Little Houses

What’s a mass-a-cre? Mama stops ironing and asks what am I reading. Little House on the Prairie. I have to know what it is before the Indians do it to the Ingalls. They don’t, but then there’s The Long Winter. Monique Lebel and I fight over who gets to be Blind Mary, floundering through the drifts, hanging on Laura’s arm. Monique’s other game has us all trample out the floor plan of a convent in the snow. She says she’s the bad nun, who wants to do it with the priest. Do what, I wonder, dreamily mitten-polishing my little cell.
