Chapter 80 Story by, Rejoice
Alexandra ‘s POV
Jeremy and I stared out the window when we thought we got a bit tired of staring at his dad.
He still hasn’t woken up and Dr Sam said he should before its 12pm.
Its’s 10:35am now.
I couldn’t wait for his dad to wake up so he’do tell me what he wanna say to me.
“What do you love Andra..” He suddenly asked me.
“I’ve told you all that before.” I said.
“Yeah.. you can tell me again. Here’s boring now. My dad don’t wanna wake up.” He said.
I looked at him and noticed his hair needs new weave.
I guess he always reaweave it every weekend, but here he is, in a hospital.
“Your.. your hair needs new weaving.” I said to him.
“Yeah. I know.” He said, touching it.
I turned out the window again.
I don’t wanna keep looking at him cos he’s just too handsome and could make me do something crazy.
“Can you plait it for me?” He asked.
“Ofcourse not. I can’t do that.” I said, smiling.
“You’re so lazy…” He said.
“Hell. Im not. I can’t plait hair.” I said.
“Ugh, I don’t mean that.” He said.
“What do you mean then?” I asked.
He turned to me and took my hands.
“Why can’t you….” He was trying to say it when Moni walked in.
“Oh gracious. Did he wake up?”
Jeremy and I turned to her.. With Jeremy still holding my hand.
One hand now tho..
“And whaaat kept you so long?” Jeremy asked, and got his other hand into his trouser pocket.
“Oh you can’t ask me that. I got things to tidy up at the house.” She said.
“Why?” He asked.
She went silent for a while, then looked at him.
“Your mom is coming home.” She said.
“Dad doesn’t need her here. I don’t either!.” He said.
I squeezed his hand slightly.
I guess Moni saw this cos she smiled at me.
“Alex..” She called.
“Ma’am.” I answered.
“Oh, Moni is my name. Call me Moni.” She said.
“It’s such a good thing to know how close you two are. That time we met at the washroom passageway, My feelings told me you have the heart of someone close to me.” She said with a smile.
I glanced at Jeremy and he did same.
Looking really confused.
Did I already had his heart then? Cos those times, we were still enemies.. But do I have his heart now?
“What do you mean Moni?” He asked, staring at her now.
“It’s obvious.” She said with a smile.
Jeremy ‘s POV It’s obvious?
“Im just his friend Moni.” Andra said.
“That’s great. You are an affectionate friend.” She said.
Just then, Moni’s eyes widened as she stared at my dad’s direction..
I turned to him. Andra did too.
“His eyeslids moved. Oh I saw that.” She said.
Just then, I saw it. His eyelids really moved again, like they are about to open, Then followed by his fingers. They moved.
“Dad..” I called anxiously.
His eyes began opening.
We all stared at him as his eyes slowly began opening and his fingers moved more. Then it finally did.
He opened his eyes!!
“Dadddd..” I called, taking his hand.
He looked over at us with his eyes narrowed.. I guess his vision was still blur..
“Daddyy..” I called again.
He looked at me, it took him almost two minutes to finally keep his gaze.
When he did. It was on me… At me.
“Dad I miss you.” I said, holding his hand closely like he’s gonna disappear if I don’t..
“Je..remy.” He said weakly.
“Yes dad. Thanks for waking up.” I said.
He looked at the Moni, then at Andra.
“Ahh.. I feel so much pains on my legs..” He said.
“We need to call Dr. Sam.” Moni said and tried to go out but my dad’s voice stopped her.
“No Moni..” He said and looked at me..
“Im sorry.. Im sorry son, for not listening to you.” He said.
“No no Dad.. It’s fine.. Im glad you’re awake.” I said and kissed his hand.
He gave a weak smile and looked at Andra.
“She’s my friend dad. She’s amazing.” I.said and glanced at Andra and her face was down. She wasn’t even looking at my dad.
He smiled and looked back at me..
“I miss you dad.” I said.
“I miss you too son. What about her?” He asked.
“Who dad?” I asked.
“Your mom.” He said.
“I don’t know dad. All I wanna know and care about is you.” I said.
“Mark, Your wife is coming home today. I had to tell her about this.” She said.
“I can’t wait to see her.” He said.
Dad still love that witch!
# Chris POV
I was still here at the cafeteria..
We’ve gotten along pretty good.
Just in a day.
I can’t believe it. But im so glad we are.
I’ve been waiting for this moment in so many months now..
“You wanna be a doctor right?” I asked her.
“Yeah. I loved it right from when I was a kid. I love to help the sick recover and save people’s lives.” She said.
“You’re perfect for it. I mean those white coats gonna look really perfect on you..”
“And a stethoscope over my neck. Haha.. I love putting that and then check my dad’s heartbeat then, Those years I was a kid.” She said.
“Wow..” I said with a smile.
“You’do be a beautiful great doctor in the future.” I said.
“Thanks.” She said.
I stared at her.
“Steph..” I called softly. “Yeah?”
“Do you wanna see something?” I asked her.
She looked at me.
I got out my phone and scrolled through my gallery.
# Steph’s POV
“It’s like my secret. I love drawing and painting but I never think im too good to boast about it. My mom and dad, Jeremy and my kid sister are the only people that know I can actually draw and paint something.” He said as I stared at him..
I can’t believe we are talking quite good now.
It started by him, telling me how he feels for me.. Those love words that I guess found a way to my heart.
Then he began saying somethings quite funny and I found myself laughing to his talks and.. then he asked me If I wanna be a doctor and now he’s telling me about his painting secret.
Im wondering what he wanna show me.
“And… then those times I got so crazy for you Steph.. And I couldn’t stop thinking about you cos you were always in my mind, in my head. and I drank so much cos of you.. Cos I can’t have you.. I… I drew this.”
My heart beated as he said all that…
He stretched his phone to me and….I saw a drawing…
A gorgeous painting of me, in my brown blowing hair and my school shirt. God! Im I this beautiful?
And he had this inscribed on it.
‘SHE HAS MY HEART. I LOVE HER AND I’LL FOREVER DO!’ It touched me. It really touched me.
He loves me so much and I can’t deny that he’s been faking it.
I looked at him and he just stared at me.
“You don’t like it?” He asked.
“I… I do. It’s so beautiful.” I said and held myself from dropping a tear.
Here is someone that has been crazy in love with me.
And I’ve been..
“Thanks Steph for saying that you like it. I feel like I was awarded first, in a competition. I feel really proud and happy now.” He said.
His phone vibrated and made me flinch cos I was lost in my world of thought. My eyes went to the screen and it was,
I stretched the phone to him.
He picked the call.
I guess Jeremy told him something shocking or suprising or rather exciting cos his eyes went wide open and he let out,
Then the call dropped and he looked at me.
“His dad is awake now. We’ve been waiting for hours for him to.” He said and
I know I can’t go with him cos Jeremy don’t want me around.
“Steph.. Im sorry J is still this way to you but im sure he’ll let go in no time and you guys gonna be good too.” He said.
“It’s fine. I’ll just go home.. I’ll text Alex.” I said.
“Bye Steph.” He said, turned and walked towards the hospital building..
I blinked my eyes as a tear finally rolled down.
Im too glad he didn’t stay here to see it.
I just sat there on the seat and stared at him till he was out of sight..
God! I can’t explain how sad I feel right now.
He truely loved me.
Awwn Say something sweet.
