Dad could be gruff, and was many times, but he never lied to me that I know of. There is security in knowing what you face, however hard that truth is. Now that Daddy had done her dirty work and dropped the bomb, Mom took the floor. She informed us that we had a good life here, that we were lucky to have been saved from the world before the weight of sins brought it all to a hellish end; according to Father John’s visions, our sect would be saved by God from the cataclysm soon to befall all of mankind.
IT HAD BEEN about three weeks since my encounter with Father John and still no parents in sight, but that day I was to be reunited, albeit briefly, with a glimpse of one of my older sisters for the first time since arriving in Quebec. Initially, I didn’t recognize her, as she so seamlessly blended in with the “flock” that passed my station, where I stood on a stool at a sink full of dirty dishes. The religious there, the nuns, wore what I still believe to be one of the most beautiful and colorful habits I’ve seen.
The nun in charge of the group grabbed my collar and took me directly to Soeur Marie Gerard, muttering that I was a disrespectful girl, full of the devil. It was not the last time I’d be informed that I was in league with Satan. Why, he seemed to follow me wherever I went, according to those in the know. Apparently, I even slept like a devil. I turned and squirmed in my sleep. I threw off my covers, and my nightgown sometimes moved precipitously up my legs. Soeur Marie Gerard pointed out that none of the other girls slept like I did.
