Never Ceese by Sue Dent
Chapter 10 by Krystal

At Mama’s bedroom, Penny asks Richard to sit down with her on the bed. Penny admits that she is very sick, cancer in fact, and that Ceese can’t help her. She’s kept him in the dark for so long thinking it would be easier, now that Ceese is here. Richard, distraught, doesn’t understand how Ceese being around makes any difference. Penny explains that he has to take care of Ceese, but Richard assumes she’s joking. Richard tries to explain to Penny that it makes no sense, Ceese hates him and he isn’t exactly fond of her.

Questions for consideration:

Were you shocked by Penny’s illness?

What do you think Richard meant when he said last time ‘it didn’t work for me’?

Did you notice any foreshadowing in this chapter? If so, what?
