I watched with wide eyes from behind a crafting table as the man who was chasing me and a woman walk up to Jefferson and ask him some questions about a lost girl.
Lost girl? I wasn't lost I was running away from those people who said they were my parents!
I leaned closer to hear what they were saying about me.
"She ran through here, said hello and left." Jefferson was saying. I smirked
That's what he thinks. I knew all these crafting tables were a good place to hide! They'll never find me.
"Which direction did she go?" The man who chased me asked. Jefferson pointed West in the direction I'd run and then sneaked back to hide while Jefferson was to busy to notice.
The man and woman thanked him then started off in the direction he pointed. As they passed the crafting table I'm hiding behind I held my breath. When they'd pasted without glancing at me I poked my head out from the crafting table. They were no where in sight.
I stood up and started sneaking away in the other direction when suddenly I hear a shout and looked over my shoulder just as the man and the woman started chasing me.
I ran with all my might barreling out of Jefferson's camp and narrowly sliding down the ice bridge over the river. I came to the snow again and pressed my feet down, taking off once more. I looked over my shoulder and grinned to see the man and woman stumbling over the bridge.
I am an Urchin after all, we were born with swift feet!
I closed my eyes and ran, spreading out my arms behind me, enjoying the fresh, cold air.
I'm free!! I won't have to go back to those awful people who treat me like dirt. I won't have to scrub the floor and walls and ceiling 'till they shine anymore! I won't have to-
"AHHHH!!" I scream as I trip on a rock and fall head first into a narrow hole. I slide down a tunnel and end up in a wide bottom. I look above me and see other holes with slides going down from them.
Well, at least that man won't chase me anymore! I hope he didn't hear me scream...
