This is the story of a 12 year old girl named Scarlet, and she was an orphan at the Foresters Orphanage. Every night she dreamed of becoming a member of a new family and one night, this dream came true.
She was lying in her old, wooden bed, which creaked at every movement she made, trying to fall asleep but she couldn’t. After a while, she fell asleep but she had a bad dream. She couldn’t get out of it, she was getting chased down the street when…
She woke up. Startled. Everyone was asleep, except her. She could hear Mrs Rodgerneos, the owner of the orphanage, downstairs, talking to someone. Scarlet thought, ‘This is strange. There is no one else here.’ She sat there in thought. Then, decided to walk out onto the landing and peer down the steep stairs.
The young girl could see Mrs Rogerneos sitting on the sofa, talking to a nice looking couple. There was a tall, handsome man sitting next to a beautiful woman.
She stared for a while, then, started slowly creeping down the stairs, trying to be as silent as a mouse. A step screeched beneath her feet. Mrs Rogerneos’ head turned sharply. She began walking towards Scarlet. She saw her, grabbed her by the arm, and dragged her into the living room.
“This is Scarlet,” Mrs Rodgerneos introduced Scarlet to the visitors.
“Hello,” replied Scarlet, quietly.
“Hello sweetheart,” the woman said.
She seems nice, thought Scarlet.
“This is Mr and Mrs Langmead.” Mrs Rodgerneos introduced me to the kind people in front of me. There was silence. Mr and Mrs Langmead were mumbling to each other.
“We’ll take her,” said Mr Langmead, surprisingly.
It was more than she could have ever imagined. The start of an unforgettable, new life.
