17. A Key For Me
…. The Next Day ….
I have the morning shift at Harry’s today, since my hospital duty starts at 4:00. I went to shower and then slid on my chosen outfit (http://www.polyvore.com/nature_falls/set?id=100236490). I finished my soft makeup and went out of my room to meet my aunt in the kitchen. I honestly thought she was already on her way to her work, but not today she wasn’t. I hugged her and she kissed my cheek as a greet back.
“Is anything bothering my beautiful niece?” I smiled at her care, and I went to poor some coffee in my mug. “Not at all auntie, I’m just still managing my time with my double shifts.” She looked at me like she knew that wasn’t the complete truth, but she managed to nod. “You know, Anne called me yesterday. (I sipped my coffee as she went on.) She told me that you are doing your job perfectly, and that she is so happy with how you turned out to be a professional.” I smiled to what I heard; it really made me feel a little bit happy from the inside.
“Auntie, I kind of got invited to this reception tomorrow; it’s for Harry’s sake. I don’t know whether to go or not, plus I have nothing to wear at all, so do I go or do I stay home?” She lifted one eye brow like it was a sarcastic symbol. “Of course you will attend! You helped majorly with his recovery, and you wouldn’t be invited if that wasn’t true. And don’t worry about clothes, leave that to me. You’re still a size 4 right? (I nodded in confusion.) Then it’s settled, you’re going even if it was just making an appearance.” I answered: “If that’s what you think is best, then I will. Although, I still am having back and forth thoughts on this.” I placed my mug in the sink and said goodbye to my aunt as I left to Harry’s.
I reached, and walked to enter the huge house. “Good morning Miss Lane.” Rosa greeted me as I responded: “Good morning to you too Rosa. Has he woken up? I need to give him his medication.” She replied: “Not yet, I prepared his breakfast like you instructed on the diet list. I’ll meet you up with the tray Miss.” Wait, does this mean that I will be the one that will wake him up? And why isn’t any of the boys here today? I don’t know how I will be able to stay alone with Harry all this time.
“Oh Miss Lane, I forgot to inform you. Mrs. Anne made me copy the house key for you, it’s just so that you could use it if someday you decided to stay over.“ She handed me the key from her pocket, and I smiled to the lovely gesture that Anne did for me. I love how she and I are close and we connect perfectly with our social radiance. “Thank you Rosa, now please do grab the breakfast tray and follow me upstairs.” She accepted as I walked upstairs quietly. I opened the door slowly so that I won’t cause a disturbance for Harry.
