dodging hands trying to grab her down. Miss Gloria had said she
had a present for her. Birthday presents were expensive and with
as many' kids as there were in the orphanage, most kids had never
gotten one. Mia was one of those kids. As she ran around the
corner she saw a guy coming out of the office his hair bright as
flame. she wondered what someone like him was doing
somewhere like this.
Still, she kept running, so excited to see what her present would
be. As she neared Miss Gloria's office she stopped. A woman was
coming ont of her office, but not just any woman the head of the
Orphanage Mrs. Hethcart. That was weird Mrs. Hethcart never came to this side of the building. All the older kids were here, they
never got adopted so there wasn't a point of anyone but, Mrs.
Gloria being here.
As Mrs. Hethcart walked down the hall, she spotted Mia, but
instead of scowling her for not being in the lunch hall, she smiled.
Mrs. Hethcart never smiled, something was going on. Mia quickly
nodded back to Mrs. Hethcart and moved out of her way, quickly
knocking on Miss Gloria's room twice and slipping inside.
Miss Gloria turned around when she heard Mia enter. She hadan
Excited look on her face that made Mia wonder what was going on
even more. Miss Gloria told Mia to sit down in a red chair near
the dark oak desk. She then asked Mia to close her eyes. When
she did what was asked, she heard Miss Gloria rummaging
through something. Seconds later she heard the word "open" She
opened her eyes and saw the most beautiful necklace sitting in a
white fabric box. She of course had gotten presents for Christmas
from charities but none like this. It was the prettiest thing Mia
had ever seen. It was a ruby-colored jewel shaped ike a
raindrop with white crystals all around it. Mia fipped the
necklace over and saw the word feyre Written on it, she wondered
what that meant. Miss Gloria handed her the box. She then explained that the
necklace had been left in the basket with Mia when they had
found her. Miss Gloria was the first to see Mia she saw the
necklace as well, she knew she would have to hide the necklace, as
to not let Mrs. Hethcart know about it. Mrs. Hethcart would sell
the necklace for money and not ever tell anyone it existed.
Mrs. Gloria then handed Mia a note.
My dearest daughter,
I regret having to leave you like this. But I know it is for the best.
Please take care of this necklace as it was mine before you and
before mine millions of women in our family wore it. You will be
agreat queen one day I just know it. For now, enjoy living
love your mother
What the hell." she exclaimed." Have you read this?" she asked
#No, Im afraid I haven't why?
It says Im going to be queen, me a queen?
Haha, it probably just means figuratively."
yeah, I guess." she said, " Hey, do you know why Mrs. Hethcart
was in this hall today?
Well, that would be your second surprise.
what do you mean?"
Well, Mia you've been adopted."
Yeah you've been adopted, a man named Cairon has adopted
you, and his son has come to pick you up. OMG! That's Awesome! cried Mia. She quicky pocketed her
new necklace and the note from her mother. She hugged Miss
Gloria and ran out of the room. She was almost back to her room
when she rounded the corner and ran into him.
There he was the boy from before. I got a good look at him this
time he was tall and strong, and his eyes were bright as gold. He
seemed nice, that was before he opened his mouth.
Nice going, orphan.
You heard me get out of my way.
She shuffled by him and kept on to her room to pack her few
belongings. She didn't have much., but she did have the blanket
her mom gave her and some pictures she'd taken with friends
when she was younger. She didn't have much else except for her
recently acquired birthday gift. She hid it in her pocket, knowing
that Mrs. Hethcart would look through her bag to malke sure she
didn't take anything
Moments later, there was a knock at the door. Mrs. Hethcart was
on the other side along with Mr. Goldenboy. yes Mrs. Hethcart?
"Finally" she replied, "this is Cairon your new brother.
Well, chop-chop, time to go." she hurried, "just let me see your
Mia handed the bag over and Mrs. Hethcart jumbled through it.
When she tried to pull the blanket out Mia stopped her, Even
though they argued and Mrs. Hethcart tried to claim the blanket
as hers, Mia won in the end. So with her bag on her shoulder and
her necklace in her pocket she walked out of the orphanage with
Cairon. Cairon took her to a red Convertable, something mia had
only seen in pictures and never thought she'd see in real life.
He put her bag in the backseat and told her to sit in the passenger
seat. when she got in and had her seatbelt on she asked him a
I thought your dad's name was Cairon, not yours.
actually, Princess my dad's dead and myname is Cairon."
Before she could jump out of the car he slammed on the gas. She
quickly sat back down in her seat, hoping she wasn't going to die.
Who are you? she questioned. Who are you? she questioned.
My name is Cairon Lightborne and I am your royal knight."
Excuse me, My royal what?
Well, long story short your mom was the crown princess and
sister to the queen, she went missing, and the queen died, so I
Was sent to get you to rule until y our mother can be found and
What do you mean? Mymother left me when I was a baby, why
would she do that if I was a princess?2
because it wasn't safe for you in ethria, the Dark kingdom was
Ethria?The dark Kingdom? what is going on?
Just then Cairon stopped the car.
Get out now, he told her. she refused. So he walked around the
car and opened the door. he grabbed her arm and led her to the
edge of a cliff.
What are you doing, are you crazy?
Just a little princess. He replied. Now, use your magic and
open the portal.
