Nothing's Going To Harm You, Not While I'm Around

Lovey Howell was exited for a night at the theatre. She and Thurston were going to a Broadway musical. She loved musicals very much, especially opening night. When she stepped out of the limo, she was startled by a young girl who practically ran into her.

"Young lady, you better watch where you are going", said Lovey, not really looking at the girl.

Before the girl could respond, she fainted on the sidewalk. It was then that Lovey realized how dirty and malnourished the girl was. At first she was disgusted, but then a wave of sympathy washed over her and tears freely flowed down her cheeks. She decided that she must help that poor dear.

"Somebody call an ambulance! The poor dear needs help!" She knelt beside her and held her hand. Something told her that this was the right thing to do. Her heart went out to her she wanted to see that she would be alright. A crowd gathered around seeing what was causing the commotion.

"Come on Lovey, dear. She'll be helped I'm sure", said Thurston.

"I want to stay with her, Thurston. I want to be a Good Samaritan. She needs someone to be with her. She's just a girl!"

"A Howell help a poor girl, really, Lovey!"

"Thurston I really don't want to argue in front of all these people."

"Well alright, Lovey, I really wanted go to the theater, though."

"Then go you, silly heartless man", shouted Lovey, not caring what others thought. Had he no compassion?

"I'll stop and see the girl in the hospital tomorrow and give her some money", said Thurston.

"Thank you, darling!" Lovey gave him a peck on the cheek, then knelt beside the girl, held her hand and began to pray as she waited for the ambulance. "It'll be alright, darling. I'll make sure you receive the best care.
