30. Knives

So the doctor came. He decided to pull out the glass, because it was cutting into some vein or something like that. So, on a count of three, we pulled it out. And I heard the most purest scream I had ever heard in my whole life. It cut through the air like knives. The knives that cut though my heart. The scream hurt my heart like the glass removal hurt Aaron. But finally it was done. But more blood seeped through the cut and onto the wood. The doctor tried to sop it up. He wrapped Aaron's leg many times, very tightly. He ordered us to go home at once, and gave Aaron a little crutch to use.

 

When we had finally gotten home, the white bandage was red again. The doctor had given us more cloth to wrap his leg with once this happened. He lay by the fire. Everything happened so quickly, but somehow the day felt so long.
