Sleeping Not So Beautiful part 14
I ran out of the hospital room, mad at the world. Why did my rescuer have to be so nice? I couldn’t complain about him at all. That was a problem. I had been frightened of Zachery and his father, but Darwin and his dad Blake? They were good people. I had been trying to hate Camilla for what she had been doing for me, but I couldn’t hate her for this. I hate to say this, but if Darwin and Blake lived here I wouldn’t mind it.
As I ran, I found myself in a place I didn’t know. My first thought was I had just taken a wrong turn. It’s easy to get lost in such a big house. But when I started going back the way I came, I only found myself back at the hospital door. I’d just go in and see if Darwin was okay. He had saved me, after all.
I took a few steps into the room, but then immediately regretted it. I saw Camilla leaning over Darwin’s bed. She was whispering something. I backed out of the room, trying to shut the door quietly behind me. I must have failed. My last sight was a surprised Camilla face. Not trying to be quiet, I took off down the hall toward my bedroom.
I hoped Camilla wouldn’t be too mad. Lost in my thoughts, I almost ran into Blake Sonka. He was going in the opposite direction looking worried. When he saw me, though, he smiled and bowed a little.
“Why Alia, fancy seeing you here. Why the glum face? Has Darwin done that to you?”I couldn’t help but smile at that. I curtsied back.
“Darwin has not done anything to me. I am lost in my own thoughts. Where are you going?” Blake blushed.
“I was looking for Camilla. Do you know where she is?”
As soon as I opened my mouth to answer, Camilla came rushing up behind me. She looked like she was about to scold me, but when she saw Blake she put a million-dollar smile on her face.
“Why hello there Blake! What brings you here on this fine afternoon? Is it your wonderful son? I’ve just been to see him. He fine you know he’s fine. I really think my nurse Nancy has taken good care of him. You are forever in our thanks. Whatever can we do to thank you? You can have anything.”
After that little conference I could tell Blake was as baffled as I was. I couldn’t believe Camilla had offered him anything. I could just tell he would ask to live at the mansion. He and his completely nice son Darwin. Darwin was one of the cutest boys I had ever seen. Why did Camilla have to make it that hard?
Look for part 15!
