The moon shown over New York City in November of 1995, despite the heavy rain pounding the streets and buildings. The cloudy sky opened up to let the moon shine through high above the skyscrapers. Not many drivers risked driving in the cold falling water, for the weather forecast on the radios and TV's mentioned hail, and even snow. Puddles formed along the worn sidewalks and streets, and nobody dared go outside. Well, almost nobody. Footsteps echoed around the near empty streets, as a woman wearing a light brown cloak ran like a lost dog. She carefully held a newborn wrapped in a woolen blanket as she searched the building names for the one she was looking for. The words were in a language unfamiliar to her, but she had a piece of paper holding the word she was looking for in the right language. ORPHANAGE. She got someone she met to write it for her; the man looked at her like she was crazy, or stupid. But she had the paper and was trying to match the lettering to the lettering on the buildings. Her child slept content in her arms, not bothered by the rain. The mother searched frantically on the buildings, but couldn't find a match. She soon made it to a brick building, old and worn. The steps were made of concrete, and had an awning over the door. She ran under the awning to escape the rain. A cardboard box was to her right, and a bronze sign on the wall to her left. She looked at it, cradling her daughter. She saw some familiar lettering. Orphanage. She compared the paper she had to the sign; they definitely matched. She took a large envelope from her cloak, and pulled the cardboard box in front of the strong wooden doors. The mother carefully placed the child in the box, trying her best not to wake her. She then placed the envelope beside her, and looked up to the door, showing her deep blue eyes. She clenched her hand in a fist and held it to knock. Something held her hand away; the thought of leaving her newborn daughter at a place where parent-less children stayed. She didn't want her to grow up thinking she had no parents, But she brought herself to banging on the solid doors. She then quickly went down the stairs, careful not to slip. She hid out of sight, waiting to see if someone would answer. The door opened after about ten seconds, and she could see a little girl, no more then two years old, answer. She had short pink hair, hazel eyes and was wearing a long nightgown. She saw her daughter right away. "Auntie! Come here!" She called to an older woman in the building. An elderly woman soon appeared and saw the baby, and brought her in without haste. Knowing her child was safe, the mother ran off into the streets of New York, hoping not to be seen there again. The elderly woman held the girl, abandoned by a mother. The girl at her leg tugged on her nightgown. "Auntie, why is the baby all alone?" "Well, Sera, sometimes parents can't take care of their child, or don't want them, so they give them to orphanages so we can take care of them." "That's sad. Who'd leave their baby alone, especially in the rain?" "I don't know, Sera, but I'm sure she had a good reason." Sera didn't say any more, but ran off to her room. She was going to arrange a room for the girl, when she noticed an envelope in the box. She carefully bent down and picked it up. It had a large bulk in it; it probably had something inside of it. She opened it, and pulled out the paper in it. It was written poorly, as if written by a child, but it was indeed written by an adult. She had trouble distinguishing the words, but soon made it out. For reasons beyond my control, I can't take care of my daughter. Please, take good care of her. She has a bright future ahead of her. Her name is Mana Futabatei. She was born on November 2, '95. Make sure she get's the package in the envelope. She pulled out what was in the envelope. It was a disassembled flute. The flute shone brightly in the dim light, and it didn't feel like it was metal. When she assembled it, she saw that on the mouthpiece was ignitials in a fancy font. M.F. It must've been expensive to make this for her. It's such good quality, and the engraving wasn't done cheaply either. She took the note, the flute and the girl, now known as Mana, to Sera's room. Since a boy was recently adopted, there was still a spare crib. When she opened the door, she looked at Sera's gleaming eyes. "Auntie?" "Sera, she's going to be staying in your room. You don't mind, do you?" "Not at all! What's her name?" "Mana." "What a nice name." Sera took a look at Mana, laying in the crip. She already had a thick head of black hair, and her eyes shone deep blue. "Don't worry, Mana. I'll be here to take care of you."

Kirti says:   26 August 2008   838244  

procrastinating isn't the same as quiting.

‹< Dragon-tamer-1995 >› says:   26 August 2008   227822  
You're the reason I use it now xD
I know it isn't, but I hate having to make people wait. But I'm having
trouble focusing on the chapters D: mostly because i'm too obsessed
with Rock Band <-- just got it and doesn't get to play often

‹< Dragon-tamer-1995 >› says:   28 September 2008   658589  
oh ok lol
Rin_Sohma says:   7 January 2009   493818  
o ya right if there's 1 thing i know about NYC it's that the streets
are never silent. it's not for nothing they call it "the city
that never sleeps".

could Cloak-Lady make people shut up like dumbledor and the put-outer?
That'd be so cool! (I luv Harry Potter!)
‹< Dragon-tamer-1995 >› says:   7 January 2009   386427  
Yeah, I don't know much about New York, apparently. ^^;

Hmm... (Thinking: O_o)
‹Joanna;FinallySetHerselfFree♥› says:   1 May 2009   259489  
YAY! This is cool! (this is actually me reading it for the first
time, so well done, this is good! x)
‹< Dragon-tamer-1995 >› says:   1 May 2009   594982  
Really? O_o
‹♥GoddessOfAnime♥› says:   8 May 2009   797753  
Thats awsome. You should make it into a book!
‹< Dragon-tamer-1995 >› says:   9 May 2009   487469  
That's what I plan to do once it's done. ^^
Kirti says:   7 July 2009   379427  
Haha, nothing stops traffic in America! Except maybe in very
rural places where children drive riding lawn mowers to school. Nice
changes though.

The only thing I don't get is if someone wrote "ORPHANAGE" on the
paper and the sign said "Orphanage", how could she read it? "R, r",
"G, g", "E,e". Some of the letters look very differnt in lowercase...
‹< Dragon-tamer-1995 >› says:   7 July 2009   343338  
This is a special case then. :]

Oh yeah, oops. I'll change that when I can be bothered.
Kirti says:   7 July 2009   175594  
I know that feeling.
blindwonder says:   5 August 2009   389424  
I don't think I've ever commented on this story, but I've read it and
you said you re-wrote the first chapter, so here I am.
I like it.
But the way Sera talks kind of confuses me. She doesn't really talk
like any two-year-old I know. But maybe that's just me.
