After a moment of bewilderment, Molly put the money into her pocket, gathered her flowers, and headed for Sean's room, thinking, "Poor lady, she must have had a long day. When I see her next time, I should make sure that I apologize properly." With that she walked into Sean's room.
Sean's eyes were closed and nobody else was there. Molly borrowed a vase and put the flowers in. Then she stood next to his bed, looking at her hero. The past three weeks since her meeting him had been like a dream, a sweet dream. Even though her heart was broken when Sean didn't show up for dinner the night before, and then hearing him ask about a girl was hard to take, here being with him was enough to make up for all of that. Of course it would have even been better if Sean was well and awake, but he was getting better. Molly was quite certain of that. "Doesn't it say somewhere in the Bible that God gives us whatever we ask for?" As she thought about that, and looking at Sean with his head all wrapped up in bandages, she decided to pray for him, just to make sure.
"Dear God, I know I've not prayed to You that much. But please listen to me," standing by the window, Molly looked up to the sky and prayed. "I've this friend Sean... well, I don't know him that well, but he's a really nice guy - he even risked his life to save a little girl. I know I don't have to tell you that, You know what happened. But please help him get well soon. And if it's not too much to ask, please let me be his..."
"Who are you talking to?" a voice came from behind her.
