Steven Eight years ago “mom, wake up” i shake my
mother but she doesn’t move. I
look to her bedside table and see the glass of
wine and her pill bottle. My
mother is schizophrenic. Its a mental
illness and sometimes she doesn’t
know what she’s doing. I am just
nineteen years old but i have
been taking care of her for as long as i can
remember. I even opted to study
in a polytechnic close to our house in
pti just so i could watch her. You are probably asking where my
father is, but like you, i don’t
know. He has never been in the picture and
anytime i asked my mother she
goes emotional on me so i stopped
asking a long time ago. My mom
has been living on pills for years now to
suppress her imaginations and hallucinations which are caused
by her illness. Last night, i got stalled because of a tutorial class
and by the time i finished, it was already 9:28pm. There was a
government imposed curfew and
i wasn’t able to go home. I slept at a
friend’s in school. As soon as it
was safe enough to leave, i came
home. I knocked the door and when
there was no reply, i knew
something was wrong. I used my keys to open
the door and immediately went to
her room. I called an ambulance and
they are probably on their way
here by now. I try to wake her up but she
doesn’t open her eyes. I place my fingers under her nose and feel
faint breathes on my hand. I sag
in relief. The ambulance comes and
my mother is taken to the
hospital. After checking her, the doctor

assures me that she is fine, she
is just very drunk. I thank the doctor then
walk out of her room for some
fresh air. Her room smells of antiseptic
and everything else that
permeates a hospital air. Outside her room
isn’t any better but atleast it isn’t suffocating. Being in there, seeing
her like that, almost brings me to my knees in misery. I cant help
her so i feel so helpless. I don’t know what else to do. If my
useless father was here, maybe
she would be better. Anytime she, has one of
her ‘episodes’, she calls me Leonard. I think that’s my father’s
name. I raise my head up when i hear a door open and i see a girl
of about 16 or so. She’s crying
and screaming for the nurses holding
her back to save her brother. I
look on as she is directed to a chair at a
corner to wait. She sits on the chair then cover her face with her
hands as she cries more. I should ignore her and think about my
own predicament, but my feet
starts moving towards her. I sit on the
chair beside her but she doesn’t
even notice. “he will be fine” i say silently.

She looks up then throws her hands around me as she ramble about
everything being her fault. “i left him alone. I shouldnt have. I
just wanted to have some alone time. I didn’t know that he would
walk into the pool. I am the worst sister ever”
she says “its not your fault. God is in
control, don’t worry, everything
would be fine”
i say then rub her back.

She withdraws from me then look
up at my eyes and i smile at her. “thank you” she says, wiping her
tears “you are welcome sweets” she
smiles and my heart goes warm.

Her smile seems to light up the whole
emergency ward and wipe away
all my stress. Its like we are both in a
bubble with nothing but the both
of us. I continue to smile like an idiot
at her until my mom’s doctor comes out and tell me to follow
him to his office. I stand to leave and her face falls. I want to stay
but i cant. I look at her for a second then remove the bracelet
on my wrist and hand it to her. “take this. Its my lucky charm” i
expect her to laugh in my face but she takes it and put in on her right
wrist. She gives me a wane smile and i sigh as i turn to follow the
doctor. I turn back and wave her goodbye. She waves me back and
smile. I notice she’s crying
through her smile. There’s nothing i can do
to help so i continue walking with the doctor. “your mom’s schizophrenia is
getting worse Steven. We need to
confine her before she hurts someone or
even herself”
he says as soon as i sit. “we don’t have that kind of
money sir” “you need to figure something
out. I don’t like her results”
tells me. I nod my head and walk
dejected out of his office, towards
my mom’s room. When i get there,
she isn’t in her room. I rush out to
the nurse station and i am told that
she just walked out. What kind of nurses let their patient leave like
that?. They probably thought she was well as she looked healthy. I
run out of the hospital which is along the road and look around.

Suddenly, i hear someone shout. I
turn my head to see my mother in the
middle of the road and the girl i
just gave my bracelet too is trying to
drag her off the road. My mom is bulging though. They seen to be
struggling and a lorry is coming towards them. I run towards
them. My legs doesn’t seem to run
fast enough as everything happen in
slow motion. Only the lorry seem
to be coming in fast motion. My mom is
pushed off the road by the girl before the lorry sweeps her(the
strange girl) off the road. “no!” i scream for the girl. There is
blood everywhere.
