The True Duty of Royalty


4. Chapter 3: A Kiss Goodnight

I woke up and it was dark outside... or maybe I though it was outside or it was just how my heart looked like. It had no space for anything or anyone. The silence in my room was constantly broken by my mother's calls but I didn't answer any of them so I decided to switch off my phone.

I got myself ready to go to the clinic to visit Melissa. I hope she's awake. The hallways were empty because everyone was at class. The cream walls seemed dark like my heart. They looked kind of greyish. It seemed all the colours around me reflected what I was feeling. I got to the clinic it was full of nurses walking about. I walked to the ICU to see Melissa. She was still in a coma. I got close to her and kissed her forehead and said 'Good afternoon Melissa, you look stunning'. I grinned and a tear ran down my cheek. I wiped it off... I grabbed a chair and sat down beside her bed. I laid my head on her lap and held her hand and before I knew it I had fallen asleep. 

I woke up and... Celina was sitting across Melissa's bed. Her brown hair was wrapped in a tight bun and her eyes were glowing. How can I be noticing her in this situation? I'm so...

"I didn't know you and Melissa were friends." I said.

"Can we please not, I'm not in the mood to argue with you." said Celina.

"Why are you here?"

"Can't I be here to support a friend?"

"Do you mean me?"

"As funny as your joke is, I'm really not in the mood for your drama."

She still ignores me. What can I do to get her attention her kindness that Ricky has always boasted about. My stomach grumbled. I haven't eaten in a while, I better get something to eat. I stood up and left the clinic without uttering a word to Celina. I walked to the caffeteria and I almost looked like a zombie. I got to the caffeteria door and it was pretty packed inside so I decided to get something from a vending machine instead. Cheetos and coke they never fail to satisfy me. I have to get my homework from the days that I was absent so I went to Julian's room and there he was lying on his bed using his laptop watching... stuff.

"Hey, what's up? Feeling good?" He said standing up to hug me.

"Could've been better." I said in a low tone.

"So, what may the grand-master Julian help you with?"

"I need my homework."

"You don't need that, you should relax abit."

"I really need something to distract me." I said. Julian grabbed a couple of books and showed me the pages I need to work on. "Thanks."

"Anytime bro..." said Julian and he pat me on the back. I headed out of his room and went to mine. I jumped on my bed and started doing my homework.

3 and a half hours had passed and I wasn't finished. I decided that I should go check on Melissa.

I got to the infirmary and I walked to the ICU, nurses were whispering as I passed by them... I felt worried so I ran to Melissa's room... Tears started falling down my cheek. I kneeled beside her bed and and started crying into her sheets. Celina was still there and she was also crying. Celina was rubbing my back to help me stop crying but I couldn't... the fact that she... that Melissa was... still alive was overwhelming. I couldn't stop my waterfall of tears of joy. The sun was rising once again in my life.
I grabbed Melissa's hand started kissing it and apologizing for what I had done.

"I'm sorry... I'm sorry..." I said in between my sobbing.

"Don't say anymore, I know you are sorry but this wasn't your fault" said Melissa. Her voice made me so happy although it was weak and it has been such a long time since I had heard it..

A doctor rushed inside the room and said that Melissa needed to rest.
Melissa asked me to get closer to her using hand signals. I approached her and she kissed me. It was a slow and passionate kiss. I longed for a very long time. My heart felt like it was pumping once again after a long time of hibernation.

"I love you." said Melissa. I couldn't stop crying. I kept sobbing on her sheets. The nurses had to drag me out of there. They left me at the reception.

"Don't exaggerate, Derek. You don't have to keep on crying. Have you done anything else in the past few weeks? You're a man so grow some balls." said Celina and she stormed out with red eyes because of crying.

I realized that I should really stop and grow up. But I was really happy because I saw Melissa smile and... she gave me a kiss goodnight.
