Break And Enter?
A few days later, Sadie sees a strange man coming out of Miles' apartment
and locking the door. Curious, she goes up to him to find out who
Sadie: Excuse me. Hi. I'm Sadie.
I live just down the hall.
Andy: Well, hi there, Sadie. My
Sadie: Um, Andy, I don't mean to
be so forward, but what were you doing in Miles' apartment? I mean,
is he away or did he move out or something?
Andy: Oh, you didn't hear?
Sadie: Hear what?
Andy: Miles was in an accident.
He had a mild heart attack while driving the other day and crashed
his cab into the side of the Front St. Bridge. Fortunately the heart
attack was the only injury he sustained.
Sadie: Oh my god! I…I had no idea.
I mean, I saw the report on TV the other day, but I didn't realize
that he was involved. I'm so sorry to hear that. That's terrible.
Andy: Well, it's not so bad. As
I said, he wasn't seriously hurt. He's being discharged tomorrow.
I just came by to drop off his things from his locker at the taxi
depot. I work with Miles.
Sadie: But his heart…I mean…is
Andy: I'm afraid that's a different
story. His heart's good for now, but the doctors are worried that
his condition might worsen if he doesn't start taking it easy. He's
been put on medical leave from the company. He should be ok, but
this isn't the first time this has happened. He needs to start taking
better care of himself…I'm sorry, are you and he close?
Sadie: I…I wouldn't say close…We're
neighbours. I mean, we're sort of friends. I always talk to him
whenever I see him in the hall, but we don't really hangout or anything.
Andy: Huh. Well, if anyone likes
to chat it's old Miles. He's got to be one of the friendliest guys
I know. Anyway, he'll be out tomorrow, so you might want to pop
in and visit him sometime. He'll probably be kinda lonely not being
able to work and all.
Sadie: Ok. I will.
Andy: Alright, well, you take care
