Now what are we to think? Brother Michael...at this point in the story he is such an ambiguous character. On the one hand he seems to be everyone's friend but then there is that quiet voice that is so quiet he has to come up close to Daniel for him to hear. And then there is that invitation for Daniel to wait in his room.
'After a couple of seconds silence there was the start of what would have become a cheer had it not been for Brother Michael’s stare. ' So there is enough menace in him to silence the boys.
Then we have
'He signalled once again for everyone to put their things away and then he leaned down close to my ear again.'
I take it he is of a different order to Father Greg. Is he a Franciscan Monk and if so then, alternatively, he could also be a friend and confidente to the boys.
You are leading us first one way then another. Totally gripping!
