Her Mother's hair was flame red with curls tight to her head, but with the circus in town there were too many red heads to pick her out.

Behind a glass ball was an old woman, wrinkled from the long years, she rested beneath a olive cloak and croaked with a voice like a paper in the whistling wind, "Would you like to see your mommy, Sophie?"

She looked around to make sure no one was too close and then she whispered that she had a speical secret way of finding my mum.  All I had to do was walk with her, into the back of the tent.
