Story Summary

As an assignment for her Health Science class, Anne has to volunteer at the hospital with her dog. Impatient to complete the assignment so that she can go on her first date, she makes excuses to Toby, a young cancer patient. Feeling guilty, she returns the next day ready to spend the whole day if necessary but finds only a neatly made bed and two sanitized glasses turned upside down on the bedside tray.
