#128 Yama Part 3

I woke up early the next day and headed to work. I worked inside a mall and the holiday hours were long and dreadful. I think I had to be at work at 6am. It was 12/16/12 and it was my coworker's birthday. I walked in with balloons and a cake for her. She had…

The hospital was its own scene. Uncles, Aunts, Grandma, cousins, siblings, and parents of Yama, my eldest brother...crowded up the waiting room.
