Arthur fainted after hearing that kind of news. He stayed like that until Hannah and Tim came over for dinner. They were having Chinese takeout for dinner, so she and Tim offered to bring it with them. Hannah rang the doorbell, but there was no answer.
"There is someone home, Tim. I see Arnold, but the TV is on," Hannah said, getting worried.
"Don't you have a separate key to the house?" Tim asked.
"Yes. I have it right here," she said, getting the key out.
She let themselves into the house.
"Hi, Hannah," Arnold said.
"Hi, Arnold. Where's Dad?" Hannah asked.
"Right there," he said, nodding to the floor where the couch was.
"What happened?" she asked, seeing where Arthur hit his head.
He hit his head on the TV set.
"Dad fainted because he found out something about you that you haven't told us about. He found out about it on TV," Arnold said.
"What was the news?" Hannah asked.
"You know. It was talking about you two being engaged or married," Arnold said.
"What! That's not true on either, Arnold. We're just boyfriend and girlfriend for now," Hannah told her brother.
"I'm not sure Dad believes it," Arnold said.
Hannah splashed water on Arthur to wake him up. It did. He saw Hannah and her boyfriend.
She made the introductions as they put Arthur back in his wheelchair.
"How did it go with the doctor today with Arnold, Dad?" Hannah asked.
"It went really well, Hannah. The doctor said he could start walking again in a couple of days or so. I don't want him driving again since that accident years ago."
"Where's Uncle Henry?" Hannah asked as they started eating dinner.
"Henry had rehearsal for that action show, but he said he was sorry to miss you, Hannah, but that news I heard on TV they were talking about you?" Arthur asked.
"It's false, Dad. We're not engaged or married. We're just boyfriend and girlfriend for now."
"Good. Glad to hear it."
Tim stayed for a few hours longer when dinner was over so he could get to know Arthur and Arnold better.
"What kind of work do you do, Tim?" Arthur asked.
"I am a bus driver, Mr. Webber," Tim said.
"I bet you make good money," Arthur said.
"The money isn't bad," Tim said.
"Hannah and Arnold are twins," Arthur said.
"Really? Hannah didn't tell me that," Tim said, looking at Hannah.
They kept talking the couple hours Tim was over at the house. Henry walked in when Tim was getting ready to leave.
"Uncle Henry, I want you to meet someone," Hannah said.
Tim already knew who Henry was because he had watched the action show on television.
"You're the Henry Webber I've watched on TV, right?" Tim asked.
"Yes. Acting is my business," Henry told him.
"He was one of the popular kids in high school," Arthur said.
"How did you get that kind of acting talent, Mr. Webber?" Tim asked Henry.
"I acted in the school plays at the high school we went to. That's how I got the talent," Henry said.
"Uncle Henry, this is my boyfriend, Tim Mason," Hannah said.
"It's nice to meet you, Mr. Mason," Henry said.
"You too, Mr. Webber," Tim said.
"You already knew who I am without her introducing me, so that's good enough for introductions."
Tim and Hannah said good - bye and he went to his car and drove away.
"How did it go tonight, Henry?" Arthur asked.
"Not so good. They didn't want me in that episode. They said my time is up in that show. I can't be in it anymore," Henry said, disappointed.
"That's too bad. At least you still have General Hospital," Arthur said.
"I know. I loved doing that action show. I want to do another show as well," Henry said.
"Can you sing like Dad does?" Arthur asked.
"That's a good idea, Dad! Maybe Uncle Henry can do a new career," Hannah said, liking the idea.
"Not country music, but you know I can sing in church."
The next day Henry and his boss at General Hospital were talking. The boss told him he was finished with the show, so he had to leave. Henry didn't mind because he had hated General Hospital. He said good - bye to the staff he worked with and left. He thought of all the time he would have off.
Henry decided to invite Arnold over for dinner one night and thought it was a good idea because Hannah was out in Boston. Arnold answered the phone when he heard Henry on the other end.
"Hi, Uncle Henry," he said.
"Arnold, what are your plans for tonight? Your father and I would like to have you over for dinner," Henry said.
"I don't have anything going on, but I guess I'd be happy to come. What time is it?" Arnold asked.
Henry told him six o'clock.
"Okay," Arnold said as they got off the phone.
Henry found Arthur upstairs in his bedroom with his TV set on.
"Arthur, I called Arnold. He is coming for dinner tonight at six," Henry said.
"Okay," he said and went back to listening to his TV program.
"What show is on?" Henry asked, getting interested.
Henry heard the Joker's voice laugh when he left his brother's bedroom. He remembered Arthur had the TV for the blind since they were in the sixth grade.
There was a commercial break and when the commercials were over, Arthur flipped the TV off, and headed for his typewriter and decided to do some reading for a while.
Arthur was reading a book he had just started and wanted to find out what was going on, so he decided to pick up where he left off. He stayed at the typewriter until it was time for dinner. Henry found Arthur at the typewriter, reading his book when he came back from the gym around 5:15 that afternoon.
"Hi, Arthur. How long have you been at the typewriter?" Henry asked.
"Since Batman was over."
"Oh. Almost two hours ago, huh? That's how long I was gone, right?" Henry asked.
"Should we start making dinner now? Arnold's coming," Henry said.
"Let me go to the bathroom first," Arthur said.
Henry wheeled Arthur to the bathroom.
Henry closed the bathroom door behind them. They made it to the bathroom and Henry carried Arthur to the toilet. While waiting, he checked the messages on his cell phone. Henry came back into the bathroom when Arthur was finished and carried him into the wheelchair again and helped Arthur was his hands and then they headed for the kitchen to make supper for that night's meal.
Note: I hope I'm not confusing anybody but I have Hannah in Boston after she introduced her boyfriend in the first section of this story and then she went back home to Boston after that so I hope I explained in this author's note to make it more clear to those who are confused. I hope you all like it so far. Enjoy!
