20. Leaving

After a few rings someone picked up but it wasn't my mum it wasnt even a girls voice there was a guy on the phone,

*On the Phone*

"Hello, is this Emma Pearse,daughter of Amy Pearse?" the male voice asked,

"Yes, this is she who is asking?"

"Im Dr.Roberts from St.George Private hospital"

"ok, so what are you doing with my Mum's phone?"

"Well um do you want me to give it to you easy or just straight out?" he asked, and that scared me more then anything what did he mean easy way or straight out?,

"Um well give it to me straight" I said my voice shaky,

"Well your mother cam in for her monthly check-up and we found a new cancer cell which is curable if operated on immediately," I breathed a sigh of relief, thinking that everything was alright turns out i he wasn't finished, "but we think it may be too late to operate there is a chance that if we operate we can cure it but there is also a chance that your mother could die during the operation"

"So are you going to operate?" I asked quickly,

"Well only your mother can decide, and she wants to have the operation, and she has asked for you to be here with her"

"When is the operation taking place?"

"well as soon as possible, why?'

"Im in London right now, how am I meant to make it in time?"

"Well Im sorry we can't delay this operation so you should try booking the first flight here and hope for the best, Im sorry Miss. Pearse"

"This can't be happening to me Ive already lost one parent i can't lose another" I said nearly dropping the phone, I can't even believe that I have to go through this again, losing one parent to cancer is enough but now my mum I don't even think I can survive without her,

"Well, Miss. Pearse you best be booking your flights because I have to leave to prep for operation which will be taking place shortly, please try your best to make it"

"I will but it will take hours, I don't think I can"

"Im sorry, goodbye Emma"

"Thank You Doctor and please I can't lose her, shes all i have left" and after that all I could hear was a beeping sound, I locked my phone dropping it to the couch as I ran to my bedroom shoving all I could into my suitcase making sure I wasn't missing anything. I packed a quick carry on then grabbed my laptop jumping straight on to book a flight the next flight leaves in an hour. I grabbed my phone ringing up the airlines.


*On The Phone*

"Hello Qantas airlines, how may I help you?"

"Hi, I need the next flight back to Sydney, Australia I saw one that leaves in an hour and I was wondering if im allowed to book, Im sorry its really late but its urgent"

"Ma'am Im sorry but you are suppose to have your tickets ready and be here an hour before flight to officially check in"

"Look its extremely urgent what if I get there like 30 minutes early maybe more"

"Im sorry Ma'am you can't you will have to get a later flight"

"Im not in the mood to argue right now i was just told my mum is about to have surgery because she has cancer and I probably won't make it in time but I would like to get there as soon as possible the other flights aren't for another couple hours and I don't have that kind of time" I said hoping she would understand my situation now, I had to get there and at this rate I won't be there any time soon.

"Ok Ma'am listen to me Ill book your flight you come in, you get here as soon as possible and pay and I will check you in personally but you need to be here at least 30 minutes before the plane is mean't to board"

"Oh My Gosh, Thank you Ill leave right now I shouldn't be to long"

"Ok when you get here come up to the Qantas desk and ask for Kaytlan"

"Ok and thank you again"

"No problem and I really hope your mum is ok, bye"



Thank god now I just have to get there. Since I already had my bags packed I just have to get a cab, I grabbed the hotel phone pressing the speed dial button for the front desk,

*On The Phone*

"Hi, 4 Seasons Hotel, Damen speaking"

"Hi im Emma Pearse from room 145, I need a cab asap"

"No problem, where will you be heading to?"

"Oh the airport, Ill be down soon"

"Ok Ill have a cab here to pick you up"

"Thank you, bye"


I said hanging up I grabbed my stuff my suitcase and walked over to the massive windows near the tv that over look london. I stood there for not long wanting to grab a last look at the beautiful view. When I was done I ran at of the room over to the elevator driving it to the lobby and making my way over to the front desk.

"Hi Im Emma Pearse, I called for a cab not long ago?" I asked the guy standing at the front desk,

"Uh yes" he rung the bell on the front desk as a mean came over grabbing my bags, "He will led you to your cab, Have a nice flight" the guy said smiling,

"Thank you" I said turning to follow the guy with my bags as he took me outside to a cab placing my stuff in the boot,

"Thank you" I said jumping into the cab as the driver turned the car on. The only thought that was going through my mind was if I would make it in time, if I would see my mum again. I was too deep in thought to see someone outside of the cab trying to get my attention as I drove off I heard my name called I turned to see it was ...
