12. I'll Be Gentle I Promise
That was so awkward! I don’t know how was I able to maintain myself and not be mad at his judgmental comment, but I did that! Was it because of how his voice was deep and had a mysterious tone in it? Or was it how his alive body made me quiver? Or was it because of the soft skin he had, which made me dissolve like sugar in water? Ugh, what am I blabbing about! Focus on his case and not him, that’s the only plan and nothing more.
I smiled to myself as I went downstairs and saw Anne sitting on the couch fiddling with her fingers from worry. “Is he alright?” She directly asked me once I sat down in my earlier position. “(I smiled and spoke out of comfort.) If he hopefully stays like this, he will be better in no time I promise you.” The humble woman crashed me in her arms as I felt her tear on my shoulder. “(She cried out of happiness, and smiled as she replied.) Thank you so much dear, it’s your first day and look how positive things are going. You are a true blessing indeed.” I felt my happy face print itself on its own, and she returned the same action to me.
“I need you to make some adjustments in his diet though, more liquids than solids. (She seemed to be lost a little, so I decided to expand my explanation.) What I mean is, he needs to have more water, juices, milk, and soups in his meals. He could have any kind of proteins, but it must be cooked with less spices. We must also concentrate on giving him fruits that contain water, such as apples, oranges, pineapples, ect.” She called out directly: “Rosa, could you come here please?” The house keeper marched directly into the living room, & she looked professional in her job. “Dear, do you mind writing down everything on a piece of paper, and giving it to Rosa? She’s the one that takes care of the cooking sector as well over here. I’ll be right back; I just need to check on Harry, alright?” I nodded and took my note pad to write down everything my patient upstairs needed; I was really thrilled that I am able to be this independent in my own field.
…. 30 Minutes Later ….
Anne took a long while upstairs, and I basically couldn’t stay sitting like that; so I took a little walk around the ground floor. I saw many pictures of Harry golfing; him and the other boys, and other ones were glimpses of him performing with the band. “I’m sorry I’m late dear, Louis and I were helping Harry to take a shower; I didn’t know that I will take this long. He still can’t move perfectly that’s why it was a struggle.” Anne startled me from my gazing through the picture frames, and I smiled once I turned my face to look at her. “It’s alright I understand.” She directly asked after I spoke: “He needs to take his medication, do you mind if you go upstairs darling?” I directly marched up the stairs filled with excitement that I will be seeing more of his face.
I knocked on the door, and surprisingly Louis opened. “No we don’t want to buy any of your cookies, bye.” I laughed at Louis’s humor, as he made me way to step inside. I swear all I could look at now is him lying there with his hair damped and his chest rising and falling from his breathing. He looked at me and honestly, I never saw this before, but it was a genuine smile sent out to me. I walked in as Louis rested in his seat, and I took the injection out of the plastic sack to prepare the right dosage for his medication.
“Are you serious!” He groaned once he saw me holding it in my hand.“I’ll be gentle I promise.” I tried making him relax, and he huffed his anger out. I took his arm in my hand lightly and looked him in the eye, as I distracted him from looking on the process. As soon as the medication emptied from the injection I took it out and placed a cotton plaster on the area. “Did it hurt?” I asked him as he relaxed, and I let go of his arm. “(He looked deep in my eyes and spoke softly for the first time.) Not a bit; you were very delicate, just like your personality.” I swear my cheeks tore the roof from the blushing meter that stroke me; he was so adorable! “Ehmm! If that’s the case then I might as well try a sting from you too Becky.” Harry and I giggled to what Louis joked about; I really feel that for the first day with him, I a more than fine and relaxed to the extreme.
