The Back Story

One day Neo was sick. We took him to the hospital that we usually visit, but he was in too much pain and wouldn’t let us or the vet touch him. The vet gave us some pain killers for Neo and said to wait a couple of days and see how he was.  The very next day Neo was puking blood. The vet told us to go to a bigger hospital, which was 3 hours away on the other side of the city (Seoul). At that time, Josh was working in a different city and had to come up to Seoul (Where Neo and Mina were staying). When Josh got to Seoul, he wanted to hurry to the hospital. Mina told Josh he had better not rush and take some time with Neo. Mina had horrible experiences from the past when visiting the vet.  Every time she visited the vet with a very sick animal, she always returned alone without her pet. We were scared to get to the hospital and have them tell us that we needed to say goodbye to him.
While we were driving to the hospital, Neo was in Mina’s arms. She was crying and wishing that Neo could tell us what the problem was. She said she wanted to go inside of Neo and heal him herself. Then she said, that’s the story we have to make. Mina thought that if we could heal him with the story, then perhaps Neo might get better. That was our wish and prayer. While we were in the waiting room, we came up with our first draft of the story…
