I got weak, didn’t know what to do. I went to the dining room (I needed to feed my hungry soul), took a seat, I saw a dish, excited! I sat right and positioned myself in anticipation of what meal it was. I opened it with a smile on my face, suddenly; my facial expression changed, “what’s this?”, it was a note, I opened and started reading “I believe you are awake now, we all went for a family weekend at the beach, we would be back, soothe yourself” I was sad, how could they have left me!, what pained me most was aspect of the beach, it was my idea we go to the beach someday, perhaps during a holiday, and now I have just lost a chance to visit the beach I have wished to visit for long, due to the foolish idea from my dumb brain.
