Waiting Room

Waiting Room

by Eileen

Sophia made her stay in the waiting room alone with the woman whose husband stepped out in front of the lorry. She holds her hand because she feels as though that's what she ought to be doing but cannot bring herself to meet her eyes when she asks what happened to her brother.

A man in a white coat comes out, tells them that the woman's husband has passed and suddenly: Eileen is afraid.

The surgeon puts Nick's jaw back together with metal plates and fine screws. Much later, she'll wish he'd been hit by a lorry and died too.
