Fake Legs

Once upon a time there was a young child. His name was Evan and he was in a wheelchair. He thought that being in a wheelchair was terrible, but what he didn’t know was it was good.

One day at recess, Evan was practicing walking. Then he realized something good about being in a wheelchair: you have great upper body strength. On his way back to class, he raced down the hall.

Then school was out, and Evan kept practicing walking at home.

Evan asked, “Mom, I would really like to walk. Can I get fake legs.”

His mom said, “Yes.”

So they went to the hospital and made an appointment. That day Evan had the surgery. When it was almost done, the doctors realized Evan had an infection on his leg.

They finished the surgery. Evan woke up, and his mom was the first thing he saw.

She said, “We’re gonna have to stay here for a while.”

Before she could finish, Evan asked, “Why?”

His mom said, “Because you got an infection on your leg.”

Evan yelled, “NOOOOOOOOOO!” Then his side hurt. Ouch!

He had another surgery to fix his leg. After that, it worked. He yelled, “Yesssss!!!”

Then Evan went home and started walking, and it worked. So Evan started to run.

The next day he ran to school and had a great day.
