Like a Dream

Look at that cover design!

As times passes, Amelia’s left leg begins to twitch and she starts to nibble on her bottom lip. It seems as though the doctors are taking a long time, and she can’t shake the anxiousness. It’s been at least two hours since they rushed Cash into the operating room. This can’t be good. She knows her mom will be destroyed if he dies. Plus, the thought of being stuck with lunatics makes Amelia want to heave—again. They want her mother to pay for what she did, but Amelia knows she’s close enough in their eyes.

She stares at the clock on the wall and watches the hand tick, not missing a beat. Regardless of what’s happening in the world, time will continue to fly by, stopping for no one. If only Amelia could wind back time, then maybe she could’ve done something different. But it’s all too late. She knows this is going to be no picnic and wonders why this had to happen. It breaks her heart to think that Leona got in Cash’s head the way she did. In Amelia’s eyes, her father is a good person and her mother is practically a saint, but Leona is the devil herself.

Clack! The door to the surgery center opens and closes abruptly, startling them. The clicking sound reminds Amelia of a teacher hitting a chalkboard with a ruler. The surgeon slowly walks out and heads to the nurses’ station. He removes his surgical mask and rubs his bloodshot eyes. With a chart in hand he marches over to them, with a somber look on his face. Amelia’s breathing becomes shorter and the room is starting to spin. She’d swear he was moving in slow motion. She wipes the bead of sweat running down her face and can no longer hear. The doctor parks his feet right in front of her. Her entire body is shaking from head to toe. She forces herself to look up and watch his lips move as they form the words…

“I’m sorry…”
