Once everyone else has shared their dreams, they look at her expectantly. Usually she says that she had no dreams.
Maggie always has dreams. Always. But after what happened with her Stirrings, she’d – hesitating and terrified – lied to her Father. “No,” she’d said, her nails digging into her thighs under the table on one otherwise unremarkable day, “I had no dreams last night.” He had nodded. Believed her. She’d lied, and he hadn’t known.
That was the beginning of the end for her, really. Once she could lie, she realized she could do anything.
It’s such a habit now, she doesn’t even notice when she lies to her table. She had dreamed about buildings, about angling a roof and connecting straight walls to a vast floor. “I dreamed about fish hatching,” she says dully, and they all nod and murmur their thanks for her dream, clearly bored.
