Time was unaware of Clint's fear. Slow seconds danced with the dust in the obstructed blades of sunlight before escaping from the house.
All this time, Clint urged life and blood back into his legs as, gradually, a feeling of pins and needles crept through them. It felt like it was his unstoppable will against his immoveable legs, but the answer was too slow coming.
Old Ma Cody's words were clear and strong, startling Clint and making him jump as they shattered the stillness shrouding the room. He had no idea she was awake.
"Come in Zeke McGinley. Come in!"

    Really gripping, Drew. Just got caught up again. Been out of commission lately. My ankle is still swelled up and I've been to my doctor and the hospital and they can't figure out why it's happening. I've had X-rays and ultrasounds and they've come up with nothing. I guess that's why they say doctors "practice" medicine.

    Haha that could be true. I hope you get it sorted sooner rather than later, mate, good luck with it.
    Thanks for the comment Christopher, glad you're enjoying it.
