This is the “Charm Gate”…which legend says anyone who touches the gate walks away charmed. Well, Ray-Ray wasn’t for sure if she understood what charmed meant…and she really didn’t believe anyone when they told her it was a good thing. She thought they might be pulling her leg…not that we do that very often. Yeah, right.
So, she’s torn. She wants to touch it but is afraid to. Rachel has had this inner conflict since she was born. She really wants to do something but then becomes deathly afraid to. Now keep in mind, this is a child that will embrace a homeless person who hasn’t bathed in months without flinching…but touching a “charm gate” is another subject altogether.
Upon many reassurances that the “charm gate” wasn’t a bad thing…she touched it.
We’ll see what happens.
