When Demond got up for the third time that night Alicia got worried. It was 2.30 in the morning. He had occasionally felt shortness of breath and would get up at night. But today was more than usual, and that’s what worried her.
“You should see a doctor,” She said wrapping the bed sheet around her and half rising from the bed.
“Oh, it’s nothing. May be something I ate,” said Demond, rubbing his chest as he walked to the bathroom in the dark.
“I’ll be all right,” Demond said again as he returned to the bed. He coughed a bit, but settled down after a while and went back to sleep.
