The pain was increasing gradually. The doctor suggested X-Ray.

"Why did you jump from the roof like an idiot?" He asked his son.

He kept quiet. He had failed the exam. However, he didn't inform it yet to his parents. They had high expectations from him. He felt guilty of disappointing them and breaking their hopes.

"We will get your X-Ray done tomorrow."

The report came out. A few ribs, and the right leg were fractured. "You will recover soon, and we will celebrate once your result comes out."

The X-Ray showed his broken bones, not his bleeding heart.
