… At 5:15 pm ….
“Mr. Styles?” I heard a voice call from behind the closed door, and I woke up at that moment. I slowly slipped away from Harry’s warm hug, and covered him with the bed sheets again. I quickly dressed up, and opened the door to find Rosa waiting. “(I whispered, as I closed the door, and fixed my hair.) Harry’s asleep, Rosa. (I smiled at her and she nodded.) What can I help you with?” She handed me the land line phone and spoke: “I was actually looking for you Miss, but I didn’t find you so I knocked on Mr. Styles’s door. (She breathed and proceeded.) Your aunt is on the phone.” I nodded as she left off, and I took the phone call:
.. Phone Conversation..
Me: “Hey auntie, I’m sorry I was giving Harry his medication. (Thank god I didn’t stutter in this white lie.)”
Chloe: “Darling I have incredible news! Guess who finally decided to visit!? (She spoke cheerfully).”
Chloe: “Your parents! I can’t wait to see them! They called me yesterday, and told me that hopefully tonight their plane will arrive!! (I froze entirely; my parents!?)”
Me: “Do you think they forgave me?”
Chloe: “Honey that was in the past, don’t worry about it. You know they can’t stay mad at you! Let’s prepare something for them; like a home meal or something? Can you drop by in 20 minutes? (I wonder if they truly did forgive me, I mean they are the reason I came here to finish my education…)
Me: “Um… (I hesitated, what if Harry wakes up and he worries that I’m not here?) Let me just inform Harry, and then I’ll be there, alright?”
Chloe: “Oh isn’t that cute! Hehe, sure darling I’ll start on some dishes until you arrive; see you soon!”
.. End of Phone Conversation ..
I closed the phone, and sighed as deep as I could. My parents are arriving this evening? Why are they even coming? Is the whole negative string between us gone, or are they still cursing me for what I had done back in San Francisco? I didn’t want those memories to hunt me again; I just shook my head and walked back to Harry’s room.
He was still asleep like a white dove, but something caught my eye all of a sudden; he saw my gift?! He’s wearing the ring!? Impossible!? Silly me I should have noticed that he was wearing it the whole time! Aw Harry I love you so much, if only I could stay with you till you wake up. I wrote him a piece of paper, and placed it on his nightstand; explaining why I will leave for the rest of the evening. I kissed the finger that had the cross ring on it (http://applesofgold.com/Merchant2/graphics/00000006/RG101-28C.jpg), and left off to my aunt’s house.
