Reply To: Dealing with a Dilemma – Open-ended Story

#108760

Jack went to bed that night and dreamed about attending his mother’s funeral ceremony. This nightmare gave him almost a heart attack. When he woke up, he was so happy to see his mother alive and he said to himself that his mother was the most important thing to him in the world.
The following day, his engineering talent helped him to strive to find a solution to his critical situation. He called the university he was admitted to with a trembling voice. He discussed his issue with the scholarship and admission committee.
He told them that he couldn’t leave his sick mother alone and start his education. All of a sudden, in the middle of the telephone conversation, he burst into tears inadvertently and asked for their guidance.
The person in charge told Jack that he would inform him about the decision of the committee in one or two days. Finally, the committee contacted Jack on the telephone and notified him that Jack could bring his mother to the dormitory as well. They said that because Jack was the most prominent candidate for that educational position, the committee could make an exception to accommodate his mother as well.

When Jack told his mother about this good promising news, he could vividly see the glow of joy and admiration in her eyes. The following day, both Jack and his mother, who was feeling much better now, were busy packing and getting ready for their long happy journey.
