The Church Gossip
Agnes was the church gossip and although many disapproved of this, they feared her enough to keep silent.
But, she made a mistake when she accused Jim of being a drunk after she saw his truck parked in front of the town's bar, saying, "Anyone who saw it there, knows what he was doing."
Upon overhearing this, Jim stared at her for a moment and then walked away. He didn't explain, defend himself, or deny it. He said nothing.
But that evening, Jim parked his pickup in front of Agnes' house, and left it there, and the neighbors saw it parked there all night.
