Sue’s Uphill Battle

It wasn’t that big of a deal, not these days anyway, but Sue was convinced she faced an uphill battle. What if they didn’t believe her? What if they laughed, or ran away, or worse – ignored her completely? What if she was accused of keeping some big secret from those that she loved?

“Guys,” she coughed. “Guys, I…”

“We know.” They replied in a greasy chorus. “We know.”
