Reverend: Fancy meeting you here. Are we still on for tomorrow night?
Ah yes the Casino Night fundraiser for the school was tomorrow night. And “we” was the parish community. And Sheila was the co-chair.
Sheila: I’ll be there. I worked too hard on this not to see it through. But after tomorrow, I am leaving.
Reverend: Dear Sheila, we’ve been over this before. You’re not leaving. How many times have you told me that? Still you stay. You know where your loyalties lie.
Sheila (wiping tears from her eyes): Look, you cannot talk me out of it this time. Just let me be. For my sanity.
As always, more to come.
