Barbara has driven Ben to the church, where he is going through the charity bin in search of his things.
Ben: Damn it, it's not here! That Tish girl apparently put it here, but I can't find it!
Babs: Ooh I'd love to stay an' 'elp you luv, but I've gotter dash. I have someone I 'ave to pick up now.
Ben: *sighs* That's all right. I guess my attempt to get out of here has failed yet again. I just hope I can find somewhere else to stay, rather than... *shudders* Well anyway. Thanks for your help Barbara... *waves as she drives away then turns back to the charity bin and kicks it* Damn it!
"We have come to collect you and take you back to the house. If you don't come with us, we will tell father we found you molesting a goat at Doctor Chinnery's office and you had to be put down on accoutn of bestiality..."

Ben: *steps back* I'm not going back there! You can't make me! *looks around desperately for an escape route, then sees the entrance of the church* I'm not going with you! *he turns on his heel and sprints towards the doors, and pushes them open, racing into the church*
The church is gloomy despite the weak sun filtering through the stained glass windows. Standing by the lecturn is Bernice Woodall, Reverend in residence. She is giving a sermon to the singular person in the church, who sleeps on his pew, mouth wide open...
"And then Jesus reached out to the poor man with leprousy, and behold he was cured!" Who wrote this shit? I'm sure that if Jesus really had been in a crowd of lepers he'd be out of there so fast, he'd leave their amputated fingers and festering sexual parts spinning behind him in his wake. Bound to be the result of depraved sexual activity... Perverts"

Ben steps back slightly at the Reverend's rather icy response. "It's... uh... These people. They're after me... I need somewhere to stay, at least until I can find a way to get out of town..." he casts a glance towards the church entrance. "Could you help me at all...?" he notices the lipstick on her teeth and arches his eyebrow.
