Kendalynn places the stack of plates on a buffet and counts to make sure that everything needed for a pleasant meal is on the table or near the food. The doorbell rings. She runs a hand over the front of her shirt as she leaves the dining room and goes through the living room toward the door.
“Lord, help me represent you well, Jesus name. Let’s do this.” Kendalynn inhales and releases a deep breath then opens the door. “Well hello ladies. Good to see you again Carmandi and Patronda. Please come in. Let me take your coats.”
Carmandi pulls her gloves off and places them in the pockets of her blush pink wool pea coat before handing it to Kendalynn. Patronda hands her faux fur to Kendalynn and stands next to Carmandi as Kendalynn hangs them up in the closet. Kendalynn opens her mouth to speak when the doorbell rings again.
