Just when he was walking through the room towards the door he saw Adam’s phone laying on the floor next to the bed. He knelt down and picked it up, turning it over in his hand. He tell himself later that he was just being curious when he swiped the screen on the phone but if he was honest with himself I wanted to know more about the man.
Tommy shuffled through Adam’s contacts and he felt a knot in the pit of his stomach at the names there: “Mom, Kyle, Rachel, Work, Doctor.” Only 5 names. He felt a pang of sympathy for Adam’s loneliness. He had a long painful road ahead with the chemo and it made Tommy upset to know that there were so few people to help him.
After a few more moments of tapping at the phone, Tommy set an alarm for 3 hours from now and left it sitting on the bedside table. With one final look over the sleeping man Tommy stood and left the room.
