Mrs. Pritchett


Mandeep Dewal

I awoke and found her standing at the foot of my bed… in the glow of the machines I could only see a silhouette, short and thin...  from her accent I guessed she was Indian… in whispery voice she told me that this was her last night at the hospital and I was her last patient. “What will you do now?”  “…I’ve decided to go where no one knows me. I want a new life.”  Moving to live where no one knew you, shucking off your old like an old snakeskin!  The idea ran through me like a shiver.  p. 180
