It’s a story about a girl, who just came home from the hospital. She was a victim of a terrible accident. She has a boyfriend, who is there for her to come through this situation.
This accident was really painful for her and she would rather die than live the life she got after the operation.
When she was on her way to the hospital for the exploratory operation she told her husband: “If it turns out to be bad, if it gets very bad … at any time, you promise you’ll help me out of it.
I would do it for you” (p. 2, l. 27-29). Her husband did not say anything but instead, he nodded. This meant that her husband would help her out of her misery or in other words kill herself.
This did also applied if she decided to kill herself he wouldn’t try to save her. After the operation, they only talked about good things, only about her getting better.
