There she stood Miss Maria Merryweather. I'm not supposed to feel anything towards a merryweather but felt sorry for her she looked so lost up there placing a rose on her mother and father's grave. It must be unbearable, I mean it was hard for me to lose my mother but both parents? It is unfair that a girl so young and so pretty has to go through that and she is rather pretty in her black dress, her red hair loosely put in a ponytail. I had the urge to go over to her after she looked at me with so much sadness in her eyes but to prevent myself from making that mistake I left.
Since father had lost all his money and the house. Miss heliotrope and I are leaving for the countryside to live with my uncle sir Benjamin Merryweather. A lot of thoughts and worries are swirling through my mind but one I keep pausing on is the boy I saw at my father's burial. I suspect he's handsome though it was hard to tell under his mask but I could still see his eyes, it is hard to explain the feeling I get when I think of those eyes. It's not likely I will see him again. My bags are now packed with all my clothes and things I could keep including my father's book 'the ancient chronicles of moonacre valley' a storybook.
'The Merryweather's carriage should be passing through any minute! We cant let her go!' I shouted at my um.. friends? No not friends more like hunting companions. I cant let father down but I really don't want to capture her. I've already made my decision I'm going to capture her. I only think shes pretty anyway its not like im in love with her. Shes a merryweather its because of her family that we're in this mess anyway so she'll have to pay. Just then I saw the carriage pulling up to the gates the clueless driver got out to open them. This was my chance I climbed up onto the carriage and looked down the side. Perfect she was looking out the window! I grabbed her shoulders and tried pulling her out but she was moving too much not to mention screaming. I tried again but she stabbed her needle into my hand. It was so sore my hand shot back to my side but she had a tight grip on the needle so I ended up with a slash right down my hand.'ahhhh' I shouted 'you witch!' suddenly the carriage sped off and I was thrown off it. I tried to run before the gates close but it was too late.'ahhhh' I shouted again. The four of us ran back through the forest. 'Robin! It's your father!'I hear tom shout from in front. I sped up and got there just in time for him to look at me and say 'what did I do to deserve a dolt for a son?' Great! So I disappointed him again. Imagine what he'd say if he knew what was going through my mind. I'd probably get kicked out like my sister. For being a traitor or in my sisters case following your heart.
My room at sir benjamin's manshion is beautiful! I've never seen anything like it! The last few days I've been trying everything to occupy my mind like reading, playing the piano even learning French! But I just cant stop wondering about why those bandits wanted me? And was it weird that I got goosebumps when I heard my bandits voice? Today I'm going riding with uncle Benjamin. I've never even gone near a horse before but uncle says periwinkle is a good horse.
I'm so glad I did periwinkle is precious and I love her! Uncle has gone home so I have decided to check out the forest, to see why I have to be kept out.
