His Hero.16 May, 2015 05:13 PM
When my wife died in an accident almost an year ago the only reason for me to live was my 3 year old son.He was the second best thing that ever happened to me after my wife.He used to consider me his hero as I was a rescue pilot he always insisted that I take him on my missions.
One day I got a call at work that a school bus had dropped in the river due to heavy rain and slippery roads.I fired up my helicopter and flew there as fast as I could.
There was zero visibility due to heavy rain so it took us a while.Until we pulled the victims out....the driver and the two kids they were half gone.After rescuing the victims I flew back to the hospital as fast as I could when suddenly my fellow rescue pilot patted on my shoulder:Give me the handle I think you should go check the patients in the back.I replied:Why? You can do it.His reply was:Just go mate!.His vocal intensity made me realize that something was wrong.So I went back and after seeing what was lying back there I fell to my knees and almost fainted.I just saw my son lying coughing out blood and water I heard him whispering:Daddy..I want my Daddy.Tears rolled down my cheek as I held his hand he whispered:Daddy don't worry you'll save me you're my hero and don't cry even if I go mommy will be in heaven to take care of me.I couldn't even speak or breath it was like something held my throat.As I held his hand he slowly faded away.
Next day at his funeral there was a thunderstorm after the funeral I walked around the city drunk just sobbing and the flashbacks of my past time spent with my wife and son haunted me the first when I saw my wife and the for the first I held my baby in my hands.I had already gave up on life.Losing my wife and son in an year was too much for me.The pain was unbearable I could not endure it as it was too much for me.The only two reasons for me to live had left me.I couldn't stand it.I went for the river which killed my son then I just stood on the edge of the river and whispered:I'm coming Aaron and Jane don't you worry..Then I went away.
