While she speaks, a weak and wet kitten hobbles in, sores on its back, and sniffs at my feet. A scrawny chicken pokes his head in the door then scuttles off. The children wait patiently for their turn to speak. I feel something at the back of my neck; the oldest daughter, Rose, has leaned over to touch my blond hair. Then she touches my forearm. They want to feel my hair and skin, which feels and looks different from their own. I smile and give her unspoken permission by my playful response, trying to “catch” her in the act by grabbing her hand. She smiles back.

As we return to our world, Kato's smile would cheer me, and Justine's face would haunt me for days to come.
