We rushed down to the hospital, I and Yusuf. I was rambling and sniffing because I didn't know what the future held.

I was scared.

"It's okay, he will be fine" he said, rubbing my back soothingly with one of his hand and the other to drive.

We arrived at the hospital, I rushed out of the car without waiting for Yusuf to park.

I walked straight into the elevator without seeing the security man who wanted to questioned me. Yusuf stood behind, answered all the questions. I'd pressed the button where papa was before he jogged inside the elevator before it closed.

I strode out of it and saw ummi, uncle shuaib who was my maternal uncle and my younger bro. Ummi was on the floor crying while Uncle shuaib was comforting her.

I ran to ummi and started to tear up.

"Mum, what happened"I asked, using my hand to wiped my running nose.

"I don't know_know"she stuttered, "we were eating this morning, then _then he..."she sobbed.

"Then what..."my words were shut when the Doctor came to us.

I stood abruptly, "what happened to him?, how is he?, _is he okay?" I bombarded the Doctor with questions.

He smiled softly at me "he's doing well but he asked of his daughter, who is she?"

I stood straight, "me, I'm his daughter"Yusuf stood beside me.

"But before you go in, he want your husband to check on him" he glanced at Yusuf as if knew he was my husband, "He asked of you too"he faced Yusuf while he nodded his head.

"Wifey, I'm coming. Be strong"he whispered and kiss my forehead before he left.

"Mom, what do you think papa want to see Yusuf?"I asked cinfusedly.

"I don't know bintii*." She replied. (*my daughter)

I saw Yusuf coming out of the room looking in deep thoug

hen with all the tear up.

"We are sorry, we tried our best but the person who owns life has taken it back"he said sentimentally and walked away.

"Whhhhattttttt"she wailed while Yusuf gulped nervously.

"Inna Lillahi Wa inna ilahi rojiun" he murmured under his breath.

"That's impossible, I saw him now, we were talking and and and...."her legs gave out while Yusuf quickly snaked his arm around before she fell.

She scouted toward him, then looked at him with stained cheek "is this how people die?"she asked softly.

"Shhh, issokay"I said, rubbing her back.

"It's not, you don't understand. He's my role model, my father, he's my rock..."she sobbed. It pained him to see her crying, he hate seeing her crying.

"I understand, then I promise to be your rock, your comforter, your companion, your friend" he promised her.

"Can I hug you"she asked timidly, Yusuf was shocked before he regained himself and wanted to reply before she cut him off. "It's okay if you don't want to, I just want some hug. I want you to hold me and feel your body..." he didn't let her finish before he scooped her.

And he hugged her.
