    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.

    43: 亲密的偶遇 Close Encounter

    "Where am I?" asked Pearl.

    "You're in our church," replied the woman. "I'm Samantha."

    Looking out the window, across the street Pearl could see a nightclub and an alley - where she had been earlier.

    "Would you like to stay for dinner?" asked Samantha.

    "Dinner?" Pearl thought. "It's too early."

    "You slept for a few hours," said Samantha, in response to Pearl's puzzled look. "The doctor said your bleeding had stopped and you just needed to rest."

    Pearl recalled vaguely seeing a doctor examine her. She had thought it was a dream. She looked down at her dress. The red patch of blood was gone: it was not the same dress she had on.

    "Oh, I changed it for you," explained Samantha. "I've washed it. I hope you don't mind. It's drying now."

    "Thank you," replied Pearl gratefully. Going home in a bloody dress was not something she wanted to do.

    Dinner was not a big feast, but it was one of the best Pearl had. It was not because of the food. It was the people. Another woman had joined them for dinner. Like big sisters that Pearl didn't have, they listened to her as she told them about the ordeal. At first Pearl was not saying much. But their kindness and obvious concern for her welfare were disarming. Bit by bit she told them. They mainly just listened, nodding and feeling her pain. It felt like talking to two closest friends.

    After dinner, Pearl changed back into her own dress and the two women walked with her to the bus station.

    Pearl sat by the window on the bus and as it passed by the church, she noticed the sign outside. It said something about love. Her thoughts went to Edward. "What is love?" thought Pearl.
