CHAPTER 11: CAN YOU DANCE TO THIS BEAT?

I sprinted in my apartment and dumped all my clothes on my bed. It's going to be Betsy's fault if Rachel fries me tonight. It's her birthday and I promised to help her prepare.
I grabbed my phone and speed dialled Rachel as I went through the pile of clothes on my bed.

"Hello?" Rachel's cheery voice answered.
"It's me, hun. I'm running late. I don't think I can come over in time." I said in apologetic tone.
"I figured. No worries though. I'm half way done. I'll be heading to the restaurant in a bit. Want me to wait for you?"
"No need. You go on right ahead. The lads will probably be there with their girlfriends."
"Yeah. See you later?"
"Yup."

I threw my phone on the bed side table and rumaged through the heap. I can't find a thing to wear!

I sat straight and eyed the pile. This is hopeless. I shuffled on my feet and opened the top most drawer on my dresser. There, in a box, lay a dress I bought for the 25th anniversary party of the magazine. My sister got ill that night, so I didn't go.

I carefully unfolded the dress and held it against my body in front of the mirror. I smiled at my reflection.
It was a beautiful dress. It was black in color and a sleeveless turtleneck type. The hem fell just a little above my knees. It would go well with my red waist belt and stilletos.

Forty-five minutes later, my hair and make up was done and I was fully dressed in my chosen ensemble; ready to take on the night.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I took a cab to the chosen restaurant. Rachel had arranged a semi-formal party for her and her friends. She had reserved half of the restaurant for us to stay in for the night.

I entered the restaurant and made my way to the entrance through the separator. From the other side, I could hear upbeat songs thumping from the sound system and people's chatter.

As I enetered Rachel's side, I was met by people both familiar and not. Most of them were probably from her work. I made my way to the center where, as I expected, Rachel sat with the guys. A smile immediately found its way on my face as I hurriedly ran towards Rachel.

"Happy Birthday!!!" I hugged her tightly as I shoved her gift on the table in front of her.
"Thank you!" She hugged me back and glanced at what I was wearing. "You look gorgeous!"
"Thank you." I smiled and did a twirl.
"Sit down, show off."

I sat beside her and that was when I realized I hadn't greeted the guys yet.

"Sorry. Was a bit excited to see my best friend." I smiled sheepishly. "So uhhh. Hi!"
"It's okay." Dougie laughed.
"This is Izzy by the way." Harry said, gesturing to the girl sat beside him.
"The infamous Izzy. Glad to finally meet you." I shook her hand.
"You too." She smiled sweetly.

I turned to Danny who had been quietly watching me.

"And what's your problem?" I nudged him jokingly.
"Nothing. You look wonderful."
"Mmmmhhhhmmm." I replied sarcastically. "Let's dance guys! Come on!" I stood up and glanced at everyone.
"You just got here. Don't you want to eat first?" Rachel asked.
"I'll do that later. Come on! I have a lot of energy in me!" I grabbed Rachel's and Danny's hands and pulled them toward the dance floor as the others trailed behind us.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As the night mellowed down, we left the party and headed for a pub down the street. 'It would be a waste if I don't get wasted' Rachel had insisted. She left her sister in charge as we left.

We sat at a booth drinking our sanity away and laughing at everything we talked about. Suddenly, my cellphone started ringing. The name flashing on the screen was my sister's. She only called when it was an emergency.

"Be right back." I muttered to no one in particular as I rushed to the bathroom.
I quickly pressed answer and stuck it to my ear. "Yeah?"
"Dad just had a heart attack, Blake. They found him on the floor unconscious." My sister said, shaken and confused.
"Will he be okay?" I said; my throat suddenly dry.
"I don't know."
"I'll come in the morning. Just hold on, okay?"
"Okay."

I ended the call and I looked at my face in the mirror. I was pale like a ghost and shock was still written on my face.
I exited the bathroom and found Danny chatting with a couple of girls.

"Who is that Blake girl anyway? And why are you dating her?" One girl said.
"She's a mate really." Danny said politely.
"Yeah, well. She's not really as cool as she thinks." The other replied and Danny cleared his throat as he saw me.
"I have to go. Sorry. Please tell the others." I said to him before I turned to the girls. "Blake McGregor by the way. And no. I don't think I'm cool at all." I flashed them a sarcastic smile and walked out of the pub.

To be continued...

CHAPTER 12: A WALK WITH LONELINESS

Early the next morning, my bags were packed and I dragged them out of my apartment. I immediately grabbed a cab to the station and grabbed the first tube to Bolton.

Danny and Rachel have been calling and texting me since last night, but I never answered nor replied. I was too busy thinking up scenarios at home.

It hasn't been the first time my dad had a heart attack. Earlier on, about six months ago, they discovered him on our basement; unconscious. The doctor had said he better be careful because he wasn't getting any younger.

I took a deep breathe and focused my attention on the scenery outside.

BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ

I glanced at my phones. Danny. I pressed end and ignored the call.

BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ

Oh, for goodness' sake! I glanced at my phone again.

"Hello?" I quickly answered.
"Hey." My sister replied faintly.
"Is dad okay? Are you and mum okay?"
"Yeah. We'll talk about dad later. You just get yourself here, yeah?"
"I'm on my way."
"Okay."

I rubbed at my eyes furiously as I stifled a yawn. I didn't get enough sleep the night before. How could I, to be honset?

"Hello love. Having a nice morning?" A man sat in front of me. He was roughly in his late thirties. I pondered on his question before flashing him a weak smile.
"No. Not really."
"Ahh. Whatever it is, you'll get by."
"I hope so." My gaze fell on my lap.

I looked at my watch and out the window, then back at my watch again. If only I could get there faster. What happened to my father, I do not know.

"You'd look much more beautiful if you kept that frown from your face." The man said in a knowing tone.
I flashed him a genuine smile. He was a sweet man.
"That's it, love. Keep on smiling."

For the rest of the journey, I had a nice conversation with the man. He managed to keep my mind off my problems.

I learned he was a thirty-nine year old widower who just lost his wife in a battle with leukemia. He told me about his fight for survival for the sake of his two kids.

In turn, I told him about my family's situation which paled in comparison to what he told me. Nonetheless, he was very sympathetic and offered me kind words.

His biggest advice for me was to always SMILE. "Life will not get better if you frown or cry, but it just might if you learn to smile and think positive."

When we reached Bolton, I was no longer afraid of what I would hear in the hospital. The man tought me how to mentally prepare myself.

"Thank you, Joseph." I hugged him tightly before I left the station.
"You're welcome. Take care of yourself." I nodded and walked off to the direction of the cabs.
"Thank you." I glanced at the sky as I walked.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When I reached the hospital, I called my sister and met her at the hospital canteen. She led me to my father's room just in time before the doctor left.

"Can I talk to you please?" I turned to the doctor. He nodded and headed out the lobby. I glanced at my mum and sister before I followed him out.
"What exactly is wrong with my dad?"
"He's fine. I saw his medical record and his heart attack now is milder than last time." I sighed heavily.
"But that doesn't mean he's safe. He'll be bed ridden for a couple of months and you need to make sure someone will be watching him."
I nodded as I took in what he said. "When will you allow him out?"
"In two weeks. For now, he needs to be under observation."
"Thank you." I shook his hand and headed back in.

I sat beside my mum and hugged her tightly. "He'll be okay." I whispered softly.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I sa up in my chair and glanced around the hospital room. I spent the night at my dad's hospital room with my mum and sister. I stood up quietly and walked over to my sleeping father. I gave him a quick kiss on the cheek and slipped out the room discreetly.

I punched in a very familiar number and sighed before I put my phone against my ear.

"It's me." I breathed softly.
"Why haven't you called or replied." Danny demanded.
"Problems....I...I'm sorry."
"You don't know how worried you got me! I've almost called the police on you!"
"I'm sorry."
"You can't just walk out of a pub at night and not call for a full twenty four hou--"
"I said I'm sorry!!! I'm sorry!" I cut him angrily. Stress and worry have built up inside me and I was wound up.
Danny sighed on the other end. "I'm sorry, too. Are you okay?"
"Yeah...I...just have some things to take care of. I have to go."
"Okay. Call me as soon as you can. I love you."
I sighed heavily. "Love you too."

To be continued...
