“Dear Sally! I´m sorry that I caused you so much pain. Yes, I have an alter ego just like you. After all, aren´t we splitting mirror images of each other? Hoping that you hold on and keep the faith.”

Amidst the piercing flash lights came two good samaritans. A couple who offered to help Sally take Rob to the hospital. Sally murmured every prayer she knew.
Within fifteen minutes of reaching the hospital, Rob was proclaimed dead. Sally couldn´t believe misfortune´s sudden windfall.
