☔ episode sixteen ☔

🍇 Cross’s pov 🍇
She suddenly broke the kiss and faced me….

“I’m sorry” she said, fidgeting..

“There’s nothing to be sorry for, I love you” I replied …

“I’m…..I just need some air” she said and I left the kitchen….

💎 Wendy’s pov 💎
He left and I felt relieved…

I’m going crazy right now, I’ve never been so confused all my life and I can’t seem to be able to get myself together…

I made the omelette and served him, he ate silently, staring at me although…

It’s 7pm already and it’s stopped raining…

He escorted me to the bustop where I took a bus back to the hotel,

Tonia is in our room already….

“I enjoyed myself today, Francis has grown more handsome than I can remember, I just fell for him over and over again” she poured as I sat on the bed and took off my shoes…

“Sure, your heart must have found the one” I said tiredly….

“Oh dear, I’ll be happy if that should be the case, I’m so tired” she said and yawned heavily…

“You know the right person might not come at the right time but once they come, we should always pray for the chance to be able to keep them so We’ll not lose them forever, even if they’ve done something terrible in the past, if you’re meant for each other,….no qualms, you’re gonna end up together, that’s if you’re clever enough to keep him” I said, staring into space but Tonia is not answering…

I looked at her and she’s already dozing off on the bed….

“Badass” I wishpered before covering her with the duvet…

I think it’s time to sleep for me too….

💎💍💎

The next morning, we both woke up early and dressed up after taking our bath…

Today’s Cross’s transplant and we need to see him off…

We went to the hospital straight and he’s already on the stretcher, ready to be taken to the theatre for the transplant…

I can see the look of fear on his face as he lay down helplessly on the stretcher…

I held his hand and he’s shaking profusely…

“Cross, don’t be scared, everything will be ok, remember I told you to be optimistic, just trust your luck, ok?, Fighting!!!” I said and he smiled…

“Nuthead, just know that everything will be alright, ok?” Tonia said and pinched his cheeks before he was taken to the theatre…

We waited anxiously for almost three hours at the reception before doc came out, all smiles…

“The transplant went well, he’ll soon be moved back to the ward but….

“But what?” I and Tonia asked simultaneously…

“Calm down, what I was trying to say is that he’ll need food when he wakes up” doctor said, smiling…

“You scared us, buts are not pleasant to hear in hospitals” Tonia said…

We saw the stretcher he was carried on as he was moved to the ward….

“He’ll wake up two hours later when the blood circulation becomes normal again” doctor said and we went his ward…

He was lying handsomely on the bed, eyes closed, hands on both sides

Someone entered, a middle aged man…

“Hello girls, I’m Mr Michael, Cross’s godfather, I’m the one he’s staying with in California” he said

“Oh, good afternoon sir” I and Tonia greeted simultaneously…

“Hope the transplant went well?” He asked unsettled…

“Sure, he’ll wake up soon” Tonia answered…

I think his phone ranged in his pocket and he went out to pick it…

“Something seems weird about him” I said…

“I knew it, he seems unsettled and looking at him gives me the creeps” Tonia said…

“Oh, we should stop watching those detective movies, we’re gradually turning to Sherlock” I said and Tonia giggled…

“Well, let me go get what he’ll eat when he wakes up” I said and stood up to go…

“Remember, it mustn’t be greasy food, get him something like noodles” Tonia said…

“I know, I’ll be right back” I said as I went out….

I got noodles in a nearby restaurant and as went back to the hospital, in one of the restrooms, I started hearing conversation, the voice sounds like that of the weird Mr Michael..I decided to listen…

I think he’s on the phone with someone…

📲 Just blast the bomb ten minutes from now……..yes, he’s in this hospital, I’ve confirmed it…..I don’t care about the other people in the hospital, if I have to get rid of them too in the process of killing Cross, then so be it…….I won’t even be suspected, was I suspected when I sent assasins to kill his dad?…….yes, Same with this one, if I can kill him, I can take over their properties since he’s the only one left…..no qualms, just blast the bomb ten minutes from now and let him die with other millions of people in this hospital…..

My heart almost jumped out of my mouth as I listened….my adrenaline shot into action immediately, I have to get cross and everyone out….

I ran blindly to the ward and I found only Cross there, he’s woken up already…

“Where’s Tonia?” I asked…

“She went to the restroom” he answered..

“Oh my gosh, how am I gonna handle this?, The hospital will be bombed nine minutes from now” I said…

“What are you talking about?” He asked confusedly…

“No time to explain right now, let’s get outta here” I said as I removed his drip from where it was hanged, i placed him gently on the stretcher and stole a nurse gown, I put it on quickly to avoid questions and took him out of the hospital, I brought him outside the gate where he’s safe…

“Please stay here, lemme go rescue the remaining ones” I said and ran back inside…

I went to the public address system that reaches the whole hospital…

“Please everyone get out of this hospital, it will be bombed in five minutes!” I shouted…

No one seems to be moving…

“This hospital will be bombed in five minutes, everyone run for your lives!!” I shouted again and some started moving…

“Four minutes remaining, if you love your life, please run out of the hospital before it will be bombed!!!!” I shouted more loudly this time around, my voice box must have bursted….

Everyone started running Helter skelter, trying to get out of the hospital…

I and the nurses helped some mothers and some pregnant women out, some that just put to bed, some badly injured patients that I can help, doctor Vic even helped…

Then one minute left, I had to run out of the hospital too with tears in my eyes cos there are still many people to be rescued but no time…..

I ran out blindly and that’s when I remembered….”Tonia”

I looked around but she’s nowhere to be found among the crowd….

I made to run back inside the hospital but it exploded…. right before my eyes…..with the hundreds of people that are still inside…..it burned to ashes….. where’s Tonia?

Hot tears fell from my eyes as I sat down and cried bitterly…. looking at the burning hospital…

I suddenly stood up and went to where I had put Cross but….. he’s not there again….I just saw the stretcher but he’s nowhere to be found…..I searched frantically but I can’t find him….then I sat on the bare ground again and cried for the uptenth time….

“Where’s Tonia?, And where is cross?”…..

TBC…

Tough, right???
