What is this?

Who is calling my name?

Even though I could hear it, I still couldn't pinpoint what was happening to me. I couldn't see anything, but I could hear someone calling me. I wanted to open my eyes and see it for myself but couldn't. I heard something. Like some kind of sense of the limited sensory input like the sounds of something which felt like machines, the sensations on my body, the voices that I heard.

I could hear voices and was trying to make sense of what they were saying. Their words often entered my dreams. Someone kept telling me "Come back, you're fine now. I got you!"

I had terrifying repetitive dreams from which I couldn't escape, couldn't wake up from, couldn't make sense of. And eventually, those things were starting to annoy me now. Finally, as I felt lightweight and my eyes fluttered open, I saw something. Curious stares of people hovering me. I would have freaked out but if it wasn't for my throat all dried up, I chose to stay quiet.

Their voices reaching my ears and one of them put a light straight into my eyes causing me to jerk voluntarily. Then I knew it. I was in hospital. Everything started to make sense. And it was when my eyes fell on a man standing near the door. He had wide eyes and he looked miserable.

I recognized the person instantly. How could I not?

Caleb.

He looked different. He had stubble on his face, his hair was a mess and he looked out of place with the clothes he was wearing. It was as if he had not eaten for ages. It was not how I had wanted to see him, ever. My hand reached out towards him, wanting to touch him and then I saw him falling on his knees and he started sobbing.

Just what have you been through?

Why are you crying?

I couldn't understand what was happening and why he was crying. Is it again one of my dreams? Am I really dead?

It can't be.

I saw the man crying continuously and the next moment he stood up and ran to me, holding my hand and putting his head on the bed. I could feel his warm hands to mine cold ones. They were trembling.

"Don't you ever do this to me ever again!" he sobbed and a smile formed on my face as I clutched his hand tightly, assuring him that I was alright.

"Ms. Carter can you explain what really happened with you in detail?" the officer asked me as one of his officer stood next to him with a recorder in his hand. I nodded as I took in a deep breath and looked back at Caleb who looked tense on my side as he clutched my hand and nodded at me.

I told the whole story from the beginning when they shoot at us back in the mall and how they kidnapped me to where I saw a woman on the laptop demanding them to kill me.

The officer took note of it as he handed me a sketch. "We had this drawn over ideas of the hitmen we caught. Is this the right image?" he asked as I took a look of the sketch and immediately a small gasp escaped my mouth. It was the right sketch. I remembered the woman's face perfectly. And I nodded desperately making sure that my feelings etched on my face.

"Yes, she is the one, " I told him and he nodded taking the sketch back as he looked back at me.

"We have already started the investigation and we will soon find this woman as soon as possible, " he said and looked back at Caleb who nodded at him and after that he was gone.

I exhaled out-breath, that I didn't know I was holding. I clearly remembered the woman's face. She was clearly not a person from my group. I have never met her, never seen her around, what enmity does she hold with me? What grudge does she hold against me to go such extent wanting me dead?

Did I really harm someone in the past?

But I was never close to anyone.

"Are you alright?" Caleb whispered softly and I stared at him

something. It was faint and blurry but in the memory, a kid sat on a table next to a woman who was sketching something on a paper. The room was a mess with papers all over and the kid swung her legs humming a song, while the woman with glasses looked up at her and smiled.

What are you drawing?

A pendant.

Do you like to draw?

Can I draw for you?

Do you want to?

Sorry, darling, you have to be a designer if you want to touch my work.

How to be a designer?

You have to study and learn a lot.

Then teach me.

You sure?

Yes!

"Sang? Sang? What happened?"

"Sang!" I was snapped out of my moment as I looked back to find Caleb staring down at me with wide frantic worried eyes.

"Are you alright? Should I call the doctor?" he asked and I shook my head.

"No, it's okay. I'm alright. I just remembered something, " I told him as I removed his hand from my shoulder and he looked between me and Mrs. Lewis.

"This was the last piece she was working on before she died. It was for you. It is unfinished, " the woman said as she handed me a box and as soon as I opened it, tears streamed down my face as I saw an unfinished hairpin. A comb style u-shaped hairpin studded with stones and leaf-like projections.

"I had already forgotten that I still have these. I should have given you when we met the last time, but I totally forgot about it. Forgive me, " I heard her speak but my attention was on the hairpin as I sobbed because I was able to hold something for the first-ever time which was a gift from my mother.

Even though she was not here to hand me the finished one, still I loved the one I held with my dear life as I hugged it and closed my eyes when I felt someone caressing my head.

"Do you like it? She wanted to gift it to but she co-"

"I love it. I really love it. Thank you, Mrs. Lewis. Thank you so much. This is the best gift I have ever received. I am grateful, " I sobbed and the woman smiled sympathetically as she stayed quiet while I sobbed for the next few minutes holding the most precious thing I ever received.

My eyes fell on the sketches and I inhaled loudly as I picked it up.

She was truly a designer.

I do understand now, why I liked this so much and dreamt of becoming one.

Mom, if you have really passed on your dreams to me then I promise you. I won't fail you.

I will become one of the greatest designers, even better than you were.

Thank you so much for putting your trust on me and thank you for this hairpin.
