Difficult Decision, Part Two
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     Dr. Hartley poked his head in the front office. "Hello, Miss Spencer! How can I help you and Mr. Snuggles today?" While the affable Dr. Hartley and his office manager dealt with old Miss Spencer's dog, Carey Connor and I went into the back of the clinic to give the dogs that were boarded there some exercise. That would enable us to talk privately.
 
2     "I hope you won't indulge in any gossip after you hear what I have to say," Carey began as he led two white German shepherds to the run. Whatever Carey told me, however juicy the details, I promised to keep it to myself. I didn't want to antagonize or hurt someone I respected and admired.
 
3     Carey looked at the cinder block walls separating the kennel from the rest of the clinic. That wall - combined with the dogs' barking - would be enough to insulate our conversation from the ears of others. He turned his attention to me. Carey clenched his jaw and looked away before speaking. "Drugs not only destroy the lives of those who use them, they destroy families. They destroy dreams. I know, because my older brother got involved in drugs."
 
4     That was news to me. I didn't even know Carey had an older brother.
