A/N: Thanks to garpu and several non-LJ friends (Pam, Luke, and Lois) for "Catholic-picking" this story.
We pray not to be noticed. I’m a second shift cook; Carmela’s a food service tech. Except for guards, we never see anyone from the upper decks. We don’t wear our rings at work – hygiene regs – now, we hide them always. Satan hungers to destroy love, and That Man is his servant.
Soon, there can be no hiding. Carmela’s getting bigger. I pray to Our Lord and His Mother, and every saint I know. Time speeds by. Tomorrow is the anniversary of the Calamity.
Carmela smiles at me. “Another saint for our prayers, querido. The patron of kitchen workers – Martha.”
