When I woke up I was hoping Tyson would be in the bed that was set up for him next to me, nevertheless to my disappointment the bed was still empty. I tried telling myself that he will be with me soon however it didn’t seem to help much, as every time I told myself he will be here I had a bad feeling go through me.
I heard the door to my room opening snapping me away from my thoughts. Tamara and Cameron came walking in with big smiles on their faces, I wish that could be Tyson and me, I thought to myself. “Hey” I greeted them wearing my new fake smile. ”Hey” they both replied. “Talita, how did you enjoy your alone time with lover boy yesterday?” Tamara said with a big smirk and wiggling her eyebrows. I couldn’t hold the fake smile anymore and started to cry. “I miss him so much Tamara; I know I never believed in love” I stopped as I began to cry harder. ”Oh Tali,” Tamara said while giving me a big hug, I cried into her chest for I don’t know how long but as soon as I managed to get control of my tears .”Tamara; I love him” I told her with all my heart. She hugged me tighter and said “I no, Talita I no you do.”
I could not believe how well she took it, as usually she would go mad.
However, when I looked up I noticed that Cameron was still here, I could see Tamara looking over to see what I was looking at. Her face became redder than a tomato was it was so funny I couldn’t help but laugh at her. Still laughing I looked over towards Cameron and his face was even redder, if that was possible, I was now holding my sides as I was laughing so much. I could see the two of them getting mad at me laughing, but I couldn’t help myself, it was just too funny. I wish I had a camera right now, I thought to myself. I could see Tamara’s face starting to soften; I knew she could not stay mad at me for long. I managed to stop laughing, well sort of until Tamara looked at me, and then we both burst out laughing again. It felt so good to be able to laugh well that was until my mum came bursting through the door with a worried look on her face. ”Mum what’s wrong?” I asked as her expression was really starting to worry me. My mum didn’t reply she just looked from Cameron to Tamara and then back to me. I could see her eyes where watering up and I was now becoming mad with her. ”MUM SPIT IT OUT YOUR SCARING ME” I shouted at her. That seemed to snap her back from where ever she was as she looked at me with sympathy. “Oh baby it is “ then she burst open crying leaving me even more puzzled, I was getting so angry with her but at the same time worried if she was alright. “It’s Tyson” then she sobbed more. I began getting frustrated because in one way, I wanted to hug her but I could not walk over to her because of my stupid legs, and then on the other hand I just needed her to tell me what was going on.
After me screaming out her for a few minutes she finally started to speak, “They have had to put Tyson back into a semi coma as last night he took a turn for the worst “. My body froze up as my mum told me; it was as if my body and my brain were on complete different wavelengths. I couldn’t move as my whole body became numb I kept going over in my head what my mum had just told me before I blacked out.
I stood there shocked as Talita’s mum told us about Tyson. Looking over at Talita I seen her body tense up then within seconds she had blacked out. I pressed the emergency buzzer to call the nurse’s as Tamara and Talita’s mum where just standing there frozen none of them moved at all. Nurses and Doctors came rushing into the room pushing us all out of the way, I grabbed onto both of them and pushed them towards the door so the doctors could have more space. Standing outside Talita’s room was Shanti and Chennel then looking further down the corridor I spotted Ashton.
I held on to Tamara’s hand and whispered into her ear “baby I am going to check on Tyson with Ashton”. I could see her beginning to panic so I placed a kiss onto her lips,” baby your friends are here now everything will be ok, I really need to check on Tyson,” I told her honestly. She just nodded before she ran to her friends and they all started hugging each other.
Catching up with Ashton, we took the lift up to Tyson’s floor. Along the way, Ashton managed to fill me in more on Tyson condition before the lift dinged to let us no it is our floor. The lump in throat was making it hard for me to breath I stopped outside Tyson’s room as I tried calming myself down as I knew the last thing his mother needed right now was me being a wreak.
