The Other Side Of The Story

By Mirna Mohammed

Adventure / Other

prologue

It was a very dark , cold and quiet night in one of London's many streets , where all the houses were similar with the same green front yard and the same white fence surrounding them

However the only difference was at that one house lying at the end of the street

Where a beautiful one year old baby girl ,that was wrapped in a white blanket to keep her warm was placed on the house door step

suddenly the silence of the night was broken by the low sweet crying sound of the baby girl

and not a minute later the door of the house opened revealing a brunette woman that looked in her late twenties

She started looking around the street, then the front yard searching for the source of the sound , but with no luck

so when she grow frustrated ,she was about to turn around and enter the house again

just then she looked down and her eyes fell immediately on the beautiful baby girl lying next to her feet

she was frozen for a second but quickly shook her head and got out of it

"Henry , come quickly" she called

then quickly bent down and picked her up carefully as if she was so fragile that she could easily break her if she did one wrong move

after a minute a man with black messy hair that looked in his late twenties as well came out of the house door and stood next to the woman while saying "yes, Sarah what's wro... " he was cut of as his eyes fell on the baby that was in his wife's arms

he opened his mouth to say something but no words came out

when Sarah noticed his lack of words, she quickly said while moving her gaze to the spot where she found the baby "I found her here but when i looked around there was no one"

Henry followed his wife gaze and it was only then when they both noticed the note that was placed there as well

Henry quickly bent down and picked it up, then started reading it loud "please take care of our sweet Alexandra as we couldn't do it ourselves"

he then turned to Sarah who was already looking at him

"what are we going to do with her?"

"i don't know" said Sarah, taking a few steps towards her husband so that she was standing directly in front of him with the baby girl between them

"but look at her Henry she 's just so beautiful" she said as she moved her gaze to the baby , then back to her husband who kept starring at the baby girl

he stroked the baby's cheek with the back of his finger

making her turn her head to look at him and giggle

a smile made its way to his lips and to Sarah as well

"maybe this was meant to happen Henry , maybe she was a gift from god , maybe she is our miracle" she said while looking between the baby and her husband

causing him to shoot his head up at her then stared at the thin air as if studying the situation and trying to make up his mind about what he should do

after a few minutes of silence he finally spoke "let's get inside its quite cold out here"

a small smile made it's way to Sarah's face,as she was still waiting for her husband confirm on the thought that have been running in her mind from the first second that she lied eyes on this baby, and just as he noticed that she was staring at him he nodded to her in confirm

her smile grew wider as he turned his sight back to the baby

"welcome to the family little one" he said and kissed her small hand

making her laugh and suddenly all the bulbs of the light pots in the street started glowing brighter turning the dark night in to a nearly looking day time

Sarah and Henry looked around them gasping at the sudden change but then moved there sight back to the baby and smiled

then made there way back in the house ...
