“All the tests given to me (color tests and tube tests and various CT scans and X-rays and blood cultures and piss tests and stress tests) showed that I didn’t have The Silences. Only I did. There was no other disease I could possibly have. The Silences was in my body. It lived in my stomach, slipping in and out of the acidic lining. The lining thinned the longer The Silences stayed inside. The doctors checked for fevers and coughs and pains and chills. They looked at the bloodstains on my bed, touched their nails to it, then sniffed the red. The blood was healthy. There was no other place in my body The Silences could be hiding.”
