Everything at Jacob’s house continued until Rohanda came home crying on day. Jacob held her until she was calm.
The war between the Morning Stars and The Church had grown over the last couple of weeks. Freed people were being identified, abducted and reintegrated on a daily basis. To make matters worse, non-active family members were the target. LA was an established area for the Morning Stars. They allowed active members to free close family members and friends: remove their Watchers and regain their lost memories. The Church paid little attention to this practice before the incident with my family.
Rohanda’s sister was taken like the others. While Rohanda and her sister were not active Morning Star members, their father used to be when he was alive. They fell under the protection of the Morning Star community when their father died a year ago.
The Church identified Rohanda’s sister when she picked up a friend’s daughter at a parochial school. Since they had not active link to the Morning Stars and removing a Watcher twice has exponentially more complications compared to removing a Watcher the first time, her sister was not going to be saved. Her sister was going to be reintegrated like the rest. Rohanda was never going to be able to talk to her sister again.
Jacob told her he would help.
