    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.

    31: 淡紫色的遐想 Lavender Thoughts

    As Molly rode the elevator upstairs, she looked at her flowers. They were lavender flowers. She liked them. They looked nice and they smelled good. Besides, she had heard the color meant love at first sight. As she thought about that, smelling the little flowers, a smile floated up from her heart to her face.

    "Lavender and white," thought Molly, "they will be the colors of my wedding. The whole church will be decorated with lavender flowers; the pews, the altar, the front doors, everything. And the flower girl can throw lavender rose petals on the carpet as she walks in before me. And my bridesmaids can all wear light lavender dresses. Hmm... Should I ask Sara or Janet to be my maid of honor?"

    Janet was her cousin. They had grown up playing together when their families lived across the street from one another. Being just three months apart in age, they were very close. There was no secret between them, and they had a lot of good memories together. One time when Molly was five years old, she was disciplined by her father for drawing on his office documents. She was so unhappy that she decided to run away from home. She told Janet, crying. Janet cried too. They ran away together - to the tree house in Janet's backyard, with their little pink backpacks. Those were fond memories. However, since Molly moved away with her family, they had not kept up with each other as well. They were still very close, just not as close as before.

    "Maybe I can choose whoever looks best in lavender," thought Molly. Another random idea came to her as she looked at the flowers in her hands. "Can they paint the whole church purple just for my wedding? Hmm... Pastor may not like that."
