    I’m Sister Simon.
    Hi! I’m Ramón.
    Hello. I’m Cathlyn.
    I’m Mei Lin.
    Hi! I’m David.
    And I’m Joshua.


    Ow? Don’t you know any swear words?
    Too many.

    So use them! There’s no extra charge.

    But there is. They hurt my spirit, and I’m already hurting enough.

    Are you for real?
    If I’m not, a lot of pain is going to waste here.
