I think they could sense that it would please her if they were mean to me, so they picked on me all the time. Some of the other girls followed their lead, and I found myself with only a few friends. Luckily, I wasn’t someone who liked to hang around in groups, but obviously I found it hard being picked on. Mary had left the convent – she’d only been in for a short-term stay and had now gone back to her family. So I was really happy when my little friend Josephine moved up to juniors. I taught her all the rules, just as Loretta had done for me.
Came the summons from the other side, in a tone of voice that would have sent a shiver down anyone’s spine, let alone a child’s. Loretta trembled at the sound of it. In we went. Sister Lucius closed the door behind us. Leather-bound hardbacks lined the shelves, and small piles of books lay neatly stacked on wooden tables. Along one wall stood rows of filing cabinets and a long carved desk. Behind the desk, hunched over a book, sat a nun of obvious importance. After several minutes she raised her head and gave us a cold, appraising look.
In the chapel I was told to stand on a chair and lean over the font. I was tiny for my age and could hardly reach up that far. Mrs Montgomery, a part-time teacher at the convent, stood up as my godmother. The priest chanted and crossed himself, and the nuns prayed along with him. Suddenly, water was pouring down the side of my face and onto my clothes. The priest pushed me forward, knocking my head against the font, and continued pouring water over me. The top of my dress was soaking wet. Now they were trying to drown the Devil out of me.
