As you finally broach the topic of setting out solo, there's a sequence of reactions from the family. It starts with the calm before the storm, an air of hushed incomprehension. Then the eyebrows go up a fraction. And then all hell breaks loose. There are cackles of disbelief, wails of lament. <em>How can our daughter even think this way? Could a demon have possessed her?</em> Hope is reposed in divine forces. <em>God will help us, he will cure her of these unholy thoughts.</em>
