Agnetha Lowy stood in the pew of the Szent Istvan church. Shewas in the front row on the bride’s side, with her parents. Therewere her sister and her sister’s boyfriend, and her brother and hiswife. They were singing hymns for the happy couple.Actually, Agnetha and her parents had been almost late to SzentIstvan, the church that had stood in the community for more thanfifty years. There had been a barrage of traffic, which Agnethaimagined her parents liked no more than she did. Her fatherwould occasionally react as if the car in the front was a personalinsult. He was one who tended to keep his anger in, all in.Agnetha had had to be pinned in for everything. It was the day before, and her mother still hadn’t finished the sewing.

hi dh! I wish you'd fill out your profile a little more, and explain that cute avatar, and also your poster series! You're all over town on Scribd and I enjoy reading your comments. Now you're branching out into fiction. How old exactly is Agnetha? At first I thought she was an adult, and then I realized she must be a child. Is there a way to make that clearer? Cheers, Helen
