8. Seven

I was getting frustrated. The doctors haven’t found out wants wrong with Saria and it doesn’t seem like they are trying to either. I don’t understand. I still had Saria in my arms. She looked like a little angle and I couldn’t let her go. Not like this. I untangled her from my arms and quietly went out the door to not wake up. I wanted to find her doctor, but instead I found my dad talking to somebody. She looked familiar. The closer I got, the more I can hear them talking. “Let me pay for her medical bills. It the best I can do,” the woman said.

“No. you’re not doing anything for her,” my dad yelled at her.

“Why not? She is my granddaughter too.”

“Then were where you when your own daughter needed you? When she asked me where her mother was?”

“I want to make up for it. I want to finally meet my granddaughter, and finally see my own daughter again.”

“Mom? What are you doing here?” I cut in.

“Oh my, you grown so much,” she whispered, coming closer to me.

“Yeah that’s what happens when you have seen someone in fifteen years. They grow up.”  I stepped away from her and she stopped moving towards me.

“Honey, I’m sorry that I left but I have my reasons.”

“What kind of reasons? To leave your only daughter and your husband?’ I turned away and started to walk away.

“Don’t you dare walk away from me younger lady!” she yelled after me.

“Well that’s the only thing I learned from you.” I ran away from her to the outside of Saria’s room. I leaned against the wall feeling my legs give out as I slide down. I felt my face get wet, but  I didn’t know exactly why I crying. She was the one that left my dad and me, when I was only two. I didn’t know for what reason and I didn’t want to know. I felt arms go around my waist and pulled me in their lap hugging me. “Baby, what’s wrong?”

“My mom, she is back. After all this time, she came back. Why did she come back? I am better off without her,” I whispered into his chest.

“Maybe, she finally realized that she lost the most amazing person she could ever have.” I giggled.

“Shay, can you promise me one thing?”


“Promise that you will never leave me.”

“I would not leave you for the universe.” He kissed me. His phone went off and took it out to look at it. Frustrated, he pulled away from me and answered it . “Hello… No… Why should I? So I can be yelled at again… Really? That’s not what happened last time… I don’t care anymore. Bye.” He hung up, stood and threw his phone across the hall. It broke in a couple pieces. “Shay are you okay?” I stood hugging him.

“Yeah, just some issues,” he hugged back, his voice strained.

“Was it your parents?”

“Yeah, they want to make up with me and have me go over there for dinner, but every time I go over there, they yell at me. I am just a disappointment in their eyes and always will be.”

“But you will never be in mine, or Saria’s, or Trey’s. Let me go with you. I can help kind of.”

“Thank you.” he hugged me tighter.

“Hey, sweetie can I talk to you?” My dad said.

“Sure daddy.” I let go of Shay.

We walked to the cafeteria which was just around the corner. It was silent when we sat down but I was sick of the silence, I spoke up, “Dad, what’s wrong?”

“Your mom. She wants to pay for Saria’s hospital bills,” he said refusing to look at me.

“Why should I let her?”

“She wants to make up for leaving us behind.”

“I won’t accept the money dad. Why should I?”

“I got a call today. I lost my job.”

“What? Why?”

“I got laid off.”

“They can’t do that!”

“They can and did.” My mother came over and sat down next to me. “Just let me pay. I can also pay for her to get the best care she needs to get better.”

“She won’t get any better. The doctor said she only has a few weeks.”

“No honey I talked to the doctor. A nurse mixed up the paper work. She can get better. The doctor was going to tell you, but I found him first. So I told him that I would tell you.”
