You sat in the uncomfortable, blue chair and chewed
your lip nervously. The test results would tell you whether your surprise would
be good or bad. The nurse had led you into the room thirty minutes before and
had said the doctor wouldn’t be long. No surprise there that the doctor hadn’t
shown yet but you wanted the results before you left town. You were too
involved in fidgeting with your phone to notice when the door opened.
“So, (Y/n), I
have some really good news and a little upsetting news but nothing major.” You
frowned at hearing those words.
Doctor Baker, give it to me straight. I just need to know if we need to do
anymore treatments before I head out of town, or can they wait?”
treatments can wait but you can’t leave town.”
you cut her off. “But I thought you said I would be good to go.”
sweetie, calm down. I was saying you can’t leave town until tomorrow. I just
have one more thing for you to do. We need to go back down the hall to one of
the exam rooms. That’s the upsetting news.”
You gave her a
look of exasperation. You moved from the chair and fixed your loose top to flow
the right way over the jeans that were trying to slink down your hips. The
treatments had caused you to lose weight drastically.
Sweetie, it won’t take long at all.” Your doctor moved to open the door for
you. You stepped into the hall and immediately shrunk back into the room after
a loud roar of voices surrounded you.
“You know, 90% of the country believes in ghosts? Less than a third believes in evolution? 35% can correctly identify Homer Simpson and the fictional town which he resides. And less than 1% knows the name Thurgood Marshall. But when you put 12 Americans together in a jury and ask for justice? Something just out of brilliance happens. Often as not, they get it right.”
Just realized I hadn’t shared it here - one of our local comic shops had several artists visiting for Free Comic Book Day. An artist named Ron Leary Jr had some gorgeous prints, but was also doing sketches for a good deal less than his normal commission rate. So… Anders. He wasn’t familiar, so I also got to talk to him a bit about the character. He also seems anti-circle, so, excellent :-)
