When her eyes had adjusted, and a gray shadow of a sleeping girl had formed, she climbed the stairs in the dark. She recalled Sarah Close whispering to her in the black of one long Refuge night that dreams were restless and scattery and sometimes seeped from one sleeper to another in close proximity, or to one whose heart was tied to yours by God.
She swept the girl into her arms, pressed her awkwardly against her, difﬁcult to hold the weight and sprawling limbs. “Mamma,” murmured the blinking girl. ” Constance pulled the child’s contorted hand from between their tightly pressed bodies. ” The girl’s face changed, and she sobbed slightly, repeated her pathetic plea, “My hand,” before closing her eyes.
