"He's such a strange boy he doesn't associate with any of the other children." A harsh voice of a middle aged woman sounded through a shabby little office. The woman's words were shortly followed by the sound of liquid being poured into a glass.

"I know it will only hurt him in the long run if he doesn't learn how to make friends." A much gentler younger female responded thoughtfully.

"I've got a wonderful idea why don't we let him have a pen pal then he can read and write as much as he wants and he can have a friend to talk to." The younger woman said perkily as if she believed that her idea could solve every problem in the world.

Tom watched the two adults discussing him from a hidden spot just outside the room.

"If you want to try it, but don't get your hopes up Martha." The harsh voice of Mrs. Coal, the matron of the orphanage sounded as she took another sip of her gin. "That boy has a list of troubles a kilometer long."

"Alright I'll go tell him right now." She smiled. Tom bolted silently back up to his room. A moment later Martha walked in still smiling.

"Tom, Mrs. Cole and I have a wonderful idea for you. You are such a smart boy and we thought it would be a good idea for you to have a pen pal. Now why don't you start writing a letter to introduce yourself and I will mail it after your done."

"Yes ma'am."

A/N: Further notice any abrasive reviews or anything that I consider flames will be ignored. Any comments or questions will be responded to as quickly as possible. I can not return messages to anonymous reviews as fanfiction has no means to do so if someone would like a question answered with an anonymous review I may(most likely) answer them in a Q and A.
