"Dennis? Dennis! DENNIS!"
She started screaming my name, though I was only a few steps behind her, standing quietly on my way to the kitchen. I didn't answer. Her voice was getting higher and higher and then she started coughing. She spat and cursed and called my name. I wasn't even breathing so that she wouldn't notice my presence. She called my name one more time without knowing it would be the last time. The last thing I heard from her was a curse. I started breathing normally again.
