Mom knows best

"Are you sure you should go to school?"
"Yeah mom my knee just hurts no biggie"
"You are limping down the steps!"
"So just prepares me for school"
"I really don't think you should go if it is this bad"
I stopped on the third from final step and turned looking up the stairs at her on the second floor landing. I kept myself from saying ow aloud.
"Mom its ok I am tough"
"You can cause your self more harm"
"Mom I am not staying home-"
Suddenly my right knee gave out from under me and i flew forward. I threw my let arm out grabbing the banister, stopping myself from falling.
"Oh that is it! Your going to the doctor...TODAY"
"But moooommm....fine"
