Loud music drowned out everything as lights of various colors lit up a nightclub crowded with people. I was seated in a booth on a round couch of red leather. In front of me was a glass table with champagne and a huge pile of cocaine. Smoke and mirrors filled the room. A waitress smiled at me, poured champagne in my glass, indulged me to do some cocaine and gave me a napkin upon which she had written her number in black. “Call me,” she mimicked. Blackness before fluorescent lights in the ceiling lid up a hospital hallway. Red crosses on pale blue doors, white walls that needed painting. I was sitting on a little green stool next a small round yellow table. A few Lego pieces lay on top of a children book with Franklin the turtle hiding under a colorful umbrella on the cover. “Your wife is still unconscious,” a female voice said. I looked up. The waitress was now a nurse. “What happened?” I asked.
