Catherine stops working for a second and looks up at him, "Catherine, or Cathy if you must. Only one person besides my parents can call me Cat or Kitty. You are a nice guy, but you aren't her." She resumes working and says "No. This is not how things should have been, just how they are. She was your leader and things fell apart when she died but that does not mean that is how they would have been or how they will stay. This city has been falling for a while, and this is simply another symptom of that. It does not have to stay that way, I believe our generation has the power
to change what is happening, the ability
to bring our city back to life, make it special again." Catherine looks up at the boy, hopeing her pep talk had broken him out of his funk and, perhaps, gotten her other message across.
Thats not getting me anywhere. I was trying to use deceptions secret message function, but that is a sure fail. Either everyone knows what I was trying to say or noone does, I do not remember which.
