Chapter two

Bianca was almost at her house when she felt a hand on her shoulder. She let out a blood curdling scream as she whirled around, her arms raised to protect her face. She slowly opened her eyes and found her neighbour, Tracy staring at her. She was a heavy set black American with the temper of a mule. But she could be sweet natured when she wanted. Bianca sighed and lowered her hands.
“What’s up Tracy?” She said.

“You look like you’ve seen a ghost. Are you alright?” Tracy asked.

“Yea sure. I’m alright”

“I was wondering if you’d like to hang out with my girls and I tonight. You know, girl’s night.” She said.

“That’s…um….it sound like fun but I’m sorry I can’t tonight.” Bianca apologized, hoping Tracy would get the message and stop pestering her to socialise.

“Alright,” She said. “Maybe next weekend?”

“Yea sure, thanks.” Bianca readily agreed, hastily walking away.

She took a long breath when her apartment came in view. She walked towards the door, her hands trembling as she slipped out a key from her Jean. I should have been the one in that casket, she thought. Life wasn't fair, she thought as hot tears trickled down her cheeks. She almost jumped out of her skin when her phone went off. It took her a second before she realized that it was her phone. She slipped it out of her pocket, she had gotten a reminder from the old people's home about Mj's mother. Mj was her only son and child. Now that he was gone, Bianca tried to be there for her. She locked the door and took a quick shower. She pulled her hair into a bun and walked into her kitchen. She took out everything she needed to make a chocolate cake while humming one of her songs.
***
Bianca hated hospitals. Just the thought of walking into one gave her migraines. The smell of drugs, nurses going up and down, the starchy green overall and everything else nauseated her. Nurses were always going up and doing but yet doing nothing. She had begged them, cried her eyes out while hanging onto their arms that they should save her husband. But what did they do? They had simply told her that he was dead. She parked her old car and picked up the cake beside her. She walked into the building with determination, her shoulders were tensed and her lips was pursed. She would be strong and make this day remarkable for Mrs. Faraday. She knocked on her door and walked into the hospital room. The old lady was laid up in her bed in a bright floral gown. Lucy, Mrs. Faraday's nurse gave Bianca smile.

"Hello Lucy," Bianca said.

"Hello Bianca," Lucy said, smiling. " Oh you brought us a cake!"

"Yea," Bianca said, walking towards the bed to place a kiss on the old woman's hair. She smelled of lemon shampoo. Bianca was glad her nurse was taking good care of her. She turned to Lucy, giving her a warm smile.

“Happy birthday mom,” Bianca said, " I baked you a cake,"

Mrs. Faraday beamed at her, pulling Bianca's arm to her bony chest.

” Where’s my Michael?’’ She asked, " Why isn't he here with you? Lucy didn't you tell me that boy of mine would be here today?"

“He…um” Bianca broke off, unsure of what to say. This was one of those days she forgot about everything including the fact that Mj was gone. Bianca wondered if it was a blessing or a curse that Mrs. Faraday had lost touch with reality. Bianca placed the cake on a table and ran out of the room.


“Its’s time for your nap Mrs. Fay” Lucy said, "After your nap I will read you a story and you can have a slice of your birthday cake." She tucked the sheet around her and went in search of Bianca.

Bianca couldn't forgive herself. Even though everyone said it wasn't her fault, she knew she had caused Mj's death. She had forced him to go to a grocery store late into the night. She heard a knock on the toilet door and held her breath.

"Are you alright in there?" Lucy asked.

“Mrs. Faraday,” Laura said, “I need to know you are alright, please answer me.”

“Yea” Bianca replied throatily.” I’m fine.”

She opened the door and walked out.

“Tears won’t bring him back.” She said,” Neither will it take away the guilt. It will only give you migraines.” She said. “I felt the same way when my son, Trey died. But in the end I realized that I only have to forgive myself. If I hadn’t sent him away the night he came home, dead drunk as usual he might still be alive today. Forgive yourself Bianca, forgive yourself, "

“Thank you, please will you make sure that Mrs. Faraday is properly cared for," Bianca said." I can't face her in this state,"

“You are welcome and I understand. " She replied and walked out.

I hope bianca gets through this, lost a friend once ,more like a brother. I have no idea what it feels like to loose a child. I hope i never have to, it will be heart wrenching.

This makes me remember Mama Henry, the mother of my friend. It was a terrible sight to watch her cry on that day. Two years now and Leukemia is still a heart breaker . Adieu Henry. embarassed

continue pls bibijay
