Overlooked

She pulled the door open and stepped onto the cool stones. Her eyes quickly adjusted to the darker. She dipped her hand into the font and made the Sign of The Cross. Her heels clicked on the marble and she lifted her steps to lessen the sounds. She genuflected and entered a row of pews in the rear of the nave. She knelt, made the Sign of The Cross, and offered a small prayer. She slid to a seat and sat. She spied him as he exited the confessional.

He walked toward the front of the church. His hands held a Rosary. He genuflected, made the Sign of The Cross, and entered a row of pews. He knelt, made the Sign of The Cross, and bowed his head. She watched as he prayed.
