You Do Not Have Cancer

While I was in bed, a continuous rain fell. It was welcome in this dry season. Everything is quiet when it rains, no dogs barking and no roosters singing.  Without noise, the little girl who lives with us has slipped on the couch next to our bed. Maybe she got scared of something.  She went…
