Looking at an empty space... Karla made a sudden remark.

"Can you excuse me for a while?"

She went to the diner's restroom to liven up. She was physically with them but her mind seemed to fly at a distance. She came back and the last ordered food was served.

Father Reily's presence somehow brought buoyancy to the atmosphere. He never run out of jokes. He would always mesmerize his audience with great sense of humor. Karla smiled though a little hesitant but it really made Mama Gee much glad to see those dimples again.

"I thought I would be staying at your house Gee once I arrived from Sydney but I was invited by Edgar Montenegro to spent a week in their hometown in Pampanga. As I've told you in my last email, I met him during the World Youth Day. He'll be going back to Australia next month with his youngest son, Greg."

Father Reily was so pleased to tell that story because he wanted to introduce Greg to Karla. They were of the same age and maybe... just maybe, his dear Dolliedy would have a change of heart.
