Death's Outreach! part2

epi 20: Vicky's death
A phone call at night…Very cold, I want to come home….
Ah On rushes to find Vicky on a beach, with waves lapping over her. He pulls her onto the shore. His chest compressions revived her. Hope springs in his heart.

You'll be fine, you'll be fine. I'm taking you to the hospital.

But she is dying probably from the combo intake of pills and liquor, rather than from drowning by the look of the foam in her mouth. She stops Ah On from taking her to the hospital.

Gor, no need.
What do you want to say? asks Ah On, gently.
“I’m sorry!” Vicky asks for her brother's forgiveness, and dies.

Ah On is shell-shocked. Can it be that death has taken yet another of his loved ones? After all , he did revive her? Didn't he? How could she die? How can lightning strike twice within such a short time? How? Inconceivable! No! This can’t be happening. Hugging her tightly in his arms, he begs, he pleads:

“Get up, Sum! Get up!

He is terrified, so very terrified. He thought he was already drained dry of emotions by the loss of his daughter but this devastation plucks his heart right out of him.

"Sum!" he wails.

He goes into shock. In a normal voice, he says gently to his younger sis as if soothing her:

Guai ya, Ah gor's not angry with you. Mom isn't either.

There he holds her, rocking her gently in his arms, and stroking her hair tenderly. How can he ever forgive himself? How?

Ah gor.....such connotation comes with a responsibility!
