However after Sister Mary has gone to fetch some juice, Colette takes off her cardigan revealing a large bruise on her arm, Nancy takes her to Mother Terence’s office, however Mother Terence makes an excuse saying that “Children play roughly with one another, it is their nature” Nancy retorts telling her that “Colette said one of the nuns did it and won’t say which one it was meaning that she is petrified, like I was” Making her suspect that it was Mother Terence who did it. Enraged Nancy takes Colette and leaves, leaving behind a gobsmacked Mother Terence.
