The Rest Of The Summer
Bolivia and Derek have fun teaching Lucette new tricks and new words. But Rory is not having any fun at all. He seems jealous because Bolivia and Derek are friends. He does not participate in the activities they do. He just watches them. He feels very sad and lonely.
Soon, Rory is getting use to Bolivia being around. They soon become friends! Now, Rory participates in play with Lucette. They also do other things. Sometimes they will go to the town pool, go to the park with Lucette and get ice cream. One day, they decide to climb trees. Rory decides to climb the tallest tree. Bolivia and Derek warn Rory to be careful, but he does not hear them. He soon loses his balance and falls. Bolivia and Derek run to him. They ask he is all right. He does not know. Derek then runs to Rory house to tell his parents. They call the ambulance. They then take Rory to the hospital. They have to wait for a while. After the x-rays are done, the doctor tells them that Rory broke one of his arm and one of his legs. They are very sad. He has to stay in the hospital for 4 weeks!
When they get back to Rory’s house, Bolivia has a brilliant idea! When Rory gets out of the hospital, they can have a Welcome Home party for him! Derek thought it was a good thought. So did Rory’s parents. But it would also cost a lot of money too. They decided that they would do it! The next day, while Rory’s parents visited Rory to keep them company, Bolivia’s parents, Bolivia, Derek, and even Rory’s baby sister Edna made a plan. They are going to invite neighbors and other people that Rory and his parents know. Lucette even helped! From then on, Rory’s parents visited him. 2 weeks have gone by. Just 2 more to go. They already invited 40 people to come. Then soon came one more week to go. Rory was going to be released on the Monday of next week. Saturday and Sunday were really busy days. They already had the decorations set up and the food was made. They even set up a jumping castle they had for many years.
Then Monday came. Everybody was very excited! They picked up Rory than took him back to his house. When they got in the house, everything was pitch black. People were hiding! They counted to 3 then turned on the lights! Everybody yelled “Surprise”! Rory was very happy! They then ate and played! It seemed like it would never end! But soon, everyone else started getting very tired! Rory was very happy and said “Thank You”! to the people who came and to Bolivia and Derek and his family!
For the rest of the summer, they had more fun and had been careful! But then, the summer ended and Bolivia had to go back to her home! The boys were very sad! But, Bolivia wrote frequently when she had time! The boys wrote back to! Then, the next summer, without even telling Rory and Derek, Bolivia came back! They had such a great time! They will never forget those summers together! I hope the one who read this essay enjoyed it!
