Dragon Queen

THE NIGHT HOURS WERE the hardest for Sister Catherine. She sat in a wooden chair near the front door, now locked and barred. It was only last month when the Prioress called her into the den and assigned her the task of the night watch. Sister Catherine knew this meant she was trusted. It meant she had finally moved into the senior ranks, despite being only twenty, the youngest of all the matrons. If she did her duty without infraction the inner mysteries of the convent would be shared with her. Most especially, she wished to see the corpse of Saint Peter, a Russian monk who died in 1206. The same year she’d arrived, and was said to have seen the Christ. It was lucky to look upon him, she was told. Rumors abounded that the convent was still in operation by selling off his sacred fingers, one by one; a truth Sister Catherine hoped to learn first hand.

Just after midnight, Sister Catherine began a thorough walkthrough of the stone corridors. She usually started in the west wing, by the chapel, and then took the spiral steps to the outlook, an open terrace that offered a view of the Okhotsk Sea. And on a clear day one or two of the fifty-six islands known as the Kurils. From there she went into the dorms, and then back down again towards the wash rooms, the bath, the kitchen, the prayers rooms, the enclosed gardens, the tool sheds, ending at the shrine of Our Lady of Grace, before returning to her post at the front gate.
