Thank you, Papa Kitty and Poe! I am intrigued that you chose compassion as the test answer. I wrote the story thinking of friendship but now I think compassion is perhaps the better answer. Evelyn and I, in spite of all our differences, have immense compassion for one another. In fact, now that I consider it, I don’t know that I’ve ever had a friend who showed more compassion for me, and I hope she feels the same about me. Thank you for that insight.
