H:
(coughing) Darlin’?

Me: Hi. …How is it?

H:
Hurts.

Me: Can I get you anything?

H:
No.

Me: Here- (grabbing his hand and giving him strength)

H:
No! (coughing and calming) …I
…I didn’t deserve that.

Me: (blithely) Happy
solstice.

H:
Darlin’ – I’m sorry I was churlish before.

Me: (amused) You
have in incredibly mild definition of churlish. I mean, there wasn’t even any
swearing involved.

H:
Even so.

Me: …I don’t know if I’ll
get to speak to you. If I don’t, please wish your family the happiness of the
season and I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas.

H:
(quiet and sincere) I hope you get
everything you could wish for.

Me: We both know that’s not going to happen. Will you be well
enough to ride tomorrow?

H:
Yes, thank you.

Me: Happy winterfest, H. Love you.

H:
Love you darlin’, with all my heart.

Me: Damn – I never wrapped your gifts for you!

H:
Don’t mind that now.

Me: I should go before Kal gets back. Do you need more strength?

H:
No. (leaning forward to kiss me)

Me: Hope to talk to you soon.
