“Esther, Esther, Esther did you hear?”
“They say the soldiers are coming for us. Salamatu just told me now that she heard one of the men say so”
“Don’t mind Salamatu, she always ferries rumors like a fly carries dung”. I don’t want her to get us into trouble again.
Wasn’t she the one that refused to recite the prayers?. She earned us all harsh whips from the men”
“That’s true. But Esther, do you think they will ever come for us?”
