He was having a blast feeling the wind blow through his hair as he weaved in and out on his roller blades and down an incline until… the wall rushed toward him too quickly to brace himself, and he took the impact in the face. Stunned, he quickly held his nose that was bleeding and picked himself up, holding back the urge to cry. No one realized, at that time, that he had broken his nose!
A few days later, after the swelling had subsided, it was evident that he needed a physician to examine it. After a series of tests, he was scheduled for a procedure to re-position the nose before it set permanently. In ten days, it will all be a faint memory and a story to tell his friends and descendants as a bedtime story.
