It was cold. The icy wind blew forcibly, ripping brown leaves off their stems and letting them flutter to the ground, where a poor girl was feebly raking a puny pile of half-frozen, wet leaves together, a job that seemed everlasting by the constantly falling leaves. As she raked, the girl stumbled over a protruding root and fell to the ground. She picked herself up and picked up her thin shawl as well. She wiped away the grit and tears with her dirty, ragged sleeve, and continued to rake. An hour later. The little girl finished her chore and walked slowly into an ancient looking mansion. Little ragged girls and boys were scuttering around, cleaning and doing chores. Several nurses were wandering about, looking for resting children. The little girl stopped in front of a little flame that burned on a piece of wood, chopped by one of the children, of course. The eye of a short little nurse caught sight of her, and she barked out, "Hey!! No stoppin'! Get back to work!" The girl shivered, pulling her shawl tighter around her thin shoulders. She, under the speculative eye of the nurse, moved on her way. The girl reached a large door, and put her ear to it. She could hear faint, sad classical music playing. She paled, The lady is in a bad mood today. The girl knocked quietly on the door, and almost before she finished, a stout, pompous woman with fierce looks opened the door, revealing a richly furnished room with a table, which had a recorder with the classical music playing. "Well?" The woman snapped. "What do you want AGAIN, Milly?" The little girl shrunk under the cruel lady's gaze. "Ma'am, I'd like some brek'ist, please." The little girl said timidly. "I finished my chores." The big woman glared, raising her hand as if to strike her. "You can have breakfast when you finish ALL the chores!! Go!!" Milly cowered in fear, trembling like a leaf. "Please Miss Butch!" She pleaded. The woman slapped her, and Milly fell to the ground, tears streaming down her face. "I don't care about you orphans! I don't care! You weasels!" Miss Butch fairly screamed, slamming the door. As Milly walked down the hallway, she could still hear the woman ranting. She sighed, as a fresh batch of tears slid down her gaunt and pale cheeks. She thought to herself, Maybe Rose was right. Why should we stay? No one cares about us. I mean, who would care?
