I was planning to work on the post presenting the winner of the fashion show, but I checked on the scoring, and two of the dolls are tied!
So instead, I have a photoshoot with the mini’s first, and remember to vote if you haven’t! Even if you have already voted, feel free to vote a second time!
Until then, enjoy an account of the mini dolls’ recent adventure!
Molly and Samantha were sitting at their spots on Caroline, their owner’s, bed, chatting softly.
“Well I’m bored,” said Samantha, after a few minutes of small talk, “Clara, Grace, and Caroline are at some sort of fashion show, and Julie went out with Consuelo. I say we go on an adventure!”
Molly stood up, “I’m in! Let’s get the others!”
Soon all the minis were gathered in Grace and Clara’s bedroom.
“We want to go on an adventure!” Sam explained. “Who’s in?”
Both of Kit’s hands went straight up, “Whoop! I’m coming!!” The other dolls nodded in general agreement.
Rebecca, however, sighed, “I don’t want to be left behind, but you’ll have to wait until I change into something more suitable! I can’t chance messing up this nice dress!!”
The minis shrugged and waited for Rebecca to change.
Soon Rebecca was back. The dolls soon agreed to head in the direction of the backyard, and so they set off.
They were walking along smoothly for a while, until Rebecca let out a shriek.
The dolls stopped abruptly, looking in the direction of Rebecca’s shaking, pointed hand.
“C-c-CAT!” She shrieked again.
“Shhhh,” hushed Kit, “we can’t let it notice us! Everyone, quick, get down!!” Kit looked like she was enjoying this sudden and apparent danger.
“Yup, get down and head home!” Rebecca added.
Kit shook her head, “We’ll have to sneak around the cat, and hope she doesn’t notice us!”
The girls, including a reluctant Rebecca, all crouched down as Kit instructed and began to crawl there way towards the cat’s back. Little did they know, the curious feline noticed their antics.
As they began to inch around a scratching board, poor Samantha lifted her head and screeched loud enough to wake the house (that is, if they had been asleep).
Suddenly she was up and bolting away, and the others quickly followed suit.
They ran across the room and behind a barrier as fast as they could, pinning themselves behind it and gasping for breath.
“I think we lost it,” Kit said finally.
Suddenly alarmed, Marie-Grace added, “But where’s Cecile?” The girls’ eyes widened in fright.
Molly, being at the edge of the barrier, peeked around and saw Cecile ambling over to where they were. (She proceeded to careful observe if Cecile had any scratches or strange cat bites that would make her act so casual in such a dangerous moment. She couldn’t find any.)
“Where were you? What happened?” Molly exclaimed as Cecile rounded the barrier corner.
Cecile looked like she was on the verge of a laughing fit, “Well, you see, I’ve been here longer than most of you, and I happen to understand that the likely purpose of this cat was to smell us and find out what we were up to, not to attack!” The other girls gaped.
“And you didn’t tell us?!” Rebecca squeaked.
“I didn’t really get the chance with how suddenly you all acted.”
Kit blinked and cleared her throat, regaining her composure, “Alrighty then, since that’s all well and done, we really should move on…”
The next stop was the door to the backyard. They were excited to see how close they were to their goal, until they realized a problem.
The door was locked, and the lock was several mini-doll-yards above them.
“Well, we’re close enough,” Rebecca decided, “no way we’re getting up there, so we might as well head back.”
“I have an idea!” Samantha chirped. “It’s simple: to get to the lock, we just have to climb this big curtain sheet!”
“Hey, that might work!” Molly agreed.
So Sam began to shuffle her way up the curtain.
But she only got a short distance up before she felt she couldn’t climb any longer, and had to shuffle back down.
“That’s harder than it looks!” she gasped.
“Here, let me try!” Kit offered.
Kit is a little older than Sam, and she made it a little higher, but soon had to stop and come down, gasping like Samantha was.
“What can I say,” she said, “I was never good at rope climbing…”
Molly seemed thoughtful, “Let me give it a try; but I’ll need a little help.”
Soon Molly had been mounted on Cecile’s shoulder with Samantha supporting her from behind. She reasoned it might give her a better start up the curtain. She grabbed hold and wiggled her way off of her supporters to begin the climb.
Her idea proved to be a success! She pulled herself up, the boost by her friend giving her just enough strength, and she was able to lean over and reach the lock, pushing the door unlocked.
When she made it back down, she promptly plopped onto the floor and cried, “Mission accomplished!” between a fit of gasping.
With the effort of all the minis, the door slid open,
revealing their path to the backyard world!
Kit, Sam, and Molly raced through the opening, whooping, while Cecile and Marie-Grace followed, chatting happily, with Rebecca tagging along.
But in her excitement Kit failed to notice a ditch in the concrete flooring.
“Kit!” the girls cried, running to meet her after she caught her foot and fell.
“I’m ok,” Kit assured, a little shakily, “It wasn’t… so bad.”
Marie-Grace had her attention in the distance, “Uh, I’m glad you’re alright this time, but look what’s ahead!”
The minis turned to see a whole plain full of similar ditches, beyond which was a lovely green field.
“Looks kind of dangerous,” cautioned Cecile.
“Looks like fun!” Kit added.
“We’d better head back home,” Rebecca declared.
But the girls headed off anyway, and it was actually pretty fun, if you were careful not to fall. They enjoyed skipping and hopping over the little ruts in the paving.
And soon they reached the end, and came to the large green field they had aspired to reach earlier.
“Wonderful!” Samantha said, upon seeing it. “A perfect place to stop our journey!”
The girls plopped down onto the grass, enjoying it’s soft green shoots. Even Rebecca seemed content, though that may have partially been the result of hearing the words “stop our journey!”
Marie-Grace was staring at the distance again. “This surely is lovely, but you all know that we can never let our owners know that we’re alive.”
“Well, of course!” replied Kit. “That’s common toy knowledge.”
Marie-Grace nodded in the direction of her gaze.
The dollies turned to see Julie and Consuelo off in the distance, who had just rounded the bend to take a stroll in the same field that the minis were in.
“Looks to me like it’s time to go home!” Rebecca asserted. And for once everyone else nodded in thorough agreement. Their daring journey to the backyard had now come to a finish.
I hope you enjoyed the photostory! Let me know what you thought in the comments!
Don’t forget to vote on your favorite outfit in the fashion show, even if you’ve voted once before! I plan to close out the poll in a few days (probably Saturday), and then post the winner with their photoshoot soon after that!
Have a Blessed Day!
