Maxwell sauntered down the hospital corridor with new man Luke in tow. “Here’s the other patient shower room. Hey George. Come meet your new helper.” A bug-eyed bald man appeared from behind the curtain.
“Nice day, Maxwell. Who’s this?”
“Luke is here for the summer. You’ll train him?”
“Sure, sure. Of course. Glad to help.” George’s spray-can clattered to the mosaic floor.” He bent to retrieve it.
Maxwell whispered. “Watch this.” He flicked on the shower.
“Dear, dear. Oh no.” George raced to mop water down the drain.
“Why doesn’t he…”
“Lost his mind. Can’t think to shut it off.”
