“Yeah, I can just imagine how badass dangerous I looked holding two children in
my arms.” • • • It took them a good twenty minutes to get there, never going faster
than twenty miles an hour. The rain had slowed to a drizzle but a lowlying gray
fog blanketed the ground. The air was bonenumbing cold, pregnant with more
rain. The children continued to sleep all the way back to Katie's house, a neat
twostory with a wide porch built in the forties. It was just outside Jessborough
proper, ...

Unfortunately children aren't allowed to sleep in the Rooms. We're free but not
that free. I could pretend to fall asleep. That way Daddy will have to carry me back
. Or I could beg for another page of Pinocchio. Or I could do both. First beg for
another page and then pretend to fall asleep. Daddy believes that with children
you have to say yes. That's lucky for me. Very lucky. Not all children are so lucky. I
beg for another page and he agrees. I told you! Daddy was away for three

When I woke up on Friday, August 26, 2005 at my usual time, 5:00am, I thanked
the good lord for keepin' us all through the night while we slept even though the
gun shots rang constantly all through the night. I immediately took my pain
medication which I kept by my bedside. You see I was healing from a broken leg
that turned crooked, like a C shape. This caused me to walk with a painful limp for
two years. I got up and checked on my foster child who was still sleeping. Ifixed a
cup of ...

Rain clattered at windows. Drops hit the patio table in a salvo of violent bangs.
Heaven's bullets. A sound like war. As if the earth had been invaded from above.
Take no prisoners. Batter the house into the ground . . . Balls of water exploded
against a sign on the wall until the force of it dislodged the board ... The vicious
crack of rain against glass had roused the children in the dormitory. ... He'd only
been in the boys' dormitory three days when the rest took to sleeping in the

The hall was furnished with a mahogany table, large wooden armchairs, a
musical clock and blue and white vases. Every night, Autumn Girl would put the
children to bed and hum to them the lullaby she had learned in the country until
they were lulled to sleep. Then she would get everything ready for her mistress.
In winter she would fill the foot-warmer with hot water, then fold the baby's
diapers and put them under the cotton-padded quilt to keep them warm. In
summer she would fan ...

Beautiful place, can't argue with that. And big. Lot used to be owned by the city.
One spring, Ford took it over. Borrowed a bulldozer, cleared it, had all the little
children plant flowers. After that, all that spring and summer, never a minute when
there wasn't a dozen children in the garden, day and night. Put up a tent, had 'em
sleeping there. They called it a 'sleepin.' Pressuring the city to give it to him.
Mayor had plans for that site, but who's gonna send marshals to evict little

Mrinalini moved her sleeping children to a safe distance and opened the window.
A rush of wind and rain came bursting in, cooling it in an instant. Mrinalini lay
down in the draught, letting wind and rain stream over her heat-racked, sleep-
starved, exhausted body. Ah! Peace! Peace at last. Weary eyelids weighed down
with lead, slipped over burning eyes heavy as stones. Barely had her head
touched the pillow than she sank into a blessed sleep, her sleeping children
