For WDCs 11th birthday party! Write a story in 11 lines.
"Dad, what is this all about? Is Leroy okay?"
"Calm down, Diane, just...he's hurt really bad."
"He's in surgery right now. But Diane -- Diane! Diane. Stay here. The doctors are doing all they can. Diane! Leave it to the doctors."
"It isn't enough!"
"Diane, just calm down, alright? Come 'ere, come 'ere. He'll be alright."
"Mom! Dad, there's mom! Hey! Mom, did you see Leroy?"
"Hon, mom doesn't know anything. Leroy is in critical condition. The doctors won't let anyone in."
"No, Paul. They let me in."
"Are you serious? April, he's dying --"
"Leroy isn't dying. Leroy is dead."
((Woot! My first contest, I guess...))
