Sandy is my best friend. Every day, she joins me at school.
We talk and tell each other everything.
But today, Sandy wasn't in school. I didn't know where she was.
I started to feel worried. I hoped she wasn't sick.
At break time, I sent her a message. But Sandy didn't answer.
After school, I call her. "Are you sick?" I ask.
"No," she says.
"Why didn't you come to school today?" I ask.
"I went to the hospital to see my dad. He has a problem with his heart."
I feel bad for her. I don't say anything for a moment.
"I am so sorry. Is he OK?" I ask.
Sandy said she doesn't know.
The doctors detected a problem during his checkup last week.
He went into the hospital today.
"Why didn't you tell me?" I ask.
But Sandy just says she has to go.
I know that Sandy must be scared. I want to comfort her.
But what can I do? What would you do?
