“You know how people say, ‘if they could take your pain, they would…” my friend says.
“Yeah,” I reply. I wish I could give him my migraine.
“Yeah, I don’t want it. I’m not one of those people,” he laughs.
“Asshole,” I give him a good shove for that one. I press my cold fingers against him and he cringes.
“Take my headache for me,” I complain.
“I would if I could,” the same friend replies.
“Thank you,” I reply softly, grateful.
