Chapter 2

The two sisters live contentedly for several months. The house is in Haa, a little place close to the border.

Summer passes quietly into autumn. Harvesting the barley by hand, stripping the stalks between two sticks as is the custom, keeps them busy for many weeks. The mountain winds blow colder, and the oak and walnut leaves are turning red and brown.

"Well, you're getting bigger every day."

"Tesla, I've got to tell you something. This baby may not be Gendun's. One day in the spring I was sunning myself up the hill, and a traveler came and raped me. He was a big strong hairy man. He was so fast and so powerful, there was nothing I could do, nothing. You have to believe me. I couldn't stop him no matter what I tried. Do you understand?"

"Well, I guess so. You and your headstrong ways! What do you mean, sunning yourself. Naked? Defying the gods! Can you blame a man? Does Gendun know anything at all about this?"

"Of course not. You can't expect a husband to accept such a thing. He would be crushed. And it would be even worse if the baby is not his. Do you see what I mean?"

"Yes, right. But how will you know? A baby is a baby. The little thing can hardly tell you who his father was!"

"I know, I know. But that's the biggest reason I'm here. If there is anything different about this baby, anything at all, I will not keep it. You'd have to help me do something with it, Tesla. And Gendun must never know."
