She looked at the old chest in amazement. How long had this been up here? She thought to herself running her hand over the old leather. She rubbed her index finger and thumb together slowly, feeling the little bits of dust covering them.
Should I open it? She thought to herself. What if grandpa caught me up here? She pushed that thought aside and carefully lifted the trunk. She gasped with wonderment. In the chest were old pictures of precious little babies! Who were these babies and why were their pictures in the trunk? She gently picked up one of the pictures and ran her finger across the delicate face. It was a beautiful baby! In fact, one of the most beautiful babies she had ever seen! She put it down and picked up the little material of lace that lay across in the chest with all the pictures. It felt so frail and light in her hands. She smiled at it, and then her glance was caught by another picture. She picked it up and stared hard at it. The picture she held in her hand was not a baby, but a girl. A beautiful girl with brunette hair and a beautiful smile. She flipped the picture over and on the back was written in dark ink, Evangeline Clair Thomas. She dropped it! Could it be? Could it really be her mother! She stood up and walked back a few steps in shock. When all of a sudden she seen a tall object standing at the doorway of the attic from the corner of her eye. She turned around to get a better look and immediately wished she hadn’t.
