The Bleeding House (2011)
Marilyn: So Nick tell us, what do you do?
Nick: I cut people up... but it's OK I'm a surgeon.
Gloria: What's it like?
Marilyn: Gloria, why don't you excuse yourself?
Nick: I met a family outside of Butler, Pennsylvania, they put me up for a few days, the Millers.Father had just been hired in a munitions factory, mother was a librarian.They were struggling but surviving, two kids, lovely things, boy and a girl.Anyway, I came down the stairs the second night I stayed there only to find the mother sitting in the corner weeping.She saw me and was startled, tried to explain what was wrong, stumbled through a confession, said she felt terribly unhappy, couldn't figure out why.She said she believed her life had a direction but no meaning what so ever.We got to talking and eventually she got to telling me things she never told anyone before, these were the things that were ruining the joys in her life.She wept all night, i'll never forget that, next morning at breakfast was oatmeal, shes smiling brighter than ever.I looked at her and she was smiling, I mean really looked and I could tell it was just a mask she had put back up.That's not anyway for a soul to find peace Marilyn.
Marilyn: And did you help that family?
Nick: I believe I did.
