Today, however, was different. When he turned the TV on to the news, he was stunned when he recognized the names on the bottom headline: ‘Dr. Stone Saves Girl’.
“...seven year old Amelia Temple was caught in a house fire two weeks ago and suffered several third degree burns all over her body,” the news anchor was saying, her tone fluctuating up and down in a practiced manner. “However thanks to a local surgeon and some new technology it seems that everything was able to turn out okay.”
The video cut from the news anchor to a little girl standing next to a woman who was kneeling down to her, holding a microphone to her. The skin on one side of the girl’s face was a slightly different color from that of the rest of her body, but it didn’t seem to have any debilitating effects. “I feel really good,” she said with a smile.
