The Beginning

A baby’s cry echoes out into the dark foggy night covering the sound of murmurs as two darkly clad figures place a bundle on a doorstep. Immediately the cry cuts off and the figures split up, one going for the mailbox to place an envelope inside and the other to the door where it lightly raps an outstretched hand on a wooden door. The one who went to the mailbox quickly leaves with a curt nod at the one still at the door. It looks down at the bundle and you can see a liquid tear fall down the figures shadow engulfed face onto the blankets.

It croons something in another language then takes off into the night with only the sound of shoes tapping on pavement. The wooden door slowly opens and a woman peeks her head out to see who would come knocking on her door at this time of night. She does not see the two figures standing but feet away because the fog was too thick and the night too dark. Slowly the woman looks down to see if there were any clues and seeing the bundle she leans down to investigate. A mans voice rings out to see what is going on and the woman tells him to come to her. The man comes up behind the woman and looks over her shoulder.

Picking up the small bundle the woman removes the piece covering what is inside and gasps. A baby lays there its emerald green eyes looking up and its black inch long hair was black. The man comes forward and brushes a slow finger across the baby’s cheek and the baby reaches up to grasp the mans finger in its small hand. Trying to pull away the man gives a shout and the baby starts to giggle. Its giggle was like a bird’s song or the tinkle of bells. It gave the couple a feeling of safety and serenity.

A decision is made and the baby is taken inside and rocked to sleep in the woman’s arms. A promise is made that night to keep this event a secret and never let anyone know she isn’t his or hers. Not even she will know she was taken in. Sadly they do not know that in a few years their lives will change drastically.
