Read Story: SEASON 2 EPISODE 21
“Diana you should call mother now.” I said lifting Enoch over my shoulders. I rushed out of the house and Diana followed behind with her phone.
“She would be at the hospital as soon as possible.” She said and I nodded stopping a taxi.
“The nearest hospital.” I said placing Enoch gently at the back before sitting. Diana too the front seat.
I placed his hand on my laps, his shirt was stained with his blood and so was mine. I tried so hard not to cry because I was tired of crying.
“He will be fine Isaac. Your Brother will be okay.” Diana said from the front seat and I nodded smiling, holding his face in mine.
“Diana if anything goes wrong with him, I swear I will kill anyone behind this.” I said in anger and she nodded.
“Don’t worry. Nothing will go wrong.” Diana said.
We got the hospital and I climbed down the car with Enoch in my hand. Diana ran into the hospital to get the nurses, and they came rushing to us with a stretcher.
They placed him on the stretcher and pushed him inside with great speed. I followed behind them and when they got to the
Emergency Unit, I was stopped.
“Please let me in.” I said to the nurse staring at Enoch as they pushed him in, putting some tubes on him already.
“You can’t go in.” She said entering the door.
“He is my brother and he needs me right now. I have never being there for him before, please let me be now.” I said and the nurse paused.
“Get a garment. And a glove.” She said pointing to the right side. I saw the robe and gloves, I picked them up and wore then in haste, including the hair cap.
“You are not to go close to him during the operation. Maybe your presence would help him fight stronger.” She said and I nodded.
“Thank you so much Nurse.” I said looking back at Diana.
“Don’t worry, I will be fine here. Go help your brother.” She said smiling and I nodded walking into the ward with the nurse and she drew the curtain over the door.
“Stay here. The lights are dim here, you won’t be seen on time. Please don’t come out of here, I am not supposed to do this but I had to seeing you that way.” She said and I nodded standing at the corner.
“Thank you so much.” I said with my eyes fixed on Enoch. The nurse left my side to Enoch and they began to do their thing.
More tears dropped down my eyes as I watched him lay lifeless and totally unhelpful on the bed. And the most annoying thing is that I don’t know what to do to help. I was as useless as Enoch.
I kept my watery eyes opened staring at them. There was a monitor next to them. It had this sound that I really didn’t understand but the doctors were calm with it. So I guessed it wasn’t a bad thing.
I cleaned my tears and looked up again and this time the doctors were looking restless. I wanted to go to them but then I knew that I would be jeopardizing the work of the nurse that helped me.
I watched him carefully and when the noise from the Monitor changed I was so scared and wanted to grab him and hug him not to go but I was stock, I couldn’t.
Soon, they began to hit his chest with some sort of….. I don’t know. It raised him up severally but his eyes were still shut.
Then the noise of the Monitor changed and this time it wasn’t a beeping down. I sighed in relieve and just when I thought everything was okay, they pulled up the cloth over his face.
“Wait!! What is going on!!! He won’t be able to breathe well. Let him go.” I said running to Enoch but they held me in the process.
“You are not supposed to be here.
” The doctors said.
“Does that matter now? The cloth should be at the neck or chest level, not here! He won’t be able to breathe.” I said in tears.
“Get him out of here.” They said and two of them grabbed me and moved me out.
“Let me go! I need to see my brother!” I yelled in tears.
“Isaac.” I heard someone call. I looked back and then I saw Danielle in tears.
“Mother.” I called running to her and hugging her tightly.
“Mother they covered his…. His face… With the sheet…. I told then he won’t breathe well but they…. Chased me outside.” I stammered in tears.
“Isaac calm down. I know you were terrified, but don’t worry. It will be fine.” She said moving my hair backwards and kissing my forehead.
“Where are the parents?” The doctors asked interrupting us.
“I, it’s me.” Mother said.
“Let’s see in my office.” He said and I shook my head.
“No she is not going to the office. I am his brother and this is my girlfriend, we are all family. So let’s get this over with.” I said and mother nodded for him to go on.
“Ma’am your son ate a poisonous chocolate. It was a very concentrated one, half of his inner part was damaged before you brought him here.” He said and tears rolled down our eyes.
“So what happened?” I asked in a shaky voice trying not to freak out.
“We lost him.” He said and I began to gasp trying to process what he said.
“You what?” Mother asked moving down slowly.
“Mom!” I yelled grabbing her.
“She is unconscious Isaac.” Diana said in tears.
“Do something!” I said grabbing the doctor. The nurses Came out and took her into another ward.
“I am going to kill him!” I said running out of the ward.
“Kill who!” Diana asked but I ignored her.
