| Anna Kalor walked into Autumn's room.
"I know I haven't come to see you in a long time. I've been so busy, we'r eworking on the school musical, can you believe it's that time again? This year it is Paint Your Wagon. Wish you could be in it, it's just not the same without you!" she rushed to explain. She didn't stop for a breath, Autumn mused.
"Hey, Anna," she said.
"We have a place to go today, you know, like we used to do all the time. Let's go have some fun!"
"What? You can't leave the hospital."
"No, but I have a friend to visit."
Anna pushed Autumn's wheelchair down the hall towards the elevator.
"Where are we going?"
"There is a girl here who also has seizures. She's been in the hospital for a week, and she's beeing released today. I just want you to meet her, and I need to say goodbye."
Sierra's mom was helping her pack her things, and Sierra stopped when she saw Autumn wheel into the room.
"Is that your new friend?" her mother asked.
"Yeah, her name is Autumn! She is so awesome!"
"Hey, I just came to introduce my friend Anna Kalor. We've been best friends for as long as I can remember. And...I just wanted to say goodbye!" The nurse, Doris, who wasn't as nice as Sariah, bustled in.
"Okay, break up the party! It's time for Sierra to go!"
"Can I at least see her to the door?" Autumn asked.
"No!" Doris shot back.
"You may," Sariah's calm voice broke through the pandemonium. Autumn wheeled to the door with Sierra, and gave her a big hug before she left.
"Tell your teacher Anela I think she's lucky to have grabbed Kyle's interest. And I think you're lucky to have her as a teacher. Get well, and don't forget to take your tegretol and lamectol. Hope it works for you. See you soon!"
"Yeah, laters, Autumn," Sierra said tearfully, as she was wheeled out the door.
