"Wow, I guess my prayers have been answered," I said. "Or at least they would have been if it had occurred to me to pray for rain."
"Well, probably some other kid who hates sports thought of it," she said. She seemed to be kidding, but I wasn't sure.
An announcement came over the loudspeaker that because of the rain the games would be held in the main gymnasium. We were told to all meet back there and bring our scriptures.
"Well, if we have to bring our scriptures it's probably not going to be sports," I said, but I couldn't help but feel that that was a bad sign for what the activity might turn out to be.
So we went back to the dorms and grabbed our scriptures and put on our t-shirts, and then we went to the main gymnasium and found our team. I looked all around the room to see if I could spot Bill.
"I still can't find Bill," I said to Amy.
"Yeah, I haven't seen him since last night," she said.
"I wonder which team he's on," I said, looking around some more.
Amy looked a little surprised by this. "But, he's on our team," she said. "Don't you remember him introducing himself yesterday?"
"Really? He's on our team?" I asked. "Wow, I must not have been paying very close attention! I didn't notice him at all."
"I think that that guy's his roommate," Amy said pointing to one of the other guys on our team. "Maybe he knows what became of him."
So we went over and asked the roommate if he knew where Bill was.
"Oh, he had to go home early," the guy said. "He had a really bad asthma attack this morning."
