Night Shift

I just realised that me being here is not just for me, but it provides strength to my dad. I was told by my aunties who stayed with him all these while, that my dad was very distraught and cried all the time. They didn't even have the heart to leave him even though they have their jobs to go to.

They were so glad I am back. For my dad of course and they were also worried that I couldn't make it to see my mum. But they had stayed since Tuesday, today they must go home. So we reshuffled schedule being the hospital in a very natural manner.

My lover volunteered to take the night shift from now on. If my mum is concious, she wouldn't be surprised at all. She would say this is next to natural thing for my lover.

My mother adores my lover. She really does. Even way before she met him. Of course that would be my doing promoting his goodness and all. It helps that he is quite a looker too. So those times we giggled because of that fact. But when she did meet him, my lover just swept everyone off their feet with his mild manner and humble ways. He is not exactly prince charming, that would be pretentious. He is just him. Nice and pleasant around my parents. He helped my parents a lot, I must say.

So tonight my lover and my dad are in the hospital. Keeping each other company outside the ICU door. Sleeping on the uncomfortable floor.

Just to be there near my mum.
