Happy Saturday! I’m enjoying my vacation and some much-needed rest after last week’s three shows. The musical went off without a hitch, though my poor younger child missed the first show due to a severe sore throat. They’ve already started rehearsals for Big Fish, the February main stage show.
This week’s snippet follows directly from last week’s. Chris has come to see Micah at the school where Micah teaches. He’s introduced himself as a minister at the local multi-denominational church. (For those familiar with the series, the church made a brief appearance in both previous novels. Micah jokingly called it “gay church.”)
“Oh. Uh…oh,” was all Micah managed. That had been Cat’s church. He took several breaths to steady himself. Chris looked vaguely familiar, but Micah couldn’t be sure; he’d only been to church with Cat a handful of times, and he hadn’t gone at all after Cat’s funeral.
“I’m sorry. I assumed this would be the best way to find you. I’m still getting reacquainted with life in a small town after living in the city for so long.” Chris smiled.
“No problem. You’re right, this is probably easier than showing up on my doorstep.” Micah let out a shaky laugh.
Chris chuckled too. “Right. Well, I was hoping to talk to you for a moment.”
