He has pitch black hair and deep, blue eyes, he is 5'11, and is 15 years old. Now he looks a lot different after what had happened the year before. He had just learned to walk again on his own. He had been in a dirt biking accident at the dirt biking park that was in town. He and his friend were riding their dirt bikes last year. While he and a friend were racing, his friend hit a lump on the ground, which caused him to lose control of his bike and he hit him. He went flying in the air and when he came back down, he came down with a thud. When he hit the ground, he was unconscious, and you could barely hear his breathing.

When the ambulance arrived, they loaded him onto a gurney and put him in the back. They took him to the hospital as fast as they could. As soon as the ambulance left, his friends got in their car and started following them. As they were following the ambulance, they called my parents.

Right after, they told us they called up all of our relatives and told them about what the doctor had said about Blake. When Blake got back in the room, he looked worse than he had ever looked before. He looked so weak and tired, his bruises and cuts looked worse than they had the first day. The nurses had to keep a close eye on him throughout every
