    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.

    29:得到答案 Getting Answers

    Molly sat down numbly. Tears streamed down her cheeks. Her thoughts went back to her rescue " Sean had been there just when she had needed him. She recalled the walk home with him afterwards. She had felt so safe with him. And she had admired his knowledge and intelligence. But now he was gone.

    "Had I not held his hand, he would still be alive. He saved me, but I killed him in return," Molly thought with a deep sense of remorse. Needing to talk to someone, she called Sara on the phone.

    "I killed him," Molly said as soon as Sara answered.

    "Molly?" Sara was puzzled.

    "I killed him," Molly repeated tearfully.

    "Who did you kill?"

    "I killed Sean."

    "Wait! Stop there!" Sara said. "Start from the beginning."

    "Okay, Molly, calm down first," said Sara, who was always the cool-headed one. "Don't jump to conclusions. Go and talk to a doctor or nurse first."

    "All right," Molly agreed, wiping the tears from her face.

    She found a nurse at the nursing station. "Hi! I'm looking for Sean" the patient in the room halfway down this hallway," she said, pointing toward Sean's room.

    "Sean... Oh, the guy that saved the little girl. He's been moved."

    "Oh! He's been moved?" Molly echoed.

    "Yes, he's in room 202 now."

    "Thank you!" Molly said with relief. She started off toward the room but turned and asked, "Did you say he saved a girl?"

    "Yes. You know - that train accident last night? It was on the news."

    Molly shook her head at first, but then it dawned on her.

    "Oh, the train accident!" Molly recalled the scenes at the train station the night before. "So what happened?"

    The nurse told Molly about the accident and added, "He saved her life. She only had some scratches."
