It had been a busy morning at the office. I couldn’t wait to go out for some fresh air. As I was leaving, the phone rang. I answered it and thought I recognised the voice of the Accountant who’d been asking me out. He’d been quiet lately and I concluded that he’d lost interest. This was going to be a good day after all.
With my heart beating a little faster I smiled and said, “Hey, stranger…”
The voice cut in. “Ms Jackson your test results are back. You need to come to the surgery as soon as possible."
The doctor looked up as she walked into his office, “Ah, Ms Jackson, you’re here. Please take a seat.”
He pulled out an envelope from his drawer, opened his mouth to speak and hesitated.
“Why don’t you just tell me what it says?” she pleaded.
He pulled out a sheet of paper which he placed in front of her. The words jumped out at her, then she screamed, “I’ve made it into medical school!”
It was a tender moment as father and daughter hugged each other. It was a good day after all.
