"Hi I am Sydney," Sydney said as enters the new apartment". As James leads him inside the two bedroom apartment he passes a small kitchen with a white table bench, the sitting room had a grey sofa and a large screen TV and a four sitter dinning table.
"How long have you lived here?"
"Two years now, after my wife died two years ago my children brought to his nice nursing home. It's a good place," James said as he showed him his bedroom and sat on the couch looking outside at the small golf course. "What brings you here?"
"Well, my wife died ten years ago, I stayed in my wonderful house with my daughter but she got a new job in New York and sent me here."
"You will meet many people here. At first, I did not want to come but when I did, I met new people and made new friends. I will introduce you to some people later on." James said as he watched Sydney put his clothes in the cupboard. "Hey, that is a nasty scar on your face what happened." James said looking at Sydney's scar that ran across his face..
"Oh, I am a retired cop. Best forty five years of my life. My late wife, a retired lawyer, we did many cases together. She retired at sixty and wanted to spend time with her grandkids. she was a huge help, to our kids. They saved money on day care. I retired five years ago." Sydney said sitting on the other couch. "Well twenty years ago, I was on a car chase, we were chasing two bank robbers our car flipped over. My partner and I were lucky enough to be saved by strangers. They removed us from the car before it blew up."
"I remember the Vast Bank robbery, quite a chase. There were many police cars chasing the bank robbers car That night, we were watching it live, three police cars had flipped over for various reasons one cop shot, and the other two injured. The bank robbers got caught after an hour. We knew the bank robbers would pass through intersection 68 and I remember one police car flipped over after taking a sharp corner. My friend Paul and I pulled them out before the car blew up and we helped the paramedics load the cops in the car. Placed my T-shirt on one cops face, bleeding from broken glass." James said remembering that night when he and Paul sat outside to see the bank robbers car pass them and remembered the police car flipping over.
"Hey, our car flipped over at intersection 68, you are the guys who saved me and Patrick," Sydney said looking at James.
"That was you wow. It was dark that night and your faces bruised and bleeding." James said feeling happy to meet the guy he had saved twenty years ago and the reason he became a doctor.
"Wow I wish Patrick was here. He would be happy to meet you and Paul. He always wondered who removed us out of the car. He succumbed to cancer a few years ago." Sydney said wiping a tear from his eyes as speaks to the man who saved his life.
"Hey, Paul stays in unit 12 with his wife, come he will be happy to met you." James said standing up and walking towards the door.
