Dangerous Compassions

tea need

I need some tea, stat!  I’m tired of being sick! 

Ming is helping H do some photocopies.  It’s someone’s birthday today.  But I think I will skip it. 

I was blowing my nose on a napkin that smells like pepper and coughing like I’d choke.

“I’ll see you guys over there,” H said as he went out the door.

“I don’t think I’m going to go.  I don’t feel good,” I said.

“Oh!  You’re going to miss out on the cake and all the goodies!  You know what he’s going to say!”

I’m trying to imagine what the birthday boy will say.  I think he’ll say, “She’s not feeling well, huh?  Well, I’ll just get my birthday hug another day.”

Good at listening to the noise until it makes sense.
