I began running full-speed toward my sister, overjoyed with the thought of her actually being here.
My sister stepped out the lanai door, and my eyes were instantly drawn to her fuzzy slippers. Wait, what? Big sis would never, ever, in a million years wear shoes with bows on them.
Wait a second… My eyes trailed up her legs and to her face.
That was definitely not my sister.
I stopped in my tracks, feeling devastated. All of my hopes had soared for nothing.
“Taryn?” she asked in curiosity. “I thought I heard something outside; what are you doing out here?”
I didn’t know what to say. Jasmine was shivering, her legs trembling from the cold but determined to find out what I was doing outside the house in the middle of the night – or early morning. I swallowed uncomfortably, knowing I had better tell the truth.
“I was running away,” I croaked.
Jasmine didn’t look hurt or even confused, like I thought she would; she looked understanding and curious all at the same time.
I spoke up quickly. “I know you probably won’t understand; but I had to. This – this isn’t my home,” I sighed. “I don’t belong here. I need to go back to the American Girl Doll Orphanage.”
“Oh, Taryn,” Jasmine was compassionate and caring. “Please don’t feel that way. You do belong here.”
I shook my head. “You don’t understand…”
“I do,” Jasmine nodded. “When I first came, I didn’t like it here either. I was adopted from an American Girl Doll Orphanage, too.”
I stared at her, wondering whether she was going to tell me a personal story or continue to ask my why I wanted to run away. She went with the first route.
“I had to develop thick skin, I guess. On my first day there, pretty much the entire orphanage made it their personal mission to make me miserable.”
“What?” I spluttered. “Why? Why you? You’re so nice!”
“Thanks,” she laughed at the unexpected compliment. Then her smile faded. “I don’t know… Maybe because I had replaced McKenna. Either way, the other “Saige” dolls and I who arrived weren’t treated very nicely – at all. It got worse as time grew on, because the other Saige dolls were being adopted until I was the only one left at that particular orphanage. Everyone singled me out and bullied me, and I didn’t even do anything to them!”
I could see tears glisten in Jasmine’s eyes as she looked away. “I didn’t think I could ever forget the hurtful words they had said to me.”
“You didn’t tell the adults?” I wondered. True, telling adults wouldn’t have been my first option either, but it would’ve been pretty necessary in Jasmine’s case.
“Oh, no, how could I? I was sure the bullying would’ve gotten worse. I just kept on being miserable until the first of June. I decided to develop thick skin and give everyone everyone else a taste of their own medicine. I began to say mean and hurtful things back to them. I convinced myself that sticks and stones could break my bones, but words would never hurt me anymore. After a while, a few others began to join me, and pretty soon the entire orphanage was divided between my side and the main bully’s side. I thought being mean back would help me feel better, but it didn’t. Either way, I kept on feeling more and more miserable until finally, finally – I was adopted by Madison. But all that bullying does something to you, I guess. I came here acting just like the other dolls at the orphanage; mean and rude and saying hurtful things. I don’t even know why.”
I could never imagine Jasmine as mean. She was too nice! Sure, she could be classified as a super girly-girl fashionista, I guess, but that didn’t make her mean. You could say she had character flaws in some areas, but who doesn’t? Either way, never in my wildest dreams had I imagined that Jasmine could ever be unkind and rude.
I didn’t say anything as Jasmine continued, “Emelie was adopted from a different orphanage than I was, but when we met, I was mean to her, too. I was mean to everybody. I didn’t want to be here, either, Taryn. And – I’ve never told anyone this, but-“
I held on breathlessly to her next words.
“I planned on running away, too. I didn’t trust them. I didn’t want to feel how it felt to be bullied again and have everyone else team up against you – what if they were nice one moment and then bullies the next? Bullying was all I knew, so I kept on being mean and rude and planning on running away as soon as I could.”
Jasmine smiled, still staring off into the distance as the biting wind continued to whip at her legs. “But as time went on, I began to see that everyone here carried something I didn’t; something real, not just an emotion. It was joy, true joy, which I hadn’t felt… ever. I decided to stick around and find out what it was.”
“Did you ever find it?” I asked. “True joy, I mean?”
“Yes!” Her eyes sparkled against the freezing cold. “On Christmas Eve, 2013, after a crazy event of miracles and God coming through for us all when it looked like all hope was lost – I decided to accept Jesus into my heart. He’s my True Joy, and He healed my heart that was broken by the bullying at the orphanage. I don’t have to act that way anymore; Jesus gave me new life.”
I smiled at her. She did seem indescribably happy for almost no reason.
“Now, I couldn’t imagine being anywhere but here,” Jasmine finished. “I would never want to run away in a million years. I’m loved here; I have family here. All my friends loved me no matter how mean I was to them and showed me how to live a wonderful life full of joy no matter what the circumstances are, because we have Jesus.”
She implored my hazel eyes. “Please don’t run away, Taryn. We all love you here. No matter what you’ve been through, we will be your family.”
“It’s – it’s not that,” I tried to explain. “My orphanage doesn’t have lots of mean girls or bullying. It’s not that I don’t like you guys, because you are all really nice; it’s just…”
I broke my gaze away. “This isn’t my home.”
I could feel Jasmine gazing at me with her piercing blue eyes full of care and solicitude. “May I ask why?” she urged gently.
“I – I have a sister,” I blurted. There. I said it. “She’s back at the orphanage.”
“Ohhh!” Jasmine nodded slowly as if a mystery had been discovered. “Ohh, that makes sense!” Then her voice gave way to sincere compassion. “Taryn, I am so sorry that you were separated from your sister. I can’t even imagine how that must feel.”
That’s right. She couldn’t. No on here could. Being torn away from my big sister was the deepest hurt I had ever experienced in my entire life.
Jasmine wasn’t done. “I know you must be feeling really sad and confused. But everyone here loves you and wants to be your family. Please don’t run away.”
Jasmine pulled me into a warm hug. “Please.”
I hugged her back, wanting to cry but telling myself that was silly. “Okay,” I murmured, even though my heart was breaking. I would never see my sister again.
“Come on,” Jasmine beckoned after a while. “Let’s get inside. I’m freezing!”
I followed her in, still feeling like I needed to let loose another round of sobs but holding them in anyway. Life was going to go on whether I felt like it or not. I had to move on.
Even if that meant saying goodbye to big sis forever.
The next morning, things were pretty calm. Jasmine was maintaining her splits while Coconut was having fun annoying her and getting in the way.
Emelie was absorbed in reading a good book to her doll, Emma.
Cécile, whom I quickly realized was the most responsible and mother-like of the bunch, was straightening up the room.
Josefina was hardworking and sweet, and she was helping Cécile spiffy up by hanging clean clothes up on hangers.
Chloe and Ellie, the two adventurers, were taking a selfie to document the first day of what they had been calling “Mission: X”… whatever that was.
Fun-loving and goofy Molly, however, spotted her chance for a photobomb.
“Ugh, real mature, Molly!” Ellie snapped after she looked over the picture. Molly just stuck her tongue out and made a face while Chloe bursted into giggles.
Me? I was desperately trying to get hold of the American Girl Doll Orphanage.
“What do you mean you’ve never heard of it?!” It was all I could do to keep from screaming. For the fourth time in a row I had dialed a number related to the AGD Orphanage but had been wrong.
“Please, do you have any idea what the number could be? I’ve done tons of research and this is the fourth number I’ve tried…”
“I’m sorry, ma’am, I can’t help you,” the snappy voice on the other end cut me short.
“You don’t know how important this is to me,” I whispered helplessly.
“I’m sorry,” the voice grew softer. “I just can’t help you.”
“Thanks anyway,” I mumbled, pressing the end button.
When I looked up, Cécile was scolding Chloe and Ellie. “You guys seriously haven’t made your beds yet? Don’t even think of going off to play with them looking like a rat’s nest. And Molly, come get your stuff off this desk and put it where it goes.”
“Sorry!” Chloe squealed, who hated getting in trouble or disappointing people. She scurried up her bunk bed to obey Cécile.
Ellie, on the other hand, was not so easily swayed. She was a strong fighter who stood her ground, I observed. “And since when were you in charge?” She demanded defiantly. (Nope, that’s not a misspelling of definitely – it’s defiantly. The adverb derivative of defiant. ;) )
Cécile rolled her eyes. “We’ve been over this. ‘Cause I’m the oldest.”
“That doesn’t mean a thing. Besides, it’s a holiday. No school, no responsibilities… I’m not making my bed if I’m on holiday.”
“Ellie Mae, if I go get Madison I can guarantee you that she’s going to make you go make your bed,” Cécile told her as Molly grabbed her things off the desk.
“I’m done!” Chloe sang as she scuttled down her ladder. “Mission: X can’t wait any longer! Let’s go!”
Ellie shot Cécile a smirk before grabbing Chloe’s hand and leading her outside. “Wait for me!” Molly cried, dashing after them.
“Hey!” Cécile squeaked. “You guys don’t even have your coats on!”
But the three were already running out the door. “Oh, Ellie Mae,” Cécile sighed, relapsing into silence. She turned to me and smiled. “Sometimes I wonder how I’m even related to that girl,” she laughed. “Then I remember that I’m not.”
“Wait – you’re not?” I wondered, quite confused. “I thought you guys were all sisters.”
Cécile shook her head, chuckling. “Oh no, not at all! Only Molly and Josefina are my adopted sisters. Everyone else are my roommates – we just live together, but we’re not sisters.” Then she smiled. “But we all love each other, despite some people’s craziness. We’re all family.”
I felt loads better. I didn’t have to give up my sister after all! I wasn’t getting seven other sisters. I was just getting a new home… without big sis. Despite my sorrow about leaving my sister, it was if a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders.
“Oh – did you think we were all your sisters?” Cécile asked sweetly.
I nodded, feeling pretty silly.
“Haha, that’s okay,” Cécile smiled. “Maybe one day Madison will make us all sisters, but even if she doesn’t, we’re all family. Welcome to the family, Taryn.”
I looked down at the phone in my hand. I hadn’t met Madison yet – she seemed like a pretty busy person. Was she nice? If she had adopted so many dolls like us from the orphanage… maybe one more couldn’t hurt. Would she consider – no, no, the idea was crazy. Never mind.
All of the sudden, we heard the front door slam with cries of “Mission abort!” and footsteps racing to safety inside. Cécile turned toward the noise in annoyance.
I placed my phone down. It was time to take a break from trying to get in touch with big sis. I looked up at the three out-of-breath, panic-stricken dolls bursting through the doorway.
Molly was the first to crash on the floor, huffing and puffing.
Ellie and Chloe leaned heavily against a wall, gasping for air and doubling over with exhaustion.
“That was lucky,” Ellie panted breathlessly. “Are you okay, Agent Z?”
“This is bad,” Chloe wheezed back in hopelessness. “Really, really bad. It’s all my fault.”
“We’re all at fault, Agent Z,” Ellie placed her hand on Chloe’s shoulder. “That’s just the way the cookie crumbles.”
“I’ve jeopardized the entire mission,” Chloe shook her head miserably, still breathing hard.
“Don’t be so hard on yourself,” Ellie reassured. “I say we travel by shadow. We cannot back down now.”
Chloe looked up in horror. “Are you insane?! It’s too dangerous to go back!”
Ellie’s eyes were fierce. “It’s too important to leave behind.”
“Um, English, please?” Cécile asked with and eyeroll. “Are you guys playing a game?”
Just then, the dolly doorbell rang, and all three heads turned to look. “That’s no game,” Ellie answered in terror. “That’s her!”
“Who?” I questioned.
“The random person walking up to our door,” Chloe explained. “It could be anyone. An assassin, a spy, the boss of an evil headquarters. We’ve been spying on her. Worst of all, I dropped our important notebook of clues on the ground and in trying to grab it, I was spotted. Whoever she is knows we’re here and has access to our notebook! Mission X is in jeopardy!” She cried.
Just then, Coconut decided to drive Jasmine insane. “GET HER OFF OF ME!” Jasmine screamed, not having any particular liking toward Coconut.
Cécile rushed to help Jasmine while the dolly doorbell rang a second time.
“I’ll get it,” I offered, seeing as she was busy with Coconut, and Ellie, Chloe, and Molly were afraid of whoever was at the door.
I hurried down the hall. “Coming!” I called to the doll who stood outside.
I began to open the door…
… Never dreaming that I would recognize the doll who stood on the other side.
I swung the door open, and we both gasped.
“Taryn? Is that you?”
omg, is that…?Did you get number 65?
She is so cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That’s actually #39! :D Isn’t she?
Oh, sorry I’m terrible when it comes to the numbers!LOL!
She really is!

You have been nominated for the ‘The One Lovely Blog Award!’
Thank you SO much! ❤️

MUST. HAVE. PART 5. Can’t. breathe. need. part. 5 *faints* *comes back alive*
OMG WHATS HER NAME???
LOLOL! I’m so glad you’re looking forward to it!
Okay, for everyone wondering what her name is, you must decipher this code.
Remove all the X, Y, M, and S letters and you will find out her name. :D
I figured it out… except… is that how you’re spelling it?
Oh, whoops. *smacks forehead* Y is actually part of the name… XD New code! XD
Remove all the G, B, and H letters. XD
Hahaha.. I thought that might be a mistake! :D I just had never seen it spelled like that before! (I won’t type it… though I almost did. That way everyone has to suffer through your rather easy code *evil laugh*. I love codes. In fact, there’s a really easy one to type things but harder to decode. Like this: O vsmy esoy yp dlur pm ,pmfsu@
^ figure that out!
LOL! XD (Hahaha! Oh wow, I can’t decode that! That is hard! XD)
I found her name! I think there is a extra O tho
Ooh, smart! ;) Oh dear, there is? *smacks forehead* That’s it, I’m done writing code XD
OH! OH! YOU DID GET TWO DOLLS!
*calms down* Ahem, I mean, congrats on her, Madi! I wonder what her name is….. PART 5 NEEDED!
P.S: Where did you get Taryn's hat? It's so cute!
Hehehe! :D :D Part 5 is coming soon! Thanks so much! :D
P.S. It’s from the Urban Explorer outfit from DreamWorld Collections on Amazon.com! I really like it. :D
That comment from Staff was mine. I haven’t been here for awhile, so I don’t really know what’s been up. Sorry, Staff. ? I don’t know what happened, the name was there and I didn’t notice it till I hit post, so I couldn’t fix it.
By the way, I thought all your dolls were sisters.
Oh no, I’m so sorry! My comments have been having a little problem lately (check the sticky post at the top of the home page for more info). May I ask which browser you’re using that the problem happened in? I’ll edit Staff’s name to yours ASAP. :D
Wow, really? LOL! I’m thinking about making them all sisters… that would be fun. :D
I’m using Safari on my iPad
Thank you so much for letting me know!
OMG! Emerlie looks just like number 65! She’s adorable!
Isn’t she cute?! :D
EEEEKK!!!! Could it be….. Taryn’s sister?! I can’t wait for part 5!! Such a thrilling adventure! I love the paper tongue you used for Molly’s photo bomb! Such a great idea!!!!!!! And I never knew that’s the true way to speak defiantly… thank you so much for that clarification!! ?

Oh. My. Gosh!!!!! ? You got another doll!!!! #39 is super cute-a lot of bloggers have her. What’s her name? This is such a plot twist! I totally thought she was going to be #61. Eek! You are evil, Madi!!!!!
P.S. Someone else’s info was already filled out again. Just thought you should know! ?
I know, right? I’ve been seeing #39 EVERYWHERE on the blogosphere! :D :P LOL! Hehehe! ??
P.S. Thank you SO much for letting me know! Can you tell me which browser you’re using that it’s happening in? My server company hasn’t been able to do much for the problem because they don’t know what browsers the problem happens in.
I figured out the code. Her name is… Taylor? Taylor and Taryn! That’s so cute! Do you happen to like Taylor Swift? Just wondering. I’m a total Swiftie. ? It’s true! She’s everywhere! Also, scratch what I said earlier-I thought she was going to be #62, not #61, lol. :P
P.S. I use Safari. Hope that helps! ? ?
You figured it out! ;D Haha, I actually don’t like Taylor Swift, but the name Taylor is really pretty! :D And LOL ;) :P
P.S. Yes, that helps tremendously! Thank you so much for letting me know!

Just hurry up. Did you find the quote yet? :D What kind of special post (please, please, please a hint? It’ll make up for your cliffhangers-nocomments-delayedposts) :P
~ Light4theLord (wow, I seriously almost put my real name. Good thing I caught that!)
Oh, and the commenting form was empty this time. JFYI.
YEP! LOL! XD It’ll be the first post of a little series called Taryn and Jazzy’s Fashion Academy! I won’t post it until way after the finale of this series, though. XD LOL!

Aww, this was so cute! Especially the “Mission X” part. XD
Oh man, I’m so sorry! Can you tell me which browser it’s happening in? My server company hasn’t been able to fix it because they don’t know which browsers the problem happens in.
Thank you so much, Sara! Hehehe. ?
I was using Google Chrome before, and now I’m using Microsoft Edge. I haven’t had any problems with it in Safari (on my phone), if that helps. I hope everything gets worked out and fixed! <3
You're so welcome! Hahaha! XD
That helps SO much, thank you! Did the problem happen in Microsoft Edge, too?

LOLOL! I can’t help it, cliffhangers are so much fun. XDXDXD LOL! Part 5 will hopefully be posted on Friday or next Monday! :D ?
When you check out my channel, look at the little thing to the right that says “♥ Awesome channels! ♥” there’s a little surprise i think you’ll like! ;)
Ooh, I can’t wait to check your channel out! ???
Love this Madi!
Is that hairstyle a variation of the one i did on my #39 Julia?
Thanks so much, Kendall! (And ooh, you are RIGHT! You are a very smart detective! ;) I just deleted that part of your comment. ;) )
Yes! Thank you again for telling me how you did it. I’m afraid I didn’t do it as well as you did, though! LOL! It’s definitely a variation.
Okay, cool! :)
Your welcome! That hairstyle looks really pretty! I am not a great french braid-er myself, and that staircase style is awkward to do. You did a great job!
Thank you so much! Haha, same here. :P Aw, thanks! :D
BTW, I forgot to mention this, but I love Cecile’s outfit and hairstyle and everything, and Chloe’s hairstyle!
Also, I think Chloe and Ellie’s mission-thing was hilarious! :)
Cécile says thank you so much! I really love her entire outfit and hairstyle, too! Chloe says thanks as well! :D
Hehehe! I liked putting that part together. XD
You got two dolls?! (Also, I hope you don’t mind I used a fake email, just in case it showed up somewhere else)
Maybe! ;) (No problem! I understand. Sorry the problem hasn’t been fixed yet. :/)
This is so good! I can’t wait for part five!
Thank you so much, Megan!
Yay! It’s finally letting me comment! (It wouldn’t let me comment on parts 2 and 3 and I still had to change this to being me instead of Rutvi).
Anyway, why is it that every part you write gets better and better and better? This story is so good and I’m so thrilled for Taryn! Glad you ended on a happy note too instead of the cliffhanger from last time!!
Yay! I really love your comments. :D (I’m so sorry about that! May I ask which browser that problem happened in?)
Aw, thanks so much, Heather! :D Haha, yeah… :P
This part was so good!! Chloe and Ellie are hilarious!! :D
And wow-you got another doll! I am excited to find out what happens next! :)
Thank you so much, Christian Homeschooler! Hehe, I think so, too! :D
I’m so glad! Part 5 is coming soon!
Oh! Another doll!! Wow! It kinda seemed like that needed to happen, I mean, how else would the story conclude? But another doll?!!! Maybe it’s a friend’s doll? Or it could be a new one?!
I am looking forward to the finale!!
Hehehe! Maybe! Yay, I’m so glad you’re looking forward to it! It’s coming soon! :D
OOOH!!! You got #39!! Isn’t she so gorgeous?! *heart eyes* It’s funny cause at first I thought she was kinda plain, but when I got her I was like – OH MAH GOODNESS SHE IS SO BEAUTIFUL I LOVE HER!!!! XD
I can’t wait to find out what her name is! And also what’s going to happen! :D
Yes, she is SO pretty! Same here! I didn’t like her at all at first, but when I saw her in person I realized she is SO BEAUTIFUL. :D
Thanks so much! Part 5 is coming soon! :D
I HAVE TARYN’S HAT
Okay, I’m good.
MADI. YOU’RE MEAN. MORE.
MWAHAHA! *thunder and lightning* JK! Part 5 is coming soon. ?
And also, it’s not happening in Chrome, the comment-thing.
Thanks for telling me! Which browser did it happen in?
Oh my!!! It’s her sister, I know it!!!! :D I am so excited for part 5!!! AHHH! Post it soon, it’s to suspenseful!! :D
Hehehe! I’m so glad you like it, part 5 is coming soon! :D :D
Ahhhhhhhhh!!!!! SHE’S SO PRETTY MADI!!! :D And the two dolls look like sisters, too. It was a great combination. :D Can’t wait to learn more about her! Horrible cliffhanger but good cliffhanger at the same time, as usual, lol ;) You’re good at cliffhangers. XD
Hehehe, I know! :D :D LOL! ;) Awww, thanks! ???
Oooooohhh! She is so beautiful! Now we have to go take a closer look at #39 on the website. :P LOL! Too cute! Also, I have to say that Taryn looks absolutely stunning in that outfit. Actually all of the dolls look incredible! Great outfit choices! Okay, when Molly stuck her tongue out to photobomb, we seriously LOL’d. So funny and creative! My daughter and I can’t wait for Part Five! We <3 your blog!
ginnie / http://www.fakingitmostly.com
Hehe, she is! :D Taryn says thanks! And thank you so much! I really like dressing my dolls. :D LOL! Thanks so much! Aw, that means so much to me! I am so glad you like my blog!
Loving this story. Sometimes it is rather bleak, but I love how Taryn is learning about different types of families!
I am so glad you like it! Thank you so much! :D

Yelp! I love #39 so much! Taylor is such a cute name – totally psyched for part 5!
Isn’t #39 beautiful? Thanks so much! I hope to have it up by Wednesday!
I know many have already asked this but, when will the finale be posted? Im losing my MIND because of your cliffhanger! Your so evil! XD
Hahaha I am so glad you’re looking forward to it! I literally only have two more pictures to take, but they involve this furniture piece that I ordered twice and is still damaged. :P So I have to figure that out… I want to have it up by the end of this week, though! I’m so sorry for the wait!
YAY A NEW DOLL! :D
Hehe! :D :D
oh my goodness is that who i think it is!!
MAYBE! :D Read the finale to find out!
Did I spot a reference to the song Titanium or is it just me? :P
Probably not because I don’t know what the song Titanium is. XD
HEHE IS THAT GOOD.
