Sarah could hear Mrs Thornton's practical shoes in the hallway. They made a kind of squishing sound. They stopped squishing outside the door to the long room with all the beds. Most of the other girls were asleep or pretending. So Sarah clamped her eyes shut and pulled the stiff sheet up to her chin. After a bit. She could just feel Mrs Thornton standing at the end of her bed. Sarah, do you feel like crying tonight? Your first night at Hanford House? That's fine. If you feel like crying, you just go right ahead. Shed a tear, But do be careful, won't you? The tear dogs will come and worry at your eyes. Rough? Yes. Wait. What was that? Rough roof? Sounds like the tear dogs. And they're always thirsty. Good night, Sara. And welcome to your new home.
