Mary was my good friend. We were in the same university. We were in the same class. We lived in the same dormitory. She was my best friend. She was my secret friend. She told me all her secrets. I told her all my secrets.
One day,Mary said to me, "Grace,I fell in love with a young man." His name is Charlie. He is very homesome." I asked, "Where did you meet him?" Mary answered, "I met him in my dream!" I was speechless. Mary always behaved strangely.
Several days later, Mary said to me again, "Grace,I met Charlie every night in my dreams. We chatted in the park. We went to the cinema. We had meals together. We had many happy times."
I said, "Mary,you need a boy friend in life. Many boys like you. You'd better choose one from them. Don't always refuse them." Mary did not listen to me.
Then one day, Mary said to me, "Grace,I met Charlie again last night. He asked me to meet him at the park today. He asked me to meet him at 12 o'clock. I want to meet him very much. But I am a little bit afraid. You are my best friend. You must go with me."
I said, "Mary,you are crazy. A dream is a dream. Charlie can never come out of the dreams. He does not exist at all."
But Mary did not listen to me. She said, "He must exist. If he comes, I can recognise him. He has a red lentigo on the chin. Please,please go with me." She begged me to go with her. She begged me again and again.
I said, "Well,I will go with you. But If he is not there, you forget him forever, and find a boy friend. OK?
Mary was very happy. She agreeed with me. We got to the park. We waited at the gate. I looked at my watch. It was 3 to 12. Then Mary said, "Grace,I am very thirsty. You wait here. I will go and buy something to drink."
There was a grocery on the other side of the street. Mary began to cross the street. She was in middle of the street. Suddenly an ambulance came fast. The ambulace hit Mary strongly.
Mary's body flew into the air. Then she fell on the road heavily. She was deadly injured.
I ran to her. She held my hand. She said in a weak voice, "Grace,I want to see him."
The driver,the doctor , the nurse and me carried Mary onto the ambulance. To my surprise,a young man was lying there. He had a red lentigo on the chin! He was Charlie!
Mary and Charlie saw each other. They stared at each other. They called each other's name in very very weak voices.
We lay Mary beside Charlie. They were hand in hand. I looked at my watch. It was 12 o'clock. They died. They died with happy smiles on their faces.
Charlie was a student in another university. As their school friends, we held a wedding ceremony and a funeral together for them. They were buried together. They continued their love in another world. THE END
