PAPA

I shiver…

Mummy called just now.

Papa’s in the hospital, she said. Take a taxi.

What happened to Papa?

click.


There’s no light…I forgot to switch on the heater…


Mummy never takes a taxi.

Well, maybe once in a while.

Why is Papa in the hospital?


Never mind…a little cold water won’t hurt…

Mummy sounded strange.

She didn’t sound like…well…Mummy.

Did something happen to Papa?


I face the shower…my eyes closed…


Mummy, are you ok?

She’s not here.
Neither is Papa.


I feel the droplets on my face….for they are now…..


mine.
