A day after Jim had left to see Dr . Aijohn, Jia found an excuse to go to the city . She just couldn't wait for another day to know the whole truth .

Halfway before she reached the city, she called up Dr . Aijohn .

"Where are you? " She asked .

"Bad mood? " Koko sensed harshness in her tone .

" I want to eat you! " She said, not laughing at all .

"Anna, what's the matter? Your throwing tantrums again because you miss him? " Koko laughed, giving a wink towards the man across him .

"I'm not kidding! " Jia retorted .

"Okay, okay, I'll prepare myself for the big fight! " He answered back while swinging on his swivel chair .

"Twenty minutes . "

Dr . Aijohn then turned again to his clients who looked like a couple . The man was the donor applicant for Jim's bone marrow transplant . The woman, who was about his age, must be his girlfriend . He gave them an amused grin as he apologized himself .

"Sorry for the interruption . It's my bestfriend, Anna . " Dr . Aijohn said as he looked at the woman .

The man laughed softly . "It's okay . "

"So, let's continue . I must let you know that you must make a firm decision to be a donor because you will have to undergo pre - transplant evaluation . And that would include a series of blood examinations and diagnostic procedures to see how fit you are to be a donor . "

"These tests will let the transplant team identify potential problems prior to the procedure and the possible complications afterwards . "

"One of the most important tests is the tissue typing . It is a series of blood tests that evaluate the compatibility or closeness of tissue between the organ donor and the recipient . "

Dr . Aijohn's last desperate resort for Jim after that last bottle of Hailey's Pills would be consumed was the bone marrow transplant .

A bone marrow transplant is a procedure to replace damaged or destroyed bone marrow with healthy bone marrow stem cells . And that is

the most succesful conventional approach to treat leukemias .

Bone marrow is the soft, fatty tissue inside the bones . It is responsible for generating blood cells .

"I'll do whatever it takes, Dr . Aijohn! "

Then Dr . Aijohn's phone sounded . He waved a hand at the two to excuse himself .

"I'm here outside . " Jia said .

"Wait a minute! " Koko said, glancing at his clients .

He then ended the call and turned to the two .

"Just please stay here . I cannot say no to this one or else I will be found hanging in a tree . " He chuckled as he held a gaze at the man .

Dr . Aijohn's office had a separate cubicle where he could talk privately to his clients and a separate waiting lounge . Before he could even went out, his secretary opened the door for her .

" Are you still my bestfriend? " She said angrily as soon as she walked into the lounge .

"Are you having your period or you just missed Anthon and you got no one to vent it out with? " Koko teased her despite her anger .

"Aijohn, I'm serious! " She always state his full name whenever she was angry .

"What is it? " Koko listened to her this time .

"What is it? How can you do this to me? How can you afford to hide it from me? How were you able to become his accomplice? "

"How did you find it out? "Aijohn wanted to see how much she knew .

"I saw his ecchymoses and all those petechiaes . I rummaged into his bag and found all those drugs! My goodness, Koko, how can you allow him to bear it all alone? " Jia began to wail loudly as she dropped on to the floor, hugging Koko's legs .

With him, Jia could be her real self . She could tell him all her worries, her anger and all her deepest secrets .

"Anna, please forgive me . He strictly warned me not to tell anyone of you so as not to make you worry . "

"Do you still believe him? Can't you see that he is not a normal human being? His goodness is just too overwhelming and unbelievable . He always put others before himself . He always understand . And now, because of that damn goodness, he wants to suffer alone! "

She wailed harder and louder and pounded her hands on to the floor and kicked the foot of the nearby couch . When all of her energy was spent out on punching and kicking, she dropped limply into the floor .

Koko picked her up and hugged her .

"Anna, how can I ease up your

pain? " Koko said as he rubbed her back .

"How long has he been into this? This makes me guiltier . "

"Guiltier? " Koko wondered what she meant .

"Of those seven years we had been together until the day that Anthon left, despite his great love and respect for me, deep inside I was still crying for Anthon . Deep inside I was still wondering how much happier I could have been if we ended up with each other . "

"And you know what, Jim did confess one time, that during those days when he set me free, he saw all those intimacies I had with Anthon . He watched me crying hardly everytime Anthon left the house . He knew all those yearnings inside of me . But he said nothing and even said he understood . "

With this, she cried bitterly again .

"How could I make it up to him? While he filled me with so much love, this wicked heart was screaming for someone else . "

"And now he's going through that ordeal alone . Koko, why should it be him? " Her painful sobs tore Koko's heart apart .

While Koko did not know anymore how to comfort and to calm her down, the heart of that man inside the cubicle broke down .
