A step into love Episode 25 & 26

All of them remained on a spot for about five minutes, staring at Cindy who's still lying on the bed and expecting her to wake up or shake her hand again but nothing happened, all hope began to vanish as they sighed one by one and shook their heads as if it's not possible or Angelina have just lied.
"I'm sure of what I'm saying, please believe me. Cindy please do something, shake your body, wake up" she instructed as she stared at Cindy on the bed but her mom signaled to her to stop talking at least since no one seems to believe her.
Charles continue to stare at Cindy, hoping for her to wake up as he folded her hand in his, he lowered and bend his head on Cindy hand after getting tired of staring. Austin walked up to his side sadly and nestle his head on Charles' shoulder while his mom, Mrs Kate Anderson move up to him and patted his other shoulder as she sobbed silently.
Suddenly, Charles' head tilted up and he spun his head towards Cindy, curiosity and anticipation were written on his face
"she just shook her hand, I felt it" he blurted out and all of them turned to him, staring at Cindy with anticipation of her to wake up again.
Three minutes later as they were about to resign to faith again, Cindy groaned louder that all of them could hear, they immediately moved closer to her expecting more to confirm, while Angelina shouted her name which make her to open her eyes.
Cindy opened her eyes but was frightened by the countless heads and eyes on her, most of which she couldn't recognize, she quickly closed back her eyes and gulped down,
"Cindy" she heard a familiar voice called her name besides her, so she quickly turned her face to the direction and opened her eyes trying not to take notice of the numerous eyes staring at her,
"Cindy, is that you? Do you recognize me?" Charles asked again but Cindy stared back at him, speechless with no expression written on her face.
"Cindy" Charles called again when Cindy haven't answer her for about two minutes he'd asked her question
"Charles?" Cindy replied changing her unknown expression to happy one, Charles was extremely glad that she could recognize him and also recalled his name, at least that means nothing is wrong with her brain which also means she's alright, he took Cindy's hand,folded it with his hand and put it on his head, smiling broadly amidst tears.
"Cindy" Angelina called and Cindy turned to her and smiled broadly "Angelina?" she called amidst tears, Mrs Kate bend over to Cindy and hugged her with tears of joy,
The atmosphere of the environment changed as sadness turned into Joy.

"it's so good to meet you Mr and Mrs Anderson and I'm sure Mr Charles would have explained everything that happened to you" the doctor began as he pointed to Charles when he mentioned his name.
After the good news of Cindy waken up, the doctor had carry out some test which he's about to disclose the outcome of it
"I'm so happy for Miss Cindy at the same time, she's so lucky to have survived such thing and I say congratulations to you all" he paused and sighed "the main reason for assembly the three of you here is to give you the results of our test and I'm assuring you that Cindy's alright but..."
"but what" Mr Anderson cut in impatiently while Mrs Anderson and Charles tried to remain calm but looked worried.
The doctor just sighed and shook his head "her shoulder's joint has been dislocated due to the bullet of the gunshot"
"what?" Charles clamored and stood up abruptly, staring at the doctor........

"Doctor, what did you just say?" Mrs Anderson asked flabbergasted
"I'm sorry Mrs Anderson, we tried all our possible best but we're not God. Cindy wouldn't be able to control the arm for now and as 'for now' that I just used, it means miracle can still happen like it just did but for now, it would be uncontrollable"
"Doctor" Charles called "can't you find something to do to it?, I mean she needs the arm, it's her right hand and she's loosing it because of me?" he sobbed
"Doc please, you can find something to do to it, please do something, I'm sure of it and money is not our problem, we'll give you any amount" Mr Anderson pleaded
"Mr Barry, I'm sure you know me very well, Mooney is not really my main target in my Job, it's the outcome, the good result and what I'm saying right now is the truth but don't worry, you'll just need to be bringing her here subsequently for more check up and surgery when needed. I'm sure she'll be fine afterwards"
Charles sat back on his seat slothfully and rested his head on the table while his mother patted his back.

Anderson's Residence
"hey" Angelina called as she stepped out of the house to the backyard where Charles and Cindy were seated chatting in the cool atmospheric condition
"Angelina?" Cindy called "what's up?"
"Everything's good" "I bet you guys are in the mood" she rolled her eyes and winked "don't let me be an interrupter" she smiled and made to leave
"come on girl, you're not an interrupter at all cause I already need your attention here and that shows that you are the biological child of your father for being present when needed without calling for" Charles replied while Cindy smiled
"Really?" Angelina asked as she turned back "in need of my attention?"
"yes dear" Cindy smiled
"OK then" Angelina replied as she joined them on the seat, sitting beside Cindy "And how's your health?, I hope you are going to the hospital consequently"
"of course. Thank you so much" Cindy replied
"so you think I'm here for nothing right? You think I wouldn't take her for the check up even if it require dragging and forcing?" Charles asked
Angelina laughed and replied "I trust you" "especially now that you're doing all her work for her, writing and other things. I'm sure it's not easy but Kudos to you"
"Hm hm" Cindy coughed "don't worry, I'll collect my work soon, I'm feeling more better and I think the joint is restraining. The Doctor also said the surgery will be carry out sooner cause I seems to be relieving faster"
"that's good to hear" Angelina replied
"yeah so good to hear after all years" Charles said
"Is that a Rap?" Angelina giggled
"sure, such of him as usual" Cindy chuckled
"making jest of me?" Charles asked
"obvious" Cindy remarked and tucked her tongue out at him
"so what do you guys call me for?"
"To explain to me how you got to know Cindy's whereabouts with John which made you to call me that day" Charles asked and everything died down and went silent,
Angelina sighed immediately she heard this while Cindy face her with unknown expression and their gaze met.............
