Proluge-G r a c e f u l Annabell's hands were slightly cutting all the ingredients and getting cuts from the knive once in a while.She lived alone with her step brother,Alexander..or Alex,for short in a little country side house that would take care of the every needs.Alex walks in with corn in a basket and sets it on the table."Here's some corn for dinner.I'll be out getting some orange juice.See ya".I nod not even turning towards him,as he leaves and the door slams quietly.After a while,I put all of the food in the oven and plopped down on the sofa,and watched the news.The half broken televison would scribble at times,but that was no need to throw it out."Now,here is Bert Anderson with the weather forecast in your area" the lady says.A man with grey hair comes on and smiles."Good Afternoon everyone!!!Today the forecast is gonna be very dusty.There should be a couple of thunder storms during the night so close your windows!!! Now back to you". And of course,he was right.The wind was so hard that you couldn't even see anything outside except darkness.I went back to the kitchen and started to prepare the food.(Note:I forgot to put the part where Alex comes back.)Alex lays at the table with a slanted smile on his face.I take the food out of the oven and put it all in two plates.That's when I heard something outside.I heard the swift cry of a baby out in the storm."I'll be right back",I remind Alex and run outside.There,laying in the middle of the entry,was a little baby in a cradle. I quickly brought it inside and took to the kitchen.I then noticed there was a note,it read;"Please,the perspn who is reading this,take care of my once daughter.I am only 14,so I decided to give it out to someone.This baby's name is Graceful,and loves to have attention.Please take care of her". Graceful was her name. Thx for reading!! Plz comment.-Gwen
