Dr. Hsieh shakes your hand. "Well, I'm sorry to say that it isn't looking good. We've found a malignant tumor on one of her lungs. We removed much of it, but we're afraid that removing anything further than what we've done might cause some problems."

He looks over at your mother, who still lies on the bed unconscious. "But I think it's very likely that she'll pull out of it, so don't worry too much."

Bluff Check (Hsieh) +1; Roll 7
vs.
Sense Motive Check (Alex) +1; Roll 14 - WIN


You can tell his last statement was a lie.

(After having done some miscellaneous things to prepare the room, the nurse has left.)

Alex goes to sit in a chair by what very well may be his mothers death bed. He begins talking to her more to keep himself calm than anything else. He talks about things they have done and all the things they wanted to do. He talks for a long time, always fighting back the tears. He knows his mother is going to die an untimely death. Even if she doesn't die now her life is invariably going to be cut short. He thinks of all the things she is never going to get to do. She will never see her grandchildren, not to say it is looking like she would have had seen them anyway.

Alex talks until he cannot bear to talk anymore and begins to sob with his elbows on his knees and his face pressed firmly into his palms.

Dr. Hsieh has left you alone with your mother.

The situation keeps on like this. Every day you return, and every day is pretty much the same. Every couple of days you pass Dr. Ayers on your way to see your mother, who regards you solemnly.

On the 6th day your mother starts to stir a little bit in the evening. She repeats your name as she weakly reaches out.

Alex grabs his mothers hand so firecly she furrows her brow at the slight pain.

" Mom, you're awake!"

"Alex.... Son, I... I'm sorry I didn't... tell you anything," she wheezes.

Why didn't you mom? Why? Alexs sobs.

"I didn't... want you to worry about me. Maybe I... took it too far this time...."

Lucia, shaking, reaches up to touch your shoulder. "Alex.... I love you.... I'm so... sorry...." Her arm falls limply as she loses consciousness again.

Alex bolts into the hallway.


"We need a doctor in here! quick!" He screams hopping up and down pulling at his hair.

Dr. Ayers is nearby and hears you. He snaps into a run, bolting past you into the room.

He starts to slow down as he checks on her. He turns to you. "Nothing seems to have changed. What happened?"

"She woke up! She talked! Now she is back the way she was before? Is she ok? Why is she acting like this!?" Alex yells from the doorway pointing at his mother.
