Early spring. Shooting stars for three days straight, odd, loud, sharp thunder. Rain for three more days afterwards. Grateful for the fresh water, we praised Yah.
When Old Ying died, the devil did not take his corpse. It happens sometimes, so we thought nothing of it.
Then Juni’s baby died and did not turn. Considering the shooting stars, the thunder, the rain might be Signs…we wondered: had Yah finally vanquished the devil and his plague?
We killed a prisoner to be sure. He also did not turn. It will be a strange world indeed where the dead do not walk.
