Umber (52.3 — Miss Brigid Talks to Sioban)

Miss Brigid continued: “We moved the bed from the window to another part of the living room. We did as much as we could to make her better. Miss Vera even brought home a kitten, which Oleander named Fluffy Ruffles. The little girl’s spirits have gradually improved; her body just can’t seem to recover.
“The doctor checked in on her just this morning. He told Miss Vera that the rheumatic fever had damaged Oleander’s heart. The only way she will survive is if she leaves Laramie and moves to a lower elevation.”
“Well, Sister,” I heard the mirror say to Brigid, “you’d better start packing.”
But Bridgid had better think twice about taking advice from a talking mirror, who are known to be untrustworthy.
