Escape To Paradise
(CHAPTER 2 CONTD)
e doctor finally looked at Tristan after some minutes of examination ” Guzman , whats wrong ”He asked the doctor noticing the disturbing look the doctor gave him ” Tristan, she is not looking good , Im am afraid to say but , she doesn have much time ” The doctor said ”time …. what time are you talking about , I dont understand ” He asked looking seriously confused ” well you see…. ” The doctor was about to finish his sentence when malia stirred in her sleep ” Ill just get back to you , Ill prescribe some medications for her and Ill have someone bring it to you ” He said and took the exit .
Malia was fully awake , she saw the doctor and Tristan having a serious conversation and she already guessed what happened ” Tristan , Im sick ” she said before he could even ask ” what sickness ” He asked ” leukaemia ” she said in more of a whisper . Hearing this , tristan turned to look at her ” does your family know? ” he asked focusing his gaze directly on her ”no ” she said in one breath wiping the single tear that dropped from her eyes ” look I completely understand if you dont want a sick woman around you , Ill understand I swear I will….. ” she was about to finish her sentence when he cut her off ” how have you been surviving? ” he asked in a much lower tone . Malia could feel goosebumps appearing on her skin , she had never seen anyone that angry , she was a kind of person that didn move with people so she had never seen the wrath of anger of any body , being the first time she had ever seen anything like this , it was like the ground will open and just swallow her up . she hesitated for a while before answering ” some pills ” she replied cutting her eye contact with him because she really didnt like what she was seeing, she thought this man was much nicer, but, he is damn mysterious , He was even more angry than she was.
Tristan couldn withhold the anger burning inside of him ,He was not at all angry with her but with those people who treated her worthlessly .
” Tristan, you heard the doctor right, there is no hope for me , Im going to die sooner or later ” she said even if he hurt her deeply ,Her father had also died of this sickness so she was preety sure that she wouldn survive , even If it killed her to know that she didn have much time left , she had already come to terms with it . She didn want to mention it to anyone because she didnt want anyone especially her mother to worry unnecessarily about her .
Tristan walked towards her , He slid the remaining strands of hair falling on her face behind her ears ” I promise , you will survive ” He said and turned to leave ” stay…. dont go ” with her tiny hands , she grabbed his wrist. He nodded and sat beside her and watched her drift to sleep ”You have committed no sin to deserve all this , I will do everything thing in my power to help you in any way I can , those monsters will regret what they have done to you ”He said .
