Betty Goes to Church

'The church is below the village,' he told her, and took her arm. And round a bend she saw its squat tower close by. There were other people making their way there too, and when they reached the church she saw that it was already almost full. Thomas made his unhurried way to a pew in the front, stopping to greet people he knew and introduce her, but presently she had time to glance around her. The church was small, rather cold, but scented with the evergreens and holly and Christmas flowers which decorated it. She liked it, and she enjoyed the service, simple and peaceful.
