    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.

    27:什麽女孩? What Girl?

    Hearing that Molly didn't work at the hospital, the woman quickly dropped her hand, rushed back out, and resumed her search for help. Molly turned around and started walking out of the room. But she suddenly stopped. The face of the patient lying on the bed caught the corner of her eyes.

    It looked like a face she had seen before; a face she had dreamed about; a face she had hoped to see smiling at her in the restaurant the night before.

    She turned around sharply to take a better look. Yes, it was Sean.

    As Molly slowly walked toward the bed, she had a thousand questions in her mind. The first one was: "What happened?" But she could tell that she probably wouldn't get an answer from the patient lying before her. Sean had his head wrapped in bandages; his eyes were closed, and his mouth was slightly opened.

    "Sean?" Molly called to him quietly, even though she didn't expect him to respond. Molly reached over and held Sean's hand with both her hands. As soon as she did that, the EKG machine next to the bed beeped even faster, with the green line on the display dancing wildly.

    "Sorry! Sorry!" Molly apologized under her breath and quickly released Sean's hand. She was scared that she had done Sean further harm. At that moment, Sean opened his eyes slightly and mumbled, "Is she okay - the girl?"

    The woman who had rushed out earlier came back in with a nurse. Molly stepped aside and made way for them. By that time, Sean had closed his eyes again. The nurse ushered both Molly and the woman outside as she started checking the instruments.

    Almost in a daze, Molly walked mechanically toward the children cancer ward, thinking, "Girl. What girl?"
