    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.

    37: 肯特 Kent

    Pearl turned her head slightly and saw that it was Kent, the boy working at the auto repair shop across the street from the bus stop. Even though Kent was about her age, he had already been working for a few years. His family was quite poor and needed his income to make ends meet. Being very good with mechanical things and a hard-worker, he was well trusted by the owner. This morning he had the responsibility of opening up the shop.

    "Yes, I'm doing great!"without looking at Kent, Pearl replied with spite.

    Kent stood there and did not quite know what to think. Judging from Pearl's face, he could tell that she was not happy. Yet her reply was the opposite. He had never seen her this way before.

    "Are you sure you're okay? Would you like a glass of wa..."after a pause, Kent asked, trying to be helpful by offering some water.

    "I told you I'm doing great. Just leave me alone!"Pearl barked again.

    "Okay, okay!" Kent retreated, not wanting to fan any flame. "If you need any help, just let me know. I'm right across the street."With that he walked across the street toward the shop.

    Kent had spoken to Pearl many times before. She was usually civil even though she might not have been overly welcoming. But he still liked her. In fact he had thought many times about asking her out but just never had the courage to. After all she was one of the prettiest girls he had known.

    The bus finally came. Since it was so early in the morning, Pearl was the only passenger. She sat in the corner on the back row, as far away as possible from the bus-driver and anyone else who might get on. She did not want to talk to anyone.
