Every day, on my way to work as an assistant seamstress, i pass a shop.
In it there are many marvelous creatures - scaled phoenixes and feathered snakes.
Sometimes I pop into the shop and look around, and talk to the children floor staff, most of whom are around my age - 15. 
But, more than the shimmering fur or the glossy feathers, what has always caught my eye is the small girl in a cage.
Over the four years I've been visiting the shop many creatures have passed from one hand to another, but not her...
She is like me - unwanted.
A child thrown away, sold or made to work.

But times are hard, and one day, the seamstress's shop is forced to close, i now have nowhere to go.
As I walk past the shop, for what might be the last time, i find myself doing the unimaginable - stealing her.

No one notices as I slip the cage with her in it behind my back, no one sees as I walk out of the door like I have every right to.
I turn the corner of the street, before braking out into a run as the adrenalin kicks in.
I try my hardest not to jostle the cage.
Once i reach a deserted ally, I slow down and stop.
I place the cage on the ground, and open the cage door.

"are you OK?" I ask.

hello its me again :) (Smile)  I was going to put the finished cover on deviant art if you want to see it. Obviously I'll have you in the comments, but in order for it to fit the frame of a cover I had to elongate the work a bit but adding in some more at the top...
I hope that isn't counted as 'frankdolling'? as I have never used basses or dolls before, so I don't know whats what. 

I did the work on paint, as I have no fancy software, but I tried my best, and I swear I haven't degraded the lovely quality of your work!

it's fine, and I don't think it counts as frankendolling. I don't mind anyway.

that's how I did mine, on paint. this one was bad in my opinion, it's an old dev.

yeah, you got permission from the base artist and from me, so there's no problem. all you did was make the picture a bit longer. frankendolling usually means adding a bunch of extra stuff and changing up the original, like adding extra limbs and going crazy. so you're good.

*Walking around the street while listening music. Then I see her, and small, sad-looking girl. I come into the shop and buy her. Then, when I come out, I leave her on the floor, smiling at her as gently as I can* Come on, you are free now ^.^
