“You worthless weed! Fold these clothes NOW!” Cécile was screeching at Emelie.
Cécile shoved a pile of clothes into Emelie’s arms.
“If those clothes aren’t picture perfectly-folded by the time I say ‘done’, you’re in BIG trouble, missy!”
“Yes ma’am!” Emelie fearfully cried.
“What on earth are you waiting for? GET STARTED!!!”
Cécile’s last scream awakened Molly. She peeked one eye open.
Sitting up, she asked, “What’s going on?”
“NOBODY yells at my BFF like that.” Molly wrapped her arm around Emelie protectively.
“Emelie and I are playing a game,” CéCé explained. “We are maids in a rich girl’s mansion. I’m the head maid who’s really grumpy, and Emelie is an indentured servant from England.”
“Oh, so it’s like a game?”
“Yes! Want to join?” Emelie and Cécile chorused.
“Nah, I’m tired, but that is so cool how you turned chores into a game! I like the story line too…oh, hold on! Chloe absolutely must be here – she’d love to write a story about it, stay right there!” Molly ran to find Chloe.
When Molly returned with Chloe, Chloe instantly started a audio recording on my iPod touch I let my dolls use. “I can’t write as fast as y’all play, so I’m recording it on here so I can replay it and write it later,” she explained.
And the game resumed!
Emelie started folding the clothes hurriedly.
“I am done, ma’am!”
Josefina awoke and wanted to be part of the game, too, so she played the rich girl. “YOU WORTHLESS SLAVE!!!” She cried. “HOW DARE YOU SIT IN MY PRESENCE?!!!”
“Indentured servant,” Emelie corrected quietly. “HOW DARE YOU TALK BACK TO ME?!!!! YOU SHALL BE DEARLY PUNISHED!!!”
So a pink ribbon became a terrible horsewhip.
*dramatic English-accent-infused screams*
Throughout the game, the whole entire doll room was cleaned. The drawer was organized,
The beds were made and mini dolls were positioned nicely,
And all the shoes were paired neatly together!
The game was over just as my iPod touch was about to run out of space! In the end, Emelie got adopted by the rich girl’s mom and they became best friends and sisters.
“This will make an AWESOME book!” Chloe gushed. “I’m going to go write it right now!”
The girls were tired from all the cleaning, acting, and playing, so they flopped on the neatly-made beds!
When Jasmine returned, she asked, “What’s going on?! I could hear screams all the way from the kitchen!”
When Molly told her, Jasmine cried,
“WWWHHHAAAAAAAAAAAT!!! Why didn’t y’all call me? I would’ve been PERFECT as the rich girl!”
How do you clean your doll room? Do you make your dolls do it? Hehehe. 😛
