Obscurity, The Sixth Chapter

In which we discover three men with rather nefarious intentions.

We last read The Fifth Chapter, in which the widow entered the sacrament of confession.

Séverine sat alone in the convent chapel for the remainder of the day. She felt, for the first time, some sense of peace, and so she wrapped herself up in her faith and knelt on that chapel floor in prayer.
