Arabella spent most of her free time volunteering at the orphanage in The Capitol. They didn't really have that many paid employees or money for the orphanage. While the Capitol was rich and wealthy, the rich and wealthy only wanted to spend money on what they liked. And what they liked was fashion, booze, food, parties, and the games. Most of the money orphanages get are from the government, but it's not enough. So it's up to the volunteers and employees to provide the rest of the money the orphanages need. Sure the orphanage is much, much better than the orphanages in other districts, but these are Capitol children and they deserved better than sub-par conditions.
She had just finished cleaning throw up from one of the children's rooms. He had a high fever the night before and threw up all over his bed. It took Ara two hours to clean up the entire mess and replace the sheets, pillows, blanket, and mattress. But at least the boy had a clean bed to sleep in and rest for the entire day. They'd already given him medicine so he should be better within a few hours. One of the good things about living in the Capitol, quick medicines. But the boy would still need to rest to recuperate.
She was on her way to the Laundry room, the bundled up puke sheets in her arms, when she saw a familiar face in the common area. Familiar faces were everywhere, but this one was familiar and unfamiliar in this setting at the same time. He never, never came here. As far as she knew anyways. And though she'd only met him once, there was no way she'd forget his face.
He was playing with the children, though they ranged in age from 2 to 10. This was the toddlers and small children's common room, though any child could come and go. But the teenagers usually liked to stick to themselves unless they had younger siblings.
Arabella stood just outside the doorway and watched him. He looked so good with children and so comfortable with them. It was like he belonged there and had always been there. If she hadn't been volunteering there for so long, she would have thought he was a volunteer himself. She leaned her head against the door frame as she watched him, biting her lips. How was he so good with them? She smiled as she watched him with the kids. This couldn't be real. Was this the same Vixus she'd met at the restaurant?
Before she could leave without him noticing, one of the kids looked up and saw her. "Ara! Ara is here!" the tiny girl said. Caught. Ara smiled. "who's your new friend?" She asked the girl.
