The Story

The tears still streaked down her cheeks as she looked out the window of the train. It was to carry her all the way to Chicago, a long way from where her father was now buried. He had brought her to the Superstition Mountains in search of the Lost Dutchman Gold Mine that was sure to change their future. And it did, but not in the ways her father had hoped.⠀

Securely tucked in her pouch was a letter of introduction to an aunt she never met. The letter explained how her father had passed away and she was now to be the responsibility of her aunt going forward. ⠀

She sank deeply into her seat, resigned to her fate and wondering what her new life would be like.⠀
