“Jack, go see her.”
He stopped halfway down the steps but didn’t turn around. “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
“She’s going to need to see you now. She’s going to want to know you’re okay.”
“She was Bill’s girl.”
“I doubt if even Bill thought that was true at the end. I know in your heart you never did.”
“Then you know more about me than I know about me.”

The inside of the church was lighter than the foyer but not by much. The stained-glass windows glowed dully with little illumination, backlit by the gray light from outside. On the wall between the windows were half-life-sized friezes of the Stations of the Cross, as if Christ’s struggles to drag the cross through the streets were seeping out of the plaster. Flanking the sanctuary were grottos and niches displaying holy statues; confessionals lined the rear of the church like a row of guardhouses. Or wood porta-potties. Banks of small votive candles flickered at the railing in front of the main altar. The church was empty except for one lone figure kneeling in front of a grotto with a statue of the Virgin holding the infant Jesus. Harry Todd sidestepped through the empty pews to the side aisle and approached her, taking a seat nearby. It was several minutes before Donna lifted her head and looked at him. She smiled, a dreamy, almost beatific expression on her face, as if she weren’t at all surprised to see him, almost as if she were expecting him. Harry Todd smiled in return.
I’ll bet I’m going to wish I had waited outside. . . .
