After the Fire
by Will Hill
A young teen is finally free of a religious cult where she lived inside a fence with her family ever since she was a baby. She was never allowed to leave the property, talk to Outsiders, or speak up while there, per Father John’s strictly enforced rules. There was a fire, and now she is in a federal facility, answering questions about what really happened, and all the while attempting to figure out whether she is really safe and who she really is.
