It’s Friday. We twelve have been here all week. Julie proposed yesterday that we each say a prayer for guidance in the challenge before us.
The room is rather shabby but after last night’s storm, the light is good. The chairs are comfortable. The refrigerator is stocked with bottled water. The large speaker was initially distracting with court pages, but Lenny found out how to turn it off.
At 10a the vote is ten to three to convict. By noon, it’s six and six. By four, it’s unanimous to acquit.
We buzz the bailiff. She leads us into the courtroom.
Rochelle Wisoff-Fields is the inviting host of Friday Fictioneers.
