Note --> All the following events happened on the same day. I never lie.
Hannah roamed about the small town, looking for jobs that she could do. The people refused to give her any jobs. Not because she was a minor, but because she looked dirty. Still angry, tears trying to burst through her eyes, she moved on ahead.
As she walked down the road, she got stares from everyone. Keeping her head low, her eyes straight, she moved on. I know most of you will feel sad when you read this. I hope so. As she walked down the road, a car swerved by, nearly hitting her.
She fell down. And began to cry. On that empty street full of people, there was a kind woman with her shopping bag in her hand. She helped Hannah get up, and did what nobody had ever done. She hugged Hannah.
She held her hand, and asked her about her parents. Hannah replied that she didn't have any. In the back of her mind, a voice was screaming to her that all people were the same, and this kind woman was bad. The woman smiled at her, and took out a candy bar out of her
bag. Hannah accepted it, and started eating it greedily. She smiled back, her mouth full of chocolate. Sometimes, a lot of things are communicated without speaking. Both of them moved down the road, Hannah holding the woman's hand, and freely swinging the other.
The woman was pregnant, and she needed some help in the household work. But more than that, she wanted to help this poor little angel. Her doctor had said to her today that the health of her baby was not good, and maybe, there was a slight chance that it would not survive.
They reached her house. A plaque on the mailbox read - 'James and Christine'. She went into her house, and the first thing that Christine did was to send Hannah off to get a proper bath. Christine then gave her some of her niece's clothes, which fit perfectly.
Then they sat down in the living room, chatting and laughing together. Christine made lunch, and they ate it while watching TV. Hannah had never been so happy in her life.Christine felt like she had just found her daughter. Time passed by, and the sun rays found Hannah sleeping
peacefully on Christine's lap. Christine looked worried, because James had not returned yet. She kept on looking at the clock , then at her phone. She didn't want to call him yet, but if it got too late, she would. Absentmindedly, she stroked
Hannah's hair, wondering about her unborn child. Christine had seen all sides of life. She and James had gone through a lot of difficulties. She had felt something different today when she had seen Hannah. A strong soul, yet broke apart by the world. She had seen, her own reflection.
At 8 pm, she received a call. Apparently, James had died in a car accident. Her world came crashing down, and she dropped the phone. Hannah came running upon hearing the noise, and found Christine crying like a baby.
Without knowing the reason, Hannah hugged Christine and started crying too. They held each other for a long time, afraid to let go, afraid that if they did, something terrible would happen. My sources do not have any further record of how and what happened exactly, but Hannah
ended up getting enrolled by a mysterious person in the same school that Chris went to, and surprisingly got adopted by a wealthy couple soon. As for Christine, she lost herself in her grief, and never had her baby. It died a month after the accident in her womb.
