    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.

    32: 一个母亲的漫漫长夜 A Mother's Long Night

    Sean had been in and out of consciousness since he arrived at the hospital. After some CT and MRI scans, the doctors determined that even though there was some swelling in his brain, they would wait and see if his condition would improve. Sean's mother, the lady who mistook Molly for a nurse, had been with her son practically from the moment she stepped into the hospital after she learned of the accident. She was worried and upset. Why did it have to happen to her son? It seemed not too long ago that she had been in the hospital for her husband's stroke and subsequent surgery. Now it was Sean.

    When the machines started beeping and making alarming noises, she had been sitting in a chair next to Sean, resting, exhausted from the night's ordeal and a whole week of working two jobs. Fortunately after the nurse - the real one - looked at Sean and consulted the doctor, she gave Sean some medication that seemed to help. "He should be okay. Don't worry too much," said the nurse. "He's stabilizing and we're moving him to another room. He'll be all right."

    Sean's mother went alongside as they moved him. After Sean was settled in, the nurse came again and urged her to get some rest. "You look very tired. You really should get some sleep. You've been up all night," said the nurse.

    "Will he be okay?" asked Sean's mother, wanting some reassurance.

    "He's stabilizing. The swelling seems to be going down," replied the nurse.

    "Will you call me immediately if anything happens?"

    "Yes, ma'am, I will. I promise," said the nurse earnestly.

    Taking the nurse's advice, Sean's mother decided to go home. After all she needed to tend to her husband. Besides, she was not that fond of hospitals. They brought back bad memories.
