Free Write Friday; Time & Place Scenario – Dear God, What Now? – Part 7

“Perfect,” Monique said as Reggie handed her the address, “I will pick you up there  shortly and we will have a marvelous conversation!!  I promise it won’t be boring.”  After which she flashed her the most brilliant and kind smile that Regina had ever seen.  At that moment she felt a surge of great love for this woman, Miss Monique D’bua.

With that being said, they parted company.  When she had returned to the hostel, she left a wake-up for two hours later.  That would give her plenty of time to take a quick shower and re-apply her make-up before Monique arrived.

Reggie fell right to sleep as soon as her head hit the pillow and awoke refreshed.  She was looking forward to dinner, not only because she was famished, but she truly enjoyed Monique’s company as well.

Just as she expected, Monique arrived promptly 3 hours later, at 5:30.  She said she  had a special restaurant that she wanted to take Regina to eat at, her treat!  As they exited the hostel, Reggie saw a stretch Limo was sitting there.  “Is that our ride?”

Monique giggled a little bit and nodded, “Yes, it is!  Do you like it?”

“Oh yes, very much so!”

“Well, it’s my husband’s money, you see, but he allows me to freely spend it!  He inherited a fortune from his parents when they passed on and then increased by at least 10 times after that.  It’s what you Americans call ‘ old family money’ that gave him his start.”

On the ride, they chatted about generalities; her trip, the people she had met, etc.  Reggie was quite comfortable talking to Monique by the time they were seated for dinner in their private dining room.  

Monique flashed that brilliant smile at her again while saying, “I thought this would give us some privacy to discuss the coming events.  Besides, I just plain don’t feel like being stared at while we talk.”

“Okay,” Reggie replied, “since you brought it up, why don’t we get started  now?!  The suspense is killing me.”

“Alright then.  I prayed over it again while I was shopping to be sure that I got everything right and I was assured that I did.  First, I’m so happy to be a part of your journey because I have, first of all, made a new friend that I like very much and, second, because I have been praying for God to give me something to do with all these resources that I have at my disposal.”

Reggie was so excited that she was gushing, “You mean you are coming with me?!”

“Yes, I am for now anyway!” Monique couldn’t keep the elation from bubbling up any longer and began laughing uncontrollably when Reggie jumped up and started dancing around their private room.  Monique’s laugh was so sweet, it sounded like an angel, and very contagious.  Reggie decided she better sit down before she ended up rolling on the floor.

“Oh, Monique, I am so grateful to both God and you for this!  I hate traveling alone as it is but to a whole other unfamiliar continent was very intimidating, not to mention the language barrier.  Besides all that, I wanted to have more time to spend with you too!  I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship!!” …  to be continued

“Sure,” she said and with that pulled the wallet out of her purse and handed her $300.

The woman’s eyes were bigger than silver dollars at the sight of the money.  ”May God richly bless you for this!!!”

Reggie smiled at the woman and walked away with a warm feeling inside.  Silently she whispered to God, “That felt great, Father!  I wish I could do stuff like that every day for the rest of my life!!”

Too keyed up to sleep or sit in a room watching TV, Regina decided to go for a walk and see the sights, whatever that might be.  She had only traveled for a few blocks when she saw a couple walking down the sidewalk on the other side of the street and they were both laughing and whispering to each other.  Right there on the ground was a homeless couple all bundled up in their coats and huddling to get warm.  

A wave of anger shot through Reggie as she realized that the couple went walking right past them while  laughing at the same time.  How cruel people can be, she thought and made a beeline across the street.  Just as she got within hearing distance, Reggie heard the woman sniffling and knew she was crying.

“Don’t pay any attention to snobs like that!” she said practically spitting the words out of her mouth.  The couple both sat up and stared at her with shocked expressions on their faces.  Then it was her turn to be shocked.  Now that they were not hunched over, Reggie could see that they had been sheltering a young girl of about 6 or 7 years old.  Trying to keep her warm more than likely.

“Hi! My name is Reggie, do either of you speak English?”

“Yes, I do!”, the little girl answered her in the sweetest voice she had ever heard, she sounded like an angel.    “My name is Suzette and these are my parents Caroline and Robert.”  The couple stared back at Suzette and spoke rapidly in German to her while gesturing towards Reggie.

“My parents would like to know what you are doing in Switzerland, do you live her or just touring?”

“Actually, this might sound a little crazy but I’m on a sort of mission from God.  I think I’m standing right here at this very moment because I’m supposed to help you.” Reggie replied to the young girl but was looking at her parents as she spoke.  She then reached down into her purse and withdrew the wallet from it.  She opened it up with a silent prayer, “How much God?”  

Reggie immediately felt more than she actually heard the amount of $1000, so she counted out 10 of the $100 bills and handed them to Suzette’s mother who was staring at her with tears streaming down her cheeks.  Caroline jumped to her feet and began hugging Regina and thanking her profusely!

Then she could have sworn she heard a whisper in her ear saying, “Well done!”…   to be continued
