Arthur Thornton blinked out of his stare and collected his bookbag from beneath his seat. He still wasn't sure what he had just witnessed. Standing up, he nearly fell back into his seat when he sidestepped to avoid a pretty red-haired girl who was talking furiously into her cell phone.
"Okay, okay, so you were in chapel too, right?"
Arthur followed close behind her as she stepped into the thick tangle of students marching from the dark university auditorium into the morning November light.
The red-haired girl wasn't the only one worked up. Arthur slowed his walk across the open square outside the auditorium and let the student body envelop him. Standing in the crowd, Arthur listened to pieces of a thousand small conversations that would carry to their own corners of campus, each talking about Chaplain Benson and the girl he just kicked out of chapel.
