I was down with a serious bouts of achoo the other night and decided against the norm of bedtime stories with Gooly.
Albeit visibly disappointed, he understood the implication of being sick.
He sneaked out a little while later but I was too tired to ask why.
Only the next morning that I was told that he had actually gone upstairs, knocked on my mom's door and requested for a cup of water - a very tedious task, I must say. (He is afraid of the dark and the kitchen is pitch black.)
Based on my bad record, my mom asked if I had scolded him (again) making him afraid to ask me for a cup of water in the middle of the night. Yeah, I do scold him all the time, but I surely didn't the night before because I was too drugged, tired, sneezy, whatever. So I am pretty sure I didn't say, "Water? Drink what water? Go to sleep" or anything equally evil which I am capable of.
..Gah? Did I just reveal the evil side of me?
I asked Gooly about the water incident, wondering why he had gone to Nainai.
"You were sick. I know you need more rest."
Awwww... Is that boy the most considerate or what? *melt into a puddle of mucus and phlegm*
Also, I must say that every time he takes a cup of water for himself (during broad daylight), he fetches another for me, without me asking for it.
