Whooopeeeeee!!!
How marvelous is all this. What joy to glide within these walls again, now that all those nasty contractors and builders have gone. I even seem to have the place to myself. And what a place it has become.

Mother superior would have adored such cleanliness. Maybe my dear nuns would indeed rather have watched over art then wretched, dirty little girls like us. Why, you wouldn't even recognize this place as a refuge anymore. If it weren't for me, Maria Isabel, lingering ghost of that poor orphan that once lived and perished here, everyone would forget what all this once was.

Actually, they might not remember even though I am here. So easily do grown ups forget they used to be us. But I'll do all I can to help them remember. Starting with that patch of wet cement on the patio. And I think I passed at least one wall on which the paint hasn't fully dried yet. I can hear them now, hihihi.

Whose kid walked there? What the ****? We 're opening in half an hour ... how did those ... who is going to ... why is no one ...
Boss, you should really come look at the wall here as well. We tried covering it up with paintings but it's just too much, the pattern is too, I don't know. It looks like my daughter's drawings – she has ADHD you know, and …
WHAT DO I CARE ABOUT YOUR DAUGHTER'S ADHD? WHY IS THIS HERE? HOW ARE WE GOING TO EXPLAIN … THE MAYOR IS … THE ARCHITECT … WHY ... HOW … FOR CHRISSAKE, SOMEONE, DO SOMETHING.
