The Orphan Train - first chapter
1003 days ago
Why didn´t they want me anymore? thought Daniel. Daniel and his parents were standing in front of a huge train, the biggest Daniel had seen. Everyone was standing in a line, waiting to board the train. Suddenly, the train horn blew. Daniel covered his ears in fright. "ALL ABOARD!" the conductor yelled. The line moved, and Daniel was first to board the train. But Daniel didn´t want to. Daniel held onto his mother´s hand tighter then ever and tried not to let go. Daniel cried. "I DON´T WANT TO GO!" cried Daniel. "I-I CAN´T!" Daniel continued. The conductor pulled Daniel into the train. "Wait," said Daniel. Daniel paused for a moment. "Mom, Dad, I love you," whispered Daniel. Daniel´s parents didn´t respond. "IN! SIT DOWN!" commanded the conductor. Daniel took a seat. He pinched himself, hoping it was a dream. But that didn´t help one bit.
