But It Keeps On Lingering...
A hard knock on the door somehow roused Karla's staggered mind. Someone has been calling her name and banging her door for almost 15 minutes already, that's why Mama Gee got the duplicate keys and was forced to open her room.
"Oh my God! What is wrong with you, Kaye? Oh my dear, please tell mama what's been bothering you?" As Mama Gee approached, she hugged her daughter and fixed Karla's long hair scattered almost covering her face. She couldn't believe that her most beloved child is drowning in misery. She's her only child and it hurts deeply to see her in that dreadful condition.
"Okay. You get up! Take a shower and we will go visit your Uncle Reily. He will be so thrilled to see you. It's past 11am already and he's probably resting from his first administered mass. I will not just sit here and watch you cry all day!"
"No more excuses Kaye! Just do as I told you. I'm doing this to help you." Mama Gee was teary eyed but she controlled her true sentiments. She didn't want her daughter to see the weakness in her. She is her strength... and vice versa.
