â€œSee that guy over there, the hot one near the guitarist?â€
â€œHe said that I was like, amazing.â€
â€œAnd then he said that I could belong to Jesus.â€
â€œI know, right. And heâ€™s cute too, but he was just wording me up. I thought he really liked me and everything.â€
â€œSo, I just walked away and let him see what he was missing out on if you know what I mean.â€
â€œIâ€™m over this, letâ€™s find some real entertainment.â€
When I do manage to get someone to stop and talk, it never works. Some smile and nod, others stand and listen for a while before they make an excuse. A few, well, theyâ€™re just so rude. I donâ€™t know if I can take it anymore.
â€œAs if Iâ€™m going to let that upstart tell me what I need. The cheek of him, suggesting that I accept this Jesus business.â€
â€œOh, I agree. The city square, clogged up with all this carry-on, how are decent people supposed to get their shopping done? Iâ€™m going to write to the council and complain.â€
â€œIâ€™ll sign it too, thatâ€™ll carry some weight. What is it with young people and those dreadlock things? I refuse to entertain the idea that a shaggy, ill-mannered boy could know anything about life, or me.â€
â€œThe last time I wrote to the council, they didnâ€™t even respond. Iâ€™ll use exclamation marks this time. They wonâ€™t be able to ignore that!â€
â€œYanking that pamphlet out of his hand, screwing it up and throwing it in the bin right in front of him, that taught him about real life.â€
I invite people into our van, entertain them with coffee and biscuits, give them a warm place to sit for a while, but it never makes any difference. What am I even doing out here?
â€œWho would have thought that young people could be so engaged with the idea of there being a God? Where do they get the motivation to come out on a freezing winterâ€™s night and talk about Jesus?â€
â€œI know, itâ€™s weird.â€
â€œA whole group of them, playing guitars and singing. Some of them were even dancing. Iâ€™ve never seen Christians doing that before; it was quite entertaining. Whereâ€™s that pamphlet they gave us?â€
â€œI think you put it in your pocket.â€
â€œThat young man we spoke to had such a quiet way with him. He kind of - shone. Here it is. Now, what does this thing say?â€
