Midday Sleep

It was midday. I just put my son to sleep. I must have drifted to sleep somehow. I woke up, it was 11:20. The house was quiet. My lover wass out, the kids are at their grandparents. Nothing to rush for. No reason to be up. Zachary's porridge is done. My lunch can be instant noodles. I've been craving for that lately.

Zachary was on my right. I rolled to the left. Then I closed my eyes again. After which I heard voices. Someone is in the house. They walked into the room. I am sure there are more than one. At least two of them. My heart was beating furiously.

I can't wake up!

They walked towards Zachary. Whispering. I can somehow hear they were talking about what Zachary did this morning. Still in whispers, I can hear they were trying to move Zachary. Pulling him towards them slowly.

NO! NO! YOU ARE NOT TO TAKE MY BABY! NOT UNTIL A FIGHT!

I couldn't shout though! I just laid there struggling to even open my eyes. I tried to move towards Zachary..but my body just refuse to respond. What is hapenning? My brain is still functioning..I am still thinking, at least that's what I thought.

I tried as I might to lift my right arm. I managed, finally and put my arms across his chest. It was an akward position. Myself on my side to the left and hand clinging out to the right for my baby's life.

DON"T YOU DARE MOVE HIM!

They stopped pulling. They went quiet. For a long three seconds, I felt Zachary turned towards me. Put his little, soft hands on my shoulder.

The whispers again.

Then I felt they backed off. Walked away slowly, but not before one of them hold my foot. A non threatening few seconds. Then I felt a soft fabric like caressing my foot.

Somehow I thought of my lover who has this habit of waking me up by tapping my foot with his socks.

They left slowly towards the door. I heard shillings jiggling in my handbag.

No. Something is actually at my ear. Tickling them. Whispered again

When are you going to wake up?

I slowly opened my eyes. Very afraid of what is to behold of me.

My lover was leaning over me.

Let's have lunch. I bought something

It's already 1:00.

And Zachary is already up.

My heart was still thumping though.
