Heartbreaker

Chapter 7.

Dr. Boutros called her at the office. "No need to upset you, ZoŽ. Dr. Wendt agreed that what we saw is probably a cyst, but it looks a little bit strange. I think Max should come in for another X-Ray in about a month."

"Then you don't think it's cancer?" she whispered.

"No, I wouldn't think so at this time."

"But you don't know for SURE?"

Pause. "Let's have another look in a month and see if anything has changed."

Jules stopped by. "Any word from Wiz?"

"Not a thing," ZoŽ said. "And I'm swamped with obits." She was angry, because she'd been unable to go on the police beat with Perry.

"Hang in there," Jules said walking away.
