As Serena sought comfort and warmth in her bed on that cold Sunday morning, she remained unaware of the world surrounding her. Remaining so till ten, she caught up on the sleep she had been missing during the week. Slowly awakening, she gazed at the ceiling for a couple of minutes luxuriating in the warmth of her sheets. Rubbing her eyes and stretching her back she leisurely slipped out of her sheets and trekked to the bathroom to start her morning ritual. Refreshed and ready 15 minutes later she let her dog in the back door and tied a leash to his collar. Knowing what this meant he bounded for the front door with Serena chasing close behind.
Once outside, Serena tied him to her mailbox so she could stretch before she began her morning run. Suddenly, amidst her stretching, he began barking wildly at a dog across the street. Concerned about the racket her dog was making Serena went to calm him down but before she could reach him he broke free of his collar and darted into the street. In that split second a car came speeding down her block towards her dog and Serena froze. Without warning a blur streaked across the street and pushed her dog out of harms way. Stunned at the events unfolding before her Serena could only stare as the blur took the shape of a man. Smiling the man handed the leash back to Serena and said, “You’d better keep an eye on him.” Still astonished but starting to regain her senses Serena thanked him profusely before he turned about and headed across the street. As she watched him go she kept pondering how a man could move so quickly while riding in a wheelchair.
