Draw the blood

Draw the blood

The man with the white coat kept still for a moment and took the syringe. I couldn’t move my arms held with ropes to a chair. There were three or four more people in the hospital room. I couldn’t either close my eyes or even open my mouth. I tried to keep on thinking about Lorrain and her long hair, on her eyes and her smile. They introduced the syringe slowly and I felt my blood escaping and laughing of me. Doctors had their faces covered with masks. Even when I was a child, I never liked doctors. I used to cry every time I had to go out. ‘Am I ill, mom? If I am not sick, why must I go to the doctor?’ I never found the answer, not in the past, not for now, sure I won’t find it in the future. I observed the room: there was a clock tinkling and making fun of me. ‘Where is my mom, doctor?’

‘She is dead, John.’

I remember her white face in the coffin. Yesterday I was playing with her, now she is dead.

‘We will need more blood, John. Will you be brave? Do it for your mom.’

I am unable to close my eyes, like if there was an invisible artifact keeping them opened. Where are you, Lorraine? Where are your sight and your kisses? Doctors hit me. Again? My father was a good man but he couldn’t put up with the situation. One whiskey more, one day less to stay again with your wife, good man.

‘Blood is blocked.’ Doctors are nervous, now my blood is laughing of them. ‘We will get what we want, John. It will be easy if you relax. We will take the blood with your help or without it.’

Am I dreaming? If you can concentrate enough to the dream, you can even control it, change the space and time… you can be the god and you can play with the pawns as you can determinate. They introduce a new syringe in the other arm. It’s smooth and warm, there’s a clear sky near the clock.

‘Get him sleep! Now!’

I feel the poison in my veins, I feel past and future in one forgotten verb, I feel her face falling into the deepest dream of nothing and everything.

‘Stop the fight, John. Just sleep.’

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
