This is my first Secret of Moonacre story. I'm not sure if I should put it here or in the Little White Horse so I'll see if I get any reviews here and if not I'll move to the Little White Horse.
This is (from Robin's view) every time he and Maria meet. This is entirely based on the movie. I haven't even read the book yet.
I watched the funeral party making their way slowly down the street, toward me. I jumped up into one of the oversized trees lining the graveyard.
My eyes scorched through the crowd of people, searching for the one, the Moon Princess. Only a few days ago me father had told me other the death of a Merryweather man. He had said that the man was in debt and had nothing to give his only daughter. She would be moving to Moonacre to live with Sir. Benjamin, her only living relative. I was to "dispose" of her before she could even leave London.
Beside the coffin was a girl. A rather small one at that, with untamable red hair wearing a black dress, appropriate, I would say, for a funeral. Her eyes, grey, I saw, were clouded over with unheard tears. This couldn't be she. This girl, though the only one that could be a Merryweather, was too small and meek looking. She looked at if one touch could make her fall into pieces on the floor. If she was the Moon Princess this would be easy.
My heart filled with anger, this girl was a Merryweather. I was trained, like a dog some would say, to hate the whole lot of them, especially any Moon Princesses. I should just jump down and kill her now. But I couldn't with out causing a great disruption.
I jumped from one tree to the next; it almost, just almost felt like home. My eyes never left the girl's figure. When I reached a gondola I jumped down and rested against one of the huge, marble, pillars.
The priest's mouth moved although I couldn't hear the words. The girl stepped forward and threw one of the reed roses she was clutching to her chest into the grave. She then gently placed the other rose onto the gravestone next to it.
In that moment she turned her head slightly over her shoulder, catching my eye. A distant curiosity cleared her eyes temporarily of the sorrow. I met her gaze with my dark eyes, glaring with all the anger in my heart. I suppose I was giving her a silent warning that she would soon be killed. When she turned away from me to look at her worrying governess I ran. I already knew I had missed my chance, she knew I was there. I had messed up, father would be furious when he found out…
I know this was a really short chapter; the others will probably be longer because there is actual dialogue. Well the next chapter won't be all that much longer because it's just the carriage scene.
