"Tired. What happened?", asked Syakirah looking directly into Imranas eyes. "You had an accident. Remember you and your friends were on your way to the seminar? Well it was raining hard and the college Pajero had a crash with a lorry. They took you to this hospital. You've been unconscious for the last 13 hours after the operation". Imran decided to explain to Syakirah later about the driver and her two friends.

Syakirah closed her eyes and slightly nodded. "Honey, I'm sorry. I worried you", she said and a tear slid down her face.

"No, no... Don't be. I'm glad and grateful to Allah that you've survived. Alhamdulillah. I don't know what I'd do...", he could not continued and choked on the words. The thought of losing her was unbearable. Syakirah saw the tears on her husbandas face. She squeezed Imran's hand and said, "You won't, In sha Allah, you won't". She remembered how he lost Kaira.

"No, no... Don't be. I'm glad and grateful to Allah that you've survived. Alhamdulillah. I don't know what I'd do...", he could not continued and choked on the words. The thought of losing her was unbearable.

Syakirah saw the tears on her husband's face. She squeezed Imran's hand and said, "You won't'In sha Allah, you won't". She remembered how he lost Kaira.

Imran nodded and Syakirah smiled painfully. They looked into each other's eyes in silent. The pain she was suffering was a painful torment for Imran to watch.

"I'd better get the nurse and tell them you're awake", Imran said. As he was about to leave, Syakirah said, "Don't go...I'd like to be with you for a while". Imran stayed there for a while holding her hand. She knew Imran needed to feel the assurance that she was alive and he did not lose her like he had lost Kaira. The blacktragedy did not repeat itself. She believed this was Allahas way of giving Imran back his courage. He had lost it after losing Kaira. Now, he had it back.

Later Imran got up to tell the nurse. Syakirah's parents were outside waiting. He told them the good news. After the doctor and the nurse left Syakirah's room, her parents went in. Imran went to make calls to Iskandar and Umar. Later Yasmin visited Syakirah followed by Hanim and Hidayat. They could not stay longer since she was still weak but they were all happy and grateful to Allah that the nightmare was over.

"She's sleeping now", Hanim told everyone when she and Hidayat closed the door to Syakirah's room. Hanim took Yasmin and Hidayat home. Imran stayed with Syakirah's parents for a while before telling them that he had to go somewhere.

The surrounding at the cemetery was peaceful and quiet. The sunlight was breaking through the shady leaves from the trees. The late morning breeze swept through the branches. Imran walked towards his mother's grave, which was next to his father's. He sat near each and recited surah Al-Fatihah. Then he touched the tomb of Saleha's grave and took a deep breath.

"Mom, thank you for the advice you gave me a long time ago" Imran talked to the tomb referring to Saleha'a words of encouragement when he was at a low point after Kaira's death.
