"Greed Killer Her" by D. M. Larson

(Mouth drops open)

Sister Katie? But I just saw her...

(Near tears)

I've known her since we were young girls. 
We went to school together. 
I always thought she was crazy for taking a vow of poverty and she thought I was crazy for vowing to get rich. 

Now she's gone.

(Pause. Starting to get angry)

What was she doing out here this late at night?

She was doing her charity work wasn't she? 
Collecting money for the poor.

How could she be so stupid?

(Upset but trying to cover up)

It was greed that killed her.

(She fights back tears)

She had to have more money. It's never enough for her. 
It wouldn't matter if I gave her a dollar or a thousand dollars. 
She'd still want more.

What do I care? She never did anything for me. 
I did everything for myself. Useless beggars.
