The week wasn't her best week. It seemed like there was extra work to do since the holiday was getting closer.
Precious had kept giving her reasons to quit and make a run for it.
Su Yan had made it his duty to stop by at her place three times already and she couldn't complain.
Her siblings were coming back the next day and that means she had less than 6 hours to Christmas shop for everyone without the hassle of rushing last minute shopping. She's has made enough bad decisions to last a life time, thank you very much!
It was 5pm and close work. She had been waiting for the clock to strike 5 for 10minutes and it was the longest 10 minutes of her life.
She was out the door and down the stairs of the church admin building when she was sure the earth started spinning. She held the rails for support when her legs gave way.
"Good lord" The pain in her chest felt like it spread over to her back and waist in less than 30 seconds.
"I've been eating a lot where is this coming from, unless this wasn't ulcer anymore" She finally took the floor of the stairs as she rummaged through her bag for her pills.
She popped five of it at once for the extra pain.. She was chewing on it when the lady who worked at the bookshop of the church, with a worried look on her face came to her.
"Are you alright Ire?" Sometimes people called her by her family name, she always minded it but not today. "I'm good, i just need a minute to rest" the pain was still same but she didn't feel her back was about to snap anymore.
"What's going on?"
"It's just a lil ulcer, I'd be fine"
"A little ulcer? Ire ulcer isn't to be joked with. I see how hard you work and the stress you saddle yourself with..." Judith was still talking but that was all she heard.
She had come to believe all she did here was not noticed and she never took it to heart as she understood it was a work environment. She wasn't the only hardworking person they had. Quite frankly she would take a vacation around the world any day if she could and that thought made her believe she wasn't that much of a hard worker, she just did what she had to do because she was meant to do jt.
... You should take care of yourself more, eat more." Judith finished.
"Yes. Thank you, I definitely will do that."
"You should try to eat a lot of cabbage as it helps"
"What! Since when" she kept thinking as Judith helped her to her feet.
"Sure, I will get some I promise. Thank you and sorry for taking your time."
"Nonsense, it's no trouble at all."
She got to the mall and had to take Judith's word for it as she picked up two large cabbage in her cart.
Three hours later...
She was home. She had rushed through the shelves for the gifts she had in mind, she had what she wanted to get in her head so it wasn't a big deal. She had found herself leaning over her trolley thrice whenever the pain hit her, but not as worse as before but it made its presence known.
The cashier was gracious enough to read the pain she was going through on her face and speedily made her purchase a breeze.
She was just going to climb into bed and sleep, sleep made everything better, well most things.
Her siblings were back in her parents house already but they'll be coming over the next day hoping that she would be better tomorrow, she slipped into a dreamless sleep.
The knocking was getting louder by the minute.
Whoever it was better have a good reason for being at her house at 7.30am
She struggled to open her eyes before walking to the door.
She looked like a huge mess and was sure of it.
"Why are you two here so early? What's happening?"
They replied her by wrapping her in a bear hug. She was the first child but the smallest, her younger brother Tayo (1) stood at a good 6'1 while her sister Dupe (2) stood at a 5'8. They all looked nothing alike at first glance, their simi
