STORY EXCERPT #3
Amos closed his mouth and shook his head. His Sophie…a…he reached for his tie, but it wasn’t there. He hadn’t worn one since Sophie told him her pastor T hadn’t. Something must be hindering his ability to breathe. He loosened his collar.
It didn’t help.
“If what Hanson says is true, then Pastor Amos can order himself a new bride from the other applicants he received. It’s not his fault this woman was a—a…well, you know.” The pianist’s husband squared his shoulders. “Pastor Amos shouldn’t be tarnished because of that woman. I still vote to keep him on as a candidate.”
“Agreed. His sermons are quicker than Pastor Gable’s ever were.” Someone said from the fourth row. “I’ve not fallen asleep once during Pastor Amos’s.”
The shortest man in Hilltop’s congregation raised his hand. It almost cleared the top of William’s head. “I have a cousin twice removed on the other side of the river. She’s a good church girl. She’s not too old for Pastor Amos.” His voice deep and low, a contradiction to his short stature. “Not if he hurries.”
Amos slid his knuckles down his thighs. Pauline had been a good churchgoing girl, too, and look where that led him. Not that it mattered. He was not going to choose a new bride. He wanted Sophie. God had sent her to him.
