I shut my eyes tightly, as I laid in the theatre bed. I’m donating my kidney to someone, and none of my family member knew about it- What if I die, Alex is obviously right, am too young to donate a kidney.
But, I’ve no choice, Fred is at the verge of death and….
“Are you ready” the doctor’s voice jarred me from my deep thoughts. I nodded. He looked at me closely and asked in a low tone.
“Are you sure, you’re ready to sacrifice your life for someone’s else own.” He asked.
I gnashed my teeth, why is everyone acting as If I would die. Perhaps, am not the first human to be donating a kidney to someone.
“Well, I love your courage, it’s obvious you are in love and__”
“Can you just stop it!” I cut in and he shrugged.
The nurses walked in. “Such a cute boy, I pray you survive it.” A motherly looking nurse said in sympathy as she pierced a syringe in my arms. Vision became blurry, and lights fade off.
I saw myself wandering around, my face lit up as I saw the Fred . “Fred!!!” I screamed in excitement and rushed to hug him. But I notice he was in tears. Alex, Eric, Jeffrey and Mason were also there, weeping like children.
They were looking down at a coffin. I walked over to the coffin and peered inside. To my utmost dismay, I was the one inside the coffin. Am dead!!!! .
“Jeesusss!!!” I yelled and woke up, panting heavily. It’s a dream.
“He’s awake!” A nurse squealed happily and the door burst opened, Alex and Mason rushed in.
“Oliver!!!” They gasped in excitement.
“You made it!” Alex yelped.
“Made what?” I asked with a little sarcasm in my voice.
“Hold on…do you mean the surgery has been done successfully and am awake.” I asked.
“YEA…” Alex proclaimed.
“Fast?, you’ve been asleep for a week and you’re just recovering today.” Mason expounded.
I’ve been unconscious for a full week. This is serious. By the way what of Fred.
I looked at Mason and Alex.
“What about Fred and Eric!” I voiced out.
“Eric is fine, he’s just on bed rest”
They both hesitated.
“No news from him, ever since the surgery, he hasn’t woke up or even lift a finger.”
My heart thumped.
And I started hyperventilating. And I lost consciousness and fainted.
This time I had a nightmare.
I saw Fred kissing a girl…it was a painful sight. I walked to him and confront him.
“You don’t expect me to be a gay forever.” He replied and kept kissing the girl.
“After all what i’ve done for you!” I yelled. He withdrew and looked furiously at me.
“Look Oliver, you are a boy not a girl, you don’t expect me to love you. Am not a gay, I know you love me but you’ve to try to stop loving me, cause it doesn’t make sense. Go look for a girlfriend, and stop being clingy to me cause I don’t love you anymore.” Fred chastised.
My eyes went heavy.
“But I donated my kidney to you.” I managed to say amid tears.
Fred’s face clouded with anger
“Because, you donated your kidney doesn’t mean I should lick your foot…what’s that for…you helped me, yeah…thanks, I appreciate that, but stop gloating over it. If you want, I can return the kidney back to you.
Damn you!!!”, Fred yelled and spat on my face.
“FRED!!!!!!” I screamed and woke up.
All eyes were at me. I searched from one faces to another, I saw
Alex, Eric, Mason, Jeffrey, Alexa, Ariana, Alena, Jimmy, Tony,
principal of Gay High School, the principal of Queens HIGH school,
and the last but not the least……I saw Fred, he was looking cadaverous.
“Oliver!!!!” They all exclaimed.
I shuddered peering from one faces to the other.
Then my eyes darted to Fred. He rushed to me and hugged me tight, so tight.
“How much can I pay you for saving my life.” He cried out.
“I didn’t keep a tally.” I replied, holding him tight to myself. Not wanting to leave him.
I can’t just imagine…But What if that dream comes true.
The spiteful t
hought irked me even more.
“You did what No one could do.” Fred said, still sobbing.
I looked at Alex.
“You told me, he’s still unconscious.” I muttered
“He was…you dozed off for another seven days.” Alex glower.
“Wow…Romeo and Juliet, just that the both are boys…By the way, I’ll give you two weeks after which you’ll be punished for disguising yourself as a girl in my school.” The principal of Queens High School; deadpan.
Everyone Chuckled, Alexa sniffle. Oh…they’ve found out.
“Well, Oliver it seems you and my son are inseparable. You saved his life and I owe you a lot. I apologise for causing your expulsion.
You and Fred can be friends forever, but I just want to remind you that you’re a boy and Fred is a boy. Boys and Boys won’t work out well. So you both could be JUST friends.” Mr Braxton, Fred’s dad said.
And I nodded like I understood, but deep down, I didn’t understand and would never understand. I love Fred even more than his dad loves him.
I want to be with him forever (After All, the president permits GAY marriage).
“C’mon, everything is fine, this calls for a celebration.”
It’s Christmas holiday
I decided to visit home, it’s been long I saw my parents (even though I don’t like them )
I knocked thrice before the door opened. I saw mum looking at me furiously with her hands akimbo.
“You trolloping child! How dare you come back to this house.” Mum yelled in anger.
She hates me and I hate her.
We both have different ideology.
“Can you let me in, mum .” I said politely and I felt a hot slap on my face.
“You dare defies my order.” she seethed.
I held my cheeks in astonishment. And Dad also came out.
“Don’t you dare call me dad” he fired.
“Why the harsh treatment.” I asked, though I knew the answer already.
“Look, am not playing games with you, don’t you dare come to this house until you are ready to *.”
“That. I’ll never do.” I yelled. And stormed off.
To hell with their house.
Something strange is going to happen.
Am anxious .
How good are you at guessing.
What’s Oliver’s parents talking about.
