Showing Up After

“You have a lot of nerve,” I said. “Showing up now. After.”

“I don’t know what you’re talking about,” she said in her snide tone. “I got here as soon as I heard.”

“As soon as you heard,” I said. “Right. What about before?”

“I don’t know what you’re talking about,” she said again.

“Sure you don’t.” I said.  “She’s  been sick for what, five years? Six?”

She didn’t say anything.

“Let me ask you,” I said. “How many times did you come up here then?  How many visits?”

“You know how it was,” she said.

“Still is,” I said.
