An Unexpected Arrival: Part 2

Hi! I FINALLY had time to take the pics for Part 2 of An Unexpected Arrival. I couldn’t find the shirt that Hope was wearing or the skirt Surjan was wearing in Part 1. Sorry about that. 😦 Anyway, enjoy!

PART 2

—————————————————————————————————

Ava smiled at Hope. Then, she turned to lead the new girls inside.

Suddenly, a voice called out, “Wait for me!” I looked to see a little girl who looked about 8, running behind her sisters. She had long brown braids swinging behind her.

I smiled and said, “What’s your name?” She looked at me shyly and said, “Virginia. But you can call me Ginny.” I grinned at her. “Pretty name!”

I hurried after the other girls, Ginny following me.

As we walked in the door, I heard ML whisper to Ava much too loudly, “Where on EARTH are they going to sleep?”

Hope heard her and immediately looked worried. “It’s okay.” I said to her. “We’ll figure it out.” She smiled gratefully at me.

We all walked into our bedroom. Everyone found somewhere to sit or stand. Some of us just sat on the floor.

“So. Explain.” ML said tersely. “Mary Lynn!” Ava said, turning to Hope and her sisters. “I’m sorry about her.” she said.

“It’s okay. I understand.” Hope said. She gave a shaky breath. “We came from my aunt and uncle’s house. They took us all in after our parents died. They were our only relatives. Then, my uncle lost his job, and couldn’t afford to keep all of us. We wanted to stay together, so he said we would have to look for somewhere else to live. That was when Clara saw our newspaper ad: 4 girls to a good home. Can work. She called and said she would take us. So now we are here.” Hope finished.

“Oh.” ML said in a small voice. “I didn’t know. About your parents and everything. I’m really sorry.”

“It’s okay.” Hope said.

Yep, I found another doll! This one is a Disney Animators Belle doll renamed Ginny (can you guess who she is named after?)  I found her at Goodwill for $2.35! 🙂 Stay tuned for a post about her!
