Julie missed going outside. Ever since she got sick a month ago, her life seemed like little more than a dream.
All day long, the only thing she could do was watch the television stationed on the wall in front of her.
“Sleep well, mom,” Julie said as her mother walked into her room to turn off the television.
Her mother didn’t say anything to her again that night. Instead, she adjusted Julie’s pillow, sighed, and wondered if her daughter would ever come out of her coma.
