Here is part of a new story that I am working on. I don't know what the title will be yet. It is about a girl who goes to live with her aunt, uncle, and cousins because her parents have died. The time period is 1905. Enjoy! :)
I waited at the train station for Aunt Margaret. She was going to pick me up and take me to live with her and Uncle David and the cousins I was sure I'd dislike. I'd never met them before and all I knew about them was that they were four girls. And I, Clementine Parker, an orphan, was to live with them.
My parents had recently died in a boating accident, and I had no other relations that I knew of to take care of me. My father's family lived to far away, and my mother had one sister, Margaret. They and my grandparents lived in New York City.
I sat on the bench with my carpet bag next to me. It carried all of my belongings. A few outfits, books, a photo album, and a journal was all I needed.
My short, black hair bobbed in the wind, and my skinny legs swung back and forth, impatiently. Had Aunt Margaret forgotten me? I wondered.
But then, all of a sudden, I heard someone call my name.
"Clementine? Is that you?"
I turned towards the voice where I saw my aunt striding towards me. She was dressed in all black, with her brown hair tied up in a bun. She looked strict with her mouth set in a firm line as if she was displeased with me. I stood up, taking hold of my bag, and went to meet her.
