seated at the wooden table, eating breakfast. He sat and observed his meal. His father, who was carrying a newspaper, gently set it down as he watched Gideon move his spoon while looking at him with severe eyes. The person he most resembled was his father, although they had a similar appearance, his father constantly wore a serious expression on his face. His mother, who had quite distinct face features than his father, is responsible for his gentle appearance.
The father of Gideon breathed out, ”I hope you learned your lesson, Gideon. I still find it hard to believe you ended up doing something so out of character for you. ”
While looking at his father in confusion, Gideon slowly tilted his head. ”Ah…? ”
”You two already discussed it last night, and I think Gideon is already atoning about it, so lets just forget about it, ” his mother said, gently caressing her husbands shoulder.
”I did not raise any of my sons to be violent gangsters. How did both of them end up on the same path? ” his father asked, shaking his head. ”All I want is not to lose another son- ”
”What happened to Big Brother Gian will not happen to me, Dad, ” Gideon said, shrugging. ”Gangster? Why would I be a gangster? I learned my lesson when we lost him. ”
The three ate in silence for a while, keeping the place quiet. Up until Gideons mother gave him a kind handshake and a smile.
”Anyway, Gideon, best of luck with your exam today. ”
Upon hearing the word. He raised his head and looked at his mother, puzzled. ”Our exam is next week. ”
His mother simply shook her head and furrowed her brows. ”Today, Gideon, you told me yesterday, and you told me to remind you. ”
”Did I? ” he wondered, his voice shaking. ”What is the date today? ”
He checked the date on his phone by removing it from his loose pocket. The light from his smartphone flashed, and the metal spoon he was holding struck the white porcelain plate with a high-pitched sound.
”Haven I told you so many times before, don use your phone while eating? ” his father insisted.
Gideon, on the other hand, was absorbed in his phone and missed his fathers criticism. His eyes expanded and his jaw dropped.
With bewilderment written all over his face, he got to his feet and hurried upstairs to his room. His wild eyes darted across the untidy room in front of him as he leaned against the closed door and slammed it shut.
”Gideon, are you okay? ” his mother asked from outside.
”Of course, Im fine, I just forgot something, ” he lied.
”Are you sure? ”
”Yes, Mom. Ill be leaving for school soon. I just need to do something, ” he replied, panicking inside his room.
”All right, if you say so. ”
As his mother walked away, Gideon exhaled slowly to calm himself and pulled his phone from his pocket. When he opened his phone again and realized what he was seeing was real, he groaned.
”I slept for nine days? But mom and dad said I was awake… and did horrible things. ” He looked around his cluttered room, his belongings strewn about. His shoulders shook. ”What happened during those nine days? ”
