"every breath gives birth to deepers sighs,

and for a moment I am weak

so it's hard for me to speak,

it's heavy on my heart, i can't make it alone,

so come and free me,

it's so heavy on my heart..."

Track for this chapter: heavy on my heart- Anatacia

Jillian's P.O.V:

I was having breakfast, when Kalon called to inform me there is a new doctor who volunteered to be on our staff. I was thrilled to say the least! The more staff the merrier! He told me he thinks that this one is 'more than capable'. Coming from Kalon I had to make sure myself.

I took my jeep and headed towards the clinic. The weather was kinder and more pleasant today. I had a couple of prescriptions to fill and a shipment coming from Germany. Being associated with the UN makes prospects of medical equipment more encouraging. Also I had a pregnant local woman that I asked to kindly drop by so I can give her prenatal vitamins and folic acid.

I loved the life I was currently living-despite that one missing piece-I smiled more often, turned the radio louder than ever, danced more-that's where Kalon is more than happy to oblige-I cook more, and eat more, and to me this routine has made me the happier than I have ever been. Nobody is completely and utterly happy, we can only be sufficiently happy with what we have; content and grateful.

Bailando was blasting the radio, and my incoherent humming and occasional yelping of the word of 'bailando' were the only signs of familiarity of the song. My failed attempt of dancing Latin while driving further explains Kalon's point that I am 'tone deaf', that bastard. He has become such a dear lately, and living under the same roof has made things for me bearable. He has truly contributed to my recovery. He has my gratitude, always.

I arrived at the clinic, parked my jeep grabbed my papers and bag, and entered to see Kalon just before my office, he wants something.

"Good morning darling." He said as he embraced me. I returned his warm welcome.

"Good morning to you too chipper. Up and early I see, as glad as I am to see you in such mood and early, especially early, I have to wonder, why? You want my jeep again? Impressing a local again?" I said as I giggled, I knew him too well.

"Darling you wound me", while placing his hand on his chest, "I request nothing. Well until Saturday that is." He winked, "the good doctor is right in your office awaiting you. He seems quite capable, his credentials speak for him."

"Yes I know, you told me, like a million times. I get it the guy is good."

"Oh you will realize how good he is", lowering the volume of his voice, babbling fool. "I cooked yesterday, your turn missy, and don't avoid it either, health care specialists should be people of their word." He said with a mock superiority, smirking as he always does.

Still caught up by the first sentence, "Kalon what do you mean? FINE I'll cook tonight you jerk!" and I started to enter my office, giggling like a child, I hope this doesn't lessen the strength of authority. Meh.

A gust, a swivel, and a spin.

I am taken aback by the person that is present in front of me, in confide of my small office. This can't be happening. He can't be here. He isn't here. I escaped him, he can't be here. I let him be, why is he here? What is happening? How did he know I was here?

I felt my heart beating faster than ever; I break into I-just-exercised-sweat. He is breathing the air I need. I am paralyzed by his shocked expression. He is as handsome as ever. I did not know whether to laugh at divine providence or cry because of cruel fate.
