Minutes A Piece
Andy finishes his visit with Miles and comes out to send Sadie in. Despite the assurances of Andy and the doctor, she still feels bad about what happened.
Andy: (coming out of the room)…Goodnight, Miles, I’ll come and
get you tomorrow. Bye.
give someone trouble
Sadie: How is he? Is he okay?
Andy: He’s fine. A bit tired, but he wants to see you. Go on in.
I’ll wait for you in the lobby.
Sadie: Okay. Thanks, Andy. (Goes into the room). Miles, It’s Sadie.
Miles: Sadie. Thanks for all your help, today…if it wasn’t for
you I’d…well, who knows what would have happened.
Sadie: Andy and the doctor assured me that’s it’s not my fault
that you ended up here again. But, somehow, I just can’t help thinking that’s not true. Miles, I…I’m so sorry.
I never should have said those things to you. I got you upset and everything…
Miles: Sadie, it’s alright. My heart’s been giving me trouble
for a long time. If anybody’s to blame it’s me. I should’ve taken better care of myself…Today…I wanted to
go outside. It was a nice day, and I was sick of being cooped up in my room. I walked around and bought those flowers and
then came by your place.
Sadie: Yes, but still, the flowers, if…
Miles: Sadie, the point is I chose to go outside. I chose to go
for a walk. I could have simply just come by your place,
but I was stubborn and didn’t want to waste another day
in my room. I over exerted myself. I should have known better.
Sadie: Alright, I guess…
Miles: I tell you what. I get out of here tomorrow. I think I would
be less tempted to do such a foolish thing, if I had some
company. If you have time, would you like to stop by?
Sadie: Sure. I mean, if you think it will help…
Miles: I’d be grateful. But for now I think should sleep. I’ll
see you tomorrow, okay?
Sadie: Yeah, sure, sorry. Goodnight, Miles. I’ll see you tomorrow.
