Whew! This chapter left me with a pervasive feeling of gloom that I just couldn't shake, and an intense need to seek out some lighthearted fluff to compensate. It will be a relief once Melchior finally arrives to rescue Wendla - even though that will just be the beginning of a very long recovery process.

oh my god I really hope Melchior comes back soon!

I like how you focused Wendla's strength on herself. I know (?) she had to have lost the baby with that kick, but she doesn't, does she? I really wanted her to be rescued before this punishment because how can her little body ever recover. I can't imagine she will ever be able to be touched again, by anybody.
I can't imagine how hard a chapter like this was to write. The quality is absolutely wonderful, regardless of the current torture.

i literally cannot wait for Melchior! Brilliantly written and heart-wrenching as always xxxx

You weren't kidding when you warned that this was dark and graphic. I felt like screaming myself at what Wendla is being forced to endure at the hands of those heartless men. And to think that her mother was the one to leave her to their mercy. I believe I hate Frau Bergmann as much as I hate the three 'teachers'.
I literally cringed when Wendla was kicked in the stomach. I would fully expect her to miscarry after all she's been through, which will only serve to break her even further.
Thank goodness for Martha and her letter, and for Melchior finding a way to sneak out in order to come back to rescue his love. I don't blame him in the slightest for his ill feelings about his parents, who were hardly supportive of him in his time of trouble. If his mother's secret is that she also knows what was in store for Wendla, then I imagine that would be the impetus for Melchior's cutting all ties with her. But perhaps the secret is that Wendla's pregnant - still something he had a right to know, but not as unforgivable a secret to keep.
I like Melchior's vision of his and Wendla's future, but I must admit to being worried about how he's going to manage to spirit her from the headmaster's house. She's in no shape to escape, and it'll be three against one...
As with everything of yours I've read, this is brilliantly written. I look forward to the next chapter.

YAY MELCHI TO THE RESCUE! Well almost lol. I was wondering how you were going to have Melchior actually find out about Wendla's plight and I'm very glad you found such a believable way to do it.
Loved the insight into Melchior's character and I'm happy to say you write Melchior just well as you write Wendla.
Can't wait for more xxxx

Love it~~ you. Are. soon!

I think you are right about the miscarriage as part of your next chapter (or so). Her only strength is Melchior's baby she is carrying. Once that is taken away, she will truly break. Hopefully, you will have him find her soon after and allow them both to grieve for the loss.

i liked it! seeing more of martha's character is really interesting! i really hope wendla ends up alright in the end! is melchior going to figure out what's going on with martha too? i feel like he probably should. just for sake of martha. and because melchior is smart- he'd figure something like that out, i feel like. maybe he'll have a dream and put the pieces together that way- because obviously he'll be consciously thinking and worrying about wendla now. keep up your great work, cris! :) update again soon! *hugs for everyone!* :(

oh my god. OH MY GOD. this is awful, terrible, i was cringing the whole time. you have such fantastic writing skills. this is such a scary thing to read but the subject is so unique and i can really picture what's going on. can't wait for the next chapter!

Your Wendla can differentiate her rape from what she had with Melchior. I like that you gave her the presence of mind to do that.
I'm surprised what the teachers had said about her pregnancy. I would have thought a miscarriage would be a requisite for her "training". I wouldn't have thought that losing the baby would fall under Mommy's description of permanent damage.

I wonder if her mother has been indoctrinated like this as well. Violence against women is definately a tool used to debilitate a person's soul. Good story, although I kind of wish her salvation was not found in the hands of another man. After all, it is a man who is sadistically torturing her.
