Anne," David continues. Bob stares at him. "Anne is dead," he says. "Anne is dead," he repeats. "Yes,
I've known since yesterday morning," says David. David asks Bob how it happened. "You loved Anne as much as I
did. She was five months pregnant and we were going for one of her pre-natal check ups. We argued about who was
to drive. Maybe if I would have we wouldn't have hit the ambulance. That's the ironic thing about it. There
wasn't a scratch on me," says Bob. "No, just a deep wound," says David.
