I followed him to his office where he offered me a seat and went to take his on the other side of the table.
“Do you need a coffee or anything?” He asked.
“Oh! Not at all. I’m fine, please. Thanks” I waved my hands at him and he nodded.
We went ahead to talk about my duties, salary and all and I must admit – it sounded pretty cool.
When we were done, I took my position in front of the office while the other lady moved to God-knows-where and geez! She looked pretty angry at me.
The job wasn’t really stressful since I already had an experience.
Hours later, it was time to pick Axel up from school and I decided to tell Zach about it.
“Sir”, I called as I stood in front of him.
“I’m sorry but, I need to leave now. I need to pick up my son from school”.
Thank goodness we already talked about it in the morning.
“Oh! Is it time?” He asked and I nodded.
“Okay, then. I’ll give you a ride there” he said and my eyes widened in shock.
“S…sir?” I stuttered as he stood up with his car keys.
“Um…I really appreciate the help, but there’s no need for that. I can take care manage on my own, please”.
“Come on Zoey. Its okay. Besides, I just feel going for a ride and taking some air. Its fine” he said and started towards the door.
Why the hell would he want to give me a ride, huh?
I rubbed my neck and finally followed him out of the office.
I took my bag from my desk and we left the company together.
After a long drive, we got to the school building and I stepped out of the car to get Axel.
I walked into the building, headed for his class and there I met him waiting alongside others.
“Mum!!” He called and ran into my arms and laughed and carried him up.
Awwn! Looks like someone missed me!” I teased and tickled him and he laughed harder.
“Welcome ma’am” his teacher who had been smiling the entire time said.
“Oh! Good evening ma. Thank you” I replied quickly and collected Axel’s bags from him.
“Come on” I cooed as I held his hand and led him out of the classroom.
We got outside and thankfully, Zach was still waiting.
“Huh? Are we using the car?” Axel asked as we approached it.
“Um…yes. He’s just being of help” I replied him, feeling q little uneasy.
We got near and he used his eyes to open the door – magically – without touching it.
I gasped and quickly looked around to be sure no one noticed it.
“Hey! Axel! I’ve warned you to stop doing that in public, haven’t i?” I growled at him.
“Yeah – I know” he shrugged and jumped into the car.
I shook my head and opened the front door, getting in as well.
“Hey, buddy” Zach turned to him and said.
“Yeah – hi dude” Axel replied,making me amused.
Where the hell did he learning that?
“Wat’s up? How was school today?” Zach asked.
“Yeah..” He just simply replied and took his eyes to the window.
Huh? What’s wrong with him?
I looked at him and tried signalling him to greet properly, but he ignored my stares.
I don’t understand. Doesn’t he like Zach or what?
I rolled my eyes and sat properly and Zach started the car and took off.
I wonder what’s wrong with Axel. He’s completely as strong headed as his father.
Zach kept bringing up little discussions along the way and suddenly, he screeched the car to a halt when he had almost knocked down a woman.
“Oh my God!!” I exclaimed as I watched the woman fall down on the floor.
Please, tell me she wasn’t hurt.
I opened the door and rushed out to meet her struggling on her feet
“Ma’am, I’m so sorry. Were you…”
I suspended my words when she finally stood up and I had a proper look at her face.
I flinched and moved backwards as she also looked shocked seeing me.
“Mum?” I called, gob smacked.
Oh my God!
I knelt in the temple, offering sacrifices to the saviors – like I’ve been doing for the past 5 years.
Tears rolled down my cheeks as I lifted the plate of hot ashes and circled it around the image.
I did so for 3 times before dropping it back on the floor.
Then, I placed my palms together and prayed – praying for my son to wake up.
For the past five years, I’ve been incomplete – hopeless -since the witch tried to kill my son on the day of his wedding.
She had stabbed with him a poisoned dagger, but thankfully, he didn’t die immediately but has been in coma for the past five years.
We’ve tried so many doctors, but none has been able to awake him and since then, I always come to the temple to pray to the saviors for their help.
Rana has gotten married already. As soon as he went into coma, she got married the following month. Everything has been hopeless.
Oh! Zosar, if only he knows how much I miss him.
I wept bitterly and prayed with more fervor.
Is there no hope for him at all? If he dies, I’ll just have to die as well.
I stayed there for more than an hour, offering my sacrifices and prayers and after a while, I heard someone running in.
“My queen! My queen!”
I turned swiftly to see a maid running in, like she was being chased by a wide animal.
What’s going on?
“What is it?” I asked, alarmed, still on my knees.
“My queen, it’s the prince…the prince…your son…he’s awake!” She said in deep breaths and my heart skipped.
