    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.

    48: 讲故事 Storytelling

    "I'm sure you will," replied Molly. "You rescued me from those boys that time. Others would have just walked away, or at most they would call the police. But you stepped up - and became my bro!" Molly recalled, still impressed by Sean's quick thinking.

    "I guess I'm Superman and I didn't know it!" said Sean jokingly. "All I need is a red cape and a T-shirt with a big letter 'S'. Oh, that reminds me, did you bring my T-shirt?"

    "No. I didn't. I didn't know I would see you today. In fact I didn't even know you were in the hospital. I didn't know you got hurt."

    "So how did you get here? I mean, how did you find out I'm here?" asked Sean, puzzled.

    "Well... I was just walking down the street and I saw a long line of girls waiting with their cameras and pens and photographs of you," Molly answered with a mischievous look on her face, "so I asked them what it was all about. And they told me they were waiting in line to get an autograph from the hero who saved a girl."

    "Really?" asked Sean, believing that it was true.

    "Yes," realizing that she had Sean fooled, Molly continued with her tall story, "they were lining up just outside this hospital, so I came in and found you - but you were not awake yet, so I went out and told them to come back tomorrow."

    "How did they know about it? I mean, was I on the news?" asked Sean, still unaware of being the victim of Molly's storytelling ability.

    "Oh, yes, you're on TV. Every girl in town wants to get your autograph. In fact they all want to be your girlfriend. But don't worry, I told them you're already married," Molly continued weaving her story.
