Chapter 1: Blind Patience Act 1
Chara stood over the bed. The child lay on it, sleeping, but not breathing. Chara breathing intesified.
‘I cannot risk you recovering…’ Chara said, getting angrier by the second. They carefully stood beside the bed, and slowly brought one hand closer to the child’s neck.
The hand came closer to the neck. And closer.
This is it, Chara thought, this is it…..if I pull this off….if I do this….then-
But before they could finish their thought, one of the child’s hands suddenly shot up and caught Chara by the lower arm, taking them by surprise. The child sat up, and screamed, ‘MAMA!!’
Chara jumped back with a yelp. The child nearly fell over from the bed, shivering. They pulled back on to the bed, and stared ahead. Chara thought they were staring at them, but realized they were actually staring at the wall behind them. He looked closer.
The child, indeed, was looking at the wall behind them.
Chara slowly stood up, observing the human. The child put a hand on their bed sheets, and then the other. A look of confusion came over their face. She looked around, saying, ‘Mama?’
Not sure what to do, our prince quickly made up their mind, and said, ‘Your mother isn’t here.’
The child looked at Chara’s direction, but not at Chara themself. They said, ‘What? But…where am I?’
Chara was quickly running out of ideas and time, and said, ‘That’s not important.’
The child again asked, ‘Where am I?’
‘I said…that’s not important. What is important… why are you looking at the wall? I’m here!’ Chara waved their hands while angrily saying this. Not only had their plan failed due to the human in front of them waking up, but they weren’t even looking at them. And it seemed like they were doing it on purpose.
The child blinked, and looked around in their general direction. ‘Where?’
‘I can’t see you.’
Chara stopped. What?
‘What did you just say?’
‘I….can’t….see you.’ The panic in their voice grew, ‘I….I can’t see!’ They started fidgeting, but then slumped back on their pillow. Chara was flabbergasted. They were quick to collect their wits, though.
So I have a blind human here…that was unexpected….but they’re not dead. They would matter more like that.
Chara slowly made their way to the child, putting their hands up (Which was a useless thing to do, considering the scared kid was blind), saying soothingly, ‘Now, calm down, ok? Calm down…’
The child looked in their direction again, and said, in a panicked tone, ‘But…but…I can’t see….how do I know where you are?’
Chara moved closer. Their eyes were on the kid’s throat. If I can just…do it quickly….
‘Don’t worry….I’ll take good care of you….’
