Hugh Carter has a weak heart but his wife is also sickly and he works hard in order to send her to a better climate. In his office building the elevator takes him to the 13th floor where he encounters a figure who says he is Death. Hugh protests that he must return to earth and care for his wife. Death explains that he was brought here for a special reason but agrees to send him back if he accepts living another 30 years. Riding the elevator down he sees his wife riding up to the 13th floor and realizes she was destined to die this evening and Death was trying to keep them together.
