Sister Alice was troubled. She mulled it over in her head once more. The
orphanage of Solancia was her life and that life was slowly dying out. Every

fond of you and was quick-witted, strong and kind as I recall. You should leave
tomorrow at first light."
On the subsequent journey Avril pondered her feelings. There had been a mutual
