November came. It was very cold in the streets and it rained every day.
One day Johnsy fell ill. She was very ill. She was all hot and cold and her head was heavy.Once the doctor said, "Sue, I want to talk to you. Come out into the corridor".In the corridor the doctor said, "Sue, your friend is very ill. My medicine will not help her if she does not want to live. And she says that she wants to die. When people do not want to live, no medicine can help them".

The doctor went away and Sue stayed in the corridor and cried.
"Sue, come here please," called her friend.
"Yes, Johnsy, I shall come in a minute," answered Sue.She stopped crying, wiped her eyes and went into the room.
"What did the doctor tell you ?" asked Johnsy.
"He says that you will be well soon," answered the girl.
"No, said Johnsy, I shall die soon".

"You must not think about it and then you will be well. You must eat something. I shall make you a nice soup".
Sue begin to make the soup, when she suddenly heard Johnsy voice :
"Twelve, eleven," she said and then, "ten, nine, eight" and "seven".
Sue came up to Johnsy's bed and looked out of the window.What was there to count ? - There was a yard and a big wall. An old ivy vine climbed half way up the wall. There were only a few brown leaves on it.
"Johnsy, what are you counting ?" asked the girl.

"I am counting the leaves. Yesterday there were many leaves. Today there are only seven. Oh! Another leaf fell down. Now there are only six leaves on the ivy vine".
"But why do you count them ?" asked Sue.
"I count them because I know that when the last leaf falls down I shall die," said Johnsy.

"Johnsy, please, please do not say so".
Evening came. There was only one leaf on the old ivy vine now. All the other leaves had fallen down.

"You see, Sue, there is only one leaf on the ivy vine now. It fall down at night and then I shall die".
Sue did not answer her. She could not answer. She wanted cry. - She went into the corridor and cried there. At that moment old Behrman came into the corridor.

Behrman was a painter, too. He lived in the same house where Sue and Johnsy lived. He was sixty. He was not a very good painter but he always said, "Everybody laughs at old Behrman. But Behrman is a great painter. Some day he will paint a beautiful picture. Will be the best picture in the world".People did not like Behrman because he did not like talk with people and he always laughed at everybody.
"What's the matter, girl ?" he asked when he saw Sue.

"Oh, Johnsy is very ill," answered the girl, "the doctor says that the medicine will not help her if she doesn't want to live. And she counts the leaves of the old ivy vine in the yard".
"Why doesn't she want to live ? What leaves does she count ?"
"Johnsy thinks," said the girl, "that she will die when the last leaf on the old ivy vine in our yard falls down".
"And how many leaves are there on the ivy vine now?" asked Behrman.
"Only one. And I think it will fall down tonight".
"How silly your Johnsy is," said Behrman and went away.

Morning came. Johnsy looked out of the window and saw that the last leaf was still on the ivy vine. - The day passed. But the last leaf did not fall down. - Next morning came. The last leaf was still there.
"Oh, Sue this leaf wants to show me how silly I was. There was a wind and rain and it still lives. I shall not die, I shall live too".
A few days passed. The doctor came. He examined Johnsy and said, "My girl, you are well now. You were more lucky than Behrman".
