Never Ceese by Sue Dent
Chapter 18 by Angela
Edited by Krystal & Rose

Over the course of a week Ceese has spent her time pulling Marissa’s into her fold. Looking for Ceese, Richard heads to Marissa’s room and hears voices. After he enters and tries to talk to Marissa he sees movement underneath the bed; bending down to look he finds Ceese hiding. Marissa suddenly blurts out that Ceese is afraid of flying. After cajoling her, Richard finally succeeds in having her come out from under the bed and says he has something to show her in Mama’s garden.

They head to the garden and Richard tells Ceese to close her eyes and put her arms around his neck. Ceese first adjusts the cross that hangs from her neck and proceeds to wrap her arms around him. He reaches down to grab her legs, hoisting her piggyback style, onto him. As he levitates into the air, Ceese tenses, but they land safely on solid ground. Ceese opens her eyes and realizes they are on the other side of the garden wall. Amazed, she wants Richard to levitate again, only this time she will keep her eyes open.

Questions for consideration:

How do you feel about Richard and Ceese’s growing friendship?

Do you think Ceese’s action to call the pack on Peter was an overreaction?

Do you think the pack killed Peter Drummond?

Never Ceese by Sue Dent
Chapter 19 by Angela, Krystal, Rose

After Rodney, Kyle and Josh arrive at the airport, Josh is nearly jerked off the curb as the taxi speeds off which amuses Kyle enough to mock him and Rodney tells them to stop their nonsense. Rodney questions Kyle’s excessive face jewelry for they are supposed to be inconspicuous. Kyle removes the chain that hangs from between his nose and ear and then points out that Josh has dreads. Rodney ignores him, not wanting to start an argument and instructs Josh to pick up the rental car.

Questions for consideration:

What do you think are Rodney’s plans for Richard and Ceese?

What do you think of Ceese’s negative affinity to elevators and other modern day technologies?

Were you surprised Ceese knew nothing of gay and lesbian relationships?
