The Torture Chronicles, Vol. 3
To fully appreciate the extend of this child's suffering, understand that Scarlett has a wheat allergy. Or so assumes the Matron because when the doctor suggested a blood test to determine said system malfunction, Scarlett nearly threw herself out the window and the test was never done. Instead, the doctor suggested Scarlett abstain from wheat for a week.
Tummy aches? Gone!
But everyone knows how prisoners of war starve and suffer. . .
Mom, Dad & Merrick,
Last night we went camping, and we had the BEST BREAD EVER! We have to figure out how to make it! (bake bread! Ack, ack, ack went the Matron, who opens boxes for anything more
complex than a cookie)
I will you more about camp when I get home (tomorrow!) but this morning, me, Lia Allie, and (the counselor) Ellen missed like half the breakfast.
So far almost every meal has been wheat except for the potatoes and chicken.
Sunday and Monday nights I cried myself to sleep. I am looking forward to Saturday.
Here she, suffering.
Looking particularly miserable here, hmmmm?
And: he's alive!
