Emily jumped behind a mail cart so fast that she bumped into a boy in a faded brown jacket.
 
"Hey!" he said. "Watch where you're going!" And then, "You're an orphan too, aren't you?"
 
"How did you know?" she asked him.
 
He shrugged. "Saw you trying to hide from the Child Catchers, just like I used to do."
