It works better than she expects, honestly. She's not sure they would have become friends naturally- it's probably telling that they weren't, before- but they've got enough shared history under their belt by this point that it hardly matters. Everyone has the occasional conflict, but they're rare and they're mostly good about telling the group beforehand. (Okay, so everyone except Alli is great about it, and Alli has a memory like a sieve.) But Alli had last minute detention last week, so she's feeling guilty enough to arrive early. Almost early. A few minutes early, anyway.
She's amused but not particularly surprised to see Emma and Jenny already there when she arrives. Emma's usually early, since she lives in Avalon and all, but she and Jenny look like they've been there for a while; they've got half empty cups in front of them and Jenny's most of the way through a cookie. Alli grins and joins them. "Even when I'm early, I'm late. Frimeuses, vous deux. May here yet?"
May opens the card.
Careful, cramped writing on both sides of the note detail the things she told her priest, what Father O'Brien has told her of his interactions with the priests, and many more apologies from both her and Father O'Brien. Father O'Brien is not important enough to know much in the church, but as far as he could tell the whole incident chalks up to well-meaning idiocy more so than malice.
Good for the well-meaning idiots, but May kinda doesn't buy abducting a teenage girl from her home to borderline torture her as a zero-malice act. Whatever, she's not going to hassle Jenny on that point.
