K: Hey, you doing ok?
L: I’ll be fine.
K: How was ur day at work? I’m going back to camp tonight.
L: Hey, my day was packed as usual esp nearing the trip.
Anyway, I’ve thought about things very carefully over the past few days and I think we agree that this cannot go on indefinitely without any commitment to a defined course of action.
It is we also agree that the central issue is pride and how it has affected so many of us around you.
How about we take the next two weeks as quiet time off, just clean of contact with each other, to really self-reflect, pray and speak to others for guidance?
Let’s talk when I get back on 8 September. I would very much like to hear from you then.
Complete and utter silence.
A sense of deep sadness bathes my heart and I mentally prepare myself for the worst at Day 14.
