This reveals how Sheila is constantly on his mind, and that going out with her is one of his primary goals. He is, in the very sense of the word, lovesick. The final reason the protagonist may choose Sheila is that he hides his love of fishing for her. The second that she says she thinks fishing is dumb, he goes about covering his rod and gear, saying that he “would have given anything to not appear dumb in Sheila’s severe and unforgiving eyes” (Wetherell 3).

They referred me to the UK hospital that night. I hugged my many sibling goodbye as we all tried to hold back tears. That was one of the few times I actually realized what I was getting into was serious.The hour drive was filled with fear of what was wrong and shock that there was something wrong. Taken into the ER, I was constantly being questioned by groups of students and doctors that would enter my room. No one had any answers, only questions and hypotheses.
