Claire looks so sad and sick, is she sad or what?
“Miss Claire? Are you okay? “I asked touching her forehead
“What is wrong with the miss Claire thing? “She asked instead
“Oh I am sorry Claire “I apologize
“its ok, I am fine”she answered
“You don’t look fine to me, your body temperature is high and you are shivering at the same time you are burning up “I said getting afraid
“Don’t worry I am fine “she managed to say
“Really? You are fine? I am not taking that from you, I am calling the doctor right away so give me your doctor’s digit “I said bringing out my phone.
I don’t want any doctor coming here, I came here to cool my nerves and not to be hold down on the sick bed.
I need to do something, I really need to distract Richard from collecting the doctor’s number, but what should I do?
“Richard please I don’t need a doctor please, I am allergy to drugs please don’t call the doctor “I said pouting
“So what is your plan? Will you be okay if I let you be? “He asked me with a serious face
“Yes I will, a little massage with warm water can do the work, so let me do it “I said trying to stand to my feet but I loss balance and fell but luckily for me I was caught by Richard, we stared into each others eyes and something kept drawing me closer to him for God sake this is my assistant and not some random guy.
I don’t do my workers never, but his eyes is telling me something different, they look so familiar and so emotional, what could be going through his mind now?
Is he feeling the same way? Is this a mutual feelings? I am so hot inside me the chemistry between us reminds me of my crush my one time crush that took my heart away, he made me heartless “I thought to my self
“Claire? Are you okay? “Richards voice came through
“Uhummm… Yea… I. Am”I said stammering
“Are You sure because the expression on your face suddenly turned cold, sad and confused, is there anything I should know? Who knows I might have a solution or some advice “he said and smiled
“Oh god not again, his smile is always cute this guy really always reminds me of my crush “I said to my self looking at his every move.
But why did she suddenly turned cold, is there anything that is bothering her?
She looked at me so suspiciously as if something is trying to tell her some thing about me, I hope I am safe.
“Let me go get you the water with towel “I said letting go of her waist
I came back minutes later with the water and she insisted on massaging her self
For Christ sake who does that?
I decided to let her do it her own way but some minutes later she started screaming, I ran back to see her holding her leg
“What is wrong with you? “I asked
“Get me the first aid box please “she yelled
“Ok “I answered running and I later remembered that I don’t know where it is, I turned running back to her
“Richard please hurry, it’s in the drawer in my room “she said amidst tears
I took to my heels and return like a flash with the box and knelt down blowing air to it, her legs was torn because she rubbed it when the water touched her, I clean it with spirit first and she scream in pains, I made sure that I applied every thing I saw in the box, I don’t know what I am applying but all what I know is that it will help her.
After cleaning and applying everything on the wound I plastered it before I finished it Claire was already sleeping peacefully, she looks so beautiful even in her sleep dried tears were seen on her face and her hair scattered covering half of her face.
“Should I take her to her room? Maybe I should just let her sleep here “I said to my self.
I tidied up the place and returned the box to her room, I came back and carried her carefully making sure that nothing comes in contact with the wounded place, I placed her gently on the sofa
“I will watch over her still she wakes up “I told my self retrieving my phone from my pocket, I think my phone will keep me company till she wakes up.
Hours later, she started moving and jerking
“What is wrong with her? “I asked my self
I stood up running to her she is calling someone’s name but no matter how I tried so hard to understand what she was saying I still couldn’t hear her
“Is she traumatized by some bad memories? “I asked my self
She was saying something and tears dropped from her eyes
I held her hands tightly trying to calm her down
“You don’t have to cry dear, I am here for you, I am back to stay and I won’t leave you again never please come back to me “i said squeezing her hands and she became calm, she slowing opened her eyes
I opened my eyes to meet Richard’s eyes on me and his hand held mine
“What happened? “I asked him
“Nothing is just that you had a nightmare so I helped you out “Richard answered trying to redraw his hand from mine but I didn’t let him do that.
“Richard I had a dream but someone said something to me were you the person that talked to me? “I asked him hoping he says he is the one
“no I only held your hands to calm you, I didn’t say anything to you but I tried understanding you when you were talking in your dreams but I couldn’t get you and you cried “Richard said sharply
“But why did I hear someone talk to me? the voice was so clear and it was like yours “I tried convincing my self that he should be my crush..
I can’t tell her the truth, who knows what she might do the next minute, she might beat the living day light out of me and send me packing, I can’t take that I don’t want to loose her again not now, I won’t be able to take the pains I know I have hurt her and I will never do it the second time again I must make sure that she falls in love with me all over again, she must not know its me.
