Title Cry in the Night
Description George glanced at the clock- It was nearly midnight and the storm was getting worse• Xt seemed unusually severe for so early in November, "Why does this storm upset me?" George wondered. AftGr all s eve re wi_n t er s t orms are to be e xpe ctG d in Utah, even in early November," But, in place of going to bed as he usually did at this time of night, George decided to read just one more chapter. In the back of George's mind, he knew his concern was caused by the possibility that he might . have to go out in the storm. He was a young doctor, and he had enough experience with his relatively new car in the early 1900s to know that even with the < crank he would never be able to start it on such a night, And there were several babies due in the coming weeks, and babies seemed to come at the most inopportune times. "Well, why borrow trouble?" George mumbled to himself, "I'm sure the car won't start, so maybe I should not even try it. It would be quicker to just walk. That little car is wonderful, sometimes, but maybe I should have kept my horse for such nights»" George read on. He enjoyed reading, but tonight these other thoughts kept intruding, "It's the wind, and the sleet against the window, I guess." He turned pages as he remained in his comfortable chair, half worrying, half reading, and always listening and hoping the storm would abate. The sound of the doorbell shattered the comfort of the room, and with a sinking feeling George moved quickly to the door. When he opened it, he was greeted by an unkempt, distraught young man who began to speak before the door was quite open, "Are you the doctor?" "Yes> "Heyl I'm in trouble! Big trouble! Will you help me?" "Why, yes, if I can. What kind of trouble are you in? What's the big problem?" George's mind and imagination were racing, "Was this man in need of money? Was this a hold-up? Was he trying to evade the law?" 56
