Father Flanagan Will Not Be Joining Us

“You heard that Tommy’s ma went to the cops?”

“They won’t do shit to a priest. Besides, the little fucker’s probably lying.”

“He’s not.”

“Yeah? How do you know?”

“Because Father tried the same thing with me.”


“Swear to Jesus. Midnight mass last year. Father asked me to stay after.”

“Holy shit. What happened?”

“He told me to drink up the communion wine if I wanted. I got a creepy feeling and told him I needed to use the john. I slipped out the vestry door and went home.”

“So nothing happened.”

“Only because I’m not a dumbass like Tommy.”
