    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.

    44: 看不见的伤痕 A Hidden Scar

    "What is love?" After twenty-five years, Pearl had somewhat concluded that love was just a mask people put on to get what they wanted for themselves. Edward did that, and she had seen many others do that. After a while she also learned how to do that herself, even though she did it unknowingly. She decided that one must first look out for oneself because nobody else would. "Be good to them if they are good to you." That was what she lived by nowadays. That was also what she tried to teach Sean. However, deep inside she wondered if that was the way to live. She did take care of her problem with the unexpected baby, but she regretted it ever since. It left a deep scar on her heart. "What could I have done?" Pearl asked herself that many times but had no answer. After a while she just decided not to think about it - even though that was not totally possible. Here at the hospital, she couldn't help but to think about what happened so long ago.

    Reassured by the nurse that Sean would be okay, Pearl quickened her steps to get out of the hospital to go home and cook for her husband.

    "What should I cook for dinner? Something quick and easy so that I can come back right away after dinner," thought Pearl as she stood in front of the elevator doors waiting for the elevator to arrive.

    Meanwhile inside the elevator going up to Sean's floor, Molly, with the lavender flowers in her hands, was lost in her fantasy world of her lavender and white wedding, imagining what the church would look like painted in purple.

    "I'm in love!" Molly thought to herself with a big smile on her face, ready to dance out of the elevator into Sean's room.
