Narrator's Pov

His expression showed how painful it was to wait. She's alive, her pulse is working but there was no sign of her waking up. If he was a tad late, it could've been much worse than her state is right now.

"Izeiah" once again he feel her pulse and it was definitely moving.

"Green!" He shouted. He heard hus footsteps. He was dripping wet but he couldn't even pay attention to himself.

"What are you waiting for? Go get the Young Master a towel." Green ordered and quickly got near him. His eyes went wide upon seeing Izeiah lie in his arms, unconscious.

"What happened?" Mabilis na tanong ni Green. Napansin naman nito ang pink na plastic na nagflo-float sa pool. Tiningnan nito ang aquarium at muntik ng mapasapo sa noo sa nakita. Lahat ng mga pagkain ni Pink ay pinuno ang aquarium. Brown na ang kulay instead of blue.

"Imposibleng nahulog siya sa pagpapakain kay Pink." Izeiah can be sometimes ignorant to somethings. But she's definitely a genius who needs to sort out her common sense.

"Where is the fucking maid?!" Galit na tanong niya kay Green. Naalarma naman ito at muling tinawag ang inutusan niya kanina at mukhang nakatunog naman ito at wala pang isang minuto ay nasa harapan na nila siya.

Ivan wrapped her body with the fluffy towel and carried her inside. Mukhang ngayon lang nila napansin ang nangyari. Hindi makapaniwala si Riley sa nakikita. Izeiah was lying unconscious.

"Anong nangyare?" Mabilis itong nakapunta kung saan sila.

"She almost drowned." Ivan answered and brought her closer to her chest.

"Is the room all ready?" Tanong niya kay Green, tumango naman ito.

"Tawagan ko ang doctor." Sabi ni Blue at tumayo para kunin ang phone niya.

"Where is the room?"

"Second floor, 3rd room." Tumayo si Ivan at pumunta sa sinabi ni Green. Hindi alam kung anong gagawin ni Riley kaya sumunod ito kay Ivan habang si Green eh lumabas para investigate'in ang swimming pool.

"Riley, watch over her while I go downstairs to talk to Blue." Tumango naman si Riley at hindi nagtanong.

"I'll take care of her." Mahinang sabi nito. Lumabas na si Ivan.

"Zeah, paanong kahit dito namagnet mo ang gulo?" Napasentido nalang si Riley dahil hindi makapaniwala sa nangyari sakanya.

"Pati si Lovey doves mo nagtataka na yata kung paano mo naaattract ang gulo sa loob ng maliit na oras. Believe din ako sayo." She was strictly told by Ivan to not remove a single piece of clothing off her. Though, it looks really cold wearing those wet clothes with only a fluffy towel and blanket to warm her body up, she couldn't do anything given the fact that she was not allowed to change her into a much comfortable clothes.

Nagulat nalang si Riley sa biglang pagbukas ng pintuan dahil sa kakatitig kay Izeiah.

"Out." Simpleng sabi ni Ivan. Nakita niya itong merong hawak hawak na puting tshirt at bagong towel. At merong blower at pulbo.

"Hindi ba mas-appropriate kung ako ang gagawa ng mga iyan" sabi ni Riley at itinuro ang hawak hawak niya. Sinamaan lang siya ng tingin ni Ivan. Itinaas naman ni Riley ang kamay niya na parang sumusuko.

"Geez, kung sinabi mo lang sana na gusto mong hawakan siya hindi na sana ako nagtanong pa." Sabi nito bago umalis. Tumaas naman kilay ni Ivan at sinabing--

"That dirty minded--" he stopped when Izeiah stirred. Mabilis itong nakalapit sakanya.

"Izeiah?" But there was no hint of her waking up. He just sighed. He brought two large tshirts that was his own. He put on the first one and he tried to work his hands underneath the large tshirt, cutting all the clothes she had on before and pulling it out after. The tshirt quickly got wet so he put on the second one over her and then cut the wet tshirt inside then pulled it out.

Pinaupo niya siya sa baba ng kama habgn umupo siya sa kama. He had to support her head as she was unconscious and the head isn't keeping still. He turned on the blower and started drying her hair. Her hair is soft and her scent was all over the place. He loved it.

He ended up cuddling with her when he finished drying her hair. He smelt her hair, the chlorine didn't linger on her hair maybe the rain washed it away but her natural smell stayed.

"Izeiah--- wake up." He silently beg but there was no reply. They don't know why she's not waking up. It's like she's dead but breathing. Like in a coma but she was only drowned she was suppose to wake up after getting the water out of her system.

There was a sudden knock.

"Ivan, nandito na ang doctor. Do you want to quit snuggling Izeiah?" Sabi ni Green sa labas ng pintuan. Walang hiya talaga iyon talagang sinilip ang CCTV. Napailing nalang siya at tumayo na.

"You can enter." Sabi niya.

"But don't touch her." Sabi ni Ivan na nagpalingon sa kanyang mga kasama.

"Ivan, how can they examine her if they don't touch her?" Confuse na sabi ni Green.

"Heed my warning and simply don't touch her then all will be fine."

"Kailangan niyang makita kung ano ang nangyari sakanya. Paano nila masasabi sa iyo kung na paano itong batang ito?"

Tumaas kilay ni Ivan.

"You simply observe and tell me what happened to her."

"That's not how they work for god's sake! They get near the patient, feel their pulse, ask them questions. Oh god." Napaface palm nalang si Green.

"Don't touch her." Tiim bagang sabi ni Ivan at hindi na pinansin si Green na malapit ng mabunot ang kanyang buhok.

"Then examine her, genius." Nawalan na ng pagasa si Green at hindi na napigilan na taasan ng kilay si Ivan. Lalapit na sana si Ivan ng biglang bumangon si Izeiah at humihingal itong tumingin sa paligid.

"Someone--- acck--son me." Umubo ng umubo ito hanggang dugo na ang lumabas. Lumaki ang mga mata ng nandito.

"What di you say?" Galit na tanong ni Ivan at lumapit dito.

"Poi---accck---ton me. eeeek--someone." Hindi magtutugma ang sinasabi ni Izeiah.

"Poison you, someone?" Tumango si Izeiah at napahiga. Malalim ang mga hininga nito.

"I need to find the antidote otherwise I'll die." Tumayo ito pero napaupo lang dahil sa mahina palang ito.

"How many days?" Napatingin si Izeiah kay Ivan dahil sa tinanong nito. Napaiwas ito ng tingin at hindi sumagot.

"It's not that severe. My body can take it." Sabi nito at liningon si Green.

"Green, I have to go back. Drop me off." Hindi nagsalita si Green at tumangon nalang at inakay si Izeiah pero piniglan lang sila ni Ivan.

"I'm asking you. How many days until it spreads all over your body?"

"I got about a year base on what I feel." Sabi ni Izeiah na nakatalikod.

Izeiah's Pov

I have a lot of theories on how the hell did that someone poison me. Nanghihina palang ako at pati paghinga mahirao nadin.

Isang taon. Yan ang sinabi ko kay Ivan pero sa totoo, kung hindi ko pa mahanap ang antidote sa isang buwan, itong katawan ko ang mismong lalaban dito at baka macoma ako dahil sa sakit. Sasakit ang katawan ko at pati buhok ay masakit. It will forcefully exert the poison out of me leaving me in deep pain.

"Tara na. " aya ko kay Green at tumango naman ito. Buti naman at nakicooperate ito.

I need to find the antidote as soon as possible.
