Ben had so many run-ins with Mara, that he assumed he would see her again the next day. | And indeed he did - although not at all how he expected. | As he was leaving his apartment the next day, he slipped on an icy patch of sidewalk. | Ben slowly opened his eyes to Mara's stupid smile, six inches from his nose. "You have a real knack for embarrassing injuries," she said to his chin. "Is your head ok? I brought you some ice." "Just what I needed," said Ben and threw it at her face. | Mara, however, was too quick for him and jumped out of the way. Having thrown the ice straight up, it came down with a resounding crack on Ben's head. This, unfortunately, put him into a coma from which he would not wake for another 6 years.
