From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
It's raining. A lot. Inside Saint Christopher's church, we meet the vicar, Bernard, who is friends with Lucy's mom.
Rain is pouring down outside. The flood is so high that Bernard imagines that he can see a crocodile swimming in the dirty water. (Well, there is a zoo nearby.) In fact, it's so flooded that people are stranded in the church, which is conveniently on a hill.
Laura has come to help Bernard with the parishioners (how? by boat?) by bringing a bunch of stuff from her kitchen and helping serve food.
As they talk we can see that Bernard and Laura have a bit of a crush on each other. They talk about Lucy. It seems that she's been having visitations from angels since childhood.
Knowing what we know, it's hard to figure out if she just has an overactive imagination or if Bob has been up to his tricks.
Anyway, it's not like she'll get married to God, right? Right?
