    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.

    28:一个震惊的发现 A Shocking Discovery


    "What girl?" This question kept going round and round in Molly's mind and she could not quite concentrate on the patients she was visiting in the children's cancer ward. Finally she had to tell herself to just pray and leave it to God, just as she had so often heard her pastor say.

    "After all, I can't control Sean or what he thinks about me. Sometimes I can't even control myself," Molly thought to herself. After praying silently, she was able to focus on the children she was there to cheer up.

    Two hours were soon over. After hugging the children, Molly left the room together with Sara and went to return their white gowns. On their way, Molly told Sara about her encounter with Sean.

    "Should I go see him? I really don't feel like it," Molly asked Sara.

    "I know it's hard," looking at Molly understandingly, Sara replied, "but I think you should. He may need to be cheered up too."

    Molly thought about it, biting her fingernails. Then she took a deep breath and said, "Okay. I'll go see him."

    "I'll see you later then. Call me and let's talk," said Sara once they were in front of Sean's room. Molly nodded.

    When Molly pushed open the door, she noticed that the room was dimly lit. It also seemed barren. The flowers on the counter were gone. There was nothing on the rolling table at the foot of the bed. And there were not even the usual hums and beeps from the various ICU equipment.

    The room was empty. No Sean. No woman. Just an empty bed.

    "This can't be! No! No! No!" Molly wanted to scream. "All I did was just holding his hand. I didn't mean to... I just... I just wanted to..." Molly could not believe that Sean was gone. Forever.
