Family secrets in the City.

I remember for the first day I realizing that my world as I knew it was about to change. I always wonder why we couldn't be around outsiders. My Father always said that Family the prays, eat, socialize, amongs its maker should have no problem getting into the gates of heaven. My last summer as a little girl was up in 1977. I was nine years old and having the time of my life. Jumping rope, playing jacks, and two square with my smaller sisters. Oh by the way there are 7 girls and 3 boys in my family circle. My older sisters had duties in the house. My older brother job was to watch the fence for outsiders. My Moms job was to keep us on the track with My Fathers way of life. My stepmothers jobs were to keep house and look after the children. On October 10, 1977 I became a women. I remember this clearly, my sister Samatha gave me the key to the attic. I felt like I was recieving a reward. My Mom ran my bath and told me what my new duties were going to be. She give me the number 5 and when I hear the bell ring 5 times to use the key and go into the attic. Well somedays went by I heard the bell several times, like before growing up. I never knew what this meant until I heard it for the first time for me. It was about 2am in the morning I grabbed the key and went to the attics door and opened it. I heard music and talking, I was asked to come up! When I got to the top of the stairs One of my stepmothers give me glass with some red juice and told me to drink it. I drank the juice half way down and my father took my hand and placed it on his shoulder and began to dance with me. I remember being tried and next thing I know its morning and I'm laying in a circle of flowers and candles, I was looking around to see clearly it was very hard to focus my eyes. I looked down at myself and my body was stickie with oils and I had nothing on. I got up and put my robe back on and called out to my Mom. She yelled come down and get ready for school. I'm feel sick! I told my Mom she said just get ready you don't want to upset your Father. So I did. On my way out of the bathroom my second Janice pulled me into the room and ask me was I ok, she began to check me all over. I pulled away! and a asked her what was she doing that for, She said I glad you don't know what went on! Stepmother Nancy was calling for us to come on we were going to be late. When I came home from school that day I went to talk to my Mom about last night. She said I was a very good servent to my Father he was pleased! A week went by and I heard the bell ring two times and I looked and my sister Janice was gone. The next morning I saw my brother wrapping her wrist up with ace bandage. I went on with the days plan, My Father kept us on a stricked schedule. Later that night my three older sister were in the room talking and I came in and sat down. This was the day someone was going to answer me on what goes on in the attic. My sister Samatha closed the door to the room and told me  our Father would have her wash him all night. My sister Janice said that her wrist was hurt because she had to rub Our Father body down with oils all night. My sister Diamond had to brush his hair and tell him that he was the King and she would only love him forever she never leave his the family circle. I couldn't tell them what happened to me because I could remember. We heard knocking on the door to come and eat so we did. After dinner we watch T.V surrounding my Father's chair were he sat and looked at us writting in his note book. It was time for bed and I was tried. But as soon as I layed down the bell rang 5 times and I had to go. This time it was quiet and dark. I heard breathering as I walked up the steps, very afraid of what is up there I walked slow. I got to the top an I felt some hands all over me. My arms were pulled out and I couldn't get free oil was ranning down my face and I heard his voice say! your the sweetest one this will always be mine. I felt more oil all over me hands touching places I did know much about then it happened He put his tongue in mouth and many other places Then my red juice must of took over because I woke up in the circle of flowers and candles again. This morning I felt like I was in a fog or something because I couldn't believe that I dreamed this! On this morning I knew why he kept us away from outsiders and never were we to talk about home to teacher and school mates. My life after this was never the same.
