"Mom, we've got one week holidays and I need you here to pick me up", I said excitedly over the phone. "Sorry sunny, I can't come as I'm in hospital now" said my mom in a grim tone. "What !? What happened?" I asked in anxiety slowly faded my joy away. "It's dad. He had brain hemorrhage and I actually thought of calling you and uncle here because I need to get to work for the money and insurance covers" said my mom and call was cut. In a total dimness, I prayed principal's office for permission and rushed as fast I could to see my father in city hospital. It was ennui to watch my dearest father on a bed, with all the wires on him, weird instruments.
Days passed ruthlessly, my mom was busy working overtime after a minor revival of dad's health to meet the medical expenses. Before realizing the wild speed of days I spent, I was one and a half months away from my high school. It'd take half a month for my dad's recovery to a good extent and I was going on through a series of notices from my college. Finally, after two months, I was able to leave my dad to mom and attend college.
I taught myself all the chapters in subjects I've missed, through a regular and tough planning in 12 days to write my exams that would earn me a tuition fee waiver. All the teachers and my friend were amazed to my report as I stood 3rd in my class, thereby qualifying for tuition fee waiver.
This situation helped me to deal with life and reality, especially with the unexpected. This situation gave me a chance to serve me father as well as I could.
Please help me out! (I'm not good at English)
