"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.
