“I dislike him but he is still my father and my mum really loves him”Naeto said,blinking back his tears.Jessica squeezed his hand,not saying a word,giving him room to pour out his feelings. His father was in the hospital,battling for his life;he had suffered a heart attack earlier that day.Even if Naeto pretended to dislike his father,deep down he still loved and cared for him,he was just finding it hard to forgive past grievances. “You know sometimes I wondered what it will feel like if he died”Naeto smiled bitterly,”And now…” she interrupted him,”He’s not going to die,okay?He’s going to fight it and you’ll see him again”she consoled him. She didn’t know what it was like to lose a loved one,so she couldn’t fully share his pain. “You’ll be fine,he’ll be fine”she whispered. He turned and bowed his head on her shoulder,allowing his tears drop freely.It touched her,seeing him so vulnerable and in that moment,she felt a great urge to protect him,to shield him from the evil of the world and keep him safe.
