CHAPTER 23 : I WAKE UP IN THE NEWS
It seems the happiest celebration in the hospital the moment Chris wakes up from his coma.
Newt, too, is getting the attention that he has never experienced before.
He wants to be the first to talk to Chris but the shot given by the nurse earlier makes him fall into his sleep.
Newt wakes up in the next morning and finds himself at his own house .
Cecil and JJ are also in the house and they start talking about the media coverage that they get after the water tower incident.
On the other hand, Chris is nowhere to be seen in the house as he is attending a local television morning show.
The hostess and Chris talk excitedly about what had happened and at the end of the show, Chris shocks everyone who is watching.
Chris insists that the victory parade should be led by the real hero, Captain Nobody, instead of the winner of the Big Game.
That night, although Newt cannot get rid of the pain, he refuses to take the painkiller because he wants to wait for Chris instead of falling asleep.
When Chris arrives home, they set their eyes for good since the Big Game incident and miraculously, Newt can feel the pain fading away.
