It has been two weeks and it is the day of my surgery. I am ready for it. It is not a great deal, it is just a surgery. A small one. I was on the way to the surgery room.
“You will do it, remember I love you.”
Noah says holding my hand.
“I love you too and stop stressing, it is not a big deal.”
I smile at how much he was stressing. Soon enough they give me the injection and I fall unconscious.
The surgery was in progress when the light suddenly turned off. It couldn’t be this early. The nurse comes out.
“Her vein is wounded, blood is flowing so hard. We are not able to stop it, it will take time. In the meantime we will need someone to donate her soon or-!”
I cut her off.
“I will do that.”
“What is your blood group?”
The nurse asks.
The nurse says.
“She is O-. We would need someone with O- to donate her blood.”
“Who would save her?”
I ask hopelessly.
We look over to the door.
the nurse asks. This was turning in a comedy show. What type of questions are these?
“Why would you do that? Don’t you hate her?”
“There is no time for questions, Violet needs me.”
“I am O-, you can check.”
The nurse quickly checks and smiles. Now we all sat there waiting for the surgery to be over.
“How can this be even possible?”
“I don’t know.”
“Can it be that we all are dreaming the same dream?”
“I will slap you then.”
“No, I totally believe that this is reality.”
Josh says with a scared look.
“You two look really good together.”
Dad says to Sarah and Josh. The light turns off. I wish it was for good this time. The doctor comes out. We all hurry up to him.
“The surgery was a success. Congratulations!”
“Can we go see her?”
He says and goes away. We ran inside. There she was sleeping calmly. She did look like and angel while sleeping.
“Noah, I did it.”
She said in her sleep. I kissed her forehead.
“Yes babe you did it...”
I smile then I rushed over to the person who saved her life. She was there smiling at me.
“I don’t think I will be able to thank you Rebecca.”
“You don’t need to, it was nothing after what I did to you and Violet. Think of this as an apology...”
“We are having a party after Lettie recovers, will you come?”
“I would love to.”
“How this change in heart, don’t tell me you have fallen for Noah?”
“I am not. Why would I? I have someone already...”
she says daydreaming. Oh these girls. I go over to Violet. I look at her sleeping face. She is just too beautiful. I can’t. I lean in and kiss her. When I break apart
“What’s up stealing kisses while I am sleeping huh?”
she asks half smiling. My face turns red.
“Shut up and kiss me again!”
she says and pulls me by my collars. I kiss her and I don’t want to pull away but the nurse comes in and tells me to
‘stop doing these immature things and let her recover’.
How thoughtful? Ruining our kiss like this. Well she just needs a week before she will be fine just like she was. I drop Rebecca at her home and thank her and say that she must come to the party.
Then I am going back to the house to make some porridge for Lettie when someone grabs my hand from behind.
“I have always waited for this moment. You and I alone. Just leave her and come to me.”
I snatch my hand away and turn around. I stop myself from slapping her right in the face.
“I warn you Scarlet, I won’t be able to stop myself and I would slap you if you don’t stop saying those things. You have no right to say anything.”
I say and start walking away.
“What does she have that I don’t have?”
“What does she have? She has everything. What you don’t have? You have nothing. One more thing, don’t ever touch me again and don’t come close to Violet or me or someone I care about or you would need a surgery to get back to how you are....”
I say and walk away.
