Second Chances, Part 2
By Mary Lynn Bushong

1     Jake was finally back at high school after an accident had left him wheelchair bound. He'd already been called to the principal's office, and his school day has barely started.
2     The wide glass door to the office was propped open. The secretaries looked up with smiles. One waved toward Mr. Harmon's office. "He's waiting for you," she said.
3     Jake nodded and rolled toward the other office. "Mr. Harmon?" he asked as he stopped at the open door.
4     "Jake!" Mr. Harmon greeted him with a wide smile. "Welcome back to school. Sorry to pull you out of class, but I wondered if you could help me with something."
5     "I'll try, sir," said Jake hesitantly. Relief that he was not in trouble flooded through him.
6     "I know that having a dog at school is a novelty for your classmates. I thought that we would have a special assembly before lunch so we could explain what Buster does and how they should act around him. I also wondered if you would be willing to tell us a little about him as well. I know this is short notice, so don't feel that you have to."
7     Jake's first impulse was to refuse. Jake didn't want to put himself on display as the center of attention. He looked down at his dog, and Buster looked up at him lovingly. Jake couldn't help but smile as he ran his hand over the dog's head and neck. Buster's story needed to be told.
8     "I don't mind speaking, Mr. Harmon," he said.
