“This has been a productive session!” Dr. Smith stands.
Shou doesn’t. “What about Miranda?”
“We haven’t left enough time. Maybe next time.”
“You said we could,” Shou accuses. “You said—”
“Next time, Shou.” Dr. Smith holds the door open to reveal a waiting orderly. “I have other patients to see. Please don’t be difficult.”
The orderly looks at Shou with merciless eyes.
Shou uncurls his fists. He can’t get what he wants, but he can get revenge. He stands and holds his hand out for the doctor to shake. “Next time.”
Dr. Smith looks surprised, but takes Shou’s hand anyway.
