My heart flitters, as though a moth flutters inside. Christ, was that a heart attack? Need to breathe – stay calm. Was that normal? I feel fine, but that wasn’t normal – was it normal?
Can’t eat. Can’t hold my fork! Just breathe through your nose.
Apologise to Sarah.
Well, go on! Do it!
Jesus, you sound like you’re having a stroke! Stop scaring her! Pull yourself together – keep breathing!
Fingers are clamping up – body’s tingling. Pins and needles all over. My mind’s a tornado. Got to keep calm.
“James? Are you ok?”
I’m losing it – I’m losing it.
