“What happens in the party?”
Her question makes me stop on track but I know she needs to know what happened at there. I inform her everything from someone spiking her drink till Robert. during the conversation, I look at her but her face was void of any emotions.
“Where is Michael?” she asked hastily.
What will I told her when I don’t know where is he? I look at her and shrugged.
“I need to see him” She said and trying to get out of the bed.
“No. You are not going anywhere”I spat angrily and pushed her on the bed.
“You cant stop me, knight. I need to go” She said with equal raged.
“No, you don’t"I said through gritted teeth. why cant she understand that she needs to rest? why she had to behave like a 5-year-old?
“I am going, whether you like it or not. You can just boss me around”she stood up complete ignoring my presence.
“YOU.ARE.NOT.GOING.ANYWHERE” I said every word clear. I try to calm my anger. I don’t want to hurt her.
“He needs me Brandon” she sighed."If you want you can come with me. I promise, I will rest after meeting him”She added immediately.
“Okay, let’s go.” I pick her in my arms making her squeaked.
‘oh god, her squealed so sexy making me turn on’
“Hey, put me down, you idiot”
“No. I will carry you because your stupid ass wants to go out instead of doing rest.“I winked her. she gaped at me.
“Where are you taking mommy, daddy?“My cute lil angel asked me. she is complete awake after seeing Ashley wake up.
“Mommy, you awake” she sings happily and jumps from the bed. Ashley catches her before she hurt her. Now, Ashley is in my arms and Mel lying on her. I like this position very much.
“Easy, lil one. please don’t do that again. what if you get hurt?“Ashley asked concerned.
“sorry mommy,” Mel said in a sad voice.
“Don’t be sad, princess but don’t do that again,“I said to make her mood lighten.
“Are you going somewhere?”
“Yes my child. I am going to meet Michael. I will come back soon"Ashley said to her.
“I want to spend some time with mamma” Mel said stubbornly and placed her head in the crook of her neck hugging her tightly.
“Sweet pea. Mommy has to go. Uncle Mike need me. We will spend time together and I will make your favorite cheesecake.“Mel smiled happily but her smile turns into a frown.
“No. I just want my mommy. please take me with you”Mel gave her puppy dogs eyes which no one can save.
she sighed and nodded. Mel starting dance happily.
“Okay, let’s go”. Mel walks beside me while I carry Ashley in my arms even after her protest. I love to carry her, it’s making me feel happy. like old times happy. I am not going to lose her like I lose her.
We reached Michael house in record time. All the way Ashley bugging me to drive fast. When we parked outside his house, she literally jumps out of the car before I came to open her door. She was in hurry like she knows something will about to happen. I don’t know what to expect at this moment.
we enter his apartment. the whole apartment was silent like no one is there. few noises came from afar. we ran towards noise with Mel in my arms. I saw Mia, Michael fiance banging her hand on the door.
“Please, open the door baby” She cried.
her faces was stained with dry tears while fresh tears make there from her eyes t her chin. she breathes heavily but non stop banging on the door.
“Where is he?“Ashley breaks the silence. she pulled Mia away from the door and try to calm her down. she pointed her finger towards the closed door. It makes me anxious by thinking possible scenarios.
“Michael, open the door,” Ashley said calmly. too calm for my liking.
“What happened to Uncle Mike? Why is he not open the door?”
“Nothing baby girl. he is just upset. he will be fine soon” I kissed her forehead. she just nodded and turned her attention towards Ashley. who was stood there like a statue.
“M-Ma’am. I never saw him like that before. what if he does something to himself?“Mia dropped to her knees cupping her face in her palm sobbing profusely.
“He does not do any such things. don’t worry” Ashley said and do something which I never thought..
Normally every person in these kinds of situation do only two things- either pleaded to them not to do something wrong or stood there watching helplessly, but she is something, really something.
“MICHAEL SAMUEL RODRIGUEZ... OPEN THIS DAMN DOOR NOW IF YOU DON’T WANT TO REPAIR IT” she looks furious like a wounded animal. Within a second door open by him.
I know he will not do such things as taking his life or anything but he can harm himself for sure.
After he opens the door I barged into his room and saw the mess of a room created by non-other than him....
“Mind explaining what is this?“I asked seeing ruined bedsheet, brake lamps and tables. his hand also wounded due to breaking so much glasses.
he shrugged and sit on the floor beside his bed.
I sighed inwardly.
“Mia bring me first aid box”
she gave me first aid box and stop at the doorstep with Brandon and lil one.
I take some antiseptic and applied on his hand. he pulled his hand roughly out of my hand and shouted.
“I don’t need any help. just leave me alone"I know he didn’t mean this word. so I just ignore it before taking his hand again before cleaning it. this time he didn’t argue and let me do my work.
“Mike’ a tear rolled down his cheek follow with another with a loud sobbing.
he hugged me tightly around my waist and placed his head on my lap.
“I am sorry, sissy.. I couldn't save you” he cried profusely. he always calls me sissy when he is very upset. for him, I am a complete package of a family. I am his mother, father, brother, sister, everything for him.
“Hey, it’s not your fault mickey. don’t blame yourself for something you didn’t do. you know I love you, right?”
“No.. it’s my fault. I am a bad omen. T-they died because of me. and now y-you. It’s better if I died with them that day” He hiccuped.
how could he say that? I am not his family. he wants to leave me alone in this world.
I break the hug and cupped his both cheeks in my palm.
“Don’t you dare say anything like that again? am I not your family?” a tear rolled down my eyes. I am hurt , so hurt with hi words.
how can he?
“I didn’t mean to say that sissy. I am sorry. I love you too sis’He pleaded with sincerity.
“Just don’t do that again . you make all of us much worry"I said seeing Mia who silently cried.
he followed my gazed and stood up. He pulled her in for a bone-crushing hug. Brandon too came and stood beside me.
We came out of the room to give them some time alone.
As soon as I came out of his apartment my feet leave the ground. No there is no earthquake or anything but this idiot again carry me in his arms and this time I didn’t argue. I am very sleepy now, and he feels so warm... I close my eyes and doze off with the speed of light.
