Linda immediately grabs the phone from Lily and said,
Linda: Tom, come here now! We are waiting for you just now.
Then she quickly hangs up the phone.  Tom walks slowly to the table with a simple smile on his face and grab a chair to sit with them.
Tom: Hi, girls! Hello, Michelle. How are you? By the way, Michelle… you are looking great today.
Lily and Linda: Oooo… Is that only for Michelle? How about us? Okay… okay…

Lily: By the way, Tom… Linda and I have to go now. Can you accompany Michelle? We have something to do at Linda’s Bookstore. Will you?
Tom: huh? Okay… Make sure to come back here, okay? I will wait for you, Lily.
Lily: Okay… Take care.
Tom: See you.

Lily and Linda leave Tom alone with Michelle at the table. Tom tries to start the conversation.

Tom: By the way, Michelle… Last time I met you, we just having a short conversation right? So, can we start from the beginning again?
Michelle: Mmm… Tom… I’m sorry. I have to go now. Somebody is waiting for me at home. Maybe we can chat next time. I’m really sorry.

After that awkward moment, Michelle never comes to the coffee shop again. It’s almost a week since the last time Tom meets Michelle. Lily and Linda also wondering what happens to Michelle. Tom and Lily are having their breakfast at the coffee shop that morning.

Tom: Lily, have you seen Michelle these few days? I’m not seeing her at this coffee shop about one week. I’m wondering what happens to her.
Lily: Yeah, Tom. I also wonder why she is not coming to the coffee shop. Maybe Linda knows something about this.

Suddenly, Lily’s phone is ringing. It’s Linda that calls Lily.

Linda: Lily, is Tom with you now? (Speaks fastly)
Lily: Hey, Linda. Relax. Yeah, Tom is with me. What’s wrong?
Linda: Can you come to Victoria’s Hospital now! Michelle was involved in an accident. Come faster.
Lily: What??! Oh my God! Okay, I’m on my way.

Lily grabs Tom’s hand and goes to her car and drive to the hospital. Tom is confused about what was happening. Tom keep asking Lily what is happening actually. But, Lily ignored Tom and drives to the hospital as fast as she can. When she arrived to the hospital, she saw Linda waiting for them. Lily parked her car and run to Linda.

Lily: Linda! Where is Michelle?
Tom: Michelle? What’s wrong? What happened to Michelle? Somebody answer me!
Linda: Michelle involved in an accident. Now she is in the Operation Room.
Tom: What?! (Slowly sitting on the floor and cry)
Lily: Tom! Hey… relax okay, Tom. Everything is going to be fine. Pray for her, okay?

Operation Room’s door is slowly open and the nurses are pushing someone on the trolley. It’s Michelle. Tom, Lily and Linda running to the body and check the body. It is Michelle. Tom runs to the wall and hit the wall.

Tom: No! Why God? I don’t have the chance to tell her how I feel to her? Why God?? Why you test me like this? I love her, God. I really love her! I do!
Michelle: Tom… is it true? You love me?
Tom: Michelle! I thought you are dead.
Michelle: That is my twin, Amy.  Doctor can’t save her.
Tom: Ouh… I’m sorry to hear that. Are you okay, Michelle?
Michelle: I’m okay. Just headache and some scratch. It was Amy that drives the car.
Tom: Hey, you need to rest. Let’s go, let me bring you to the chair.
Michelle: It’s okay. I’m fine. Hey, Tom… You love me? Why you don’t say it before?
Tom: Urm… about that… I’m sorry. I don’t how to say it.
Lily and Linda come to Michelle and say to her,
Lily: Michelle, I’m sorry to hear about your twin.
Linda: Yes, Michelle. Thanks God that you are fine.
Michelle: Thanks, girls. I don’t know how to say thanks to you all.
Linda: Its okay, Michelle.
