It had been three months since Samuel and Rosemary met, and they were becoming the best of friends. They didn’t really consider themselves to be dating or in a relationship. Samuel hadn’t expressively asked Rose out yet. But they actively sought time together to meet socially, and Rose started attending the Christian Fellowship meetings. They talked about a lot of things, and enjoyed how they both sharpened each other’s love and understanding of the Holy Scriptures.
Rose was going to be an activist. She knew it. She had a passion for women’s causes and speaking out against all forms of abuse and injustice. She had her own personal abuse story, which she hadn’t yet shared with Samuel, though.
Samuel knew he was falling in love with Rose, but he was still praying about whether or not to ask her out and make what they had official. He didn’t want anything that would steal his focus from God, and he also wanted to focus on his studies and pass his exams with flying colours. Unlike his brother, Samson, he wasn’t very good at multi-tasking.
But he really liked Rose, and mostly, he loved her passion for God and her heart for activism…
