Chloe Plays With Christina ~part 1~

IMG_0963I walked around the room, scouting out a good place to sit down and play with my new doll, Christina.

IMG_0964Coconut, wanting to be a part of the fun, tagged along at my heels.

IMG_0969“This looks like a nice spot!” I smiled to myself as I found soft pillow in the corner of Madison’s room.

IMG_0972“What do you think, Christina?” Christina is my new best friend. I love her so much!

“Perfect,” Christina replied sweetly from my arm.

IMG_0973I sat down and got comfortable, then released my grip on Christina. Coconut jumped up and cuddled under my arm.

IMG_0976“Let’s play, Christina!”

*Let us now SWOOSH into the world of playing…*

IMG_0977Christina was a young orphan girl living in Toy World. Despite the unfortunate situation of being abandoned, she was not alone. Her companion was a toy dog, and the two loved each other like siblings.

IMG_0978The dog, named Coconut, took care of Christina like her own.

IMG_0979She always guarded Christina when they slept in their pillow lean-to.

IMG_0980And whenever a neighbor was kind enough to give them some leftover food, Coconut always made sure Christina had enough before Coco herself ate.

IMG_0981Christina grew up five years under the loving care from Coconut.

IMG_0982To her, Coconut was not just a dog. Coconut was her teacher, her mother figure, her best friend.

IMG_0983Coco taught Christina many life lessons, including respect, honesty, courage, and humility.

IMG_0984Together, they faced the cruel world bravely.

IMG_0985One day, when Christina had just turned nine years old, Coconut was off to find food. A gust of wind from the overhead fan blew up a little dust which stang Coconut’s eyes, and she couldn’t see where she was going.

The horse had run off from its owner and wasn’t looking where it was going either. Blinking rapidly, Coconut stumbled into a passing horse’s path.

IMG_0987And was trampled.

“COCONUT!!!” Came the ear-piercing scream from Christina when she turned around. Running to her, Christina knelt down and began to sob.

Her teacher – friend – mother figure – was dead.

IMG_0988What on earth could she do? How could she survive without Coconut?

IMG_0989A passing young, mini-doll peasant came strolling by and heard Christina’s sobs. “Why, little girl, whatever is the matter?” She asked.

IMG_0990“Are you alright? Why are you crying?”

Christina did not know this woman. Coconut had warned her about stranger danger. But Coconut also taught her about God, and a teeny tiny little voice inside of her told her it was OK to trust this lady. Maybe God had sent this peasant woman to help her!

IMG_0989“I’m an orphan,” Christina began quietly. “I was abandoned when I was four years old. Then a wonderful God-send came and helped raise me. But she just died. So now I am alone.”

“Oh, poor child! I…I…” The peasant woman was deep in thought for a minute. “I’m Miss Montoya. I don’t have much to offer you. No expensive toys or store-bought clothes. But you can come and live with me, and I’ll take you in.”

IMG_0991Christina wrapped her arms around Miss Montoya gratefully.

“Oh, yes! I would love that! Thank you!”


IMG_0993“This is my modest home. It is not much, for I am very poor, but I am just grateful to have a roof over my head and a small job to keep food on the table.”

Much of a table, indeed, Thought Christina. It was a little stool with a peice of cloth draped over it! Still, it is much better than nothing. How wonderful it is that Miss Montoya is taking me in.

IMG_0994There was a large blanket rolled up to resemble a bed in a corner, and Christina wondered where she would sleep. Probably on the floor, she thought to herself. Surely there won’t be much room for both of us on the tiny pallet. But I’m used to sleeping on the ground.

IMG_0995There were some cabinets in the other corner, which looked about the nicest thing in the entire room.

IMG_0996“Here, dear, it isn’t much, but I bet you are starving.” Miss Montoya came back from frying an egg for her outside over a small fire.

IMG_0997“Come and eat.”

IMG_0998She slid a small mug of water to her as well. “Thank you so much, Miss Montoya,” Christina thanked her happily.

IMG_0999That night, it turned out there was enough room for both Miss Montoya and Christina. She gave her a big hug.

It looks as last Christina has a mother figure in her life again!

But what will happen to Christina in the future? Stay tuned!

To be continued…

P.S. Madison here! What do you think of Chloe’s new hairstyle? I love it so much! Her curls are SO cute this way! I’m keeping her hair like this, it looks amazing on her!

    Awww! This was such an adorable photostory! I love it! And Chloe’s curls look so cute! That’s how I curl Rebecca and Caroline’s hair; I like little, more natural curls more than thicker curls. It looks more like naturally curly hair.
    I can’t wait to see the next part of this photo story!

    Wonderful story! *Applauds* This reminds me of a book I am reading! It is called One For The Murphy’s, and I have to say……. it is a good book! It is about a foster child who moved into her foster home because he stepfather abused her and her mother and her mother is in the hospital. She is trying to find a way to fit in at the home AND at school. I cant tell you anything else! 😛 You need to read it!!!!!!! Well that’s enough ‘fangirling’ for one night! Have a great rest of your day!

      Thanks, Halo! That sounds like such a cool book! I just finished reading a a good book, too! It’s called God’s Tribesman. It’s the story of an Indian tribe who comes to know Jesus, and the son of the tribe’s chief ends up traveling all around the world to preach the Gospel and evangelized India. It was really good. 🙂
      Thanks! Bye! 🙂

    pardon me for asking, but why do your dolls have such sad backstories? jasmine has it, the new doll has it. not meaning to be mean or anything.

      I wanted each of my dolls to be unique, and since I’m a story writer, I wanted a little bit of drama. When I asked for Jasmine for my birthday, I had a backstory planned for her so I could have dramatic photo stories. Even though her backstory is a little sad, she’s a nice doll. 🙂 And was Chloe’s backstory sad? I don’t remember if I made her backstory sad…she was just “adopted from an orphanage”.
      And no, you’re not rude/mean at all! 🙂

    My MAG 56 named Violet says you should do a indoor/outdoor photoshoot of Chloe. They are twins.

      Chloe agrees! I took some pretty shots of her with her hair up in pigtails. Maybe I should post those!

You have a voice. I'd love to hear it!
