Setting: Her bedroom.
I was relaxing in my bed, flipping through an old medical journal when he knocked on my door. I'd spent a good bit of the day in my bed actually. Alternating between trying to read and do something productive, and curling up with my pillow and staring off into space. Not really the best of times. Alas, such is life, or some ridiculous saying like that. "Come in," I said, sitting up slightly and put my journal down on my bedside table.
