The old lady kept coming by

the hospital to assure the medics that it’ll be okay

“He’s a true fighter,” she said. “I know he’ll make it.

He has won the battle with drugs

twice in the past. He’ll make it this time as well. I

know it. I feel it. I believe in him.”

“Mam,” said the doctor. “We found rusty fragments

of broken needles stuck in his arm. Now, since

you’re his only relative

I do believe we shall carry out a discussion involving septic shock.

The effects…”

“He’ll make it! I know he will!

He’s a true fighter and a champion.

I believe in him.”

He didn’t make it

but it was fine apparently. When they showed his

body in the morgue, the old lady

didn’t flinch.

Told them that’s not her son.

That was a dead body and her son was alive.

    1. My divine gift is being able to sleep for 18 – 22 hours after I’ve stayed awake for 36

      …or maybe it’s just a crappy sleeping schedule, idk, but it makes me very different from most people

  1. Great story, Bogdan! Really deep and touching.
    Have to do something about the automatic translation problem on the site.
    After the last revision, it added the ‘?’ in the title on its own.
    I fixed it now.
    I’ll go crazy like this. 🙂

      And don’t worry about the technicalities. I believe in your ability as editor!
      With blogs/websites you can only learn as you go along step by step and encounter challenges.
