He came to see me in the hospital. I think he thought I was asleep, I mean, it was 2 in the morning. The painkillers hadn’t quite kicked in yet, although the pain was really far away. I wouldn’t have even known he was there, except that his coat made a funny sound on the chair seat.
When I opened my eyes, he looked embarrassed. I managed to croak out a hello and asked him what he was doing here.
“Creature of the night, remember? It’s night, I’m a creature,” he pulled out a cigarette and looked at it. He mumbled the rest of the sentence, “’sides, can’t sleep.”
