Elva’s POV💎

My throat is getting dry so i got up from the bed and walked out of my room with the novel in hand,i want to go get a glass cup of water from the kitchen,i was reading the novel while walking to the kitchen..

I wasn’t even aware there was a stool in front of me,i tripped falling loudly to the floor,i gripped my hand on the table to steady me but the table tumbled on top of me with a loud bang,the flower vase hitting my head..I scre-med out in pain…
I pushed the table off me and i felt a sharp object piercing my ankle, i cried out as i saw my ankle bleeding with a deep cut and the worst part of everything..the novel is torn..

His favourite novel !!

I should have just kept it in the room but i was engrossed in it,it was the cause of my fall cause i was read-walking and didn’t even notice the stool in front of me and now his novel is torn.

He had warned me not to allow it get torn.
He’s so gonna be pissed at me..Arrrrgh.
I heard footsteps and quickly hid the novel in my back..The door opened and Mig rushed in.
My heart beat faster as he walked closer to me.
“OMG you are bleeding,what happened ?” He asked worriedly, crouching in front of me.

“I wanted to get a glass cup of water from the kitchen,i didn’t notice the stool in front of me so i tripped over it and fell..sorry for making you worried,you can go resume what you were doing,i’m okay” I said staring at his worried face.
‘Oh…God…His novel’ I thought in fear.
“No you aren’t okay,your bandage is soaked in blood and you also have a deep cut on your ankle..I have to call Fleur” He said worriedly,he stoop up walking towards the telephone placed on a shelf.

“No don’t call her,i’m okay..She might be busy” I said but he ignored me punching some numbers into the telephone.
If only he knew his novel is torn,he will kick me hard rather than calling Fleur to my aid.
“Hey Fleur” He said into the receiver..Elva is badly hurt ”

“Ok be quick,i will take her to her room” He said before dropping the call..He walked back to me .

“Sorry,i know the pain is probably unbearable” He said and stretched his hand to me wanting me to take it but i can’t cause i was still holding the torn novel tightly behind my back.
“Is your hand hurting also ?” He asked and i quickly nodded.

“Oh..Sorry let me see it” He said ..I shook my head,my fears increased..He may not take it lightly.
“Hm” He sighed..”Let me carry you to your room then” He said and my eyes widened…God !! He’s really getting close to carry me..He’s gonna see his torn novel and yell at me.

“No” I said afraid…Bringing up my hand to disagree,i didn’t realise that was the hand i was using to hold the novel, it spilled out and i felt my body vibrate,he took a long surprised look at it then buried his face in his palms,his hands pushing through his soft hair.
He’s pissed at me !!
“I’m sorry..I promise to get another copy for you,please i’m so sorry,it wasn’t intentional,it got torn when i tripped over the stool..Am so sorry” I said feeling bad,wishing he would just look up at me.

He did and it was with a smile.


He smiled!

He isn’t pissed at me!

He chuckled and said “Was that the reason you didn’t want me to take your hand”
“Yes” I said surprised at his cool tone…I mean i just tore his novel..He’s supposed to get mad!

” Ofcourse I’m not pissed at you,it wasn’t intentional,i can always get another copy from the bookstore,you don’t have to feel bad about it okay” He said and i nodded, glad he didn’t yell or get pissed at me.

“Thanks Mig” I said.
“So can you take my hand now?” He asked and i nodded,he stretched his hand forward and i took it.
He pulled me up..
I yelped
I had sprained my ankle during the fall.

“Sorry Elva” He said and i nodded.
He crossed his arm round my shoulder using it to support my body,my hand was at my back.
Sharp pain tore though my ankle at every step i took and i kept p-nting.
Mig suddenly carried me in his arms and i almost gasped .
He carried me like i weigh nothing,he didn’t even show any discomfort but smiled instead.
“I thought it will be easier and faster this way” He said grinning and i smiled, i didnt know how i ended up resting my head comfortably on his chest and closing my eyes..

His broad chest is far more comfortable than a pillow,i felt warm and safe in his hands..All my pains gone.
I didn’t know he had gotten to my door until he used his leg to kick it open and walked inside towards my bed.
“Oh..noo i don’t want to be released from his arms,i want to stay there forever” I said inwardly..

I felt him lowered me into the bed and i opened my eyes,the warmth and comfort is gone..The pains have returned..He sat beside me and took my hand in his,i felt good but not as good as i felt when i was in his arms.
It’s better than nothing though..

The door opened and we saw fleur rushed in.
“What happened?” She asked worriedly dropping her shoulder bag on the bed.
“She tripped over the stool and fell” Mig said.
“Ohhh…Sorry Elva” Fleur said.
“Thanks Fleur”.
“Mig can you please get me the first Aid box in my room,i have to change this soaked bandage and also apply some antiseptic on her ankle injury” Fleur said and Mig stood up to go get it.
“Sorry for making you worried and interrupting your work” I said to Fleur.
“No it’s okay” She said.

Mig returned with the first aid box,fleur took it snapped it open and wore her gloves,then she loosened the bandage and placed it in a disposable nylon…She cleaned off the
blood on my head and ankle with cotton wool before applying antiseptic,i winced at the stinging pain.
She rolled out clean bandage and wrapped it round my head severally before clipping it.

She cut out a new cotton wool,placed it on my ankle,and brought out a bandaid,she placed it on the wound.
“You won’t be able to walk fine for some days” She said..She dropped the blood stained things in a disposable nylon before removing her gloves.
She took a pack of medication from the first Aid box then poured some brightly coloured pills in a small saucer.

“Mig please a glass cup of water” Fleur said ..Mig walked out of the room to get it.
He returned with the water and Fleur handed the pills to me with water.
“It will make you sleep and relieve your pains before you wake up” Fleur said and i nodded..
I dropped the pills on my tongue and washed it down with water.
Fleur pumped the pillow behind my head making sure i’m comfortable.
“Thanks” I said.
And in few minutes,i was starting to feel sleepy,the medication works real fast.

“Mig let’s leave her to sleep,i have some things to discuss with you” That was the last thing i heard before falling into a deep slumber.

Mig’s POV💎

“Mig let’s leave her to sleep,i have some things to discuss with you” Fleur said, walking out of Elva’s room.
I took a last glance at the sleeping Elva and smiled,she had felt so small and warm in my arms,i walked out of the room,closing the door gently.
I walked to the living room and met Fleur sitting on a couch.
I jumped beside her and she flinched sending me a glare,i chuckled and stretched out my legs.

“Mig i’m thinking of something” Fleur said.
“Ok what’s that ?” I asked.
“Hmm…I’m thinking we should announce Elva on the T.V and radio station,her family might come around” She said.

“What !” I exclaimed…Why do you want to do that ? don’t you like her or what ?” I asked.
“No i didn’t mean it that way..Her family would have been worried sick about her and i also thought she may badly want to return to her family but she might just be timid to say anything” She said.
“I know but we can’t do that..Not yet and besides she didn’t say anything about her family,she’s enjoying her stay here and we also like to have someone around” I said .

“Yes i like her company but we have to be considerate,her family might be out there looking for her and we won’t announce that we found a missing person just because we like her company..That’s very selfish of us then” Fleur said and i also gave it a deep thought.
“It’s true Fleur but we have to let her heal first and get back to her feet before we can do that” I said.
“Ok it’s settled then,i have to get back to work, my shift isn’t over yet” Fleur said getting up.
“Ok Fleur, Bye” I said.
“Bye” She said and walked out.
I stood up and walked to the kitchen, brought out the ingredients i needed to make meat loaf..
Ofcourse i’m a very good cook.

Elva needs to take something when she wakes up.
I started cooking,walking to and fro in the kitchen.


Meal loaf is ready !!
I dished it out in a big plate,covering it..I kept it in the freezer, planning to microwave it for Elva once she wakes.
I washed the pot and other cooking utensils used to prepare the meal.
I finished doing that,dried my hands with a napkin and walked out of the kitchen..Heading to Elva’s room…

I opened the door and she was still deeply asleep,i know it will take some time before she wakes. Why don’t i just get another copy of the torn novel before she wakes up.
I scurried out of her room ,walked into mine and took enough cash before walking out of the house.

I started trekking to the Bookshop down the street.


Luckily,i purchased the last copy of the novel,i paid the lady behind the desk and was about walking away when i sighted another novel.
“Lone eagle by Danielle steel” I read it out and walked towards it,i picked it up and read the summary and i was ‘wowed’..

I walked back to the lady and paid for the novel also, ignoring the glances she’s sending my way.
I walked away grinning.
“I should be fast,Elva would have been awake by now” I thought and hurried home.
I entered the house,dropped the novels on the couch and walked straight to Elva’s room.
I opened the door and walked in.

I was right.

She’s awake,sitting up on the bed,her lips curved in a smile as i walked towards her,i smiled back.

“Hey how are you feeling now ?” I asked.
“Much more better, thanks. Where is Fleur ?” She asked.
“She has gone back to work” I said and she nodded.
“Uhm” She sighed, looking at me shyly.
“What ?” I asked.

“I’m thinking if i can just get a little meal,my stomach is..” She sighed.
“Ohh…Okay,come with me to the dining,i just prepared Meat loaf” I said.
“Really ?” She asked.
“Yes” I said and she smiled standing up from the bed.
I walked ahead her.
“Ouch” I heard and turned.
She’s holding on to the bed for support.

My bad.

I’ve forgotten she had sprained her ankle.
“Sorry Elva i’ve forgotten you sprained your ankle” I said and took two long strides towards her before scooping her into my arms..i heard her gasp and i smiled.
I lowered her into a dining chair and she muttered a ‘Thank you”.
I walked to the kitchen and quickly plugged on the microwave,i slipped the meal into it and closed it back,leaving it to heat up i walked back to the dining room.
“The meal is in the microwave,we just have to wait for few minutes for it to heat up” I said and sat across her.
“Ohh..Okay” She said.

“I went to purchase another copy of the novel,while you were asleep” I said and her face lit up.
“Really ?” She asked.
“Yes” I said.
“It’s so interesting and i can’t wait to continue reading it…What of the torn copy ?” She asked.
“Uh..that ? I’ve shoved it in the library shelf” I said and she nodded.

“I also purchased a new novel” I said.
“Really? Is it also the same author’s novel?” She asked and i shook my head.
“Lone eagle by Danielle steels” I said.
“Wow,the name tells it all,its sure gonna be interesting” She said.
“Yes,the summary made me pick it” I said
“Where is it?” She asked.

“The living room” I said and stood up,walked to the couch where i kept the novels,i picked it up and walked back to Elva.
I dropped it in front of her and sat,she looked at the two novels, checking them out with a smile.

“Wow, as soon as im done with this..”Lone eagle” is next” She said, smiling.
“And who says i will borrow you the novels” I teased.
“Huh” She said nervously,scratching her hair..”Sorry i didn’t know you were not gonna borrow me” She said with a pale face dropping the novels back on the table.

I laughed.

“Com’on,i was only joking” I said still laughing.
“Really?” She asked.
“Yes i was only joking,you can resume reading that one while i start with”Lone eagle” then i will give it to you after i’m done” I said.
“Thank you” She beamed.

“Let’s set the novels aside for now,we will continue after lunch” I said dropping the two novels on the chair before walking to the kitchen to check the meal.
It’s well heated,i switched off the microwave before bringing out the meal,i placed it on the kitchen counter and dished it into two plates, leaving some for Fleur.

I placed the two plates of meat loaf in a tray and carried it to the dining room.
I placed Elva’s meal in front of her and also placed mine on the table.
I walked back to the kitchen and returned to the dining room with two bottles of water and glass cups.

Elva has started eating already,i placed a table of water with a glass cup in front of her.
“Thanks Mig” She said and i nodded before sitting down to start eating.
We’ve finished eating and i’m now in the kitchen washing our dishes, Elva offered to help but i declined.
She’s waiting for me in the dining room…I gotta hurry.
I finished washing the dishes and placed them in the drain board.
I dried my hand with the napkin and walked back to meet her.

“I’m done with the dishes” I said.
“Ok” She said and stood up,she flinched in pain but quickly cover it up with a smile. She doesn’t want to bother me by carrying her again but i don’t care.
I carried her in my arms and headed to the living room,i placed her gently on the couch before sitting beside her.

“Thanks Mig” She said and i nodded.
I picked up “Lone eagle” and started reading.


Thanks for reading 😚
