14. Carla Trodden

Carla Trodden stood at the Gates and stared through them. Saint Peter asked her if she needed assistance.

“No,” she said.  “I was just looking.”

“Do you want to go in?”

“Oh, no,” she replied.  “They won’t let me in here. You can be sure of that.”

“I could let you in.”

“But you would get into trouble!”

“No, I will not get into trouble.  And you can be quite sure of that.”

“They would never let a person like me in,” she said.

“Look, Carla.  Just beyond the gate is a chair.  It’s a nice, comfy chair, with lots of padding and lace on the back, exactly like the one your Aunt Ruth had when you were little. It has a sewing table next to it with a pincushion, scissors, and everything else you’d need. They made it just for you. It even has your name embroidered on it.”

Carla looked and saw it was true.
