    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.

    30:解开疑团 Dark Cloud Lifted

    After hearing from the nurse about Sean's saving a girl, Molly remembered his question. "That was the girl he was asking about -- a little girl," Molly thought.

    "So she's okay?" Molly asked the nurse.

    "Oh, yeah. She was brought in here and the doctors checked her out. She was released last night," replied the nurse.

    This new piece of information lifted the dark cloud from Molly's heart. She realized that Sean was not asking about a girlfriend or girl that was with him. He was asking about the girl whom he dove in front of a train to save. "He is so wonderful!" Molly was completely taken by Sean's heroic act and concern for others. "Oh! I can't go in empty-handed like this. I need to get him some flowers," thought Molly. She turned around and headed downstairs for the hospital shop.

    "Will this be all for you, sir?" taking the can of drink from the man at the head of the line in front of Molly, the storekeeper asked.

    "That'll do," replied the man. While waiting for his change, the man noticed the big bouquet of flowers Molly was holding. "Nice flowers!" he remarked to Molly.

    "Aren't they beautiful?" Molly smiled and agreed."They're for a hero!" Molly added, almost dreamily.

    "Oh!" the man smiled back with glee. After a pause, he asked,"For Sean?"

    "Yeah! Do you know him?"

    "Yes, I was just visiting him. I'm his colleague," said the man."My name is Ben," extending his hand, he introduced himself.

    "I'm Molly. Nice to meet you," Molly shook Ben's hand and said.

    "Nice to meet you too. So, are you his friend?" asked Ben tentatively.

    "Yes," answered Molly with pride."In fact we were going to have dinner last night."

    After a little more chitchat, they parted ways.
