MAGGIE I'm not evil. I just don't play by the rules. But who does, really? Anyone who says they do are just hypocrites. I'm labeled as a rebel because I'm honest about it. My parents try to straighten me out by dragging me to church-- boring! But when I listen to pastor Kaine Cross speak, I can't take my eyes off of him. I know he doesn't play by the rules, either. I can see it in the way he looks at me. There's only one sin I haven't committed. And I want it to be with him. I want my pastor to be my first.
KAINE What's more shameful than a divorced pastor? A pastor lusting after a 19-year-old girl. As a man of God, my community holds me to a higher standard. I have responsibilities as a spiritual leader. I must resist temptation. No matter how sweet and mouthwatering it may be. I have to rebuild my soiled reputation and redeem myself in the eyes of my congregation. But Maggie's curves are tight, ripe and impossible to ignore. At the end of the day, I'm already a sinner.
