The women in charge were ruthless and threatened them not to escape, or they would be captured and shot by anti-Japanese Communists. Girls were all afraid. Besides, there was no place to hide. They could only live at the mercy of soldiers. Yin-chiao’s working hours went from six in the morning to six in the evening. Officers had the privilege of spending the night. They must attend to every need of these officers with long swords and guns. When soldiers were in a bad mood or were drunk, they cursed her for no reason. To survive, Yin-chiao suffered in silence.
