Loretta stepped away from the mike and focused her sharp pink eyes on the short frame of Dr. Ochentaker.

“Oh, okay…” Loretta sighed. She noticed that she was often catching herself sighing for no reason lately. “Just a minute!” she said through the microphone, for the angel’s benefit.
“Yes, but I still can’t believe that I’ve caught one! Finally!”
He laughed and strutted out, whistling a simple tune.
Loretta sighed a third time. Didn’t he realize how much she had done, too?
