The human memory is notoriously faulty.
Janine no longer remembered if she saw the light or if it was just the surgeons blinding head lamp as he crawled into her mother’s cavernous heart in attempt to save her.
Janine no longer remembered if she merely thought the words or if they actually slipped between her gritted teeth.
“Don’t bother, there’s nothing there to save.”
With all his gracious intent, the doctor took her hands.
“I did all I could but it just couldn’t be done.”
Janine couldn’t slam the gate fast enough, “You could’ve done less.”
No prompt to speak of.
