Anastasia’s pov 👠

LA city hospital…

Graham drives into a space in the parking lot, without wasting time, I open the door and jumped out of the car.

Klaus follows suit, then we head towards the hospital entrance… breathlessly, I ran past wards until I stopped at Denzel’s.

I grab the door handle and push it open, my eyes move straight to Denzel’s bed.

He’s laying down with aunt sitting by his side, she’s holding a Bible and a cross… singing quietly.

Seeing aunt’s expression and how stilled Denzel’s laying on the bed… made me wonder if something happened to him.

With my heart pounding, I studied Denzel and realized he’s awake and he’s staring at aunt.

He turns his head towards me, he smiles.

“A-nna?” Denzel stutters softly.

Aunt raised her head and sees me, she rushed towards me and pulled me into a hug.

“You’re finally here!” She whispers in my ear.

I wrap my arms around her, I rub her back in a comforting manner.

“Aunt, you said it’s about to start.. why isn’t Denzel dressed yet?” I asked.

If he’s going into the operating room, he should be in lighter clothes by now… but he’s still in his usual clothes.

Aunt pull away, she holds my hand with lead me to the couch she was sitting… she made me sit next to her.

“I just wanted you to be here… ”

She pause and sucks in a large amount of air, before releasing a shaky breath again.

“…. I’m a little bit nervous, I just needed someone to stay by me and pray with me!”

I take her hands in mine and rub them, her hands are so cold.. like freezing cold.

She’s not a little bit nervous at all, she’s very much nervous… I’m nervous too but not as much as her.

“Aunt, Denzel has been fighting since the beginning, he’s not gonna give up now!”

My eyes subconsciously glance at Denzel as I say those words, he’s staring at us…he look so clueless, but I know he knows what we’re talking about!

“I

know.. I know.. I’m just… I don’t know, I’m having a cold feeling deep in my gut!”

“You’re just scaring yourself, aunt, everything will be fine!”

Denzel

sit up, he crawls to the edge of his bed and reach for aunt’s hand.. he smiles.

“Doctor Hemsworth said I’m a very strong boy.. he said I’m a superman, right Anna?” He calls for my backup.

I nod quickly. “Yes, you’re a superman!”

Aunt didn’t say a word, she simply gives us a weak smile.. she inhales deeply and tries to calm herself down.

“And besides, I believe you’ve been praying.. God is listening!” I told her.

I’m comforting her, at the same time comforting myself…Klaus steps closer to me and rubs my shoulder reassuringly.

He’s been standing by the door since we came in.

A

knock is heard and doctor Hemsworth walks in, he’s already dressed and ready.. he’s holding a nose mask in his right hand.. he’s already wore his gloves too.

“Doctor!” I called him.

He smiles at me briefly before turning to Denzel, he reaches for Denzel’s hair and ruffles it.

“How is my superman feeling today?” He asked.

Denzel beats his chest and puffs it out.

“I’m good!” He answers.

“Are you ready?”

“Yeah!” He frowns. “After this I’ll be fine.. right?”

“Of course, champ, you’ll be super strong too!”

Denzel chuckles and turns to aunt who’s still shaking slightly.

“Aunt, listen, he said I’ll be fine!”

Aunt nods. I face doctor Hemsworth and called his attention.

“When is the operation gonna commence?”

“Soon, you should start dressing him!” He said.

Aunt got up and steps closer to doctor Hemsworth and I.

“I hope all your facilities are of standard quality?”

“Yes, Ms Bell… I assure you, your boy is in safe hands!”

Aunt nods, but she doesn’t seem like she’s satisfied with his answer… She wanted to ask another question but I cut her off.

“Doctor, let’s get ready!”


Aunt holds Denzel’s hands in hers, as the nurses pushed him towards the operating room on a stretcher.

Klaus and I follow them too, soon, we arrived and they stopped outside the room.

My hand holding Klaus’, tightens and my heart beat increased, the words written on top the door haunting my eyes.

I stagger back slightly.

“Anastasia, breathe, Denzel needs you to be strong now!” Klaus whisper in my ear.

My eyes move to aunt, she’s holding Denzel’s hand in a death grip.. her eyes red.

Klaus is right, I shouldn’t show any weakness now… Aunt and Denzel needs me to be strong.

I walk closer to them and smiled at Denzel.

“Den, aunt and I are waiting for you here, ok?”

He nods.

“You’re gonna go in there with doctor Hemsworth and come out with him safe and sound.. can you do that for me?”

He

nods again. “Yes!”

He turns towards my aunt and frowns, he turns back to me.

“But Aunt is still crying… Am I gonna die in there?”

I slap my hand on his mouth, I shake my head frantically.

“No! No, don’t ever speak of you dying again… you’re going in there and coming out in one piece!”

He nods, I remove my hand and walk over to aunt.. she couldn’t say anything, she’s just staring at him with her red puffy eyes.

“Aunt, do you have something to say to Denzel?”

“I.. I.. just want my boy to be fine!” She said.

“Of course, he’ll be fine!”

Doctor Hemsworth walks into the scene, he faces aunt and give her a reassuring smile.

“Denzel will be fine, trust me!”

Aunt grip his hands.

“I’m putting his life in your hands, make sure he comes out in one piece… Or I swear, I’ll tear this hospital down!”

Doctor Hemsworth nods frighteningly, I gently pull aunt away from him and signal him to leave with Denzel.

He nods and instructs the nurses to push Denzel into the room, he enters after them.

Aunt and I watch the doors closing slowly.. finally, the doors close… Aunt inches forward.

“He’ll be fine… He’ll be fine!” She chant as she holds up her bible.

I understand her fear, she’s just so much in love with Denzel.. he’s a sweet little boy after all.

Matilda’s pov 👠

Working in the financing department is very hectic.. why didn’t I know this before?

It’s just my first day at work and I’m already going through every single account book!

My phone vibrate in my pocket, I reach for it and check the caller’s ID… It’s Jack calling.

“Hello, Jack?” I receive the call.

“Hey, Tilda, I was trying to reach Tasia but couldn’t.. is everything alright with her?”

I frown, but I quickly remember that her phone’s broken.

“She broke her phone!”

I stamped a report and keep it aside, I reach for a stapler and staples some papers together.

“Why are you looking for her?” I asked.

“Nothing, we agreed to meet today but it’s past 3pm and I haven’t seen or heard from her!” He said.

“I guess it’s because her phone is broken!”

There’s a brief silence, before he speaks again.

“Do you by any chance knows where she is?”

I paused and narrow my eyes.

“She’s at work dummy, I’m at work too and you’re disturbing my work!”

Ok, I’m angry at my work load and what I’m doing right now is.. transfer of aggression!

“Well.. if you can reach her, please remind her of our meeting!”

I sighed deeply. “I will”

Just then I saw Marcus walking towards me, I rolled my eyes.. this is the twentieth time he’s come to this department today.

“Jack, I gotta go now!” I said and hang up.

Marcus stop in front of my desk, he pulls out a chair and sit down.

“Miss Spears, I can see you’re doing a great job!” He said.

“Mr Aurelius, is this how you’re gonna keep monitoring me everyday?” I asked.

He smirks and throws me a wink, his eyebrows raises slightly.. giving him a boyish look.

Boyish what?! What am I thinking?! I slap myself mentally and shake my head.

“You look beautiful when working!”

“Really?!” I scoff. “Your flirting skills are so lame!”

“I can learn from you.. if you’re willing to teach me”

I ignored him and continue with my work, I can see some workers looking our way.. they might be wondering what’s my relationship with Marcus.

“If you wanna take the rest of the day off, I’ll let you!” He suddenly speak.

I frown.

“Off? Why should I take a day off?”

“You know, Anna is in the hospital”

“Hospital? Is she sick?” I asked.

“No, today is her brother’s operation.. I think she might need your company!”

Shoot! Tasia told me about it, I forgot! How can I forget something so important to her?!

My eyes meets my wrist watch.. it’s already 3:31pm.

I stand up abruptly and snatch my phone from the table, I pick my bag too.

“I.. I should get going, thanks for your reminder!” I said.

He gets up too. “I’ll come with you!”

Anastasia’s pov 👠

LA city hospital…

♪ you sent your word… ♪

♪ and you heal my disease… ♪

♪ you are my Lord… ♪

♪ my healer…. ♪

Aunt has been singing this song silently to comfort herself, some times I’ll sing along.

We’ve been waiting outside the operating room for 4hours now.

Doctor Hemsworth had told me earlier, that it’s gonna be a 3hours operation… but it’s 4hours now and he’s still not out yet.

“Klaus?”

“Yeah?”

“Why do you think they’re taking so long?” I asked.. my voice a little bit shaky.

Klaus wraps his arm around my shoulder and pull me closer to him.. he placed a kiss on my forehead.

“They’re making sure everything is fine… don’t worry, aunt has been praying for Denzel.. God is working on him!”

I know he’s just saying that to comfort me, Klaus doesn’t believe in God.. he doesn’t even believe in what he’s saying.

“But they’re taking so long!”

“He’ll be fine!”

I feel a gush of cold blow past me and I suddenly feel so cold.. I shiver and Klaus hugs me tightly.

“I’m cold!”

“Then lean on me, I’ll keep you warm!”

I did, I lean on him but I’m still cold.. right at that moment the doors open and doctor Hemsworth walks out.

Aunt and I sprint up, we raced towards him.. aunt look behind him as she look for Denzel.

“Doctor, how was it? How is my brother? Can we take him home now?” I asked in one breath.

Hemsworth bows his head and didn’t say anything, he look sad and I frown.

“Doctor, talk to me… how was the operation? How is my brother?”

Aunt is looking at him eagerly, she’s waiting for his reply as much as I am.

“I’m.. I’m sorry, Ms Bell.. Miss Lopez…”

“Sorry? You’re sorry about what?” I asked.

My heart pounding, like I already know what he wanna say, I’ve watch this scene in the movies.

“We tried our best.. but.. we lost him!”

I hear a thud, and turn towards aunt, she’s laying on the floor… some passerby nurses rushed to her.

My head grows bigger and heavier as I replay his words in my head… I turned to him with my eyes wide open.

I grab his cloth. “Is this a joke? Huh? Are you pranking me?”

He shakes his head.

“Miss Lopez, I wish it’s a joke!”

“Don’t wish! Tell me it’s a joke! Tell me! Say it!” I screamed in his face.

But he didn’t say it, he shakes his head sadly. I staggers back and Klaus holds me to stop me from falling.

“It’s not true, Denzel is fine! He’ll run out of that room and tell me he’s a superman.. right Klaus?”

Klaus didn’t reply, I stare at him with a frown… why isn’t saying anything?!

“Denzel is a strong boy, he’s been fighting from the beginning.. he won’t give up now.. not after all the struggle…”

I made to run past doctor Hemsworth into the operating room, but Klaus held me back.

“Let me go! I wanna go get Denzel, he wants me to go get him!”

“Anastasia, Anastasia calm down.. calm down first!” Klaus said.

I pushed him away from me and slapped doctor Hemsworth.. I point my forefinger at him.

“You.. you promised us.. you assured us that he’s gonna come out alive.. then what is this you’re saying now? Huh?”

I pushed him and he staggers back, Klaus quickly grabs me from behind.. refraining me from coming at Hemsworth.

“You’re not qualified to be a doctor! You are a disgrace to doctors! You are a liar! A fraud!”

“Baby calm down, you’re saying so really mean words now!” Klaus said.

I scoffed..

“Mean words?! Really?!” I pushed myself away from him.

I don’t know where I got all this strength, but I seem to be stronger than Klaus today.. he couldn’t hold me down.

“I’m going to buy Denzel’s favorite fruits.. by the time I’m back, I want you to bring my brother out.. alive!”

“Anastasia where…”

I didn’t listen to Klaus, I ran out of the hospital like a mad woman.. I even bumped into some people but I didn’t bother to look back!

To be continued.

Matilda’s pov 👠

LA city hospital…

After spending some hours in traffic, we finally arrived at the hospital.. Marcus parks on a space in the parking lot.

We head for the entrance.

Just when we step into the building, someone bumps into me.. I turned to scold the person but discovered it’s Tasia.

“Tasia….”

I didn’t get to finish my words because Tasia is no longer in sight… I frown.

Why did she run out like a deranged girl? Tasia only runs like this when there’s something troubling her.

I frown…did something bad happened?

“Isn’t that Anna?” Marcus asked.

“Yes, but… ” I trail off wondering what is happening.

“Why did she run out, isn’t she supposed to be here until her brother’s operation is completed?”

Her brother’s operation.. that’s it! Something must have happened?

My eyes grows wide when something dawned on me, I gasp and grip Marcus’s arm.

“Something is wrong! Denzel is in danger!” I said.

Without much thoughts, I wanted to run after her and make sure she’s ok… with the way she ran out, she might do something stupid.

But Marcus pulled me back, I frown at him.

“Why are you pulling me back?” I asked him.

He didn’t reply me, he looked ahead as if he’s staring at someone…I followed his gaze and see Mr Statham rushing towards us.

“Nicky, what’s wrong?” Marcus asked him.

“It’s good you’re here, go to doctor Hemsworth.. aunt Bell passed out, make sure she’s taken care of!” He said in a hurry.

He wanted to rush out but Marcus pulled him back, Mr Statham release an impatient grunt.

“What happened? Why did she passed out? And why did Anna run out in such speed!”

Mr Statham snatched his arm from Marcus, he takes a glance outside.. towards the direction Tasia went not long ago.

“You’ll know once you find doctor Hemsworth!” He replies and rushed out.. he’s rushing after Anastasia, I guess.

We asked for direction to the operating room, we headed there..

When we arrived, Aunt Bell is truly laid on a stretcher and some nurses are pushing her somewhere.

“That must be doctor Hemsworth!” Marcus said pointing at him.

I raised my head and my eyes land on him, he’s resting against a wall and he looked so sad.. he’s taking off his gloves.

His head bows, his shoulders move as if he’s sobbing…I approach him at once.

“Hello, doctor Hemsworth!” I said.

He didn’t raise his head to look at me.. I exchange looks with Marcus, he steps forward.

“Doctor Hemsworth!” He called.

“Don’t! Don’t call me that, I’m not worthy of being a doctor… I’m so useless!” He sobs.

Marcus and I exchange looks again, why is he sobbing?

“I couldn’t save him.. I couldn’t save the child I consider mine.. I’m so useless!” He said.

“Doctor Hemsworth, what happened? Where’s Denzel?” I asked.

He didn’t reply me, he lifts himself off the wall and begin to walk away… but two nurses rushed out of the operating room and stopped him.

“Doctor, what should we do? The boy’s body is still warm!” One of the nurses said.

Doctor Hemsworth doesn’t reply, he simply pushed them out of the way and continue walking away.

“His body is still warm?” I muttered under my breath.

If his body is still warm, is there a possibility he’s not dead? Could it be doctor Hemsworth is too nervous to check properly?

“I told you doctor Hemsworth won’t say a word, let’s take him to the morgue already!” The other nurse said.

I snap my head towards her and glare daggers at her, she takes a step back when she sees my glare.

“Support him with oxygen!” I blurt out.

The nurses looked at me as if I’m mad, they’re wondering who I am to Denzel.

“I’m his elder sister, use oxygen.. quick!” I said, urgency in my voice.

They didn’t behave like they heard me.

“Didn’t you hear her? Is this how you operate in your hospital? It seems you want a bad review… Do what she tells you!” Marcus growls at them.

They nod their heads quickly and rushed back into the operating room… Marcus rubs my shoulder lightly.

“I’ll go check where aunt Bell is taken.. I wanna make sure she’s given proper treatment!”

I nod and watch him leave, I simply stand here… hoping and praying a miracle would happen.

If Denzel eventually dies, Anastasia’s gonna run mad.. she has suffered a lot for that boy.

¢^¢^¢^¢^¢

Anastasia’s pov 👠

I don’t know how long or how far I have run.. I just keep on running, as long as my legs aren’t tired.

Sweat mixed with tears has messed up my face, right now I’m not thinking straight.

Not caring where I’m headed, I continue running…I can hear a honking sound but I’m not seeing any vehicle.

Soon, I feel someone catch me from behind… and pulled me back forcibly.

“Anastasia, are you crazy?! Do you wanna get yourself killed?!” He yelled.

Klaus! It’s him!

“Why did you follow me?!” I asked calmly…but it’s obvious that I’m not calm.

“If I hadn’t followed you, what do you think would have happened just now?”

I push myself off him and wipe my tears furiously.

“I don’t care! Just leave me alone!”

He grabs my hands and drags me to a corner…I snatched my hands away from him.

“You don’t care but I care, Anastasia!”

“You don’t have to care! Don’t care about me, I don’t need your care!”

He grab my shoulders and turn me to face him, he stare in my eyes.

“You’re behaving as if this is the end of every…..”

“Of course, it’s the end!”

He frowns, his eyes move towards the road.

“Is that why you want to end your life? Do you think that’s what Denzel wants you to do?”

Why is he speaking as if Denzel’s dead?! Is he wishing him death?

“Don’t speak as if my brother is dead, he’s not…”

I don’t know if I’m in denial right now… or if it’s actually my wish..and prayer that Denzel is not dead.

“Let me go!” I fight to get away from his tight grip…I turned towards the road again.

I hear another loud honk of a big truck, it’s almost as if it’s calling my name…. Klaus drags me back and points towards the truck.

“Is that something you’d want to run into?” He asked.

I snatch my hand from him.

“It’s better if I run into it, I can’t let all my hard work go to waste! I can’t! Do you know how much I sacrificed?! How you know how many days I starved myself? My brother…..”

Klaus nods and tries to stop me from speaking, but I’m too sad and angry to listen to him.

“He’s lying, Denzel is not dead…not after all we’ve been through together!”

“I know, I know..but come with me let’s go home first!” He said.

I stare at him silently, his eyes held worry..which is something I don’t wanna see…I don’t wanna see anyone looking at me with worry or sympathy!

“You believe in God, right… let’s go back and pray…who knows miracle can happen….”

Miracle?! Isn’t that the only hope aunt held onto till the very last?! Why didn’t any miracle happen since?!

I shake my head. “I don’t need any miracle now…I don’t need it… it’s too late!”

Before he knows it, I’m running away from him again..but this time, I didn’t run towards the road.

I didn’t look back but I know Klaus is running after me.


I don’t know what brought me here, I don’t know how I got here… but I found myself standing outside this big church!

My legs control themselves and starts walking inside, my eyes focused on the statue of Jesus Christ mounted by the altar!

“Aren’t you almighty?! Where’s your power now?!” I asked as I fall on my knees.

Tears keep rolling down my cheeks, footsteps approach me and I knew it’s Klaus.

He’s quietly following me everywhere, I tried to get away from him earlier but I couldn’t.

“You called yourself the son of the living God…” I let out a dry laugh. “… how ridiculous! You can’t even live up to your name! My aunt called on you! I called on you.. but you didn’t do anything!”

I’ve seen it in the movies.. I’ve heard it happening to other people… God always answer whenever they pray.

Why is ours different? Why didn’t he answer when we prayed to him? Is it because our sins are too much?

Or is it because I.. Klaus and I… did it yesterday? I…


“Anna!”

Denzel?! I turned and saw him, he’s staring at me with a smile.

“What are you doing here?” I asked.

He look around, I imitate his action and look around…there are no houses here, all I saw are graves.

“I came home!” He said.

I frown and shake my head.

“No, this is not home! You’re in the wrong place…come with me, I’ll take you home!”

I step forward to grab his hand, but he takes two steps away from me and shake his head disapprovingly.

“No, I wanna go! I really wanna go!”

“You wanna go?” I asked.

He nods.

“Then what about us? Aunt and I, do you wanna leave us here?”

“I…”

“Do you know how much aunt loves you? Do you know how much I love you?”

He stays silent and listens to me, his eyes held hesitation..like he he wanted to stay here…like he loves to stay here.

“Denzel, come home with me, aunt misses you!”

“But I think I’ll like it here…”

“No! You’ll hate it here, there are no delicious food here…no mangoes too.. you’re gonna starve here!”

He stays silent and think.

“Really?”

“Yes, if you come with me, I promise, I’ll cook delicious food for you!”

He stares at me and laugh as if I just said the most funniest joke, he shakes his head in disbelief.

“No! I’d rather stay here!” He said.

Before I can process what’s happened, he runs into the cemetery and tries to lock the gate from inside…but he couldn’t.

He’s fondling with the lock when….

“Denzel” my eyes snap open.

I look around frantically, I realized still inside the church…I’m sitting on a chair next to Klaus.

“Anastasia, are you ok?”

“Where’s Denzel?” I asked.

“Denzel… he’s not here!” He replies.

“Is he awake yet?” I asked anxiously.

He didn’t reply that, he simply take my hands in his and rubs them softly.

“So.. it’s just a dream, he’s really gone!”

After all I’ve suffered, he really left us.

¢^¢^¢^¢^¢

Matilda’s pov 👠

Marcus have checked on aunt Bell, he said she’s fine and all she need is rest..

We’re currently in doctor Hemsworth’s office.. he’s showing Marcus some reports and how the treatment have been going.

We still haven’t seen Denzel’s body, the nurses and his body are still in the operating room.

“He was perfectly fine before we started the operation, I checked and everything was fine…”

Doctor Hemsworth bangs on his desk and runs his fingers through his hair in frustration.

“… I don’t know what went wrong! I don’t understand.. I don’t understand at all”

I wonder what Anastasia is going right now…she’s spent all her life’s saving on Denzel and now…

“Doctor Hemsworth!” A nurse barge into the office.

All heads turns towards her, she tries to balance her breath as she’s breathing heavily.

“We.. we.. there’s a weak heartbeat!”

I sprint up from my chair, doctor Hemsworth and Marcus also get up too.. surprised written on our faces.

I don’t know if I heard her clearly, did she just say there’s a weak heartbeat?!

“There’s what?!” I asked.

“He’s.. the heart monitor is beeping slowly!”

Klaus! It’s him!

“If I hadn’t followed you, what do you think would have happened just now?”

I push myself off him and wipe my tears furiously.

“I don’t care! Just leave me alone!”

He grabs my hands and drags me to a corner…I snatched my hands away from him.

“You don’t care but I care, Anastasia!”

“You don’t have to care! Don’t care about me, I don’t need your care!”

He grab my shoulders and turn me to face him, he stare in my eyes.

“You’re behaving as if this is the end of every…..”

“Of course, it’s the end!”

He frowns, his eyes move towards the road.

“Is that why you want to end your life? Do you think that’s what Denzel wants you to do?”

Why is he speaking as if Denzel’s dead?! Is he wishing him death?

“Don’t speak as if my brother is dead, he’s not…”

I don’t know if I’m in denial right now… or if it’s actually my wish..and prayer that Denzel is not dead.

“Let me go!” I fight to get away from his tight grip…I turned towards the road again.

I hear another loud honk of a big truck, it’s almost as if it’s calling my name…. Klaus drags me back and points towards the truck.

“Is that something you’d want to run into?” He asked.

I snatch my hand from him.

“It’s better if I run into it, I can’t let all my hard work go to waste! I can’t! Do you know how much I sacrificed?! How you know how many days I starved myself? My brother…..”

Klaus nods and tries to stop me from speaking, but I’m too sad and angry to listen to him.

“He’s lying, Denzel is not dead…not after all we’ve been through together!”

“I know, I know..but come with me let’s go home first!” He said.

I stare at him silently, his eyes held worry..which is something I don’t wanna see…I don’t wanna see anyone looking at me with worry or sympathy!

“You believe in God, right… let’s go back and pray…who knows miracle can happen….”

Miracle?! Isn’t that the only hope aunt held onto till the very last?! Why didn’t any miracle happen since?!

I shake my head. “I don’t need any miracle now…I don’t need it… it’s too late!”

Before he knows it, I’m running away from him again..but this time, I didn’t run towards the road.

I didn’t look back but I know Klaus is running after me.


I don’t know what brought me here, I don’t know how I got here… but I found myself standing outside this big church!

My legs control themselves and starts walking inside, my eyes focused on the statue of Jesus Christ mounted by the altar!

“Aren’t you almighty?! Where’s your power now?!” I asked as I fall on my knees.

Tears keep rolling down my cheeks, footsteps approach me and I knew it’s Klaus.

He’s quietly following me everywhere, I tried to get away from him earlier but I couldn’t.

“You called yourself the son of the living God…” I let out a dry laugh. “… how ridiculous! You can’t even live up to your name! My aunt called on you! I called on you.. but you didn’t do anything!”

I’ve seen it in the movies.. I’ve heard it happening to other people… God always answer whenever they pray.

Why is ours different? Why didn’t he answer when we prayed to him? Is it because our sins are too much?

Or is it because I.. Klaus and I… did it yesterday? I…


“Anna!”

Denzel?! I turned and saw him, he’s staring at me with a smile.

“What are you doing here?” I asked.

He look around, I imitate his action and look around…there are no houses here, all I saw are graves.

“I came home!” He said.

I frown and shake my head.

“No, this is not home! You’re in the wrong place…come with me, I’ll take you home!”

I step forward to grab his hand, but he takes two steps away from me and shake his head disapprovingly.

“No, I wanna go! I really wanna go!”

“You wanna go?” I asked.

He nods.

“Then what about us? Aunt and I, do you wanna leave us here?”

“I…”

“Do you know how much aunt loves you? Do you know how much I love you?”

He stays silent and listens to me, his eyes held hesitation..like he he wanted to stay here…like he loves to stay here.

“Denzel, come home with me, aunt misses you!”

“But I think I’ll like it here…”

“No! You’ll hate it here, there are no delicious food here…no mangoes too.. you’re gonna starve here!”

He stays silent and think.

“Really?”

“Yes, if you come with me, I promise, I’ll cook delicious food for you!”

He stares at me and laugh as if I just said the most funniest joke, he shakes his head in disbelief.

“No! I’d rather stay here!” He said.

Before I can process what’s happened, he runs into the cemetery and tries to lock the gate from inside…but he couldn’t.

He’s fondling with the lock when….

“Denzel” my eyes snap open.

I look around frantically, I realized still inside the church…I’m sitting on a chair next to Klaus.

“Anastasia, are you ok?”

“Where’s Denzel?” I asked.

“Denzel… he’s not here!” He replies.

“Is he awake yet?” I asked anxiously.

He didn’t reply that, he simply take my hands in his and rubs them softly.

“So.. it’s just a dream, he’s really gone!”

After all I’ve suffered, he really left us.

Matilda’s pov 👠

Marcus have checked on aunt Bell, he said she’s fine and all she need is rest..

We’re currently in doctor Hemsworth’s office.. he’s showing Marcus some reports and how the treatment have been going.

We still haven’t seen Denzel’s body, the nurses and his body are still in the operating room.

“He was perfectly fine before we started the operation, I checked and everything was fine…”

Doctor Hemsworth bangs on his desk and runs his fingers through his hair in frustration.

“… I don’t know what went wrong! I don’t understand.. I don’t understand at all”

I wonder what Anastasia is going right now…she’s spent all her life’s saving on Denzel and now…

“Doctor Hemsworth!” A nurse barge into the office.

All heads turns towards her, she tries to balance her breath as she’s breathing heavily.

“We.. we.. there’s a weak heartbeat!”

I sprint up from my chair, doctor Hemsworth and Marcus also get up too.. surprised written on our faces.

I don’t know if I heard her clearly, did she just say there’s a weak heartbeat?!

“There’s what?!” I asked.

“He’s.. the heart monitor is beeping slowly!”
