Nothing really had changed since yesterday.

Yet the sensation persisted. All through the middle she felt a certain heavy warmth then cold. Like a brick had been thrust inside her chest, hot and wet before seeping into her cavities.
She put a hand against her breastbone, considered calling a doctor. Certainly nobody in her house was equipped to diagnose the problem.
She looked out her studio window, which faced the apartment in the adjacent building. Through the half-drawn shades she could see the torso of the man who lived there. He was preparing dinner.
Warm then cold it persisted. Clutching her belly she continued to stare at the man in the other building. He wore a blue singlet and black pants.
She realised at this moment she had never seen his face and this thought made everything expand, just for a second. Everything right through to the tips of her fingers.
She didn’t feel happy or sad.
