''Hi, Albert. You're a bit cheery today, '' I say as soon as I step inside his room, the door closing behind me before placing the tray of food onto the table.

Both of Albert's eyes drift away from the television immediately, a smile appearing onto his face—revealing wrinkles on his cheeks. He leans back onto the bed, ''I should be saying that to you, '' He replies as he chuckles.

I place both of my hands onto my hips as I smile, frowning slightly at his respond. He shrugs, pretending not to know anything before taking a sip of his soup.

''The ring shows it all, '' He adds which causes me to immediately hide my left hand behind my back, out of his sight.

Knowing Albert, he doesn't just have a temper but he's also a cheeky old man. Mischievous, too. He must've heard the other nurses and doctors talking about the whole proposal that happened yesterday. . . like I said, he's cheeky.

Ever since Aidan proposed, I was and still am the talk of them all. When I was walking down the hall, a few doctors and nurses came towards me—started asking me about Aidan. They also complimented my ring and said how lucky I am to be engaged to the 'Top 5 Hottest Bachelor' of the year.

It's not a surprise that they know about Aidan, he's by far known by almost everyone. One of the youngest CEO to ever accomplish and achieve before the age of thirty; women go crazy for him and men want to be him. Well. . . some of them.

They won't stop talking about how attractive Aidan was when he proposed and they even showed me pictures which told me they weren't lying. I've looked at Aidan for twenty-years and it would be a lie if I say that, him being attractive has never crossed my mind because he is.

Even though his eyes are?plain?brown, they are light and beautiful in their own way. He makes himself look perfect that no one would even realise about his flaws. I've known him long enough to know how much he hates the shape of his lips but the feature that he hates most is actually craved by women, the most.

He knows that he's attractive, beautiful or even?hot. As they would say but he also knows how much flaws he has. He just chooses to ignore them and flaunt his flawless features.

''You don't have to hide it, '' Albert continues to say, ''Your face shows it, too.'' The way he says without even looking at me causes me to chuckle, knowing how much he has been the one to cheer me up whenever I'm down or even listen to my problems.

Albert, known as short-tempered and even grumpy by others but by me, he's the sweetest old man I've ever taken care of. He knows when people are lying to him because he said he has lived long enough to study the faces of liars and I don't blame him, he's being cautious.

At times, he would tell me stories about his son. He only has one. By the way he would describe him, it shows just how much he loves him with his whole heart and that he misses him because the last time he saw him was when he left to live in London.

In fact, his son has never once came to visit. Truthfully, no one ever came to visit. It saddens me to ever think about him whenever I'm at home, knowing that he's alone in the hospital and just probably wondering about his son, his late wife.

Her name was Helen, described by him as the most beautiful woman to ever exist. He also told me how much her brown eyes haunt him in his sleep which causes him to miss her more than he already has. Sometimes, he would just look out at the window and hold onto her necklace. . . a necklace he gave her on their first date.

They met back in Texas, at a carnival. He called it as?love at first sight?because one glance at her, he knew she'd be the love of his life. Apparently, their friends were the matchmakers. They had paired them up during the whole night at the carnival, rode different rides together and even ate cotton candies, for the first time.

She never had them before.

It was hard for them. He was a country boy who had a barn and she was the city girl who came to the countryside just because her grandmother was dying—they knew they were fated together and they started to see each other more often, even without her father's permission.

Things were different back then, as told by Albert. All it ever took to confirm his love for her was just by spending time together—they went through all the things that would only appear in movies but it was real for them, dancing in the middle of the street when it was raining and even picnicking in the garden with home-cooked food by him.

After all those nicely spent weeks, he was going to lose her because he was only a poor country boy with no fortune, her father had disagree when he wanted to ask her hand in marriage—he wanted to have her forever, as his wife.

Yet, they both loved each other more than anything else in the world. She had ran away with him, left everything behind her when they eloped. It was the bes

windows, revealing Dimitri at the driver's seat and Aidan at the passenger's seat.

''Get in, loser.'' Dimitri says as he lifts down his sunglasses.

''We're going shopping, '' Aidan continues.

Then, they both begin to laugh. All of a sudden, Dimitri begins to wink at another doctor who seems to have passed them before smiling back at him—leaving him eyeing her legs. Well, that is definitely Dimitri when it comes to women. . . he loves them.

''Are you guys stupid or just pretending to be stupid? I'm working, '' I reply as I take a few steps closer towards the car, causing Dimitri to look up at as he holds onto his sunglasses, leaving it on the bridge of his nose.

''I don't want to do it but you're making me do it, '' He replies which causes me to frown but before I can say another word, he begins to press harder and longer onto the car's horn. People are already glancing towards our direction but he pays no attention to stop.

My eyes widen as I reach out to grab him by the neck but he quickly presses up the windows, leaving me hitting my fist onto the windows, itself. I groan loudly at the pain before trying to peek through the dark tinted windows and taking a few steps back, knocking hardly.

''Someone's going to call the cops!'' I shout through the loud honking before it stops for a few seconds, as he presses down the window again—both of his eyes meeting mine.

Aidan is left laughing at the side by Dimitri's childish behaviour, ''Come on, Kenna. Just get in the car and we don't have to continue this any further, '' Dimitri places his index finger onto the horn, attempting to press it again but I quickly surrender by entering the car.

''You two are?assholes, '' I groan, slamming the door.

Dimitri smirks as he glances up at the rear-view mirror before pressing onto the gas pedal, making the car go forward in fast pace. ''Don't you miss me? We haven't seen each other in a week!'' He says as he taps onto the steering wheel, according to the beat of the music.

I move forward, in between Aidan and Dimitri before smacking onto the side of his temple which leaves him groaning in pain. ''Hey! Doctors aren't supposed to hurt people but actually do the opposite, '' He mumbles under his breath as he glances at me.

As I'm about to smack him one more time, Aidan grabs onto my wrist before slowly making me stop my previous intention. He turns to look at me, ''You're going to ruin the ring!'' He says, examining the ring up close, leaving me rolling my eyes in annoyance.

''First couple's fight. Cute!'' Dimitri exclaims as he turns the volume louder, making me lean back in my seat and cross my arms at his behaviour.

It's not something rare to see him or them like this, we're always somehow childish around one another but today doesn't seem like a good day for me to be joining them. Somehow, it's funny to be looking at them behaving this way when they're all devilish mean and tough whenever in public but when they're with me. . . they're just like a bunch of kids.

''Why are we going shopping?'' I ask, grabbing both of their attention.

''To impress your future mother-in-law, '' Dimitri replies with a sly smirk plastered onto his face as he presses harder onto the gas pedal but to only stop at the heavy traffic.
