A Reunion chapter 15 by: Guitar Hero
The weeks passed by quickly. The trees leaves were no longer green, but orange, red, and yellow. The air was no longer humid but cool and crisp. It was autumn. My favorite time of the year. I was on my way to the doctor's. "Hey Doc." I said. "Why if it isn't Keith Danes. I wouldn't of recognized you if you didn't have that bright gold hair. You're chipper this morning." The doctor did the regular exam then I waited for the doctor to get back from the lab. "Well Keith I see why you were chipper. The medicine is helping with the arthritis and the weak immune system. I want to tell you some good news but I want your family here too." I called the family. Mom, Dad, Johny, Sookie, Jackson, Rory, and my best friend Kevin. "Alright everyone here? Good. I have very positive news." The family was twitching in anticipation. "Keith's immune system is now healthy and normal." The family was jumping up and down and in good spirits. "The bacterium is no longer in his body so the arthritis will leave after a few more weeks of medication." The family was near tears of joy. "And also all the signs of cancer have disappeared! Keith is on the road to recovery. The Infectious Arthritis will soon be gone and with time the joint will heal." Today everyone was excited. My parents were in tears. Johny had a proud look on his face. Sookie and Jackson were holding in the tears that threatened to spill over. Kevin was shaking my hand with tears in his eyes. Seeing his affection I quickly pulled him into a masculine hug. Rory was hugging my mom and dad with urgency. She didn't want me to see her crying so she put her head on dad's shoulder to hide the tears that threatened to overtake her body. I look at her with affection and she pulls me into a tight hug. I didn't care if she was older than me or that she was only my half-sister. I made sure she was wrapped into my once frail arms and told her it was okay. She was older than me but she looked up to me as if I was her brother instead of her half-brother and I was older than her when I was actually was 3 years younger than her.(Let's pretend Keith was born when Lorelai was 19 and Luke was 21. Lorelai is currently 45 and Luke is 47.) I knew that my life was looking bright again. I could return to my once brave, strong, and active self that I once was.
End of chapter 15.
End of story.
I hope you liked the story. I know that was sort of a cliff-hanger but look out for the sequel to A Reunion. It is called The Second Summer. It takes place 1 year after this story. Please read it!
