    Short Stories2

    Molly was unusually quiet at church on the Sunday after the dinner disappointment with Sean. When Sara saw Molly after the worship service, she knew the dinner with Sean didn't go well. All of Molly's other friends sensed that something was wrong as well.

    "Are you okay?" one asked.

    Before Molly could reply, Sara answered, "She's a bit under the weather." She put an arm around Molly and pulled her aside.

    "The dinner with Sean didn't go well, huh?" asked Sara quietly.

    Molly looked at Sara - a true friend who knew her so well and who was always by her side when she needed her - and shook her head, biting her lip to keep the tears in.

    "I'm so sorry!" Sara gave Molly a big hug. "Do you want to talk about it?"

    "Maybe later."

    "Okay. Do you still want to go visit the hospital today?" asked Sara, referring to their monthly visit, as volunteers, to the children cancer ward planned for that afternoon.

    Molly took a deep breath and said, "I don't really feel like going, but one of the boys will be operated on today, and I told him I would go see him before he went in. I've got to go."

    "Okay," Sara looked at Molly and nodded.

    When they got to the hospital, Molly and Sara each put on a white gown and surgical mask as required by the hospital. Sara needed to go to the restroom, so Molly went on ahead. Just as she was passing in front of a room in the Intensive Care Unit, a woman rushed out.

    "Excuse me. Come take a look. His heart is racing!" the woman grabbed Molly by the hand and half dragged her in.

    "Sorry, I... I don't work here," Molly tried to explain.

    45: 错脚 The Wrong Foot

    As soon as the elevator doors opened, Molly stepped out, or rather, bounced out with her flowers. Then came a yell and noises of coins and keys falling on the floor. In her excitement to see Sean, she almost knocked down the woman waiting outside the elevator. Fortunately only the woman's purse was knocked to the floor with its content spilled out and rolling in different directions. But unfortunately a pair of glasses also fell out which Molly stepped on before she could stop.

    "I'm so sorry!" Molly quickly apologized and bent down to help the woman pick things up. "I'm so sorry!"

    The woman stared at Molly. Brownish hair with green streaks, Molly did not look like a typical nurse to her despite the white gown she was wearing.

    "How can you be so careless? Nurses should be more careful!" said the woman. "Nurses nowadays."

    At that moment Molly recognized the woman. She was the same woman in Sean's room earlier. Molly wanted to introduce herself, but it just didn't seem like a good time for that.

    "I'm sorry," apologized Molly once more. "Can I pay for your glasses?"

    "Do you think money can pay for everything?" in her moment of annoyance, Pearl blurted out what was in her mind.

    Molly didn't know how to respond to that, but really wanting to pay for the woman's losses, she pulled out some large banknotes and dropped them into Pearl's purse. This made Pearl really angry, who quickly fished them out and threw them to the floor. Molly was shocked, wondering what she had done that made the woman so angry.

    "I'm sorry," Molly apologized yet one more time and picked up the money.

    Pearl got up and walked into another elevator that just arrived, leaving Molly holding the money.
