Little Orphan Emmi ~part 5~

(If you haven’t read Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, or Part 4 already please do so this makes sense! 😉 Remember this is set in the early 1900’s but past the Victorian era.)

IMG_5101We did what we planned – slipping through the bars to find where the jail officers kept their food stored for the prisoners since the officer would not let us eat until we told them more about ourselves. Unfortunately, the food was what I had heard Naomi call it, “mystery meat.” I tried it, and threw it right back up. It tasted AWFUL! It looked like raw meat with tarter sauce burnt on it or something!It tasted even worse.

We couldn’t carry on like this! So when the officer fells asleep (miracle, huh?) we escaped.

IMG_5102And ran for our lives!

IMG_5103We ran…

IMG_5104…..and ran….

IMG_5105….and ran…..

IMG_5106….and ran…..

IMG_5107….and ran!

IMG_5108Finally, just as the sun started to set over the pond nearby, we rested in the shade of the tree. It felt good to rest. This warm change in the chilly November wind was nice, but I knew it wouldn’t last long. Winter was coming, and soon.

IMG_5109“Well, I guess we don’t have anything else to do. Acorn is gone, we don’t have any food, and even if we did I’m just too tired to eat anymore. Even talking is draining my energy. Besides, my mouth is dry and I’m thirsty.” I complained. Naomi just focused on breathing.

IMG_5110Finally, Naomi piped up, “Oh my gosh! That’s Mrs. Bunch, a friend of my mama’s! She’ll take care of us, come on!” “And she’s riding ACORN!” I cried.

IMG_5111“Mrs. Bunch! Mrs. Bunch!” Naomi cried. I shyly followed her. “Well if it isn’t Naomi! I haven’t seen you, girl, since forevah! Tell me just what are you youngins’ up to? Who’s your friend?” Mrs. Bunch asked us.

Finally, the whole story came out, how I escaped from the orphanage to finding Naomi to finding Acorn to getting so hungry we went to jail willingly to escaping jail after finding out what kind of food was served their to finding Mrs. Bunch. After taking a deep breathe and an abrupt breath, Mrs. Bunch smiled. “Well I’ll be! You poor kiddo’s must be starving, thirsty, and wearing. I am well ranked in this society and my husband has a well-paying job. Come live with me, girls. You will be treated well, fed well, and raised up to be proper young ladies!” Mrs. Bunch offered.

IMG_5112“We’d love to, ma’am,” I thanked her, speaking for both of us. “Good! Now, you two girls try to fit both on this horse and I’ll give you a ride home.”

Life turned around slightly for Naomi and I. Now if only I could find my mother, and we could live together happily again. All would be well.

To be continued!!

    This is completely off topic, and I apologize for that. But I thought it might interest some of you.
    If you like minis, shrink machines,ponies, or epic stories, you should see what’s going on in Doll Talk at the viviness and ag messageboard (if you’re allowed to of course) we’ve been doing this all day and its reaching its exciting climax. (Let’s just say.. insane minis, thread takeovers, shrink machines, and ponies)

        And I LOVE epic stories! I write them all the time! I even had one about Kit and Molly where they find themselves in Arendelle, and meet Elsa and Anna!

        It mostly stars minis, but the ponies play an important role too

      My mom let me come on here to see if ag had officially announced it yet, and I just have to say please buy from the historical line. I think history is a very important part of our culture, and if little girls who look up to older girls notice they are only going and buying goty and MyAG stuff, their gonna think that historicals aren’t important. Why AG is doing this renaming gig is to make LITTLE girls like the historicals. I honestly LOVE some of what AGs doing. I’m not gonna post the actual outfits here, because I found them on a website where I looked at them and then looked at some other posts and it was way too cussing-ish, but some, not everything else I saw, but some, are on Living A Doll’s Life.
      I love Addy’s new meet, and I personally think what they’re calling Caroline’s party dress is Rebecca’s. I don’t really like Kits new anything, but her meet dress is cute just not right for her time period.
      And madi, love your posts, as always. Everyone on here is my best friends, and I hope you know that. Here’s to never growing up!
