You felt really depressed on your way home.
You tried your best to save your patient, but you just couldn't do it.
Your husband, on the other hand, was at home, humming along to his favorite song, shaking his hips while getting some vegetables from the fridge.
He was so excited to see you that it made him feel so giddy inside.
He heard the front door open and he immediately rushed out of the kitchen, leaving the vegetables he was chopping for dinner, to go greet you.
"Welcome home, ba- by.." He's smiling face soon turned into a frown once he saw you crying while removing you coat.
He quickly enveloped you in a hug, not minding the tears that was soaking up his shirt.
"I- I.. I couldn't save them.. they died.. in my care.. I couldn't save them.." You sobbed into his chest, recalling the deafening prolonged beep of the heart monitor, indicating a patient's death.
He didn't say anything back, letting his actions do all the talking by patting your back and allowing you to let it all out.
He cupped your face and made you look at him.
"Shh.. it's okay baby.. everything's okay. Hm.. do you believe in angels?" He smiled, wiping the tears on your cheeks with his thumbs.
"Yeah... how 'bout you?" You sniffled.
"Of course! I'm looking at one right now!" He smiled at you.
You just chuckled in response.
"You know, there was probably an invisible angel that had a talk with your patient." He continued, sitting you down on the couch.
""Hey you! The patient of the loveliest and most gorgeous (your name)! Could you maybe direct me back home? I'm kinda lost." The angel asked sheepishly.
"Sure! Where do you live?" Your patient asked.
"I live somewhere up there! Here, I'll give you some wings so that you could fly with me." The angel replied as she gave your patient some wings.
And so they flew, and flew, until their feet landed on the clouds, where the angel's home was.
The angel thanked your patient and told them that they could go back down.
However, your patient found the angel's home, very beautiful, so they asked the angel if they could live with her.
"What about your life down there?" She asked.
"Well I've already tried living there. I wanna try living here too!" Your patient said." Your husband narrated, as if he was telling a story to a child.
"So, your patient isn't really dead. They're just living with the angel for now. They're gonna come back here soon." He reassured, caressing your cheek with his thumb.
"That's a beautiful way to explain death, (his name).. where'd you learn that?" You chuckled.
"Well.. maybe I was practicing how to answer some deep questions our future kids might ask." He smiled sheepishly.
"You want kids?" You teased.
"W- well yeah.. but if you don't want to, then I don't wanna force it." He shrugged.
"Aww I was only teasing hon. But we'll have to plan first before we do, okay?" You smiled while rubbing his arm.
"Of course.. I don't want my baby to be tired." He said while leaning in to kiss your cheek.
He couldn't wait.
