Sleepwalking my way through life: Barman! A pint of O- for the gentlemen here!



Barman! A pint of O- for the gentlemen here!

There was the slightest of nips – a small sting that travelled under the skin – and it was in. The clear tube flicked to red and travelled over the bed out of my sight. I looked up to see a benevolent face above me; teeth shining white and laughter wrinkles shining black, eyes like a crystalline sea. It said something, the lush red lips parted in a natural smile, and I nodded as it wandered away, ready to see over another soul.

I flexed my hand gently. My muscles tensed and relaxed rhythmically, following a slower tempo to my heart. I looked around the room – slowly, the light headedness was kicking in – and looked at the beds around me. At least a dozen of them were arranged around the hall, each holding a figure similar to mine in their purple softness. Each figure was doing the same as I; flexing and relaxing their hands.

I let my head rest and I idly gazed at the soft lights hanging from the ceiling. Three for the price of one, I thought whimsically to myself. I am saving three people. I am giving them a fighting chance. Within thirty five days, up to three people may be alive because of me.

Minutes passed as I chuckled to myself at the possibilities. The benevolent face returned and smiled that smile that reminded me of outside. Another sting – the slightest of nips – and I was fine. She spoke soft words and gave me some juice.

Three human beings.

Give blood today.

It would take a hell of a lot of juice to get me to do that :(

Well done that man
