4. Chapter 4. Who Was At The Door?

*PROMISE’S POV*

I sat on my bed taking little itty-bitty nibbles out of my poptart; knowing my stomach would just puke it back up. I opened the window and crumbled my poptart up and dropped it all 5 stories. As soon as I closed my window a knock came at the door, I was half expecting it to be Miss. Diane or even Mandy, but it was a kid about 12 or 13 peeking their head into my room. I just sat there starring at the new girl. She asked if she could come in and I nodded my head.

I was really surprised why 1. A kid could be so happy at this place and 2. Why have the other kids not scared her away from me yet?

“Hi, I’m Ciara {Pronounced kee + ra}”

“Hi” I barely managed to squeak out.

“So…” She said trying to start a conversation, but failing.

I just looked back down at my thumbs and started playing with them. “Why are you here”? I asked even shocking myself, my voice just came out so, so, so abrupt, abusive, bad-mannered, barbarian, barbaric, barbarous, blunt, boorish, brusque, brutish, cheeky, churlish, coarse, crabbed, crude, curt, discourteous, graceless, gross, gruff, ignorant, illiterate, impertinent, impolite, impudent, inconsiderate, insolent, insulting, intrusive, loutish, low, obscene, offhand, peremptory, raw, rough, savage, scurrilous, short, surly, uncivil, uncivilized, uncouth, uncultured, uneducated, ungracious, unmannerly, unpolished, unrefined, vulgar, wild. All of these words came to me at once. I looked up and was about to apologize when she was all ready out the door. Great I thought just had to scare another person away.

I got off my bed and decided mom, dad and sissy would NOT want me like this. I went downstairs as slowly as I could. When I reached the 1st floor all eyes on where on me. I just sighed and went over to the telly and turned it on. I never really liked watching the telly because everything and everyone was just so happy. This news channel popped up and said that this band so called One Direction was in the town of Framlingham, Suffolk in England. I was shocked because for starters I was in this town and also almost no one knew of our town. That’s why almost no one here gets adopted. I was still thinking to myself as the telly rambled on and on I just kind-of spaced out. This was until I heard the doorbell ring. I know what are you thinking but because it is an orphanage it was like a house with lots of people living in it so it was just how things went.

All I picked up from this conversation was:

“When? Tomorrow? Oh yes but see it takes about a years’ time. You want to wait? That’s fantastic. I’ll have her ready to meet you guys tomorrow, like I said.” I knew the voice, it was Miss. Diane’s voice. I wondered who she was talking to and who was going to meet them tomorrow. Miss. Diane sat down next to me and said “Sweetie some people are interested in possibly adopting you so I need you to be ready tomorrow by noon at the latest, OK?”

I just nodded my head and looked up at her. Did she ever not have a caring smile on her face? Ha who knows? I got off the couch and turned the telly off and walked off to the stairs. As soon as I reached my room I went to the window, popped the screen out of the window and swung my legs over the edge. I had a little platform under me maybe 1 meter by 2 meters. I was ok but I just stared out into the little town and stayed like that for a couple hours till it was dark out.

“Hi” I almost jumped out the window when someone said that I looked in my room finding no one there but then I looked down onto the calming streets of our town only to see a boy who looked almost the same to the one at the park. I just shuffled back into my room slamming the window shut not caring about the screen for now.

 

*LOUIS POV*

I was just walking around for a little bit after my stop at the orphanage to find that I have just gone in complete circles. I stopped and looked up to see a girl swinging her legs about 5 stories up when I said hi. This seemed to startle her because she jumped a tad and then scampered off into the room and slammed the window shut. You might be wondering ‘Louis why did you stop at the orphanage’. Well let me tell you why, so the other day when I was at the park and followed Promise back to the orphanage, wow that sounds stalkerish, I just felt the need to do something. I was upset knowing there is no way they will let me, being only 21, to adopt a girl who was only 7 years younger than me. So I gave my mum a ring and explained to her, the situation. She understood and agreed on one condition…
