(In Mr Roland's house, Bimbo sits by the fire staring at it like as If she imagined it was wide enough to consume her).
Bimbo: (Itching her head) I need a cigarette or something more
Mr Roland: I don't smoke and I see no reason why a young girl like you would do that.
Bimbo:  am an addict, I drink and I smoke  proper
Mr Roland: I can see I have another patient,You must be one of those rich kids  who come to the safe house in the woods to recover from addiction.
Bimbo: (reluctantly) yeah,yeah I took a overdose and I got out of control
so my parents brought me here,its been 10 months now.
Mr Roland: 10 months and you're still not clean, you are the 5th patient have rescued from the woods in 3 months and I must confess you are really entangled.
Bimbo: you are trying to say that you're some sort of doctor and you handle  people like me.
Mr Roland: You need something more than the safe house you need to be saved.
Bimbo: Don't tell me I need Jesus have heard about that a million Times
Mr Roland: you need Jesus. If you've heard a million times and you still don't have him.
Then it means you need to be told a million times more.
We inherited the nature of sin but we can choose not to nuture it but you'll only find the power to overcome when you accept and believe in the saving power of Christ.
He alone can root out this nature of self all by himself for he gave himself to abolish self.
The safe house is not enough you need to be saved.
I'll leave you to reflect call me when you make up your mind.

(Mr Roland stood up to take his leave but surprisingly was held back by Bimbo)
Bimbo: I'll do it, I'll do it  I always wished I never started out on this part, funny enough I don't have an excuse I had everything I wanted even those I don't need.I no longer want to be ENTANGLED
 I want to be saved.
Mr Roland: you have made the right decision daughter. Let's pray.

THE END.
