Minerva relates that she and her sisters had to ask permission for everything, including being able to go away to school. Papa gave permission for Patria to go to Inmaculada Concepcion because she wanted to become a nun, so Minerva asks if she can go along. Dede volunteers to be the one to stay and help Enrique Mirabal with his store until January.
