The phone rings and I answer, "Thank you for calling Business Systems this is Mandy how can I help you?" The voice on the other end asks for Amanda and I reply, "This is she". The voice says she is calling to remind me of my 4:00 PM dental appointment. I sigh and tell her I will be there. I enter the building and walk over to the elevator; I push the up button and patiently wait. The elevator door promptly opens and I get in. I push the button with a two on it and the doors close, up I go. Once on the second floor I exit the elevator and immediately I can smell the mixture of wintergreen flavored tooth paste and bleach out in the hall even before I go into Dr. Adelson's office. As soon as I open the outer door, the blast of cool air from the air conditioner hits me in the face making me shiver all over. I walk in and add my name to the list on the sign in sheet. Harriet, the gray hared women behind the white frosted glass slide window, sees me and lets me know the doctor will be ready in a minute. While I wait for the dental assistant in her crisp white uniform to call out my name, I look at the fish in the large blue tank in the corner of the room. The sleek fish dart about playing hide and seek with the plastic mermaid at the bottom of the tank while tiny silver bubbles slip to the top of the tank"s surface and break silently while I wait my turn. Then I turn and look to see a photo album sitting on a coffee table. I pick it up only to see pictures of decaying teeth and gums. I quickly close the book and shudder at the thought as I roll my tongue over my teeth and thank God they are all there. The nurse calls my name and I enter the inner office and sit in the brown leather chair looking at all the shiny stainless steel equipment. As I sit down the bright overhead light momentarily blinds me; I feel like a deer about to meet his death"¦then I realize, it"s my turn.

Wake up, Angel. Hurry, you have...Wake up, Angel. Hurry, you have to go.. - What"s up Mum, are we going for a travel? - Yes -she lied- you have to go with Mr. Gou; "“an old friend of the family- we'll come later. So I packed and went to Mr Gou's, where I spent some of the happiest days of my life, it was the childhood dream of an unexpected holiday: I didn't have to go to school, and Mr. Gou's grandchildren came to play with me every afternoon. My parents and my brother Luis "“the elder, 11- came to visit me every day or two, bringing clothes and toys from home. But Manel, my other brother, didn't came, so I asked Luis in one of his visits: "Luis, why doesn't Manel come to visit me?", and he didn"t answer. After a few days, I returned home. There was a lot of people there, but when I searched for Manel, I didn't found him. Two old and ugly women were talking at home's hall, and I listened to their conversation. They were talking about some funeral! Then I run, I run to my mother, and asked her: "Is him dead, is Manel dead?" We lived in an old, art noveau house, with high flats, and a huge hall, one of the biggest rooms of the house. The hall had a big, wide curtain, of a green and rough fabric, that could be used to divide the room in two. I run to it, rolled the whole curtain around my body once and again, and there, completely hidden from the world or maybe the world completely hidden from my eyes, I cried. I cried as I had never cried before, and as I will never cry again. He was 9, and I was 6. When I went back to the school, I walked to the teacher, to explain him why I've missed the classes, but he already know it. Everyone already knew it: some of my friends came to me, and told me they were sorry about it. But one guy yelled on me: "Ha ha, look at Angel, his brother is dead!". On one of my friends, to whom I will always be thanked, told him: "Shut-up Jordi, imagine your sister died, how would you feel?". He paused, like thinking about it, and didn't say more.
