H:
(coughing and breathless) Darlin’… not your… hour.

Me: No… Are you alright?

H:
…No.

Me: What happened?

H:
…Hemorrhage. Left side.

Me: Was there a lot of blood?

H:
Enough.

Me: Was this last night?

H:
…Monday.

Me: I can give you strength to help heal it…?

H:
…If you would, please… … I – I felt…

Me: Something in your chest shift? Me too. Although mine was
across the top of the lungs. That was odd.

H:
Thank you darlin’. (coughing)

Me: You’re welcome. I’m sorry I was absent and didn’t do it earlier. I was in a
stupidly misanthropic mood yesterday. Which is an awful excuse and not much of
an explanation either.

H: (wry) No gentleman should wish his companion to have an unwilling
heart. (coughing)

Me: Now you sound like you again. …Will your relatives come to
steal you away?

H:
Have you told them?

Me: No – how could I have?

H:
Then no.

Me: It might be good if S visits.

H:
…Yes.

Me: Ergh – I think I have a cold coming. Nothing like Kal’s
affliction – and nothing like yours, more’s the pity.

H:
(tiredly) Girl.

Me: … I should finally be getting my greencard – my emancipation
papers – in about a month they say. And today we filled out paperwork for a
loan, so I can travel back to see my father.

H:
…Why do you stand against it?

Me: I don’t. But I do have some resistance to the idea.

H:
(coughing) Why?

Me: It’s spending money we don’t have; and I’m already in debt.
But far more than that… I’ll have to see how ill my dad is – truly see it. And
on some level I’d rather not. I had to watch my mother die every day by inches… I don’t know if I can go through that kinda shit again.

H:
(half asleep) …Told you… Make your
peace.

Me: You did. Good advice too… I should leave you to sleep.

H:
…Will you visit?

Me: Tomorrow?

H:
Yes.

Me: Yes. Love you H.
