“What happened, Thomas?” “I…I won’t be here when you arrive.” “What the hell happened, Thomas? What happened to Lily?” “I’m going after them. I’m going now, I have to go.”
Robert and Jesse enter the dining hall. Ben follows close behind. They dress well in clothes clean and pressed. Father Gabriel sits before an extended table. Peter stands beside him.
