Tring! Tring! Tring ! The phone rang in the middle of the night. It was my grandpa. My mom was shocked to hear my grandpa saying in a trembling voice that my grandma had a heart attack and they are rushing her to the hospital. My mom woke me and my brother and said we are leaving, I was eager to ask were but I did not ask, as I could see my mom in a rush that I have never seen her in before as my dad was in US at that time so my uncle and aunt came to pick us up.
Then I came to know that we are going to my grandma and grandpa’s house because my grandma was in her death bed we were about to leave when the plan changed my uncle was bringing my grandma to our house in his car. In an hour the car arrived my mom and aunt burst into tears I was still as a statue I didn’t know how to react. I have seen these kind of scenes in movies but this is the first time in real. They placed my grandma in an ice box in our house I had tears in my eyes, everyone was crying. My mom was on the phone telling my dad about this she said ‘your mom is’ my dad interrupted ‘I don’t want to know I am coming straight away’ and he cut the line.
My mom arranged for the flight, my dad paid extra and came saying it was an emergency, but my dad was stuck in US as there was corona, he tried to get here as fast as possible but he only came the next day. When he saw grandma his face changed I could see him as sad as ever, but he was hiding it I knew it. It was like throwing a huge rock on me. I didn’t cry that much there but I had a breakdown in the restroom. That night no one slept all were in the hall next to grandma sitting and crying, they told me and the other children to go to bed. Me and the others laid down but couldn’t sleep.
I gently closed my eyes and recalled the moment that me and grandma had together. Suddenly I heard grandma’s voice ‘hello my darling’ ‘Grandma!’ I cried ‘how are you here?’ I asked ‘well you have one night to spend everyone are asleep we are in your terrace, use this time wisely as I will have to go when the sun rises’ . I was speechless, me and grandma talked, played games and I made tea for us, when we drank tea I spilt some on myself but I did not get hurt. I was happy that I could spend some time with her. She also told how she exactly died ‘well I could not sleep so I thought I could clean the fridge
I felt something a feeling that I cannot explain, then grandpa came and told me to sleep for a while so I went to bed. He bought some tea then I got a heart attack at that time’ tears rolled down from my eyes I could not control myself from crying. Oh! It is time for you and me to go bye sweetheart’ she said
‘Can’t we meet again ‘I asked sadly. ‘I am afraid not but I will be with you but you won’t be able to see me ’ said grandma. I also went to bed.
The next day morning I woke up in a confusion whether what happened was a dream or reality. then I went to get ready, when I saw myself in the mirror I was shocked as there was tea on my shirt, I ran to the terrace to see 2 cups with a bit of tea in them, I was astounded. Whether what happened was a reality or dream? I guess no one is going to know…
