Waking up she thought about everything that had happened in the last few days. Having so much money in her hands and giving it away. Then nearly getting killed. Watching a man die in front of her and being carried away by the reapers to hell. Her fondest memory was seeing Sam his happiness at being able to solve his murder and save the love of his life before seeing the light and going to heaven.
"God you have given me a second chance I've done some really horrible things and now seeing your Glory I want to change. Please help me use this gift to help people. From this time forward I will use my gift to help people find closure and move on. " She said then rolled over and got out of bed.
Her older sister hearing her yelled, "Oda Mae who are you talking too?"
"God." She replied slipping on her hot pink satin robe and fluffy pink slippers then opened her door.
"Now she is talking to God. First this Sam guy now this. We need to get her some help." Her older sister said to the middle sister sitting at the formica table with coffee in front of her.
"But this could be good we could make money this way. You know how many people would pay to talk to God." She said just as Oda Mae entered the room.
"Stop. Both of you. No more schemes or frauds. I can hear the dead talk but no I cannot hear or see God. But he has given me this gift and I plan to use it the right way to help people find closure and move on both on this plane and the next." Oda May chastised helping herself to a cup of coffee then sitting down at the table.
"But Oda Mae how will we afford anything. I mean we need to make money." One sister complained fanning her formidable chest as if she were about to faint.
Such a drama queen Oda Mae thought and they say I'm the fraud. "Relax I haven't worked out all the details but I will. Let me just think about it and have a darn cup of coffee I just woke up. It has been one hell of a week for me, both emotionally and personally."
The phone rang and Oda Mae ignored the ring letting one of her sisters answer it.
"Hello. Yes she is here. Hold on." She said then turned holding the phone as if it were something rotten. "Oda Mae it is your friend Molly."
Oda Mae jumped up and grabbed the receiver before it hit the floor her sister releasing it before she got her hand on it. "Molly what is wrong?"
"Oda Mae. Hi. Nothing it is just a friend of mine just called me. Her daughter was killed in a violent car crash, a hit and run; and I thought you might be able to help her like you did me. " Molly said.
"I can try. I am not sure what needs to be done." Oda Mae said puzzled.
"Well the other driver left a note at the scene that said 'Sorry' so it may be possible that before the girl died she saw the driver. It may help find who did it and the police can catch him or her. My friend offered to pay for your services." Molly said.
"Well as I said we can try. I will need to see if she will talk to me, the girl. I would like to meet her Mom too then I can try touching something that belonged to her daughter. I'm not worried about money." Oda Mae said then received a slap on her arm. "Ouch."
"What? Well how about we meet at noon and we can go to see her. I know this morning she is really busy with details but she wanted to meet you as soon as possible." Molly said.
"Fine do you want to meet at your place?" She asked.
"Yes and we can leave from here. I have a piece of pottery I'm working on and need to finish but I will be ready."
"I'll see you there." Oda Mae said then hung up. When she turned around her older sister was right behind her.
"What do you mean not worried about money?" She yelled.
"Relax. I'm getting paid but I'm not talking money at the moment if I can't help I don't want the money. A mother lost a child and I told you I'm not scamming anyone anymore." Oda Mae yelled back then turned and walked out of the room.
