Death A Respector Of None

It was on Thursday afternoon,I had just come from town to up cantry four days ago and i had left my brother and my father in town.At that time the phone was rang by a person who was a stranger to my mother.The stranger told my mother to come immediately because my father was very sick.My mother and i were left perplexed and mesmerised.My mother and i hurriedly went to town when we reached he was laying in the hospital breathing in and out consciousness almost half dead.The doctor explained that he had been robbed by unknown people last night who cut him on the forehead that made him lose a lot of blood.By good luck his colleagues were looking for him to give the keys to the organization.When they fund him,he was out of mind that he could not even talk.My father was taken very fast in Agakan hospital in kisumu and kept in an ICU.After a week he was feeling better and i was relieved from the pain i was because the bill had been paid by the organization.
