Episode 2 - Version 4
They arrived at their father's house at 6: 00 p.m. Robert
had two bags and their father asked what was in them and Robert said
"Clothes". Then their father asked why they had so many clothes.
Orla said "We are giving clothes to the poor because they were
to small Robert and I". They went to bed at 11:00p.m. And got up
at 9:00a.m. the next morning. Their Father was surprised to see them
up so early and asked was there something wrong . Orla said"they
just wanted to go into town and do some shopping. Robert came down with
the bag on his back and their father asked where he was going with the
bag of clothes and Robert said "that Orla and himself where going
to give them to the poor. Orla and Robert decided that they did not
want to have any breakfast because they were in too much of a hurry
and went straight into town.
As Robert was running he tripped over a piece of metal lying on the ground. He could not stand up for a minute and when he did he was not able to run. The man was getting closer so Robert and Orla hid. They had about a minute to hid because the man was very slow and could not keep up with them. They hid in different places. The man came around the corner and could not see them so he went away. When he was out of sight Robert and Orla came out and continued on down the alley and onto a street. Then they saw the man again and they ran to hide but he saw them and he started running and shouting after them.
This time the man was able to keep up with them because
of Robert's injury. They ran all the way to the train station and when
they got to the ticket distributor they asked for a ticket for the train
that was in the station. They got on just in time and in a few seconds
the train was moving and the man was waving and shouting 'stop, stop',
but they went on. Then I asked a person on the train where it was going
and he said Waterford.
