Katie Beiler was always on the outside of community life. The community was a large one and skirted a local Englischer village, and a large disused quarry. Once a week she would delight in going with Isaac to the local village to get supplies and watching the Englischers go about their daily routine, and if time, maybe even having a coffee with Isaac before returning home again. Katie also loved taking long walks out of the community and through the woods to the quarry edge. She loved the contrast between the dense dark wooded area and the huge open space of the old quarry. One day as she walked out through the woods to the quarry edge she heard a sobbing, and on reaching the open sheer edge of the quarry she found Eli standing on the edge of a large drop, sobbing as if he had no hope left. Katie sternly assured him of Gods love for him.... And also of her own feelings for him. Would Eli step away from the edge? Could they find approval for their relationship from the elders?
