When I woke up, something wasn't quite right.
Antonio was usually bang on-time to work. Always. Usually I was the one who woke up at nine in the morning.
Everyone has a off day at some point, I thought, dismissing the strange feeling in my gut. Better wake him up...680Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYNWEoIYzgS
"Heyy! Antonio! Get up, sleepyhead!"680Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡThorkcMM1X
Something was up.
I shook him gently.
Nothing. I shook him harder.
"Antonio, enough tricks. Get up, or you'll be late to work..."
I began to panic, shaking him ferociously.
"Antonio! Get up this instant! Antonio!"
Oh, god.680Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡesd5LfDlLQ
"Please," I whispered. "Please get up."680Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaRgfeK7Gm4
I knew it was already too late.
He had been telling me about this for some time now; about how his doctors had advised him to avoid strenuous physical activity, not to overload his weakening heart - but they had told him that there was still very little chance of a heart attack.
He wasn't breathing.
He was cold.
This had happened a long time ago.
"PLEASE!" I screamed through tears, already knowing it was far too late now. "JUST GET UP!"
He didn't get up.
"No." I whispered. "No. No. No."ns22.214.171.124da2
