An unexpected guest

Ahh sleep would be good.  As he lay back on the crisp sheets, his mind went over his last patient.  He wondered about the people that came to him, what kind of help were they expecting?  Some of the fears were just, the only word he could think of was, ridiculous.
He didn't dare speak that thought out loud.  He picked up the remote to turn on the television, there was a soft knock on the door.
He opened it, surprised looks on both sides, his for who had knocked, the guest for what he was wearing..

The End
