    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.

    39: 觅路 Finding the Way

    After getting off the bus, Pearl went into a store to ask for directions.

    "Can you tell me how to get to Peace Avenue?" said Pearl.

    The shopkeeper, probably the owner of the store, was an older lady in her sixties. She looked at Pearl, then glanced at her belly, and said, "Go straight along this road, then when you see the pawn shop, turn right. The first cross street will be Peace Avenue." After another glance at Pearl's belly, she asked, "Looking for Betsy?"

    Pearl was surprised by that question. She had thought Betsy's to be a secret place. "Yes," she replied quietly with averted eyes.

    "Then turn right at Peace Avenue. You'll see a church on the left and a nightclub on the right. There's an alley next to the nightclub. Go down the alley and go to the fourth door. Betsy's place is on the fourth floor," the lady gave Pearl detailed directions. She seemed to have given those directions many times.

    With a quick 'thank you', Pearl hurried off.

    The directions were easy to follow. Pearl got to Peace Avenue, turned right, and soon saw the big church on the left. Built with big pieces of white stones, the church was quite beautiful. The bell tower had just started to ring. It was a tune that sounded very good which she did not recognize. But she was not there to listen to a song. She looked to her right and saw the nightclub. A man stumbled out the door, obviously drunk. Pearl went into the alley next to it. After going through the fourth doorway, she went up to the fourth floor.

    She knocked on the door. No reply. She knocked on it some more. Still no reply. It was only after the fourth time that she heard some footsteps inside.
