My heart starts to pound in my chest, my hands tremor, and there's a roaring in my ears.
That's it! The roaring made me misunderstand him.
"What?" Damn, my voice sounded weak.
"A cane? Do you want us to get a cane? We can try it for fun?"
For fun? A cane? Is the man crazy? How can a cane be fun? I've heard they hurt!
I tell him so.
"Come on. You said that about the paddle. But I know in the right circumstance you enjoy it."
Damn, he's a bastard for reminding me. I don't tell him so.
