I'm so happy now
I started working at an old folks home about a month ago. It was pretty much the only job I could get fresh out of college so I was willing to put up with almost anything if it meant keeping food on the table. That doesn’t mean I liked it though. My boss was an asshole. She was in her late 50’s and insisted on double checking everything I did and was closer to me than my shadow for a solid three weeks, probably waiting for me to mess up.
My days were long and dark. I would show up at 5am to get a nice deep breath of rotting food and dead skin and wouldn’t leave until 10 when everyone was fast asleep, while my boss would lock herself in her office for the night. The place was understaffed, and even though the old people weren’t much trouble, they managed to be creepy as hell.
During my introductory week I was mostly cleaning and unpacking activities for the folks, board games, knitting needles and some baby dolls. The dolls were scratched up and their eyes were stuck in place by sticky black stuff that wouldn’t come off. The dolls were a favourite though and were asked for every day. The old folks seemed to believe they were alive and would laugh with joy at the sight of them, so my manager would hand them out as a reward. Each person would care “for their baby” for the rest of the day until I had to wrestle the dolls back out of their hands and watch them cry while I locked them back into my manager’s office. Of course my manager would be ‘supervising’ but would refuse to touch them.
Every few days or so, a patient would cause a scene, asking for one thing or another, and as it had been raining for the last few days everyone was getting restless. I showed up at five that morning and I waited by the main office door. There were five different locks in all sorts of shapes and only my boss had the keys. As each bolt fell back into place it let out a thick thump which echoed out into the hallway. Soon enough, the residents were milling about, only half awake but already tugging at my sleeve, asking for their dolls.
My boss stepped out in a stiff navy blue dress and motioned to me to get inside. “Quickly, come on, the weather’s been a mess, just give them whatever they want today,. I want some quiet.” I nodded; “of course”. Old people get sick easily, so normally I would be wearing gloves to keep things sterile. Today I wasn’t. Thank god I wasn’t. My manager looked out of sorts. “Look”, I said, “I’ve done this before, so you should just lie down today and I’ll come back when I get things sorted”. She was reluctant but her face was already turning a pale green. “Fine” she groaned and made a beeline to the bathroom.
I made my rounds, and as usual, and handed them all a doll each. This time as they clutched to them with their wrinkled claws I felt disgusted. I had finally come to my senses. These rotting fossils didn’t deserve to touch the beautiful dolls. I had the last one in my arms. Without the gloves on, I could feel his smooth warm skin.
The baby looked at me and laughed. I laughed. his rosy cheeks and blond curls were so funny! I laughed and laughed but I could barely breathe. I ran. No one would take him.
It has been two weeks since I saved my beautiful boy from that place. He will always be beautiful but his black tears stick to his face. I can’t wipe them away. I can’t hear myself think. I didn’t think I’d be a father at such a young age but I don’t dare leave him for a second. I’m running out of food for him but I can’t leave the house with him.
It has been four weeks. He is my everything. He is taking everything. The bone of my leg is showing now and my knife has gotten dull. But my beautiful boy is so big now, so healthy. All this protein will make him strong.
