|Panel 1: Ursula
is telling the story of how she met Casey. We see the scene as it plays
out. A younger Ursula is sitting at a table in Tim Hortons.|
Ursula [in a caption]: "I had exactly one dollar and twenty-five cents in my pocket. I went into Tim Hortons and bought a doughnut. I didn't know what else to do."
Panel 2: A ragged Casey Mulligan with long, messy hair sits down at Ursula's table.
Ursula [in a caption]: "Then a guy sat down at my table. He...this is one of the parts you won't like. He looked homeless. The only thing clean or groomed about him was his green jacket."
Panel 3: Ursula stands looking down at Casey.
Ursula [in a caption]: I got up to leave, but he stopped me. He said he wanted to make a deal with me...a deal that would help both of us. He knew my name; he knew everything about me."
Panel 4: We are back in the office with Ursula, Marie, and Barbara.
Barbara: An excellent reason to trust a mysterious stranger dressed in rags.
Ursula [jerks a thumb at Barbara]: Seriously, is there an "off" switch on this thing?
Alt-Text: Hey, if I met a mysterious stranger dressed in rags who knew everything about me, I would totally do whatever he said. I've read a lot of fairy tales.
