Summer Love

Every summer, Kaylee has to go to the Kalihari Desert while her mom is studying meerkats with other scientists. She's the only teenager there, and it's very lonely. Kaylee expects her last summer going to be miserable, but that all changes when she meets the love of her life--Louis Tomlinson.


16. Up All the hospital

Pretty soon we were landing down next to a hospital. The bed I was on was also a gurney, so the nurses wheeled me through the doors and into a room, with Mom, Louis, and Melissa (she decided she wanted to come) following close behind.

A half hour later, the doctor came in with the x-ray. The bone was completely broken—it was like my foot was just dangling! He wrapped a heavy-duty cast around my ankle (with my color of choice—lavender), and gave me a huge bottle of anti-pain pills. Thank goodness I learned how to swallow a pill last year!

“I’d like Kaylee to stay overnight,” Dr. Smith announced. “Just to make sure she’s doing good with the cast and that everything’s going just right.”

“I will stay with her,” Mom said. “Oh…the big trail observation is tomorrow! I have to stay, though.”

“Mom, go to work,” I told her. “You’ve got important work to do, and I’ll be in good hands.”

Mom sighed, still unsure.

“I can stay, too,” Louis said. “It’s not like I’ve flown all the way out here to do work…I’m just here to sit around and do nothing!”

Mom nodded. “I guess you’re right. If you really don’t mind, Kaylee.”

“I don’t,” I assured her.

“Splendid!” Dr. Smith exclaimed. “You would have to pay for the passenger helicopter services back, but I’ll let you go for free considering the situation you guys are in.”

Within an hour, Mom and Melissa were telling me goodbye as they were getting ready to board the helicopter. I probably would’ve gotten worried or sad a little bit, but this was much better than sleeping alone on a rock in the middle of the desert with an uncasted foot. I switched on the TV on the wall and started flipping through channels.

“How are there English channels down here?” I wondered.

“Dang it!” Louis exclaimed. “I wanted some African soap operas!”

Before I knew it, I had fallen asleep. The next morning I woke up to being wheeled into a helicopter, Louis walking alongside. He noticed my awakening. “We’re leaving already?” I asked.

“Yeah, you slept in quite a while!” Louis replied. “It’s noon.”

I eyes grew wide. “Wow.”

I was locked into place inside the helicopter and Louis sat on the end looking at my cast. “Doctor says you only have to have it on for two weeks!” he exclaimed. “But since it would probably be a lot to come all the way back here, he gave us some special knife for cutting it open.”

“Thank goodness,” I said.

Soon the helicopter slowly lowered to the ground. I saw everyone that went on the meerkat trip standing in a line nearby. A nurse helped me into a wheelchair, and Louis wheeled me down a ramp outside. My mom ran over and gave me a huge hug. “How are you feeling?” she asked me.

“I’m just fine,” I told her.

“Were you okay last night with Louis?”

“Of course,” I replied.
