The Cathedral of Monte Cristo

Episode 11

An old woman came running towards them.

The priest was overjoyed to see Telesfora, the widow who had dedicated her life as a volunteer church worker.

"Padre!" she said as she helped him get up. "What happened?"

The priest and his mysterious visitor looked at each other.

"Ah, nothing," replied Padre Amidala. "I'm sorry, I just saw ... a mouse ..." He can't understand why he said that.

"A mouse?!" Telesfora was shocked. "Oh my Lord!" she crossed herself.

"It's alright," assured the priest. "You can go home now." It's as if somebody else was dictating his words. He looked at the intruder.

My mind is still on Cooper Foley, the young hero of D.J. MacHale's Morpheus Road: The Black which I just finished reading last night.

Cooper had been lying on his back on his boat, looking up at the stars, like I always do when I'm on the sea floating on the water.

The next thing he knew, he was in his hometown, in daylight. He was overjoyed when he saw his grandfather. Then, with horror, he remembered that his grandfather had died years ago.

For me, the absolute worst thing in the world is to be trapped, metaphorically and otherwise. In Aaron's case, he got stuck in a mountain crack when a large rock pinned his arm. ~ On 127 Hours
