Mitch had already left for his home in New York, so Erica still hadn’t told him about Wally. She knew Margie had her suspicions, but since Margie had gotten her connected with Wally, Erica hoped she’d play dumb and mind her own business.
The truth was, Erica simply couldn’t resist Wally’s charm and transparent honesty. His worldly life-experience seemed to add to his magnetism. So, when he asked her out for New Year’s Eve, she knew it would be for a real date, and there was no way to deny it.
Erica knew she needed to clean up the messy situation she had created, but she lacked the will to do it. She wanted to be with Wally. And she wanted to be with Mitch. And she wanted to serve God.
It seemed that Erica couldn’t open her Bible these days Without conviction piercing her heart. She couldn’t stand to pray one more time to ask forgiveness for something she knew she’d want to do the next time the opportunity presented itself. After all, she could have fun when she didn’t let her heart communicate with her mind. She didn’t seem to care about what she was doing, but she cared enough to ask God to help her to care again.
