Kathy is tall. Her reddish-brown hair glistens in the sunshine. Her green eyes resemble the ocean off of Sanibel Island.

The other one, Raquel, is short, has black hair and brown eyes and more than her share of freckles and fat. Like a chocolate chip cookie.
She's smart though. One smart cookie.

Their mom left their dad 6 years ago. she got sick of his drinking and beatings.

Kathy was sad. Raquel was glad.

After that, Kathy went through a series of affairs and married twice, haivng three children.

Raquel never married. She became career driven.

Both can be sassy and mean, not a good trait on a woman. Or anybody for that matter.

But Raquel knew her name meant lamb and that lambs really can't roar. She decided to forgive, to pray for him, to pray for the family.

But Kathy just went on drinking her bitter herbs.

"How can someone so beautiful be so ugly inside?" my aunt asks.

"Because beauty is really inside. And eventually what is inside, will come out." A cousin answers.

What is beautiful is a persons spirit. Not a person's looks.

Be beautiful inside.

There are some excellent ideas in this, and I like the contrast between the two characters. However, I would also have liked to see them more fleshed out and given the space you did have to go into more detail about the family and the father. (I think that is who Raquel is praying for). Lots of promise in this; so keep writing! God bless.
