Sophie Mendalin sat in her room for the third hour reading intensely. Her mind more at ease then the hours past. Her only solitude for the time is her room and her books. The children down stairs of Little Luna Orphanage were being rowdy again. They were full of excitement for the annual city parade the upcoming week. The only one not excited was Sophie herself. She disliked large loud crowds. Despite that, she volunteered to take the children to the parade this year for the first time. "Just because I don't enjoy something, that doesn't mean everyone else shouldn't either." she would say. She wanted the children she new for years to be happy. Even if it meant she had to endure the flaws of the city for a few hours.
