Chapter 3

But recall the former days when, after you were enlightened, you endured a hard struggle with sufferings, sometimes being publicly exposed to abuse and affliction, and sometimes being partners with those so treated. Hebrews, 10:32-33 Paul helped Derrick carefully slip his jersey over his head and around his cast, and then tied his shoes. Derrick sat on the side of the hospital bed laughing that his father had to help dress him like he was a little kid again. The doctor had kept Derrick in the hospital overnight to make sure he didn't have a concussion and he was more than ready to go home. Paul and Lilly had spent the night in the hotel across the street.

"Oh man, I have to ride that thing outta here?" asked Derrick, seeing Lilly walk into the room with an orderly pushing a wheelchair.

"Sorry, young man. Hospital regulations", replied the orderly.

"But dad, I can walk….I can run….I can dance!" Paul, Lilly and the orderly laughed as Derrick danced across the floor imitating James Brown.

"Well, you can dance as soon as you get in the parking lot. For right now, you can ride", replied Paul.

"Alright…let's lock and load." Derrick jumped into the chair and everyone started out of the room.

"Oh, let me use the bathroom before we go. I know midtown traffic is going to be murder. Go ahead and I'll meet you downstairs", said Paul.
