"Are you ready to go babe."

When she entered the bedroom, her roomate had turned off the lights and it was pitch black. Julie didn't want to wake her up so she didn't turn on the lights and fumbled around in the dark looking for her purse. As she searched, she could heavy breathingin the dark, Julie assumed it was her roomate suffering the effectsof her heavy cold.
