    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.

    40: 贝西的店 Betsy's Place

    Some mumbling accompanied the footsteps on the other side of the door. "So early... people nowadays..." Then the peephole on the door darkened.

    "Who is it?" the woman's voice behind the door asked in an obvious tone of annoyance.

    "I'm here to see Betsy," replied Pearl, unsure if it was the right place since it looked just like any other residence from the outside. But then she wouldn't expect it to look different. After all, it was not exactly a business that needed attention from the authorities.

    "Who sent you?" asked the voice on the other side.

    "I... I... came myself," unsure what the woman meant, Pearl replied.

    "No, I mean, who told you about Betsy?"

    "Oh... eh... Elvie did."

    After a pause, followed by sounds of unlocking and sliding of bolts, the door opened. The woman looked at Pearl's face and then at her belly. Then she poked her head outside the door and looked both ways. Certain that nobody was hiding outside, she motioned with her head for Pearl to go in. After Pearl stepped in, the woman locked the two locks and slid the two bolts back into place.

    The living room looked like an ordinary living room in a home. There were no plaques and things hanging on the wall like in a clinic.

    "It's one hundred dollars," holding out her hand, the woman said as soon as she turned back around.

    Pearl fished out her purse and handed over the amount, leaving almost nothing in her purse.

    Suddenly the woman reached over and felt Pearl's belly with her hand before Pearl had any time to react.

    "Wait here," satisfied that it was a real belly, the woman commanded. Then she went down the dark hallway leading to the back of the flat.

    Pearl sat down on a chair facing the hallway and waited.
