Max sighed and went out, he went to his other house.
“Good morning son” his mom greeted looking outside “where’s your wife?”
”She’s at home” he replied
”Why isn’t she here? I was hoping to see her” she said
”She is tired and you can go see her later,” he said.
”Alright why are you here?” she asked
”I’m here to take chess for a checkup,” he said
”Why are you the one taking her? Why isn’t Chloe here?” Ava asked
”She’s tired” he replied,” where is chess?”
”She’s in her room” she replied.
Max went upstairs and knocked on Chelsea’s door “chess it Max”
“Good morning Max” she greeted
“Are you ready? You have to go to the hospital today” he said
”Yeah, but why are you the one taking me? she asked
“Your sister is tired,” he said.
“Alright I’ll get ready now” she replied
After a few moments, Chelsea went downstairs and they drove to the hospital
Max was sitting on a chair in the doctor’s office “when will the results be out?”
“Soon Mr Mondragon but are you sure about this?” he asked
”Yes, just let me know when the results are out,” he said.
“umm, Max can you please help me with something?” Chelsea asked
”What’s that?” he asked turning to her.
“I lost the medicine the nurse gave me,” she said
“Alright wait here,” he said and turn to the doctor ” I’ll be back”
After Max left she went to the doctor” what test are you running on Max, is he sick?
“No, I can’t tell you” he replied.
“If you don’t then I’m going to lie to Max that you are not a good doctor,” she said with her hands across her chest.
He sighed “he wants to know if he is a match for your bone marrow transfer”
“What? Why? What about Kyle?” she asked.
”He doesn’t want to go into surgery and he broke up with your sister I guess,” he said
“What? Why would Kyle do that?” she asked
”I don’t know but I think you should ask your sister,” he said
”Why is it dangerous for Max to go into surgery?” she asked.
”He went into surgery three years ago after he had a car accident with his dad which kill him, if he goes into surgery again he might not survive it,” he said.
”What? Then why would he still do it?” She asked
“I don’t know I think I’ve told you enough,” he said
”Please tell me why he is willing” she pleaded.
”Chess I can’t find any and the nurse said she never gave you a medication,” Max said going Inside
”Uh umm I…I ..must have made a mistake” she said stammering
”Alright let go,” he said and Chelsea walked out of the office ” I’ll come back for the results”
“Max can we drop at your other house, I want to see Chloe,” she said.
”Sure” he replied and they drove to his house
”Chloe!!” Chelsea called hugging her sister really tight.
“Hey! What are you doing here?” She asked totally surprised
“Am I not allowed to visit my sister?” She asked pulling from the hug
“No I just wasn’t expecting you,” she said.
”I’m just coming back from the hospital so I decided to drop by,” she said
”I’ll be in my room,” Max said and went upstairs.
”Chloe why didn’t you tell me about you and Kyle?” she asked
”What? Who told you? It must be Max” she said
”No I heard it from someone else, and I figured out why Max wants to be a donor,” she said.
”What do you mean by Max wants to be a donor?” she asked totally confused
”He asked the doctor to run some tests on him about it even when he knew it’s dangerous,” she said.
”What do you mean by it dangerous?” she asked
”His father died in a car accident and Max only survived, it’s after a series of surgery, if he goes into another surgery he might not survive it,” she said.
”Are you saying Max is willing to risk his life for you?” she asked
”Not for me but for you” she replied.
”No he is way too selfish he won’t” she replied
”I don’t know why he is doing this but the Max I saw today is sad, I will no longer bother you about your decision, please help him out,” she said.
Chloe couldn’t reply to her when Max came downstairs ” let go chess it getting late”
He drove her home and brought their food along.
“Why aren’t you eating?” Chloe ask Max after he set the table which was for a person
“I’m not hungry” he replied.
“Max I’m sorry for giving you a hard time, I don’t know where all this is coming from so please eat something,” she said giving him a puppy face.
”I’m just not hungry,” he said with a faint smile
“I’m not hungry either,” Chloe said
“No you have to eat for at least for the baby,” he said
”If you want me to eat then you should eat something too,” she said.
He smiled, he was happy seeing her like that, he sat down and they started eating
After dinner, Chloe went to Max’s room he was sitting on his bed with his laptop beside him.
“I’m sorry I didn’t knock” she apologized
“It’s fine why are you here? Can’t you sleep?” he asked
”No I just want to thank you,” she said.
“For what?” He asked
“For everything, especially for Chelsea,” she said and he nodded.
”Max, can I ask why you are so concerned about us?” She asked
“It’s nothing I just felt like it was the right thing,” he said
”No, I know it’s something else,” she said sitting on his bed.
”Chloe the truth is…….I love you” he said and her eyes widened
What do you think her reply will be?.
