Hiding at a Widow's Store

And the ???'s had two daughters. The younger one was named Elise and the older one I don't remember her name. And I loved--the younger one and I were very close. Whenever I came to visit, I would sit on her lap and she would play with me. And once a day I was there and I said to her, "I have a funny feeling I'm never going to see you again." In that week she and her sister went to a meeting of the underground, and when they came out there was a, a bombing of the city and she was killed. And her sister was uh, hurt--her arm was--she, she got a grenade or whatever in her arm. And as soon as that happened I had to leave this hiding place because, you know, the woman was uh, she had so much grief and so many problems.
