C U L8R: Characters

Todd Stansifer (POV) -- 30/M, working on Ph.D. in management at Maryland State University in Silver Spring. Shy guy, not prone to sharing, the anonymity of online chat is refreshing/shocking to him. Answered an altar call (2 weeks before the story starts) at church with Jasmine Menard -- "occasional" churchgoer in his background/family . GF Paige ignores/does not treat him well, but he takes it again and again because where else will he go to have as good an opportunity -- she is wealthy, attractive, young, etc . . .

Paige Turner -- 23/F Senior at Maryland State, psych major. Spent two years "finding herself" after high school, became interested in new Age spirituality, trying to "be a better person." Youngest of three girls, sisters Sharon (Shar) -- 35, and Meredith (Mer) -- 32.

Kip Turner -- 60/M, Paige's father. Likes Todd, sees him as a potential heir to his publishing business -- with three girls, and the other two have married duds, Todd is his only potential heir with potential. Sharon "married well" to an architect/artist, Jerome Winchester, but he has no interest in business. Meredith is living with a loser, whose name is never mentioned in his presence. Has a respectable marriage to Rose, 57/F.

Jasmine Menard (POV) -- 20/F, junior, lit major, has some money in the family, Paige's roommate and best friend. They met two years ago in Philosophy class . . . this is their 2nd year as dormmates now, living in West Court. She is a strong religious Christian believer, and now sees herself as a discipler/encourager of Todd. She goes to the Vineyard on Georgia Avenue. 2 weeks ago, Paige stood the two of them up at church, but he and jasmine attended, and Todd answered the altar call.
