The Behrman didn’t utter a word and went downstairs where he lives. Johnsy asked Sue to open the window the next morning. Sue was afraid as she knew that Johnsy want to see the last remaining leaf on the creeper. If it is not there, she will be depressed, but she still removed the curtains and opened the window. Johnsy was delighted to see the last leaf was still there even. She asked Sue to see that leaf as it was looking greener and healthy.
Johnsy was amazed to see the leaf and informed Sue. That despite last night harsh cold weather the leaf is still there. How she thought by the time she would be up the leaf wouldn’t be there. But for sure it will fall today, and then she will die for sure but nothing happened. Sue tried to console her that she has to live and finally she saw Johnsy smile a little. Johnsy still was noticing the leaf there and finally started to recover. And said she’s been a bad girl as she wasn’t cooperating with Sue. Even though, Sue was taking care of her.
