At first, Temika laughed because she thought it was a joke. Vanessa told her that because she was upset Temika did not bring her cigarettes while she was in the hospital. After Temika laughed, Vanessa got up from her bed and punched Temika in the face, leaving a cut in her mouth. A witness was standing in the doorway and corroborated Temika’s story.
