“I truthfully don’t want to offend anyone, but I don’t believe in angels Olivia. I think that man was just a second chance giving kind of person. A rarity in this world. Few can forgive, let alone give someone an opportunity out of it. ”
“True. I guess I didn’t think of it that way. I think of things in a symbolic way. I suppose I could have said he was like an angel.” Olivia explains.
“True. He was like an angel to us. He could have called the police. Who knows what could have happened?! They could have taken you away. Poke you with a bunch of needles. You do realize Olivia, what you have is desirable by those with power or money? You do realize what your ability could do in the wrong hands? Especially now?” Jackie asks with concern.
“I never thought of it that way until now truthfully. It was fun Jackie but I do realize it’s going to come with some not so fun parts. Like dealing with power tripping people.” Olivia admits.
“We have to look out for trouble. Me even knowing about this puts me in danger really.”
“Sorry I involved you in this. I had no one…” 0livia pleads.
“Stop! I’m happy you came to me. Although it comes with risk, you and I actually have a chance to make a difference now. We have a yet to be created purpose. Before this, I was just going through the motions in life. Olivia, this is pretty freaking awesome! Think about it! You’re like some kind of superhero.” Jackie says with the upmost enthusiasm, while raising her arms halfway to her sides like she always does when childlike excited about something.
“Thanks for being the coolest friend I’ve ever had.”
“No problem. You see I think we both can adapt to this situation quite well.” Jackie admits.
“Agreed. I can’t have my own back either all the time.”
“I think we need a night to recover. No more gambling for awhile, haha. Perhaps we should just sit around tonight and find out what you can do.” Jackie chuckles.
“Agreed. I’m exhausted. This whole night has been overwhelming.”
They drive back to Jackie’s apartment, grab some Ben n Jerry’s, a movie, and a new deck of cards. They contemplate possible future moral dilemmas and discuss ways to help others. The specific people they plan to help and the forgotten. They make plans to conquer the pain they see in the eyes of others.
