We meet again over hot chocolate the next night, both unable to stand being alone and vulnerable in the dark.

“Is it…is it okay I made hot chocolate? I could make coffee or tea instead,” I say, suddenly sure I’m treating her like a child.

“No, this is good. Really.”

“Good.”

“So, I’ve been thinking about names.”

“Good!”

“You have to understand. All the people I knew in the hospital were ‘Nurse’ or ‘Doctor.’ All of you here are ‘Margery.’ You probably watched movies with stories, thumbed through books. I watched training films, read manuals. How can I pick a name?”
