At the last second, He saw Emily running towards the car, purse in hand. “Wait,” Danny shouted anxiously to his father. But, he was too late. Emily leapt into the backseat of the car next to Danny’s. With the car rolling away, Danny lowered the window in the back seat, and caught Emily’s attention. Through the clear sheen of heavy rain, Danny made a wild hand gesture. He would write to her.

She rolled down her window and shouted though the pelting rain, “Yes…write me! Cathleen will send you my address.”

The last he saw of her was that beaming smile. Both cars drove away. Rolling the window up, Danny sat dripping wet and quite surprised and satisfied. In one afternoon his life had changed. He now had no doubt that he wanted to study to become a doctor.  More than that, he wanted Emily for his own.
