3. Chapter 3

 

As I walk through the door I see Beatrice already home, "Why are you home early?" I ask her. "I got sick. You?" she asks as she starts to wash the vegetables, "Same" I lie to her. We give each other suspicious looks just as Caleb enters the kitchen, "What happened to you guys today? Where did you go after your test?" Caleb asks us. "We both got sick so they sent us home early" Beatrice tells him, "Did you finish your test?" he questions. I nod my head as I begin to help chop the vegetables, "What was your result?" Caleb asks, "What was yours?" I question. And they both smile.

"Why did you just leave without telling anybody?" Dad asks as we just began to eat dinner, "We were sick" I tell him. "Evelyn, Beatrice. I don't think you understand the level of scrutiny we're under. They're doing everything they can to discredit us right now" Dad tells us, "Who is?" Beatrice questions. "Erudite. They believe that they should be governing the factions, not us" Mum answers, "So we have to be careful right now, okay" Dad says, "Even Marcus is under attack" Mum adds. "For what?" I ask, "It's an old accusation. That he mistreated his son and that's why the boy defected" Dad informs us, "Is that true?" Beatrice asks. "No" Dad says, "Of course not. Children defect for all kinds of reasons" Mum says and I glance down to see my reflection on the back of my spoon.

After dinner finished, Beatrice bought in the dishes, Caleb washed up and I dried them. "Don't take too long in here, you three need good sleep for tomorrow" Dad tells us, the three of us stop what we are doing and look at our father. "I um...we love you" dad says. He comes over to Beatrice and I and embraces us, giving us both a kiss on the forehead, as Mother hugs Caleb. They then swap, Mother coming to us and Father going to Caleb. "I'm so proud of you girls" Mum whispers to us before kissing us on the cheek and leaving the kitchen with Dad. "Evelyn, Beatrice" Caleb call our names, I wipe a tear away before looking at him. "Tomorrow when we choose, you have to think of the family" he tells us and we nod our head in agreement, "But you also have to think of yourself" he says.
