A New Ray Of Hope !!
A young girl in her teen years was disturbed by the buzz of her Tablet which notified her about anew message. It was 2 o clock at night but still she didn't bother about her sleep and just looked at the message and a smile appeared on her face. It was a message from her friend and it made her happy. she pulled herself up with great difficulty and replied to it and started chatting.
For her sleep was not that important than the time spent with her friends. After all she knew she had few days left in her hands. The girl was sick. She was ill and her doctor told she has few months to live. The thought about death scared her like anything. But she knew she had to accept it. She didnt wished to fight for her life. She was broken and scared. She didnt knew what to do, what to think. So she decided to drop this topic and live her life happily !
Whole night both the friends had lots of fun and then she went back to sleep hoping that the coming day will we good for her.
" Come on beta, get up its pretty late now " Her mother called out her name.
" Mumma let me sleep I am tired and my body hurts a lot " She replied whimpering in pain. Poor girl had to go through a lot of pain and nobody could help her or do something to comfort her. As long as she took her medicines the pain was bearable but once the effect of medicines used to go down, the pain used to return back like someone is stabbing her.
" Come on sweetu get up, you have your doctors appointment in 2 hours. You need to get ready before that. You can sleep on the way to the hospital" Her Sister woke her up patting her head lovingly and helping her out of her bed.
She looked pale and fragile. And her smile had disappeared behind her own sorrow. How hard she tried to keep her hopes up, it never helped. The doctor said her to keep her hopes up and fight willingly and then only with the medications help her. But she had different plans. She didnt think about living and going through the hard struggle, instead she loved the easy way out. The calm and peaceful death. How hard everyone tried to give her some hope, it never worked out.
" Why do I always have to go to these hospitals every next day ! I am sick of being there and just hate it to the core. Can't it be a better option that I make this hospital my new home instead of switching between the 2 ? " she questioned her family members while fumbling through her clothes and deciding what to her.
She had too much of difficulty in deciding what to wear as she had lost considerable amount of weight and now her clothes were way to large for her. She made a mental note to go to shopping on the day when she feels a bit better than the rest. She looked liked a zombie and didnt face the mirror until it was really important to do soo.
They all left towards the hospital. Breakfast like always had been a disaster for her. Her stomach and food had some kind of enemity with each other. They both start a World War 3 as soon as she eats something and then end up throwing up the food. And then everyone asks her to eat. But someone take a look at her condition too, she tries her best but its difficult to keep the food in.
The long hospital corridors and the scent of all the medications send chills up her spine. The doctors in their hospital gowns and the nurses and patients around makes her feel more sick and terrible. She proceeds to section of the hospital which she is very familiar with as its the place which she visits almost every second day.
She is greeted by her regular nurse who takes her inside for some tests while her parents go and have a talk with her doctor. The room is empty and the nurse doesn't speaks a word just smiles and get on her work. The silence is killing her and the walls of the room are suffocating her then and there. She was occupied in her thoughts when she feels a piercing sensation on her arm. Only to noticed the Injection needle drawing blood from her veins for testing.
After the tests she leaves to look for her parents and reach home as soon as possible. She is about to knock at the of the doctor's cabin when she hears hushed voices of them. Listening to her Di's voice she feels like she is about to cry.
" Doctor, there might be something we can do. This can be true. She is going through the treatment from the past one month and still no improvement ? This can't be true? "her mother inquired with the doctor.
" I can understand your emotions. But her previous reports show no improvement and indicated that the medications didn't helped her. We need to try for some alternative drugs now. I had already informed you that treating such kind of cases can be difficult and you need to be strong for it. Being frank I am going to make no false promises to you. If she is not ready to fight then we cant help. She needs to be strong but whenever she comes here or any of the doctor meets her she looks scared. She needs to overcome her fear and be strong. She need to keep her hopes high. And one more thing if the treatment didnt work even now, then the chances are survival will be faint " The doctor explained.
A tear escaped from the girl's eyes and she made her ways towards the exit informing the nurse to tell her parents that she was outside. She went and sat alone outside processing what the doctor said. her mind was not ready to except it but she knew it was the truth. She kept crying hugging her knees until two arms wrapped around her. It was none other than her Dii. The journey back home was silent. She just kept hugging onto to her sister the complete journey back home. Once she reached , she ran away to her room and locked herself in crying her heart out.
She didn't opened the door for anyone. She needed to be alone. She needed sometime for herself. When it turned night, she didn't noticed, All she knew was that she was about to die and she had no other option. Everyone believed that she will die and so did she. She didn't had any hope left. She was hollow from inside. The words were killing her slowly. It was her end.
Her gaze went towards her laptop and she logged into her account. Everyone around seemed to be happy and cheerful. There was no way that she will spoil their mood. She replied back to her previous messages and started chatting and giving fake smiles while on the other side she was just crying and crying!
Everyone believed her fake smiles and accepted everything was fine and alright. But her best friend who is now her sister knew her very well. She knew something was wrong and asked about it. First the girl denied and said everything was fine but then, she was her sister and she knew her very well. She knew that the girl was sick and asked her about her health. She asked many questions to the girl and finally the girl couldn't hide it from her and told her whatever happened.
There was an awkward silence between the two of them.
The conversation seemed to be different.
The girls' sister told her that how she loves her and believes that she will be fine. Since morning she was the first person who believed in the positive side and not the negative. The girl's heart wanted to believe it but her mind knew that it was not true. But talking to her sister made her feel that whatever she was saying was true. That night she made a promise to her sister..to her Dii that she will never leave her and go. She will be there with her forever. She made a promise not only to her Dii but also to herself that she will be strong and will not give up. Her Dii gave her a new ray of hope that everything will be fine. That there is someone around who believes that the girl will be fine.
She gave the girl a new hope to live. To live to stay always with her Dii...
The next time when the girl visited the hospital. She was not scared liked before. Instead of shifting her gaze here and there while the doctor talked to her, she stared directly in his eyes and greeted him with a small smile and hello.
The doctor smiled back and patted the girls shoulder before taking her inside. The girl had a new hope in her heart. A hope to help her fight. A new hope that made her believe that yes, someone was there by her side...
Life is an opportunity, benefit from it. Life is beauty, admire it. Life is a dream, realize it. Life is a challenge, meet it. Life is a duty, complete it. Life is a game, play it. Life is a promise, fulfill it. Life is sorrow, overcome it. Life is a song, sing it. Life is a struggle, accept it. Life is a tragedy, confront it. Life is an adventure, dare it. Life is luck, make it. Life is too precious, do not destroy it. Life is life, fight for it."
Be happy and Enjoy your Life. You get to live only once. So dont destroy it !
