Although Dalia's eyes remained shut, she still had life in her. Her mother laid her on the bed and both parents hoped for the worst. They both knew no sleep neither the taste of food as Dalia remained in that condition for the next 18 hours. They both kept starring at her as though waiting for her to breath her last.
At few minutes before 7:00pm, just before the evening prayers, Dalia's lips twitched and her eyelids fluttered. "Dalia, Dalia, please open your eyes, don't do this to us" said Yerima as he moved to grab her close to his chest. Slowly, she opened her eyes and saw her father's face looking down into hers. She clung tightly to him while her mother joined in the embrace.
They thought they would loose her. Their joy knew no bounds.
