Edward clutched the slab of bread in his hand and ran off as fast as he could. He didn’t want the nuns to see him take the food and try to stop him. It was a rarity that any food would be left around at the orphanage without an adult guarding it from prying children’s hands. Most of the children living at the orphanage were constant thieves because they were always hungry and couldn’t resist any food left lying around. Passing the empty kitchen today Edward was fortunate enough to find some bread lying on the table. Like any hungry child, he couldn’t stop himself from taking it. When he was sure nobody was following him, he stopped running. He would have run a bit further, but that would have required strength and Edward lacked strength due to the meager food allowance he received from the orphanage. Food had become scarce and expensive leaving the nuns to buy what they could afford, which was not much.
