Nick turned to look at me but I didn't glance at him. Taking slow steps , I went and stood beside Ethan's bed. There he was lying with a bandage around his head. A number of tubes were attached to his small body. He looked so fragile that my heart clenched with agony . My poor baby!
I softly stroke his cheek and looked at his face for a few more minutes before the doctor arrived. He checked Ethan before speaking.
" Mr. Carter, Ethan's health is stable now but he has to stay here for a week or more than that but that depends on how well he recovers. If you want, one of you can stay the nights with him."
"Thank you doctor." Nick replied. After the doctor left, there was an uncomfortable silence between us.
" Uhh I will leave." I didn't wait for his answer. I closed the door behind me and went to where Char and Ryan were standing.
