    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.

    Hi, I am John Doe. I love stories. Even now, I still read stories all the time. Reading while listening to a story is an enjoyable way for you to learn new words and improve your English.

    46: 请求 Requests


    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.
