Kevin went over to the hospital to see Natasha. And reaching the room where she was admitted in, he stood by the window to gaze at her. He was elated to find her on her feet again.
Natasha, struggling to walk, was pacing the room. Stopped when she heard the door open, and quickly turned and saw standing there at the entrance, Kevin. She recoiled in shock, clearly not expecting to see him, for she had been waiting for her dad to come pick her.
Kevin stood by the door, unwilling to move a step further into the room. Their eyes locked on and for a long second, they stared awkwardly at each other. He didn’t know what to say to her.
“Hi.” the word was already out before he could stop it.
“Hi.” she answered almost immediately, smiles crossed her lips.
“It’s a relief to see that you are finally back on your feet again.” he took a few paces towards her. “How are you?”
“Like you, only better.”
