Fun General Hospital Stories!
Sun was beaming through the hospital window when a nurse came in to
awaken Carly to check her temperature, and to take her blood pressure.
When the nurse had gone, Carly laid her hand on Lorenzo’s cheek, and gave
him a tender good-morning kiss. She let him know how much she loved him.
He returned the sentiment.
He was holding her hand in his when they brought in Carly’s breakfast.
Noticing that the time was eight o’clock, Lorenzo remarked that he had
something to do, but he would be back as soon as possible. With a kiss
good-bye, Lorenzo left.
Once in his car, Lorenzo called a well-known jewelers in New York City,
and promised that he would be there as soon as he could.
The traffic was too heavy for this time of morning, but he wanted to make
it to New York City as soon as he could get there. His thoughts went back
to Carly, and how much he loved her, and what a surprise that this
engagement ring would be to her. He didn’t have any idea what kind of ring
to get her, but he did know that her favorite gemstone was a sapphire so
that gave him something to work with.
Arriving in New York City, he glanced at his watch, and noticed that it
was 11:00 a.m. It had taken him exactly three hours which wasn’t bad for
this time of day.
Maneuvering his Mercedes in a parking space in front of the jewelers, he
hurriedly got out, and went into the jewelers. Looking around, he didn’t
see Mr. Rodriguez right off, but only a few cashiers. One of the cashiers
had approached him to ask if she could help him when Mr. Rodriguez came
out of the back, and when he spotted Lorenzo, he hurried up to him.
“I will take care of this gentleman.” Mr. Rodriguez told Rita, the
cashier. Rita mumbled, “very well.’ as she walked away, reluctantly.
Mr. Rodriguez motioned for Lorenzo to follow him into the back of the
Sitting down at the desk, Mr. Rodriguez opened the desk drawer, and took
out a large black velvet box.
Motioning toward the chair beside the desk, Lorenzo sat down. Turning to
face Lorenzo, Mr. Rodriguez opened the box. Inside were some of the most
exquisite gemstones that Lorenzo had ever seen in one place.
“What exactly are you looking for?” Mr. Rodriguez asked Lorenzo. “We have
diamonds, rubies, emeralds, sapphires, and amethysts.”
“Well, Carly is partial to pink sapphires with little diamonds.” Lorenzo
informed Mr. Rodriguez.
Mr. Rodriguez smiled a broad smile, and remarked that he thinks he has
just what Carly would like. Pulling another drawer open in the desk, he
takes out a smaller blue velvet box. Handing the box to Lorenzo, he asks
if Carly would like this. Taking the box from Mr. Rodriguez, Lorenzo opens
it very carefully.
Inside the box was the most exquisite pink sapphire and diamond ring that
Lorenzo had ever laid his eyes on. “How much is this?” Lorenzo asks when
he is finally able to speak.
“It is valued at twenty thousand dollars.” Mr. Rodriguez informs Lorenzo.
“Will you take a check?” Lorenzo asks as he pulls out his checkbook. Mr.
Rodriguez nods his head, as Lorenzo makes out the check for twenty
thousand dollars. Handing the check to Rodriguez, Lorenzo picks up the
ring. “Would you like that gift wrapped?” Rodriguez asks. Lorenzo replies
that he will just take it as is.
Putting the ring box securely in his pocket, Lorenzo thanks Rodriguez, and
Hurriedly getting into his car, Lorenzo fastens his seatbelt, and is soon
on his way back to Port Charles, and Carly.
