The agonizing pain grew more and more, making me howl in the darkness of the hospital wing. I shrieked, tossed and turned. The pain swept through my head as if trying to wipe out every sign of life in me. It was too much to handle for my young mind. I closed my eyes and buried my head under the pillow. I felt a soft hand on my back. It stroked my head with all its warmth. For a second it felt that all my pain had been banished forever and a fresh beam of sunshine had cleansed my life. My world seemed to be regaining its brilliant colours. I lifted my head listlessly and tried to figure out the face that hid behind the curtain of tears clinging to my eyelashes. “Sorry mommy, my screams woke you up again.” I murmured. She hushed me and continued stroking my hair. It seemed that she wanted to say something but her strength didn’t allow her. I confessed that I couldn’t control myself from screaming and was really sorry to wake her up in the dead of the night but she just hugged me. Tears started streaming down her cheeks as she looked at my pale face. She hurriedly ran out of the room bursting into sobs. I sat on my bed rock hard staring at the empty doorway hoping that she would return… It had almost been a week since I had been here. I kept telling mommy to take me home because I didn’t want to miss school. Miss Anna would be really furious at me for not attending her arts class as I was her favorite student. But mommy always replied that I had not shown any signs of recovery, as soon as I did that she would take me back home. Every time she said this, I was just left curious to know what I had to recover from. I had no idea why I was here; away from my friends and school. I was perfectly fine the whole day except for a few nights when there used to be a lot of pain in my head which seemed to be sucking out every drop of energy from my body leaving me feeble. This would make mommy cry a lot which made me feel awful. One morning when I woke up to the crowing of the rooster, I overheard mommy and the old doctor talking about me… “It’s a gamble. If it doesn’t work properly, the radiations will kill him!” said the doctor worriedly, “But I can’t even let him die without trying.” whispered mommy. There was an awkward silence... I saw mommy entering the doorway depressed. It seemed as if she was now going to let me know what I had been going through all this time. With all the courage she could muster she croaked in the slightest whisper, “You have brain cancer.” “What’s that mommy?” I inquired I didn’t know what I had said that made her hug the life out of me! She kept telling me how much she loved me and how all her efforts could go in vain but I still had no clue about what was going to happen. After a lot of pleading she told me that I was going to go through an operation the next day! The evening that followed remained quiet uncomfortable as I was really scared about the operation. Mommy tried really hard to cheer me up but all her efforts were futile. She made me sleep early that night, but I couldn’t sleep. I was too petrified. A dreadful feeling crept up my spine as the dawn drew closer. My numb mind still tried to accept the fact that I had an operation tomorrow. Different thoughts took over my mind as I floated back in my memories; how I used to love getting dressed up in bright colours every day! How I used to love getting cotton candy on my way back from school, how I made mommy get a rainbow painted on my wall… I smiled as I thought how cheery and bubbly I was… Tears started streaming down my cheeks as I was brought back to reality… I couldn’t believe that for almost a month I had been imprisoned in this room where everything seemed to be shrouded in grey! My life seemed to have no colours left in it… I felt as if I was living in a world where shadows gave way to more shadows, all melting into each other, giving a shade of unearthly grey… Unusual voices filled my ears as I woke up the next morning. The time I had been dreading for, had arrived. The funny looking nurse told me to hop into the wheelchair. Paralyzed with fear, I pried open mommy’s grip and did as she said. I could see mommy holding all her tears behind those fretful eyes. The nurse took me to the other room through the dark, silent corridor. A shiver ran through my spine as I reached the room. The doctor put a cloth on my face, I felt so light, the sweet smell… When I woke up I saw mommy smiling at me. This time her smile had a hidden triumph somewhere. It seemed as if a great burden had been lifted from her sagged shoulders. She gave me a hug which would always work as a soothing balm for all my wounds and sores… wait a minute… there was no pain anymore! I was feeling perfectly fine! Excitement and glee surrounded me. She kissed on my forehead gently and said in contentment, “Let’s go home dear!” She carried me in her arms close to herself out of the hospital. As soon as I stepped out I felt as if a dark, gloomy night had been exchanged with a bright, sunny day. A day which was fresh just like a valley is after a heavy storm and rain. I felt as if my life had regained all its magnificent colours! The beautiful red roses, the restless orange flame, the bright yellow sun, the lush green grass, the never ending blue sky, the stunning indigo and violet dancing peacock seemed to be mine! All this beauty seemed to be my treasured possessions. Yes all these colours gave a rise to a rainbow; my rainbow, where I could live forever with colours that would never fade away!
