Yesterday, over tea and chocolate, Xsenia asked me why I haven't been going to church lately, "You're not pulling an Adriel on us? You're not having a faith crisis?" she prodded. Xsenia manages to be both fierce and playful at once.
"No," I replied thoughtfully, "I'm just being lazy."
Nostalgia sipped her tea slowly and said nothing. After a pause, she smiled, "No, Lucy's given up going to church for Lent this year."
