    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.

    36: 怒发冲冠 Boiling Anger

    Pearl stopped and stared at Edward. She was so angry that she could explode.

    "I don't need your stinking money!" she spat that out word by word through her teeth, and walked out without turning back.

    The journey home for the father and daughter was filled with silence except for the sighs of the father and his mumbling "my daughter,'ll be all over town."

    When they arrived home, Pearl went straight to bed without speaking a word. Her tears soaked her pillow but she did not let herself make any sound. She did not want to cry as if not crying would deprive Edward of his satisfaction. She lay in bed awake most of the night.

    "Stupid! Stupid! Stupid!" she thought to herself. "How could you be so stupid. He's from a rich family. Why would he love you? You're just a poor, ignorant, and worthless village girl. He just wanted to use your body - use it like a mop, like a rag. Use it and then throw it away."

    Hatred filled her heart.

    When morning came, Pearl was the first one to get up. She was ready to carry out her decision. "I won't be a disgrace to my family," she told herself, and quietly left the house before her parents were up. Through friends she had heard about this place where things could be taken care of quietly. It was in a town nearby. She was glad that it was a little distance away.

    As she sat at the bus-stop waiting for the bus, she thought about the whole thing again and how Edward had used her. Anger rose inside.

    "Hi, Pearl!" It was a young man's cheerful voice.

    "What?" Pearl barked.

    Startled, the man looked at Pearl. After a moment, he asked, "Are you okay?"
