I walk out of the hospital, god I hate this place, when ever I come here I always feel so angry. How I wish my life was different, that I was flowing in money, and not drowning in poverty. I should be happy I am healthy and alive, but am not, I wish I am the one on that hospital bed, weak and pale and not my baby sister.
Our parents died when I was still in college, in a car accident, leaving me and Ava with little money, we weren't rich but life then was comfortable.
After my parents death I managed to finish college, but cancer has other plans. Ava was diagnosed of cancer, all of our money immediately went into treatments, soon enough we were broke. I knew I have to do something, so the moment I saw a job requirement for the position of a secretary I accept it, leaving my dreams of becoming a chef.
Now here I am today, 24 years old broke girl.
I work in a very rich and famous company, a security company, any security you are looking for just come to J's Enterprise. My boss Mr Julian John, yeah I know stupid name right? Any ways my boss Mr Julian is one of the world richest man, I should be honor walking with him but I am not, that man is a dick, he treats women like thrash. Every week I spend my time buying gifts for ladies, as a goodbye gift, the fucker can't even cut off his own relationship. He has been married for four times, and each women always fire a report about how he emotionally abuse them. That man is just too rude.
As i make my way to office, I give a few nod to my co workers, few of us have been here for more than four years, most people couldn't endure Julian's arrogant behaviour so they quit, sometimes I wish I've got the balls to stand up to him, that duchbag is annoying.
I place Julian's coffee on his desk and his appointment, oh and his favorite cookies, for a man with a shitty character he sure do act like a child, he has no idea I am the one making those cookies, they were my mum's recipe, she taught me how to make them at the age of fourteen, since then I have been making them.
I accidentally forgot my pack of cookies one morning on Julian's desk, while arranging his table, and the idiot ate it, and now I am forced to buy one for him everyday, he has no Idea that I made them. So I kinda just take the money for the cookies.
As I sit down on my chair, I couldn't help but to think about Ava, she has just six months to live, except I am able to magically poop up five million dollars then she can be save, but right now, I am not a money pooping machine, and it sucks, I feel like I have let my parents down, I couldn't take care of my kid sister, I am such a disappointment.
I was just too lost in my own little world that I didn't see Julian walk in.
'' Camilla, back to earth Camilla '' he snaps his long fingers in my face.
'' sir, good morning sir '' I quickly shake the body to get the tension out of my body.
'' you can do your man thinking outside, I want a focus secretary here '' he scold me, dick. If only he knew what's going on in my head,
'' yes sir '' I responded
'' good now follow me I have a job for you '' he didn't wait for me to respond, he just walk off expecting me to follow, and I followed.
He opens the door and we both walked in, he gesture for me to sit, and I also did.
'' OK as you already know, I am not getting any younger '' okay, this isn't what I was expecting, I was expecting him to order me to send some thing lovely to a girl, not this.
I just nod my head, to be sincere Julian isn't old at all, he is a walking work of art, he is drop dead handsome.
'' so I want a baby, and I need you to go through this file and tell me which woman is suitable to Carry my child '' wait what, a baby. Julian and a child. I try picturing it but nothing comes out, unbelievable, the world richest player wants a child, shot me.
'' if I make ask, why do you need a child sir ''? I ask I really really want to know his sudden craving for a baby.
'' that's non of your business, Camilla, your job is to find a good woman with a good background and a good health '' he gleaned at me, with annoyance in his eyes. I was curious.
'' sorry sir, it won't happen again '' I apologize, not that I did anything wrong.
'' and also if you have a friend who you know, is willing to apply, you can add them in '' he said with a smile, the fucker knows that I have no friends, but be likes pissing me off. I walk out of the office, angrily, not wanting to see his stupid handsome, mouth watering face.
I quickly buried my self in my work, most of the woman I see here are just too fake, everything about them screams trouble, non of them catch my attention. If I were to be Julian I would pick a woman who can take care of her self and the baby. Most of them looks like Barbie to me, too much plastic surgery, I am not even sure they can handle pregnancy.
As I look further into the file, I couldn't help but to shake my head. Julian want to bring his child the old fashion way, interesting, no woman would be able to resit his charm.
When I saw the price. My mouth fall open, my heart missed a beat, fuck. Twelve million dollars, he is willing to pay twelve million dollars to any woman that will agree to his terms.
With this money, I can save Ava's life, then open my own restaurant, and I will still have money left to train Ava to school. Only if I can give up my child.
What am I doing, I quickly shake the thought out of my mind, there is no way I am going to do such a thing, I won't sell my child.
I spend the rest of my day, looking for a good woman for Julian, but non of them catch my attention, so I call it a day and went home.
On my way home I take the bus, I can't afford am taxi so the bus or the subway is my only transport home. I sat close to the window and watch the street pass my eyes.
I felt a vibration in my bag, I brought out my phone and look at the call, its the hospital, I quickly answer it.
'' hello '' I answer.
'' Camilla you need to come to the hospital now '' the voice from the other side is calm, like she did not just scare me to death.
I hang up and stopped the bus, good thing the hospital isn't far from here. I quickly pick up a race, I ran like crazy until I reached the hospital.
I didn't bother greeting people like I normally do. I ran straight to my sister's room, the moment I get there the doctor is coming out.
'' is everything alright doc ''? I asked scared.
'' yes and no '' what did he mean yes and no,
'' I don't understand doc '' I said
'' for now she's alright, but we need to do the surgery as soon as possible, she's fading day by day '' he explain with pity in his eyes, I hate it when people pity me. I am not the one dying my sister is.
As the doctor left, I enter my sister's room, a single tear drop from my eyes, she looks so pale, her brown hair like mine is no longer there, her rosy cheek is now pale, I can literally see her bones, she's so skinny.
I can't lose her, she all I have left. There is only one thing to do. I have to save her life. God I hope I am not making the wrong choice.
