Title Cry in the Night
Description The husband assured the distraught girl that he could manage, that he would take care of her. Then, turning to the couple who had given them so much this miserable night, he said, "I will pay this bill. I'm sure you saved Jane tonight; and I will pay, however much it is, and no matter how long it takes. I will pay you!" "Still so much trouble ahead for this poor pair," the doctor thought., "No home, no money, sickness, a bitter cold morning following the miserable stormy nisht and still a 1on2 drive m a cold undependable liLLle car," His heart really acheu for them, yet what more could he do? They were determined to go on together, so what right did he have to even fight the idea? "There is just one more thing," he thought and then said. "Well, go if you must, but let's all just forget about any payment for anything that has been done here tonight- I don't need the dollars represented by what has been done as much as you do. So, just forget it. Go, and good luck. You deserve the luck and happiness you are looking for, and it will just make us happy to feel we have contributed to it." Smiles, real joy lit the two young faces. Humbled thanks, tears, bundling up, confusion, and they were gone. The weary young doctor and wife looked at one another and smiled, then watched as the car, isinglass curtains flapping in the crisp cold air, sputtered and coughed away. Then, methodically they proceeded to clean up a totally disordered living room. And in the process they found on the table near the sofa a small scribbled note of thanks, and folded in it was a small cheap ring, the girl's wedding ring. She seemed determined to pay what she could for the help she and her husband had received this night. The ring was put away, and George and his wife felt so sorry for the tiny sick girl, but admired her determination to pay her debts. "But, of course, as soon as we hear from them, we will send them the ring," 59
