Summary: Shirley takes a walk
She walked with a purpose, nearly hurrying through the corridors as she prayed the words to the twenty-third psalm.
The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want…
Her footsteps barely made a sound on the tile floor, drowned out by the sound of her own voice and that of the priest sent to accompany her on this journey.
He restoreth my soul…
She felt the sun streaming in through the windows. How remarkable to feel it now, flooding her with warmth.
And I shall dwell in the house of the Lord for years to come.
It wasn’t until the gate swung open and the gallows was before her, waiting for her sacrifice, that she understood the gravity of the situation.
She was going to die.
