Brevity 19: J. Stephen Rhodes:

When I had arrived at the emergency room a few days before, the nurses told me that she was resting in a darkened X-Ray room. I went to the door and asked, “Mina, are you in there?” to no answer. I spoke again, louder, adding, “It’s Steve. Do you remember me?”

She answered, “Steve? Of course I remember you. I loved you before you were born.”
