Adam found Sarah crying in her room. He hugged her as she told him about her latest argument with Ryan.
“I want the type of love you and Mom have..”
Adam remembered how he had courted his wife years ago and how many times they had almost let go.
“It’s not perfect, we have our own problems. It took us a long time to get here. You’ll get there too.” He replied wiping her tears.
“How is it that you and Mom never fight this much?”
Adam smiled and moved his hands “Sign language makes your arms pain after awhile.”
Tonight’s game had a new player. The visiting team was surprised because they hadn’t seen him during any of the other games that season. It was close and the game looked like it would go into overtime.
The referee blew his whistle and the new boy came forward for a foul shot. He scored and the home team had the lead.
A few minutes later the buzzer announced the home teams’ victory. They had won their 1st championship.
The boy paused the tape. “See Dad, That’s why I call you a champion!”
He looked at his wheelchair and nodded wistfully.
