The Circus

“Breath. Just breath. Nice deep breaths. Breath ln, hold seven seconds, out for seven seconds.” Ralph whispered into Susan’s ear. Pastor George stood on the opposite side of Susan from Ralph. Both men whispered into her ear, “breath, in and out.”

Beside the alarm ringing in her head there was the noise from her fit watch warning her the blood pressure had escalated. Susan knew she must walk away now. The hairs on the back of her neck stood up. There is one person in this world that has the gift of making people’s lives miserable. There she was in the middle of the police cars, fire trucks and an ambulance. Two paramedics with a large blue bag were approaching Susan. “No. This can’t be happening. I’m not having another heart attack.” Susan mumbled out loud.

Ralph realized that his approach for Susan to see the chaos at their home wasn’t the best way. “Let’s get you inside.” Said Ralph.

“To late good buddy.” Stated Pastor George.

“Well, well, well. The rumor is true.” Said Nancy. “You are live with Nancy New’s. She pointed her smart phone to George, “Any comment Pastor George to your’s and Susan’s affair? By the way where is Michelle. She has moved back to her mother’s. Tsk tsk Pastor. Wait till the board sees this video.” Smirked Nancy.

“Oh poor fragile Susan. Having another heart attack? You poor baby. This is what happens to sinners.” A sinister laugh was released from Nancy.

Susan began to steep away. She had sweat on her face. Was becoming dizzy. She hung on to Ralph and George like her life depended on it. The paramedics had quickened their pace. Susan wanted to collapse in the house. Not in front of the circus. Susan was becoming disoriented. Not sure what really happened. All she remembered was being lifted off of the ground. She was being carried into her home. She woke up with an oxygen mask on her face. Michelle stood over her with left hand wrapped in gauze.
