I woke up at 3:32 A.M. in a cold sweat. . . . FEAR . . . ! What had I done? What papers that we signed did he actually take? I didna€™t know! I didna€™t know. I woke Stephen, babbling incoherently about losing the house and a€œwhat did I do?a€ . . . what did I do. I tried to be so careful, but Ia€™m so stupid. What did I do?a€ qYoua€™re getting all upset about nothing, q Steve said. qMaybe you should start taking youa€™re pills again for a while.q qWhy? Ia€™m not getting sick. Ia€™m just afraid.q qYoua€™re obsessing.q qOh, shut up. I am not obsessing. Ia€™m concerned! Damn... Normal people get a€˜concerneda€™, right? People with labels a€˜obsessa€™! Cana€™t I just be concerned about something?q qOkay, youa€™re concerned. But ita€™s 3 oa€™clock in the morning. We cana€™t do anything about it now. In the morning a€“ wea€™ll call him.q qNo. Dona€™t call him. Hea€™ll have time to take out whatever he wants. Just go there and get the papers.q qJust show up ... at his office ... And what if hea€™s not there? Do I go away and just show up again? How many times should I do this?q qOh, come on. I dona€™t know. Just do it.q qOkay. Okay. I know youa€™re afraid and Ia€™ll try to do everything that I can to make you feel more comfortable about this, but can I please get some sleep now? I have to go to work in the morning.q qOkay. But youa€™ll go get the papers, right? ... Well, you had to pee, anyway. ... What?... What are you laughing at.q qYoua€™re funny.q qIa€™m not funny. Stop laughing.q qDona€™t do this to me.q qDo what? ... So, youa€™ll get the papers, right?q qRight. Ia€™ll get the papers. ...if I can, q he added. qWhy dona€™t you roll over and Ia€™ll rub your back for a while.q qOkay.q qHarder.q qYou know, I can call the Bar Association tomorrow and check on him if you want me to.q qYeah. Thata€™s a good idea. I did it already a€“ numbers of months ago. I guess we can do it again though. Yeah, that would make me feel better. ...Ia€™m sure hea€™s okay. I mean, they said he was okay when I called the last time. But you could call again. Thank you.q qOkay. Ia€™ll call tomorrow.q qScratch...q 7:15 found Steve rushing to get out the door. He was in the kitchen making his lunch. I was remembering Saraa€™s very good advice: a€œOnce Ia€™ve chosen a stone, I never let it out of my hands, a€ she had said. This sent another shiver down my back. a€œI know how he did it, a€ I said. Steve looked at me sternly. a€œDid what?a€ he said. He obviously didna€™t want to have this conversation. And he especially didna€™t want to have it now, but he stopped and gave me his full undivided attention. qSwitched the papers, q I said. qI can tell you how he did it. If he did it, q I added.
