Inside this Book – A WASH OF SLEET FELL on the buildings of the Guardian Angels Orphanage, blurring their outlines, making the place look hazy and gaslit, like the cover of some cheap gothic novel: A Dram of Poison. Secrets Can’t Be Kept. I passed by the larger building that housed the older children and went right for the baby house, the way I always did. In the baby house, the cribs were lined up in tidy rows, like gravestones. Maybe that’s why I was so drawn to them, little cradles of life. The babies—chubby baby faces peeking out from the blankets, new baby eyes screwed up tight—slept like kittens, all shivers and fits. They cycled their legs and gnawed on their fists as if their hands had been smeared in honey. I visited each crib in turn. Hello, you baby, I said. Good morning, cupcake! Like everyone else, sometimes they heard me, sometimes they didn’t. When they heard me, their tiny bud lips opened and closed and opened again, as if to tell me how hungry they were. And though I didn’t get hungry in the way they did, I knew hunger. I knew how it hurt. Soon, I told them. Soon the nuns will come, and they will feed you, and you won’t be hungry anymore.
Inside this book –Thirteen Doorways, Wolves Behind Them All PDF Book by Laura Ruby – THE MONTHS PASSED IN A haze of falling snow and Christmas lights and bloody battles in faraway towns with names that caught in the throat. I talked to the babies in the baby house and watched Frankie as she turned fifteen. When I wasn’t at the orphanage, I wandered the streets of the city with people lumbering like bears under the weight of their coats. Or I attended the picture show where the 4-F boys went to forget their shame, too sickly or disabled for war. One morning, as a deeper chill wrung tears from the ragged souls waiting on line at the soup kitchens, I got hungry for a different kind of story. I walked the streets, not bothering with the sidewalks. The cars drove right through me as if I were nothing, but I caught their thoughts like butterflies in a net.
