“For what?” I was checking his preventive care screen, making sure I didn’t need to harass him about his colonoscopy.
“I’m getting married on Tuesday.”
I looked up at him and smiled. “That’s wonderful news!”
He had been terribly lonely since his wife had died suddenly a few years back, though he had sworn to me at the time that he would never marry again.
I clicked over to the social history screen so I could update his marital status.
“You know her,” he said.
“Oh, really? Who?”
He told me the name.
My blood ran cold.
I had treated her for a head cold a few weeks before. She had told me she was going on a honeymoon in a few weeks, flashing a giant diamond that sparkled almost as brightly as her smile.
“I am going to make a lot of money off of him…”
He was going to have his heart broken.
“Congratulations!” I said to them both.
