Ray arrived with a cup of coffee in his hand. "Here you go." He handed it to me.
The warm coffee slowly warmed my body up and I felt unusually alive. Ray looked at me with relief, he slowly gave a soft pat on my back. "What the heck happened to you? I was worried like f*ck!"
"I don't know. My chest suddenly hurt."
"Should I call your Mom?"
"Nah, I don't want them to worry."
"Fine, how about a check up?"
"You got work tomorrow Ray. I'll do it alone." Ray was hesitant. Like I said, he knew me for being too dependent. "You're gonna take the bus?"
"No! I'm gonna drive of course."
"You can drive?"
"I can't. I got a driver's license because I can't drive." I said sarcastically as I took a sip of my coffee and then I placed it on my desk.
It was quiet for a few seconds then Ray gave a sigh and put my head on his chest. "I missed you Gabe. So much." I wrapped my arms to his waist. "I missed you too."
