Chapter 3:
I can't stand this life. Yesterday,the slave owners beat up a family I know called the Relianeses. Included were Mr.and Mrs. Relianes, 5-year old Maria, and 1- year old Amelie. When they were seen again, Mr. and Mrs. Relianes clothes were blood-soaked in certain spots. Maria's knees were bleeding, and even Amelie's clothes had blood on them. She was crying herself out, while Mrs. Relianes was trying to calm her. Only when I gave Amelie a big hug did she quiet. Why were they beaten? They were out of food for Amelie, and she was hungry. They spent a bit of extra time trying to feed Amelie cornmeal. They were 5 minutes late to work in the morning. Carrie would have been furious. Some delightful news, though: Sorano's doorbell rang yesterday, and when she answered, there was a basket with two twin baby girls in it! Rest in comments!

There were two name tags, one for each baby. Both were written in crude shorthand. One said Reva, the other Rene. Sorano's family decided to keep them for now. From her dad's guesses, the babies were 8 months old. Sorano showed me the babies from outside the fence. They were sooooo cute!
Next day:
I had a dream last night. It was June and I, side by side, yelling the same word over and over:
Joan! Joan...Joan!
I'm really, truly afraid. End of Chapter 3!
