Chapter 1Wherein we meet Asterisk, a young woman at a crossroad in her life, and Meme (she requests that you pronounce it "may-may"), a Young Woman who has a few of the answers Asterisk is looking for.
Asterisk (on phone): Hey Meme, what's up?
Meme: Oh, I'm just hanging around listening to 1D (One Direction).
A: Do you have a minute?
M: I've already paused the music - what's your prob?
A: Well...I'm thinking about getting a tattoo - but I can't decide where to have it, or what it should say. I want it to be something classy - like a cool bible verse, and since I know you read the bible, I thought you could help me pick one.
M: ...um...well, I do know some awesome bible verses, but have you really considered what you're doing?
A: What do you mean?
M: You do realize that tattoos are permanent?
A: Yeah, but I'm sure I'll always love it! Besides, it's really pretty mainstream to get a tattoo nowadays - everyone does it.
M: I do know a bible verse that talks about doing stuff to your body.
A: I knew I could count on you!
M: Let me look it up...here it is “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are” (
A: Oh! I never thought of my body as a temple of God. Do you really think God will destroy me for getting a tattoo?
M: I don't know, but I DO know that if God doesn't want me to do something, then I won't do it.
A: I wouldn't want to do anything "bad"...I guess I'll think it over a little bit more. Thanks for your help. Bye.
M: Call me if you need an ear. Bye.
