At twilight, m sister and I got to Beijing Railway Station. We bade each other goodbye in the dim-lit railway station square.
My sister had decided to go to Weifang on that night.
I said goodbye to my sister smilingly, my heart feeling serene and happy. We were not just sisters anymore; we were fellow practitioners of the same belief.
I didn’t see my sister thereafter.
She was abducted by police on the way to Weifang, and was expelled from mainland China after being detained in the Beijing First Detention Center for twenty four days (She underwent police brutality in the detention center).
