Maybe they should have called it compassionate but ultimately naiive heart

For the Be Kind Rewrite Inspiration Monday challenge.

He finalised the arrangements for the operation on Monday morning and by the weekend was the proud new lender of a Compassionate Heart. The scar tissue was still tender but he was well enough to leave the clinic early and put it to good use. So he did the only thing he could think of, which was to walk right up to her door and say sorry. His old heart wouldn’t have let him do something like that but his old heart would also have known that you don’t just forgive and forget three broken ribs. And even if his old heart had been so short sighted, it definitely would have known to duck when he first saw the barrel of the gun.
