Letters to a Sister
November 2, 2011
How are you, dear sister? I have heard that your new child is healthy and completely normal. I too have had a child, and healthy she is, but, I am grieved to say, normal she is not. She has a small growth on the inside of her foot, almost like another toe. Please sister; this is my hour of need. Help me. If the Inspector finds out that she is not normal, I will surely have to leave Waknuk, and my child will surely die. Please, let us switch children, only till I get a normalcy certificate. All babies appear the same when they are freshly born. Nobody will notice, especially the inspector. This is my third mutated child, and I couldn’t bear to lose another. If my husband finds out, he will surely leave me, and I will be left with nothing. Please, help me. I will repay you!
From, Your Own Dear Sister
P.S. Don’t tell Joseph. He won’t understand and will surely take it wrongly.
This is my response to your letter written on November the 2nd. I am shocked! How dare you even imply that I help you house a Deviation, a thing that is not in the true image of God Almighty?! I am thoroughly disgusted and ashamed that you are my sister. I have told Joseph, and he is going down the road now to tell the Inspector then your husband. If you dare come into my house, you will be beaten along with your Blasphemy sent by the devil. You disgrace our family. I say again, I will not help you. You are no longer my sister.
Faithful follower of God, and wife to Joseph Strorm
If you will not help me, than there is nothing left for me here. Good-bye.
Forever Your Sister,
