“I’m sorry, we tried our best but his heart stopped beating.” The doctor announced and Claire immediately touched her chest hardly, wincing before she finally pass out.
“Claire! Claire!! Hey!” Hunter tapped the body that fell on him severally. “Doctor, take care of her. Can I see the boy In his ward?”
“Of course. But later. We need to Clean him up first.” They took care Claire and led Hunter to sit at the reception.
Hours later, a nurse came back and told him Claire is fine now and she’s claiming to see her brother right away.
“Don’t take her to him yet. She might pass out again.” Hunter responded and the nurse dismissed herself.
Hunter took his phone amd dialed his assistant’s phone number. Peter.
“Peter.” He called In his baritone voice. So thick.
“Yes sir? Actually, I came to your office but didn’t see you. You didn’t tell me you left the office already. Do you want me to do anything for you?” Answered Peter.
“Nothing much. Cancel all my schedules for today and tomorrow. I won’t be coming to the office. No questions. Bye.” He hung up and dropped the phone back to its place.
He called one of the nurses to take him to Jason’s ward.
“Oh my!” Hunter exclaimed at the sight in his front. The different device on the boy’s body were going to fifteen. He walked closer and drew the sheet that was used in covering Jason’s dead body.
“Why did you leave your sister alone in this world?” He asked. He didn’t know why he’s actually talking to the body. He didn’t even know the boy. “Do you know how much your sister wants you to get up from that bed and be healthy again? She went through pains. She isn’t in her right state of mind mow cause this is what you use to repay all her kindness to you. Argh! I don’t know why I’m saying all this but it seems it’s for the best.” Hunter concluded and just as he was about to stand up, the machine beeped and he felt his finger being tightened. It was Jason holding his finger so tight.
“Don’t go, brother.” He heard him whisper.
