So he suggested they wait until the war was over—which he meant was not going to be long. Now they had waited for three years and the war had no end in sight. They both longed for a child that seemed to never come, both of them in very different ways. She would talk about it constantly while he would listen as the husband and caretaker he was, but he would never utter a word or complain himself.
He was simply not brought up that way. It was not suitable for a man of his position.
Instead, he had his own little ritual. Every morning before Mr. He would open the door and look at the empty crib and the rocking chair in the corner and he would imagine his baby lying in the crib or his wife sitting in the rocking chair, singing for the baby until it fell asleep. So it went on every morning for three years.
While the world was fighting outside, he kept the dream alive inside. And so it was this particular morning, too, when he woke up and prepared himself to go off to work. He washed his face, trimmed the mustache with a pair of scissors, put on his uniform, looked at the clock in the small pocket in his vest and then peeked into the nursery—while stuffing the pipe—before he went downstairs for his morning coffee and toasted bread.
Normally, that is before the war, he would get a sausage and even maybe some bacon to go with the toast, but these days he was satisfied just to get some real bread and—well not real coffee—but something that was nearly as good.

Song for a Gypsy (The Eye of the Crystal Ball – The Wolfboy Chronicles) Neither does she know that she is a gypsy or that she is going to be.
He kissed his wife as always, put on the uniform jacket, looked at his watch a second time, because a train station manager is always on time, and then he put the pipe back in his mouth and opened the beautiful hand-carved wooden door that separated them from the outside world and its madness.
A small, braided basket right in front of his feet. Schneider could hardly believe his eyes. But since his wife had seen it too, it had to be true. Now, who would leave a big nice basket like that in these days when it was hard to get anything at all? Schneider said and kneeled beside the basket to get the small envelope. Schneider looked at each other with great confusion. Now what was all this? Schneider lifted some of the blanket and the most beautiful sight met her. That of a sleeping baby girl only, three weeks old. Her hair was black as the night and her skin soft and smooth.
She was breathing heavily and smiling in her sleep. Schneider said and looked under the blanket as well. It was hard to tell exactly what he felt when he saw the little face but that was always difficult to know with him.
In the beginning he felt like he would fall off any minute since the griffin kept rising up and down several feet as he beat his wings to stay airborne. Books by the author: Write a customer review. Without being able to fly it would easily become a target for creatures like the black dragon. Why are the trees not bending before me on my path? When she is not writing or reading, you'll find her surfing and watching the dolphins play in the waves of the Atlantic Ocean.
That was what Mrs. Schneider had come to learn over the years. But this time she knew they felt the same thing. She recognized it in his eyes. It was instant love for this little girl that someone had left for them as a gift. As a true blessing in the middle of the worst of times. Schneider said, and Mrs. Schneider never thought about it twice. Inside the house they unpacked the little girl and Mr. Schneider hid the blanket, basket and letter in the attic so no one would find it.
Finally, they both thought as they held each other and stared at her until she woke up, finally someone was sleeping in the crib. They just held Sara in their arms and took turns at feeding her the bottle and tickling her tummy. Over the next twelve years, Sara grew up to be a young girl. But Sara did have a good heart to her, her mother kept saying, when the neighbors complained about her climbing their trees, stealing their apples or destroying their rosebushes.
She always seemed to get into trouble with the other kids and she had a hard time sitting still during classes.
Then one day a teacher gave her a book. Then she asked for another one, and the teacher gave her a new one. As the years went by, she read more and more. Her teachers encouraged her to do so.
