It was quite late that night that the friar finally had the car running smoothly again. Sister Innocence Personified had come by with a bowl of broth and some bread for him and had helped him give the car a final clean.

She had forgiven him for his part in her purple embarrassment. There is something quite cathartic in beating someone around the head with a sandal. They walked back to his room, at a demure distance apart but both intensely aware of the other.

The friar read the following meassage on his computer while the Sister washed her hands:


Attn:Augustus,

How are you and what is happening?.
Do you want to make me a liar to the lawyer or what?.
Are you trully sure that you can handle this fund for this humilated family, for it is not bad trusting you?.
If yes,why are you still delaying till this time?.

Me? How can he say that?

Read and remember this message's dated:-
1.Date: Sun, 13 Apr 2003 15:00:11 +1000 ( One must have noble goals, don't you agree? One must look within one's self to find ways to help others,and I am willing to help you with this venture as long as my participation remains STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL.Is that understood?.We cannot afford adverse publicity under any circumstances ).

2. sun, 27 Apr 2003 17:56:26 +1000 ( Please forgive my delay in replying. It has een a traumatic day for me.I will go into town on Monday.You can rely on me ).

3.Date: Fri, 25 Apr 2003 23:25:32 +1000 ( But thank you for your faith in me.I will not let you down ).

Good grief, thought the friar. It is the inquisition all over again.

It seem's you prefer the building projects at the monastery to continue sufferring for lack of funds.If the St.Rumpet's Monastery and Orphanage is not opportuned,there is no problem but remember that God has set you for a purpose ok.This is a great opportunity and a challenge.Work delivered to you by God through one the Vestal Virgins.What a luck to you and the church.

Don't I know it, smiled the friar.

Confirm your payment of this mobilisation fee to the lawyer and leave me to perform whenever all the vital paper's has been acquired just to ascertain you as true owner and depositor of this fund in or bank.Please let the application be signed and stamped underneath,officially ok.

Waiting for your urgent reply asap.

Thanks and best regard's,

Blessing Justice

“What are you reading?” asked the Sister.

“Oh, it is a Nigerian business man who wants me to help him” answerd the friar. “But he can wait, I have some other business to attend to. ”

He switched off the light...
