Page 10: Are you Afraid of Cars?

Joe was screaming and yelling at the top of his lungs.  Alice, the nurse, came running into his room.  Grabbing his arm and shaking him, Alice said loudly, “Mr. Aden, wake up!”  You’re having a nightmare!  Wake up!”

Joe opened his eyes.  He saw Alice, but he still saw Tessie, too.  “Help her,” Joe said.

“Help who?”  Alice asked.

“Tessie. She’s hurt.”

“Mr. Aden, no one’s hurt.  Ain’t no one in here except you and me.  You had a bad dream.”  Alice let her guard down, sat down on the side of his bed, and tried to figure out what she could say to comfort Joe.  

Joe looked out his window and saw those objects still going around in circles.  Everything was becoming terribly frightening to him.  Alice could see the fear in his eyes.  Trying to figure out what he was looking at out the window, she asked Joe if he saw someone out the window.  

Joe pointed out the window and said, “Those…moving…they scare me.”  

Alice looked, and she couldn’t figure out for the life of her what he was looking at.  All she saw was a parking ramp.  “Mr. Aden, is there something you see in the parking ramp that scares you?”

“They move,” Joe mumbled.

“Are you talking about the cars?” 
“Don’t know,”  Joe said. 
Not knowing for sure if that was what Joe was referring to, Alice explained to him that the cars would not hurt him.  She explained that people drive cars to take them places.

Joe had a blank look on his face.  He didn’t understand, but he listened.

Facts:  Joe did see the cars outside of his hospital window, going up and down the parking ramp.  He didn’t know what they were, and he was afraid of them.
