I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish that He didn't trust me so much. ~ Mother Teresa
Arinda I feel the same way about Nathan.
Nathan Now, Rinda, I have every confidence in you.
Arinda A little less wouldn’t hurt.
Jahx She’s a clever girl, isn’t she?
Nathan Yes she is! She could take on the world, I think! I’ve been meaning to discuss giving her more realm responsibilities.
Arinda I don’t need any additional responsibilities, thank you.
Jahx Really? What sort of responsibilities?
Nathan Oh, I think she’d be fantastic to replace Catherine as the head of the Rowan Charitable Trust.
Jahx That would be wonderful. We could get the Magicker’s College involved, too?
Nathan Exactly my thinking!
Catherine And why, may I ask, do I need to be replaced as Head of the Charitable Trust?
Nathan I’m only thinking of you, Kitty.
Jahx I’m sure Arinda would still need you in an advisory capacity, Catherine.
Arinda I’m not doing it! Catherine, I’m not, and he can't make me!
Catherine Don’t worry about it, my dear. Nathan is just trying to get out of hosting this year’s Trust Cotillion tonight.
Nathan I think Arinda would be brilliant at that, Catherine. Stop trying to squelch her!
Arinda Funny, I don’t feel squelched.
Catherine Not getting out of it, Nathan. Go put your crown on!
Nathan Rrrgh! Rinda, get your crown; you’re going to a party! If I have to suffer, you have to suffer.
Arinda What? Nuh-uh!
Catherine It would be nice to have you AND Jahx, dear.
Jahx Gosh, look at all the papers I have to grade. Sorry, Catherine, I just can’t do it. But Arinda would be happy to go!
Catherine Oh, lovely! Hurry along now, Rinda. We’ll be starting soon.
Arinda JAHX!!! Oh, just wait till I get home, buddy.
Jahx Hey, it’s for charity of the realm, Rinda. Lead by example.
Arinda Guess what, Jahx? You’re not sleeping at my house tonight. How's that for an example of leading, pal!
Nathan Looks like you’re gonna be needing some charity of your own, Jahx.
Jahx Shut up, Nathan.
