So much had changed since Thomas and Bridget returned. It shouldn’t have made that much of a difference, but she couldn’t help but take it badly. The closeness of the family as they practically closed ranks made her feel more alone than ever. Before their return, Abby had offered her friendship. Molly wished she could take her up on it. She just didn’t know how.
Most nights she was grateful that the pub kept her as busy as it did. Tonight was no exception. Molly sighed in contentment as things finally quieted down. Patrons filtered out of the room until there were only the last individuals still haunting the corners. The atmosphere had turned quiet, and Molly was happy to be done for the day.
Stealthily, so as not to wake any interim patrons, Molly snuck over to her chest in the common bedroom. By touch, she opened the lock and took out her writing materials. She was determined to get another letter home as soon as she could. But for Molly, that also meant a night spent struggling over her letters. Her reading was better than her writing, but she found that she had a lot to say to her parents. She missed them.
Finding an unoccupied table, Molly set it up as an impromptu desk. Since she knew that she’d be at work for a while, she also brought over a bowl of stew and her tea. Somehow she always managed to forget to eat until everything got quiet. Deep in concentration, Molly leaned close to the paper and focused on making the letters legible.
