It was a simple enough request. Reverend Samuel was running a funday for homeless children on the following Saturday, and he wondered if anyone might be able to give up a couple of hours to help him. He wasn’t asking for any money or resources, just a little time and a little love. If he had asked for resources, he would have almost certainly been inundated with offers. As it was, the congregation stared back at him stonily. The rector had a look of longsuffering on his face, and was clearly bored by the request. Eventually Reverend Samuel smiled out at the sea of bland faces, and expressed his thanks for their time. As he was preparing to step out from behind the pulpit, a young girl with a very resolute expression on her face stood up. He would have guessed her to be about thirteen.
“If you please, Sir,” she said, speaking with an unmistakeable public school accent and ignoring both the angry whispered rebukes from her parents, and the pitying looks of her elder sister, “I’d love to do it. How can I help?”
