A nurse came and told him that it was time to take her for x-ray before the operation. Reluctantly Imran left the room.

Umar came to ask him to go to the nurse's station to fill in the paperwork. Later they saw the orderlies wheeled Syakirah into the operation room. Imran went to them and asked them to stop for a second. He approached her and whispered, "Syira, I'll be here when you wake up. Remember the promise...I love you". "Don't leave me yet", he added. He stood there watching until the doors of the operation room were closed.

Umar came to ask him to go to the nurse's station to fill in the paperwork. Later they saw the orderlies wheeled Syakirah into the operation room. Imran went to them and asked them to stop for a second. He approached her and whispered, "Syira, I'll be here when you wake up. Remember the promise...I love you". "Don't leave me yet", he added. He stood there watching until the doors of the operation room were closed.

"Imran, let's go and sit for a while", Umar motioned Imran to the couch near the nurse's station. He followed Umar but then stopped.

"Umar, I can't just sit..." "There's nothing we can do right now Imran. Justpray to Allah (SWT)  she will pull through this", Umar tried to calm his friend.

"She has to Umar...she has...I...I can't lose her....not again".

"I know, we'll all pray for her". Umar had not seenhis friend like that before. Imran usually was able to pull himself together in a panicked situation. Bt somehow he failed that day.

Imran sat on the couch and bent his head. He covered his face with his hands. Just then Umar spotted Iskandar and Marina getting off the elevator. He left Imran and went to the couple. He explained what was going on. Iskandar and Marina sat on both sides of Imran. "Imran, how're you holding up?, Iskandar asked. Marina looked on sadly.

"Not good...".

"I'm sorry", Marina said with tears. "Imran, the operation will take some times. Why don't you go get some air. Iskandar and I will be here while you'regone". Iskandar agreed with his wife. Imran got up and weakly walked to the elevator with Umar. They stopped at the mosque nearby the hospital. Due to the chaotic event, he felt guilty for delaying his Asar prayer. He went to pray and made du'a asking Allah (SWT)   to save Syakirah. They stayed until Maghrib prayer.

Two hours later they came back to the hospital but the operation was still not finished. He went to sit with Iskandar and Marina. Iskandar told him that Syakirah's parents were on their way. He also called Yasmin and Hidayat. They planned to take a flight on that night. Hanim would be there soon too. She was having a seminar in Penang when Iskandar called her office.Imran just listened to his brother. Then as if remembering something, he asked, "You guys heard anything about her two friends and the driver?".

Iskandar answered, "Yeah, while you were gone I went to ask the nurse. She said the two teachers just had minor injuries. They are in the out patient room. The driver is still in the operation room as well". Two hours later the light above the operation room went off. Imran's heart stopped. He stood and walked towards the room. Iskandar, Marina, and Umar followed him. The doctor came out.

"How is she?"
