This is an alternative ending to a book called, ” The Crossover.” In fact, it is also one of the books that I enjoy reading. Below you will find the alternative ending to the book I wrote.
Along the way to the basketball game inside the car, everyone was quiet as a statue. Finally, Josh and JB arrived the court to play their last game of the season. While Josh and JB were late to their basketball game, Mr. and Mrs. Bell were heading to the bleachers. Josh and JB went straight to the bench and got ready to join the warm-up with their teammates. Coach yelled from five seats away, “You two are late again! Get ready to warm up!” Josh replied, “Yes coach!” Since the incident happened between JB and Josh, JB hadn’t spoken a word to Josh even though his mom tries to persuade JB that it was just an incident, but JB isn’t the amenable person. Training was over, everyone gathered up in front of the coach, and as coach delivering speeches to everyone, Josh always looks at JB, and his eyes were spelling the word, “sorry” but JB didn’t even give a glance back at Josh.
Everyone was ready for the game, except Josh and JB because they still got their head in their dad’s situation. Before the game started, Josh looked at the bleachers for his parents and unfortunately, he couldn’t locate them anywhere around the bleachers. Josh kept looking at each of the exits, and he caught his parents going through one of the doorways. “Josh! Put your head in the game!” Coach yelled. The team was going to the court, but coach stopped Josh and gave him a private speech, “Josh, put your head in the game man, we’re going to lose if you and your twin are not communicating.” Josh nodded with a worried look. Josh joined the team and gathered everyone including his brother.

The clock buzzed, the third quarter was done, they’re down to 46 and 38, coach gathered everyone. Josh was still thinking about his parent. Surprisingly, JB came in and asked Josh, “What’s going to happen to dad?” Josh worriedly reply, “Not sure bro, let’s hope our dad is okay.” The ref whistled, and everyone backed in the court,

After the game, Josh and JB rushed through the exit and ran to the hospital for a 100m nearby the school, and quickly asking people for the emergency room and dashed through the door to the emergency room. There they found their mom waiting outside the room.
With the twins praying for their dad and holding their mom’s hands from both sides. After 10 minutes, a doctor came out with a small smile on her face. “His condition is better right now, but further treatment is needed.”
A month later, Mr. Chuck Bell recovered, and even though he now has no problem with patella tendonitis, he chooses to be a basketball coach for the Wildcat and a coaching consultant. As always, after school, before dinner, the boys and Mr. Bell would go to the park and practice basketball.
