CONNIE is having trouble with her knee. Her knee hurts, and she walks with a limp. Her doctor tells her, "You need surgery on your knee." So Connie has surgery.
After the surgery, Connie's knee feels better. It doesn't hurt. But she still walks with a limp. Connie goes to many doctors. "Please help me," Connie says. "I don't want to walk with a limp." But the doctors can't help Connie. She still walks with a limp.
One morning Connie is walking to work when she sees something big and brown. What is it? Is it an animal? Yes, it is! It is a bear, and it is running toward Connie.
Connie lives in Alaska. In Alaska, bears come into the city sometimes. The bears are dangerous. They can kill people.
Connie runs toward a building, and the bear runs after her. The bear runs fast, and Connie runs fast, too; she doesn't think about her knee. Connie runs into the building and closes the door. The bear stands outside and growls.
Connie walks to a phone to call the police. She does not walk with a limp.
Connie never walks with a limp again, and she never has another problem with her knee. Connie went to many doctors, but the bear was the best doctor!
