15. Finally Asleep

He stood there, in the doorway of the kitchen, his voice ringing out the last note of the song. I picked up the dishes and a rag, and hunched down over a barrel. I began to scrub the plates. In silence, I finished the last of the plates, and was surprised to see George standing behind me. I yawned and realized how truly tired I was. And this was only the first day. 


I led George to the guest bedroom, and blew out all of the candles, except one which I brought back into my room. I shed my dress and corset, and put on my nightgown. I wrote a paragraph in my diary, which I put back on my bedside table, and crawled into my bed. I blew out the candle and pulled my bed curtains. I immediately fell asleep without even enough time to think about my prayers.
