The volgende dag was crazy, his sisters attended their "interview"
and thankfully they did get choosen door a couple who were very well off.
Eugene couldn't help but feel terrible though, he was glad his sisters were gonna get a better life then he ever would but he just didn't want to let them go.
Natalie and Elizabeth were all he had left as a family, everyone else had abandoned him. Were they about to do the same?
He had two days to say his goodbyes before he wouldn't probably ever see the two girls that he held so dear to his hart-, hart ever again.
Natalie was absolutly estatic that she was getting a new mommy,
apparently the woman had been very nice, but she did also share concerns about her future "mother's" husband.
"He just sat there barely talking and staring at us, it was kinda weird but I mean he might have just been nervous," Eugene was helping the two little girls pack their things so that moving would be easier for them. Natalie was bouncing around grabbing what little she had and stuffing it into the bag that her brother was holding open. Elizabeth sat clutching her teddy beer on the bottom bunk,
green eyes downcast and tears brimming the edges pouring over her eyelashes.
"Beth what's wrong?" Natalie asked her sister sitting down volgende to her and putting a comforting arm around the brunette. Eugene came over and sat on her other side also putting his lanky arm around her shoulder.
"Eugene u aren't coming with us are you?" Elizabeth's voice sounded small and shaky, suddenly Natalie realized that her brother hadn't packed his own stuff.
"Eugene?" Natalie looked up her hazel eyes now filling with tears as the boy put his head down and looked at his shoes holding the girl closer to him. Nat crawled over and sat on his lap hugging him while Beth just cried into his side.
He wanted to be strong, but couldn't bring himself to stop the tears.
"Their gone..." Eugene whispered to himself sitting on the back steps of the porch of the orphanage. The couple had come and taken the twins today, their brother couldn't even watch as the carriage jorneyed down the dirt road to the girls new home.
He tried to tell himself they would be happier in a better enviroment,
with good parents but Eugene decided just to be selfish for the moment and wish he could see Natalie skipping through the yard with Elizabeth tentively following closely behind.
He would never have the chance of a better life, all he would ever know is the orphanage.
This thought made him madder then anything.
Acting on an impulse the boy walked over to the curtain and quietly trudged up the stairs not caring if he got caught anymore, just knowing he had to get out of here.
Throwing random artikels of clothing in a laundry bag, Eugene looked at the faces around the room, all sleeping peacefully yet he couldn't help the scowl that reached his face. He was going to get something better then this.
That night Eugene left the orphanage behind, and refused to ever look back.
The forest floor was damp from the rain the night before, huge trees casted strange shadows along the path that the little runaway was following, he tripped and stumbled but his pace never wavered,
he had to get far enough away from the place that had stolen all the joy from him.
The only thing he could hear was the sounds of his footfalls on the ground and the squish of the mud as his foot slid in puddle after puddle.
What had he been thinking? He was only 8 years old! What was he going to do for a living? No one would give him a job! With every step he realized the mistake he had made, yet he couldn't bring himself to turn around, it just wasn't an option, it never would be.
He could steal.
Ever since that first day, he had gone into town with and surprisingly he had a natural ability to snatch things quickly. Stealth always had been a talent of his, was he gonna get to put it to use?
But still that felt wrong, but what other choice did he have? Starve to death? Live the rest of his life wondering around looking for a job when really he would just be lousy at it?
Eugene ran a hand through his thick brown hair feeling extremely weary but still trudging forward, when suddenly he heard the rustling of leaves.
Panicing he ran through nearly all the possibilities of what it could be. A wild animal? No, it sounded to human. ? Uhmmm...
possibly but he would rather run face to face with the palace guards then that woman right now.
Standing frozen in his spot a woman with dark curly hair and red dress stepped through the leaves looking as if she was in a hurry yet very tired, the wrinkles under her eyes were evident and the bundle she held close to her was drooping a bit.
The woman didn't notice the quivering boy in front of her and quickly stepped through another bit of branches. But not before Eugene got a look at what the bundle was.
A baby. She had beautiful blonde hair that looked too long to be on such a tiny child, her hands were curled into small fist, cheeks were a rosy roze and mouth set in a "o". What caught the boy's eye though was the smaragd, emerald orbs staring right back at him, all of a sudden something clicked. The baby looked back at him curiously in those very few seconds, and Eugene was sure his face probably matched hers.
As soon as they appeared the woman and child disappeared into the darkness of the night, nothing left behind to even prove they had even been there.
It wasn't until the volgende dag that Eugene learned from over listening through a window of a pub that the princess of Corona had been kidnapped the very night before, she had beautiful blonde hair. And most importantly big green eyes.
He had seen the princess, and he now knew that no matter what happened, somehow, he would be the one to find her.
