Susie and several of her neighbours experienced stigmata, bleeding on their palms. Bill took Susie to the hospital, but by the time she was seen by someone the bleeding had stopped. A few days later it happened again, though not as strongly. Susie felt she was special, chosen by God, though Bill tried to convince her otherwise.
Bill also experienced symptoms, but his were of suffocation. The Doctor explained to Susie that this was because Bill was suffering from Alzheimer's disease or something similar and had less than three years to live. Susie decided Bill would be better off with his pregnant wife. (PROSE: Mordieu)
