We have all got secrets

Rebecca has been an orphan her entire life. When she reaches the age of 18, she has to leave the orphanage as she has become too old to stay. After living on the street for a few years, Rebecca finally gathers up the courage to look through her personal file in hope of finding her birth parents. Isn’t that what every orphan wants? At least that’s what Rebecca wants.

Family life isn't as easy as Rebecca originally thought. Her parents neglecting her, secrets, love and horrible things happen along the way to success.

13. Relapse

I, truly, thought everything would turn out just fine from now on. I, honestly, thought I would get my sister and my life back, but no. Just when I thought my life would turn for the better, something come along and rips that all away from me. Life hates me for some reason. I don’t know what I did wrong, I mean I’m a good person, I haven’t done anything wrong. 

Two days ago, I was the happiest I have been in a long time when Rebecca finally woke up. We were promised by that damn doctor that Rebecca was fine and that everything was looking good, and that she is going to be okay. 

If she is going to be fine then please tell we why she gets some kind of seizure that makes her slip right back into her coma the day after? I’ve sued the hospital and I got the doctor fired. Serves her right for making promises about the life of the most important person in my life that she can’t keep. 

“What is going on?” I shout at the poor nurse as she steps out of Rebecca’s room. 

“I’m very sorry to tell you that Miss. Gomez has once again slipped into her comatose state, currently because of reasons unknown.” 

“Reasons unknown? You don’t know?” I’m furious at their incompetence. How is it that doctors at the top at their field has no idea of what’s going on with my sister? “This is not what I’m paying you for!” The nurse looks at me with a sympathetic look before stalking away without as much as an answer. 

This happened yesterday, and I’m still beyond pissed. I’m standing at the end of Rebecca’s bed and I’m looking at her with a distant look as I’m stuck somewhere in my own thoughts. Louis hasn’t been here yet - I’m not even sure if he knows what has happened yet. I haven’t called him. 

I stare blankly at Rebecca’s calm body. Her brows are furrowed making me curious of what’s going on in her head. I wonder if she can hear me or if she’s dreaming. One thing is for sure; life is unfair and karma’s a bitch. 

Suddenly, however, out of nowhere, Rebecca screams at the top of her lungs. I gasp and I don’t comprehend anything as I’m shoved out of the room for what feels like the hundredth time in a short amount of time. The door is slammed right in my shocked face. 

"No! No, no, no, no, no! No, this can't be happening, this can't be happening!" I keep repeating to myself while I pace back and forth in the wide hallway with my hands running through my hair like it’s going to make a difference. Tears  are streaming down my face again as I walk towards the glass window into her room to see what’s going on. Normally the blinds are preventing me from seeing anything, but this times I have a clear vision. I look at my twin sister to see her look back at me for just a split second. When I blink her eyes are closed once again and everything is like nothing happened. I sigh in relief when she is calm once again and re-enter the room as the nurses and doctor scatter. I take a seat on a chair beside her bed and hold her hand in mine. Why does the universe hate me so much?

As yet another day passes I decide to call Louis. 

“What’s up, Sel?” He greets as he answers the call. I shallow the lump in my throat that’s forming just by the thought of telling him. 

“Can you come to the hospital?” I ask in a little voice. 

“Sure, Selena, what wrong? Is Rebecca okay?” Tears well up in my eyes. 

“Can you just please come?” I whisper. There’s shuffling on the other end. 

“Of course, I’ll be right there.” I thank him and hang up the call. I’m thankful they’ve decided to use their vacation here. 

Twenty minutes later, Louis walks up to me in the hallway. I’ve been pacing back and forth while biting my nails, anxious to tell him what’s going on. What am I supposed to say, when I don’t even know what’s going on myself? 

“Selena, what’s going on?” I don’t answer him. I walk straight up to him and throw my arms around his neck. I don’t cry, I just stand there. I stopped crying a while ago. 

“Selena, you’re freaking me out. Tell me what’s going on,” Louis demands while holding me an arm’s length away from him. I take a deep breath to settle the nervous feeling in my stomach and just blurt it out. 

“Rebecca’s in a coma again.” Louis doesn’t say anything for a few seconds, he’s just staring at me like he still doesn’t know what’s going on. 

“What do you mean she’s in a coma again? She was fine just a few days ago.” 

“Yeah, she was fine three days ago. Now she’s not.” I explain everything that has been going on in the last two days, how happy I was that she was awake, how furious I was when she relapsed, how I got the doctor fired, and the seizure she had yesterday. 

“So, what you’re telling me is we are back to square one?” I nod with a sad smile. “Oh, my fucking god.” I nod in agreement. 


After a silent few minutes, Louis sighs and runs a hand down his tired looking face. 

“Listen, it’s going to be okay, Selena, it has to be.” I only nod, I have nothing else to say. I notice that he doesn’t promise me anything. Normally, in a situation like this the other person promises that everything is going to be okay, but not Louis. He doesn’t know if it’s going to be okay again, if we’ll be able to move on from this. He doesn’t know if Rebecca is going to be okay, or if she’s ever going to wake up again. He doesn’t promise me something he knows he can’t keep, and for that I admire him. 

“You wanna come back to my place? You know, so you’re not alone?” I think about it for a moment and come to the conclusion that I probably shouldn’t be alone right now. Who knows when Rebecca is going to wake up, so I accept his invitation

“There’s just something I need to do first,” I mumble and return to Rebecca’s room leaving Louis in the empty hallway. 

Standing beside her bed, looking down at her lifeless form a sigh escapes me lips. I sit on the bed by her side and take her hand in mine. 

“I promised myself I would never do this, because I know that you can’t hear me, but here I am doing exactly that. Maybe I’m doing it for myself, maybe I’m doing it for the slightest bit of hope that it’ll help you wake up,” I can feel the tears press on behind my eyes so I stop to take a deep breath before continuing, “I’ve just told Louis about your state, again. I feel sorry for him I really do. I know he feels sorry for me, too, because he just invited me to his place. He really cares about you, you know, I can see it in his eyes every time he looks at you,” I smile a tiny smile and wipe a single tear away. I sniffle and bends down to press a kiss on her forehead. The furrow on her forehead flattens out as a reaction to my touch. “I love you, Becca. Wake up soon,” I whisper and leaves the room. I smile a reassuring smile to Louis before we leave the hospital together.
