Short story 3

Only Stars can tell
When I hurried into the hospital ward ,mother has already fell asleep .I came late here again.I take a chair and sit beside her bed .Mother is terribly ill of anemia duo to the hardship of life for those years .Looking at the ward ,almost everything is white ,horrible white ,white sheet ,white wall and most conspicuously a pale bloodless face.
Mother ,are you feeling tired ,I ask gently in my heart.Nobody responds ,only the bright stars in the remote sky were blinking continuously .It seems that they are telling me some stories about the past ,about the memories ,about mother.
The blood in the transfusional bottle is dripping ,one drop ,twe drops ¡­.
Seven oclock in the early morning in the winter and it was still dark outside .Wind was blowing strongly with some drizzle and it was freezing cold .In the empty street ,a young mother was walking hard agaist the bloody wind with her 5-year old child on their way to the kindergarten .Suddenly the young child negligently slipped up on the ground ,crying so loudly that the young mother immediately held him up and fingered his little hand with some vivid red blood .She touched the little hand softly and felt so distressed in her heart,The child was still crying ,making the young mother panic-stricken and at a loss what to do .Then ,she held him up closely in her arms and continued walking in the dark ,freezing cold street .That little child was me and undoubtedly the young mother was my deer mother.
The blood in the transfusional bottle is still dripping ,one drop ,twe drops ¡­.
In a distant place ,a middle-aged lady was pushing a bike forward toughly with a little girl sitting at the back seat of the bike.It was so hot that even the cicada on the trees were tired of singing .Sweat was dripping from her forehead to her cheek and neck.Please do not be amazed,the little girl was my younger sister,Amy, who was deaf at only 3-yaer old.How could she face her future life without listening to the wonderful world .No ,never.
Mother tried her best to cure my sister ,even if there was only a tiny percentage of success .
Persistently ,she carried her to the hospital which took 1hour to get there to receive therapy every Sunday ,no matter how cold it is in the wintter or how hot it is in the summer.Eventually,her hard work got rewards .When my sister opened her month and said ¡°mother¡±for the first time ,mother was sheding tears with a big ,satisfied and pround smile.
The blood in the transfusional bottle is still dripping ,one drop ,twe drops ¡­.
¡°Mother ,why don¡¯t you tell me to go with you to the suppermarket ?¡±I took over the big shopping basket in her hand and blamed.
¡°I know you have a lot of work to do as well ,¡±she was always caring about others ,except herself
¡°well ,it doesn¡¯t matter ,I have been used to that those years .Your father is coming back this weelend and I must cook something delicious for him .He must also be very tired these years of living in the military by himself.¡±After saying that ,there was a happy smile on her wrinkly face.
Mother ,are you feeling satisfied now :I have grown up and will go to the university next year ,Amy is an excellent student in the art school and father is coming back with his remarkable success in career .Mother ,all these outcomes belong to you ,my good exam results ,sister¡¯s prize in the national competition and father¡¯s military exploit badges.All of these are yours ,my deer mother.
Are you feeling happy and satisfied now ?I have no idea .
Only the stars are blinking in the remote sky.

story 2

Lily is a timid and gloomy girl ,it is nearly impossible to find any smiles on her face although she is only 16-year old , a cheerful age belongs to all kinds of wonderful things ,love friendship,happiness and confidence about the bright future.But it seems that all of these had been fading away from her since 2 years ago,her mother suddenly died of a traffic accident.Everything has changed from then on.,she became qiete and depressed .It seems that everything in her life is covered with black color.

This day ,she is walking on the compus towards the teaching building where she is going to have the evening self-study classes as usual.It is dark and cold ,wind is blowing strongly on her slender body ,made her tighten the coat unconsciously.Some vague but cheerful songs coming from the nearby residences ,she looked at those bright windows and the nice pictures through that:children are playing and singing with their parents happily.She smiled but with bitter.Ever,she also had that kind of experiences when mum was still alive .But after mum died ,father became very irritated and careless about her ,or even beat her up when he got drunk..
She turned her eyes off the peaceful and clolorful pictures ,heaving a sigh slightly.,feeling extremely longly and helpless today and expecting something unusual and unforgettable to happen .

But it is till a dull day ,just as usual,nothing special.Everyone has their own business and own friends .She yearns for friendship and love so much ,but she is too shy and not dared to talk with others and always hiding herself in the corner of the classroom..
She went into the classroom quitely and carefully ,lowering her head and holding several textbooks in front of her body

To her surpride that there is no one in the classroom where used to be busy situations i.e.chatting ,playing ,singing etc.She felt curious and demanded to know what had happened.£¢Maybe they all went out to attend a party and enjoy fun.she thinks .

However she just feel that something special would happen although she doesn¡¯t know what that is and why she may have such strange feelings .
She goes to her seat ,openthe books and begin to concentrate on study.
Suddenly ,all the lights go off,it is completely dark arround her .Scare is gradually approaching her heart ,making her could hardly breathe.what is going on .She wondered and demanded to get out of the room and look for the reason.But she just cannt move by herself.
Just when she decides to going out ,the rest of the class pop into the room with some of them holding a very big and well decorated chocolate birthday cake in their hands ,singing the song ¡°Happy birthday to you ¡°with their genuine and beautiful sound all the time.
She is so surpried that couldn¡¯t even believe this is true¡ªsuch kind of situation only happened in her dream and long long time ago.She is looking at those smiling and blessing faces,surrounding by all kindes of carefully prepared gifts ,and could be able to say nothing except thanks to all of them .
Now she feel herself like the real birthday princess and will no longer be the lonely pitiful victim but a happy and lucky girl because she knows that she is never forgotten by others ,instead ,friendship and love would enrich her injured soul forever and forever

shot story

Father¡¯s secret
Tears rolled from her eyes when she accidentally heard the conversation between her father and another young lady on the phone.

¡°hi,dear,how are you today ?¡±father said sweetly.
¡°en¡­are you at your home or the company?¡±
¡°ok ,I¡¯ll see you in the caf¨¦ bar as usual in 5 minutes¡¯ then.bye¡±

He hangup the phone and left the room immediately and silently.Obviously he didn¡¯t notice that his beloved daughter was just in the next room.

She suddenly felt so depressed bacause she is definitely sure that father was talking with some other woman and the relationship between them seems abnormal and intimate.
Did father fall in love with someone else ? She couldn¡¯t think properly and logically ¡°what can I do then ,telling mum ,no, never ,I don¡¯t want to make her sad ¡°After a few seconds she decided to seek for the answer by herself.Then without any delays ,she rushed out of the room and called a taxi ,following her father secretly.

After a few minutes father¡¯s car stopped at a flower shop which was the one he used to purchase roses for her mother.Is he going to buy some flowers for her now or someone else?She had completely no idea.After a while ,father came out with a big brunch of fresh roses .He went back into the car and continued diving.

At last,father¡¯s car parked at a caf¨¦ bar in the town centre,he went in with the beautiful flowers .She quickly got off the taxi and followed closely of her father into the caf¨¦ bar as well .She demanded to know who is the person father is going to see.

No surprise it ,just as what she had thought,it is a young pretty lady with curly blond hair.dark eyebrow,big and cheerful eyes and wearing a mini skirt.She looked so attractive and sexy.Father seemed very pleased meet her and gave her a big hug .
Oh my god ,what has happened ? Does father really fall in love with someone else ?No he could do that because he is her deerest ,most respectful and greatest father.She felt so disapointed and helpless that tears was sheding from her eyes and hurt her heart.She wondered to stop theie conversation and ask for everything but she just couldn¡¯t move.

After a while ,they went out together and came into a nearby new building ,the second floor ,room 2.She has no patience to wait anymore .She cannt allow father to do something that may hurt mom¡¯s heart .
Her father and the other was shocked when she suddenly pop into the room and father was even pazzled.
However ,to her surprise the new room was all decorated by the pictures drawn by mum ,all over the wall.
¡°Why you are here ,darling¡±father inquired amazedly.
¡°Who is she and what are you doing here dad?¡±there is anxiety on her face and full of angry and depress in her heart.

Father hesitated for a few seconds and he seemed understand everything.He smiled peacefully and said:
¡°Dear daughter,things are not going like you immaginated.This young lady is in charging of our house ,about all the designing and decorating details.She is your mum¡¯s friend as well and her name is Lisa.¡±

The lady ,named Lisa ,greeted and smiled to her

¡°Actually I bought this flat 6 months ago and planed to give your mum as her birthday gift this year,as her personal,special drawing office where she can feel peace and joy.In fact I was just about to show it to her this evening ,you see ,I also bought her favorite roses .I am coming here just for the final chek of the room.¡±

After heard of that ,she felt burst of relief because she knew that father is still her great and beloved father ,nothing has changed .There is no more tears on her face ,but a pround and gratified smile .
