"Sometimes it is better to lose and do the right thing than to win and do the wrong thing - Tony Blair"
Ajay escorted the sheikh to the main lobby to where he wanted the entire staff to collect. I on the other hand went to collect Aamir and other children who were victims to those monsters. It was painful just thinking about it. It was been more painful that these children are scarred for life with his terrible truth.
I didn't not know what was to happen, but something good after a long time. As we were walking down the hallway towards the lobby one of his highness's guards stopped me and told me only I could proceed forward leaving he kids to go back to the general ward in regards with protection. I asked what was the protection for. To which he threw a bomb on me....The Press.
I was asked to speak about what happened and I wasn't ready for it. I mean come on who would be. I thought has this man he king that is lost his mind. He is known to be the calm, composed man who when thrown such situation would plan and investigate it thoroughly. He knows that after this he will be bombarded with god alone knows what all and what not. I mean hello he just met me and he is trusting my judgement that too I'm just 21 years old. As I entered I saw the staff all confused and worried even Dr. Mahroof and a couple of press reporters from selected channels. Also on my left was the Sheikh his aunt and his team. Seeing all of them it dawned on me. That everything depended on what I say now. I looked at mahroof and he stared at me intently, I knew that threatening look all too well.
I was given a microphone to speak as to what happened. This moment decided whether I should keep my mouth shut take the scholarship and girl"the expenses till I graduate and become a certified surgeon with good job posting, or tell the truth and lose it all. I know what I was about to do was wrong for certain people and right for others, but I wanted this so bad. Everything depended on me. Which made m slightly dizzy. I looked at he sheikh who nodded at me to go ahead and looked toward Dr. Mahroof and smiled. I took a deep breath and began....
"Assalamualaikum everyone. I will just straight away jump to the topic. Dr. Lestrange who is an experienced and respected surgeon who I have been working under as an assisting surgeon in training have been thrown allegations of sexual abuse on the patients of this hospital, all I want to say is that these allegations are.." I looked at mahroof and shook my head, he seemed nervous. "Absolutely the truth. He has been involved in this disgusting deed of assaulting children of 8 to 12 years old. This has been going on since the last six months and we that's me and my colleague Ajay Kishore found out last month." My voice wavered and tears started creeping into my eyes. I saw Ajay his eyes were too in tears and encouraged me to move on. I closed my eyes took a deep breath thinking of those children and what they and heir parents will go through and what my parents taught me. I didn't care anymore about what was my future or the offer I'd get if I kept my mouth shut. I continued "the following people involved in this dirty, shameless and inhumane act are 2 from the surveillance department, Dr.Lestrange and finally the most amazing and talented doctor...Dr.mahroof the chief of this hospital. He was the main culprit behind the rape and " mysterious death" of a 10year old ailing girl. He bloody raped and murdered a child 2 weeks back. Although the head of surveillance were purchased by this man. We that's me and Ajay installed cameras secretly when the shift was over. The whole hospital is rigged Dr. Mahroof, unfortunately you couldn't buy us. We both don't care anymore if we get what we tirelessly worked hard for. I am not afraid of your threatenings hat you will kill me my family will now know for what reason I died. I no longer am afraid or care what happens. How could you do this?! How did you have the heart to even see them as sex objects. You ruined them. And now the nation will destroy you. I'm sorry I can't go further." I handed he mic over to a teary eyed reporter and turned to leave, the room is silenced by a loud thunderous clap. I turn to see mahroof on the floor clutching his cheek and a furious king standing over him. My mouth dropped open, sheikh Mohammed the emir of Dubai, the prime minister of u.a.e. the calm and composed king just slapped mahroof in front of the press. Maybe this was personal, I didn't get it. Now the entire world will see what happened. I couldn't take it anymore and ran towards the general ward. I opened the doors and fell to the ground crying whilst the children just looked at me silently waiting for an answer. "We won kids...the nightmare is finally over."
