Operation: Holy Child

I’m not perfect at all but I try my best and I love learning what Daddy teaches us from the synagogue. But I’m not that good. I made many empty promises to Scott that I’ll never be able to keep. Mama says to stop being so hard on myself because youngins like me hardly know what we’re talking about anyway. Something about how our brains ain’t fully formed or whatever.

Sounds pretty silly, if you ask me. I’m pretty sure God knows how to make a whole brain just fine. Now they might work differently but that still ain’t really His fault.

Anyway, back to Scott. He was my best friend and he always knew just what to do to make me laugh. Well, a few days ago he made me real mad. Got home from the market and my room was a mess.

And you know what else? I got in trouble for it! I did what any 12 and a half year old girl would do…I wished Scott would just die so I wouldn’t be in trouble anymore.

You won’t believe this but, poof! He disappeared! I have no words except my dog vanished in thin air.

“Agent Scott, are you sure this is the right person for the mission? She seemed gung-ho about wishing you away.”

“Yes, Agent Kelly. This little human is definitely the best Earth has to offer.”

“Okay. Well, let’s go tell the Commander in Chief that we found Code M.A.R.Y. just like He said. We’ll watch her the next few years, but Special Ops Gabe will be heading that assignment.”
