“Changed?” Salina Joe whispered, still staring at the reformatory. “Different from what they were?”

“Do they go to school there?”

“Yes.” Said the woman.

“Would they take a girl who only had six months school?” She asked softly.

The woman laughed: “you don’t undertand.” She said: “the formatory only takes bad girl, a girl like would never go there.

She climbed over the black iron fence and looked into one of window. Tow girls, her own age, sat to table reading books.

“Can I coming?” Salina Joe whispered to them.
