We were loading bags into the car,
in the supermarket multi-storey,
when Aunt fell. She simply shrieked
with pain, and toppled over.
At the hospital, the attending
physician orders blood tests.
It is shocking to see Aunt
so gravely ill. The test results
are back within two hours.
Aunt has an unusually high
white cell count. It may be a sign
of leukaemia. Cancer.
