Luke finally told Melinda that his father was on a business trip. He and his father had been video chatting in the beginning, but since Luke had a bad temper, they had stopped talking altogether. Melinda had been keeping him company and Luke had forgotten about his father.
Melinda was glad about meeting Luke. Otherwise, she would have been lonely in the hospital.
Kent was busy with work and couldn't stay with Melinda all the time.
"Luke, your father must be having a lot of problems to deal with. He perhaps misses you and wants to talk with you. He will be upset if you ignore him," Melinda said.
"Really?" he asked, cocking his head to one side.
"Yeah. I think you should call your father and tell him that you miss him. He'll be happy to hear from you."
Melinda smiled. She could understand what Luke's father must have been going through, and she somehow wanted to reunite them.
Luke listened to Melinda and finally called his father. Melinda watched the two of them interact happily with a small smile on her face. Luke had missed his father terribly and his anger disappeared in an instant. He was telling his father about what he had been up to and even mentioned about Melinda.
"Melinda, Dad said that he'd be coming to see me today. He has even brought a toy for me," Luke said, clapping his hands excitedly.
Melinda wished she were a child too. Children led simple lives. They could forgive and forget easily. Life got complicated when you grew up and you had no choice but to survive through the storm.
Luke's father arrived at the hospital in the evening. Although he looked tired, the resemblance between him and Luke was uncanny.
He had brought a fruit basket for Melinda as Luke had been talking nonstop about her.
"Dad, Melinda is a writer too. She is brilliant!"
Luke loved his new toy and enjoyed playing with it. He was explaining about Melinda's short stories to his father, which surprised Melinda a little. She didn't know that he had been paying attention to her all this time.
Jack Zhou was shocked by his son's words. He turned his head to look at Melinda who was smiling politely.
"Miss Mo, what kind of stories do you write?"
Jack Zhou asked.
"I write novels. It's very satisfying to write about people and create a world with words."
