It seems to me that the snake is always going for the pure and innocent. First Eve and now Ruth May. I am as paralysed as she looks after I see she has been bitten. How is this fair, after all of the times our family had narrowly escaped tragedy this happens, we should have left the first day we arrived. Mother is back to defending her daughters instead of playing her part, and Father is well I have never known what truly goes through his head but he appears impassive. Never before have I felt evil such as that. The indifference of human life, he was only sad because she was not babtized. This could make me sick.
