question from a man in Eastern Siberia about a little girl from the town inhabitants, who killed the

    Street lamp on a ten-meter concrete pillar goes off every minute in order to re-ignite, the flame on the tip of my Romeo and Juliet N2, regularly remains at the moment the closest to me is the light source. Tiny scarlet light. Midnight in autumn in Eastern Siberia already getting numb fingers from the cold, but I'm trying to gain them the text in the online translator window on your Sony. The text that I want to send Mr. king. The text, which he 99% will never see, not read. But for some reason I really want to ask him, to ask him a question, which is why it is not leaving me from the moment I read the first half of the first book of the series the Dark Tower. What happened to that little girl in that town, mad with the people who killed the shooter. Baby hardly any infants that happily drooled sitting in the mud of the stables Kennerly. The shooter shot and killed thirty-nine men, fourteen women and five children. Everyone who was in Tallaght.
    And then when I read these lines I get the feeling that among these children could not be the baby of breastfeeding age. So what happened Mr. King?

    I think I get what he's asking: Roland shot a lot of people in Tull (supposedly everyone in the town), but Alexander wonders what happened to the Kennerly baby. (Kennerly had four daughters, one full grown, two half-grown and a baby). He suggests that it's unlikely Roland shot the baby, so what happened to it? A legit question, but I'm not sure there's a satisfactory answer. Its fate is never revealed, but it probably wouldn't have survived long if everyone else in town was dead.

    Hello and welcome. There might be a translation issue. If Alexander from Siberia is writing about Tull, then all in the town were killed.
    **I see Bev's answer above. Agree, the baby could not survive.

    I say Thank You. But all our assumptions about the fate of this one-year-old girl that's just a guess. I know I didn't get an answer. But after asking the question I . . . . don't know how to Express in words.. .. . probably not going to try. P.$. sorry for the bad translation. Damn online translator. And my English is really bad

    Hello Alexander of Siberia, While what the others above say rings true I like the idea that the infant child is a girl and is picked up by the Sisters of Eluria(?) and she grows up and cares for Roland further down the line. "Midnight in autumn in Eastern Siberia" I like that. Makes it feel stark and bleak both without and within. All the best, mal.

    Thank you, But.. Only the king knows what happened to this baby

    All right mister. It is written that the Shooter killed 5 children. Considering the boys on the road and what I said to you, that little girl didn't kill the Shooter

    Hi and welcome, Alexander from Siberia, it's true that only Stephen knows what became of the child, but I think folks here are just making conversation with you about what 'might' have happened. :smile:
    It is unlikely that we will get a definitive answer as Stephen usually likes to leave the unanswered questions about his characters up to the imagination of his readers.

    You're doing very well with your translations, thank you for working at it so hard. :smile:

    Bev is a writer that works very closely with Stephen and so often has very useful information to help readers understand some of Stephen's intent.

    I think that Bev is trying hard to understand what it is you're asking...

    Is it that you only want an answer from Stephen? (and not other board members guessing at what happened?)
    Perhaps you could try again to let us know what it is you'd like answered?

    Yes. I want to know what happened to the baby, a little girl. The shooter didn't kill her. I'm sure.
    And Yes, the answer to this question can only give Mr. King.
    The only question is, do I want to answer. Maybe I just needed to ask this question
