Drabble: Fraud


“They’re making you into some kind of hero out there, you know.”

“We both know I’m not.”

His voice went icy. “You don’t have to remind me, of all people.”

“Bill, I–”

He cut me off, voice friendly as if nothing had happened. “Either way, you should enjoy it. You want me to bring in some newspapers, maybe try to get a TV in here?”

“I really don’t need to see that.”

“Suit yourself.” Then the voice again: “Just don’t think that makes up for what you did to Tina.” The hospital room seemed to shudder as he walked out.
