"Since when did this happen?" Dr. Richardson asked me as he observes me head to toe.
"Few months ago."
"Aside from this, what else do you experience?"
"Um, I usually palpitate. Even when I'm just sitting on the couch, relaxing and stuff and then I sometimes have difficulty in breathing."
"Hmm.. inhale, exhale." He said, as he puts the stethoscope on my back and moves it from one place to another.
"Gabriel, I think you should see a cardiologist."
"Is there someone available right now?"
"Let me see.." He looked at his watch and a sheet of paper inside his desk. "Ah! Dr. Simons is available today, he doesn't seem to have an appointment so maybe I can borrow him some of his time for you. So, mind coming with me?"
"Certainly." I assured him.
He led me to Dr. Simons' clinic. Dr. Simons is a young looking man, someone who doesn't look older than 40 but I have heard of him a dozen times already a few years ago when my grandmother was diagnosed with some heart disease.
"Arnold, that lad over there, I think he has a problem. Would you give that child a little of your time?" Dr. Richardson said in a whisper, preventing me to hear it. But unfortunately, I was able to hear them talk.
"It's fine. I got nothing to do. Bring him here."
"Thank you Arnold! Come here lad!"
I went towards the table and Dr. Simons started checking on me. It lasted for a few minutes.
"You'll have to take a few tests. Would you like do take them now?"
"I would love to."
I took a few tests, they're mostly I think related to my heart. If you'll ask me what they are, I can't tell. I'm not familiar with them. As soon as Dr. Simons had finished studying and comparing the results, I couldn't cope with the emotions I had.
