I went to the doctor's office and knocked. There's only one doctor inside so I guess that's Jack's doctor. He's like in his mid 40's and he's with a little girl in her 8 or 9 years old.. Must be his daughter. The doctor's eyes snapped towards the door and he nodded while smiling. I came in and he let me sit on the couch. The little girl approached me handing me a notebook and pen.
"What will I do with these, little girl?" I asked, while smiling.
"Please sign on my notebook." She stated and I chuckled.
"Sure.. How did you know me?" I asked, signing on her notebook.
"I saw you in a magazine.. Couples of magazine." She stated, proudly.
"Wow, okay.. Here you go." I said while handing it to her.
"Thank you Mage." She said.
I patted her head and she went back to.. Who I think, her father.
"Sorry for that, and sorry for letting you wait. I studied.. Jack's Condition." He said while smiling.
"It's fine Mr.." I trailed, sheepishly.
"Oh, hello by the way Ms. Silvers I am Mr. Demure." He introduced while offering a hand.
"Oh, hello Mr. Demure.. I am glad to meet you." I said.
"Okay, so here is Jack's." He said while handing a paper to me.
I studied the paper and it said that he had too much stress, something. I can't fully understand it though, like I said, we have rarely done anything earlier.
"I'll explain to you Ms. Mage." Mr. Demure started and I nodded.
"But first.. Let me ask you a question." He said and I nodded.
"Did Jack had an accident or a disease that made him confined to a hospital?" He asked.
Hm, he didn't tell me that he had a particular disease, but I know that he had an accident.. Accident.
"He had an accident when he was a kid." I stated and he nodded.
"That must be it. Did he tell you something about forgetting things when he was a kid?" He asked.
"Yeah, he said that after the accident, he didn't quite remember much about his childhood." I said.
"Oh.. That's why. I have a conclusion that some memories he can't remember came flashing back to his mind. Maybe he tried to remember those memories, but can't.. That's why he had too much stress." He stated and I nodded.
"Memories? But he didn't mention anything when he woke up earlier. Why is that?" I asked, confused.
"Maybe he forgot about it again." The doctor said.
"Why did some memories come back?" I asked, very puzzled.
"Maybe something or someone connected to the memory, came back.. Even just words." He said.
The doctor and I talked about Jack's condition more which made me more confused. After talking and asking questions, I thanked the doctor and went back to Jack's room. I opened the door and he's asleep with no one. I searched for a fruit and noticed a paper-note.
Mage, honey.. I just went out to buy us some food. -Nana
I placed down the note and sat beside Jack, not minding the fruits. I stared at him while examining his facial features. I didn't notice that he has freckles and stuff. His eyebrows are thick, I wish I had that kind of eyebrows though.. He also has a pointed nose. I am looking further to his lips when his eyes snapped open. I let my gaze away from him and he chuckled.
"Done staring at my handsome face?" He asked, arrogantly.
"Like I am staring." I said while trying my best not to blush.
"So you are staring at the floor all the time?" He asked.
"Ye-yes." I stuttered, earning a chuckle from him.
"What?" I asked, innocently.
He rolled his eyes, still chuckling, earning a grin from me.
"How are you feeling my prince?" I asked, trying to avoid the topic and to also check on him.
"I'm doing good already my princess." He said and I smiled. Silence filled the air.. It's a comfortable silence though. Then something popped into my mind..
"Hey Jack, do you remember your aunt's number?" I asked.
"Yeah, why?" He asked, curiously.
"I want to let them know that you're in the hospital." I explained.
"No need. They don't care." He stated and I rolled my eyes.
"How did you know?" I asked.
"I just know." He short-answered.
"Just give me their number dumbhead." I ordered while handing my phone to him.
He punched his aunt's number while rolling his eyes. I quickly called it.. He tried to stop me, but of course he failed. I put it on speaker mode so I can hear them, I want to hear his aunt's voice. A couple of rings past before his aunt answered. My eyes widened and I hurriedly handed the phone to Jack.. He chuckled and answered. His aunt has a sweet light voice.
"My girlfriend wants to let you know that I am in the hospital." He said.
"So if she didn't tell you to call us, you won't call us. Anyway, why are you there? Are you alright?" His aunt asked, worriedly.
"I am already fine aunt, thank you for worrying though." He said.
"Are you sure? Do you want us to come?" His aunt asked.
"Yes, I am sure. Yea- no. No need. I'll be discharged soon aunt, don't worry." He said, unsurely.
They talked for a bit and then they already said their goodbyes to each other. His aunt said that Meise is just out for a walk. His aunt still also insisted to come, but Jack doesn't want them to come. After his phone call with his aunt, we just stayed quiet. Another silence, comfortable silence. He roamed his eyes around and after a couple of seconds, his face turned pale making me worry.
"What's wrong?" I asked, worriedly.
"When will we go out in this place?" He asked while closing his eyes.
"We will, tomorrow morning. The doctor said he still need to observe you over the night." I said.
"I'm fine princess, he doesn't need to check on me over the night. Let's discharge already." He insisted.
"No. I understand you, but you also need to understand yourself." I reasoned, while standing up.
"I'm sorry.. I just can't stand the look and smell of the hospital." He said, while trying to reach my hand.
I looked at him and he smiled charmingly at me with puppy eyes.
"You do know how to be charming." I said while rolling my eyes.
"Come here, let's both rest." He said, patting the space beside him.
"No, I'll just rest in the couch. I don't want to sleep beside a jerk-head.. And you just woke up." I said, while sticking my tongue out.
"I am not asleep earlier, I just don't want to see my surroundings." He said, coldly, but he still smiled.
"I won't sleep beside you." I said, playfully.. Trying to cheer him up.
"Don't let me stand up and do something you don't wish." He threatened, while chuckling.
"Oh my gosh, you're so scary." I said, while acting scared, playfully.
He tried to sit, but I stopped him.
"Okay, okay. Let's rest." I said while settling beside him.
Good thing the bed is not so small or else, one of us will fall.
I can't believe I am sleeping beside my love. Wait, love? No, no, not yet.. I closed my eyes and drifted off to my deep slumber.
