Rocket

He bent his head to look closer at the thing he cradled in his hand. It was much larger than he expected, and it kind of scared him a little bit. There were veins and pieces of flesh; something jagged stuck out. It reminded him of a tumor.

He hadn’t thought it would be like this. All day he had thought about it, wondering how he would finally deal with it. It distracted him all through lunch with his boss and the morning’s meetings.

Now that it was out, he marveled that such a thing had been inside his nose.
