not. Unless I would've told you"I released a sigh of relief"Why do you ask?Has he been getting a lot of headaches lately?"
"No. He just had a headache this morning. I'm just so worried, that's why."
"I understand but you can't be worried from every move he made or everything that happens. Here, take my card. You can call me whenever do you want. Either to talk about Cody or other things"he winked.
"Other things? What do you mean?"I asked confusedly.
"Anything you want to talk about"I shrugged and stood up.
"Oh okay, thank you doctor Riven"I smiled.
"Anytime"I proceeded to walk out, when I was stopped by his voice"You're so naive"he chuckled darkly.
"Huh?"I raised my eyebrows.
"You care about your brother more than yourself"he came forward and moved a strand of hair behind my ear. I didn't feel comfortable at all. I bit my lips nervously and breathed harder. "Don't!"He sternly said as be removed my lips away from my teeth. What the heck is going on?!
"I should get going"I walked outside while my hand was clutching my sac tightly.
"Wait!"He called"You forgot the card"I nodded and took it from his hand. I don't know if it was by accident, but he brushed my hand in his before I rushed to Cody.
"Car, are you okay? You look like you just saw a ghost"Cody rubbed my hand.
"I'm okay. I just hate hospitals"he nodded.
It wasn't a lie. I despised hospitals. I would die of sickness and not visit hospitals but I couldn't do that to Cody. It's not fair to decline treating him only because of my hate toward hospitals. I didn't care about my life but I cared about Cody's. He is my everything.
Episode 6:It Can't Be Carmen sat on the sofa, still waiting for a call from Riven. She jumped in her place as the clock struck midnight and made a quiet sound. She was so worried about her little brother that she was deciding on spending the night waiting for an answer from the doctor. Why hasn't he send me a text yet? Would the results be out by now? Would he call me if they are? I mean it's midnight so I don't think so she tried to think normally. She huffed and sat there for a couple more minutes. Her eyes weren't as wide anymore, they kept on blinking each second. Finally, her body unconsciously dropped on the couch and she fell into a dreamless sleep. **** Her body jerked up as she screamed "Little mouse, I'm going to catch you"she stood up as her senses came back to her again. Mouse? She was going to catch a mouse? What the hell was she possibly dreaming about?! She rubbed her eyes and dragged herself to her room. She entered the bathroom and did her d
"So..? I've been waiting since so many time. Just talk already!"Cody said in frustration as he pulled on his hair."Okay, okay. I'll talk"I took a deep breath"So you don't know why we went to the hospital today.""No I don't"he shook his head."Well, it's because doctor Riven wan-""Oh you mean River cow!"he laughed."Why do you call him by that?""Because his name is like River and he is stupid as a cow" he shrugged his shoulders innocently."And how do you know cows are stupid?"I raised my eyebrows teasingly."The moment I laid my eyes on him, I just knew it"
Carmen stared at her reflection in the mirror as her little brother was standing proudly beside her. She took in a deep breath and tried to believe that she was looking at her own self. In fact, she looked gorgeous."Cody, I-I look..."she searched a lot for the right word when Cody spoke."Hot! Yes you look hot!"he said with his cute high tone innocently.His sister laughed at him "Pfft no! Not hot but I look pretty"she returned back to the mirror. Her white blouse with small flower on it brightened the color of her eyes. The elegant-somehow wide dark red pants made her legs look taller and the six black buttons on the upper part of the pants, three on the right and three on the left was the best part of the pants. Cody has picked his mom's black heels and gave him to her. She teared up a bit when she sa
Carmen stormed out of the room as she blew some strands of hair away from her face. She looked at the fake Barbie who had a smirk on her face. She suddenly felt like beating the hell out of her.She jogged towards her and proceeded to grab her from her hair. "You're a stupid fake b*tch!"she screamed at her. She was shocked she had cursed for the first time ever. What was happening to her?She yanked the girl backwards and threw her on the floor. She backed her leg behind her and pushed it forward harshly, making it hit the fake blondie’s back. All of the women including the secretary were shocked, the latter tried to hold fuming Carmen back but she just ended in being pushed away. The lady on the floor kept screaming for help as Carmen was throwing punches at her face.
Carmen watched in amazement as the waiters filled the table with food."All this food for only the two of us?"she pointed at the super long table and looked at every plate as her eyes were glowing."We can eat as much as we want"Adrian shrugged and dug his fork in the pancake on the plate in front of his."Then leave a lot of food to get thrown, wow how awesome"she said sarcastically with a hint of annoyance in her voice which didn't go unnoticed by Adrian. She's still the same I see he thought."Enough nagging, just eat. Do I need to tell the manager to change the 'no smoking' sign to 'no nagging'?"She was shocked to the fact that a stranger was literally making fun of her."
Carmen's povBoth of us, Travis and I, knocked on the door the maid had led us to. I was biting my lips nervously as I heard a quick 'Come in', like he was expecting me.I took a glance at Travis and turned the door's knob around. The door opened and my eyes searched for that jerk. As I saw him smirking at me, my blood boiled."You are such a jerk! You could've left that damn sac with the waiter, but no you had to take it. Give it to me right now or I swear I will beat the hell out of you"I screamed while pointing at him. He scowled at Tracy and l- Tracy? Ughhh I mean Travis."Who is this? Your backup?" He looked him up and down."He is the taxi driver who has been waiting with me patiently to take his money. And it's all bec
Carmen's povI was sitting on my sofa, repeating his nasty words in my head. Recalling what he said in his last text. I wanted to... beat him. Just like what I had done to that girl in Charles' company. Oh Charles! That just makes me more furious. He is too much to handle. I hope I won't have to deal with him too much.I looked at the clock and smiled. It was a perfect timing. 10 am. Cody is still at school now and I have nothing to do so I can just go and show Riven how to be a pervert with me.I walked to the bedroom, wore a simple jeans with a half sleeves grey t-shirt and walked out of the house.I walked to the hospital since it wasn't so far. I had a rush of adrenaline and lots of confidence, it was surprising.I walked
Ronald's povI was sitting beside my father and Adrian, waiting for a few of the last women to arrive. It only took a few minutes until they were here.I wished Carmen was here. I felt so attracted to her, it was like love at first sight. Pfft, I am silly. There's no love at first sight. Also, I would meet her again if there was a chance, which will never happen.Samantha, one of the ladies, stood up and was a little far away from us. It was her turn to perform."Father, how many times have I told you that I already chose the actress"Adrian said with an annoyed tone. He had a scowl on and was glaring at our dad."What do you mean you already picked her? They haven't even showed us how they act yet!"I whisper yelled.
