Die Haube noch. « Margaretha schlang den Zopf zu einem losen Knoten im Nacken, sie hatte keine Zeit, die Haare ordentlich hochzustecken, zog die Haube über und verknotete das Band unter dem Kinn. Mevrouw van Holten war eine geborene Scheuten, dachte Margaretha, erst letztes Jahr hatte sie geheiratet, und nun erwartete sie ihr erstes Kind. « Auch wenn Margaretha noch bei keiner Geburt dabei war, wusste sie doch viele Dinge, die damit zu tun hatten. Von früh an hatte die Mutter ihre einzige Tochter mitgenommen, hatte mit ihr den Kräutergarten gepflegt und war mit ihr durch die Rheinauen gegangen, immer auf der Suche nach Kräutern und Heilpflanzen.

Kein Wind pfiff hier, das Zimmer lag nach hinten zum Hof. Margaretha gab sich einen Ruck und öffnete die Tür zum Schlafzimmer. Thilda lag im Bett, die Beine weit gespreizt. Das flackernde Licht der Kerzen warf gespenstische Schatten, die über die Wände tanzten. Sie atmete zusammen mit Gretje, ein Rhythmus, ein-aus, ein-aus. Hin und wieder entfuhr ihr ein Wimmern. Margaretha wusste nicht, wie sie sich bemerkbar machen sollte, und traute sich nicht, zum Bett zu gehen. �Schön weiteratmen, Meisje«, sagte Gretje lobend und drehte sich dann zu ihrer Tochter um.

Margret, wir müssen gleich noch zur Wöchnerin. Annemieke, bring Eva nach dem Essen zu Bett. Leg ihr einen heißen Backstein unter die Decke. Wir werden morgen die Fenster abdichten müssen. « Sie stand auf, wusch sich die Hände und ging dann in die kleine Kammer neben der Küche, in der sie ihre Kräuter und Tinkturen aufbewahrte. Margaretha folgte ihr. �Wenn wir einen strengen Winter bekommen, werden viele Leute unter Husten und Auswurf leiden. « Seit einigen Jahrzehnten zogen immer mehr Mennoniten nach Krefeld.
