CATHERINE: Darq! Come look–he’s okay.
Darq pads barefoot into Catherine’s office, the morning paper in hand and a cup of steaming coffee in the other hand. She pauses to look over Catherine’s shoulder and read what’s on the monitor–the blog entry of Father Dragon / Al Diaz.
Catherine slowly scrolls the screen down for Darq to read the post and see the photos posted, which show the flooding in Mexico.
Minutes later, Darq says: What a relief! Seeing all those weather reports and reading the news about those horrendous rains–I was worried about him.
CATHERINE: I know you were. So was I. And knowing how bad the storms were, I figured communications lines and the Internet would be down for weeks to come, so it’s doubly nice to see he got a message out.
DARQ half smiles: It’s also good to know the books he treasured weren’t destroyed.
CATHERINE: He said there were a few casualties. Take heart, too, the Dragon Cave is safe.
DARQ: Bet Father Dragon mustered the dwarves into relays to sandbag and shore up things to minimize the damage. You will send him a message that we’re glad he’s okay and that we’ve been thinking about him, right?
CATHERINE: Already did that. But now, pause a moment with me to pray for him, his neighbors, his relatives, and all the people of Mexico who were affected by the horrific flooding of the storms.
