Stranger at the Park~ A Photostory
It was a warm, sunny day, so I decided to bring the kids to the park. Jess and Lana sat on a bench chatting. Or rather, Lana chatted and Jess didn’t pay much attention.
“…and then half an hour later, I saw Samantha dusting AGAIN! I’m telling you, she cleans way too much.” Lana observed, though Jess didn’t seem to notice her talking.
“Humph! I’ve been sitting here doing all the talking while you just sit there staring at nothing! I’d rather be talking to Josefina – even if she always blows her top with me, at least she would respond!” Lana grumbled, and still Jess didn’t say a word.
With a heavy, over exaggerated sigh, Lana leaped to her feet and walked away in a huff.
“Um, hi! You’re one of the girls from that huge family that lives on Daisy Street, right?” A strange girl inquired as she walked up to the bench Jess sat miserably on.
“Oh, yeah. You live across the street from us, huh?” Jess asked.
“Yeah, I’m still kinda new. We moved there in January. Uh, so, do you mind if I sit with you?” The girl wondered.
“Sure, it’s fine.” Jess replied.
“I’m Leia, by the way. What’s your name?” Leia introduced.
“I’m Jess. How old are you?” She asked.
“Oh, I’m 14.” Jess answered, turning her head away.
They sat in an awkward silence for a while, but Leia was determined to get to know her better. “Are you okay?” She inquired.
Jess sighed and closed her eyes. “No, I’m not.”
“Well, if you don’t mind me asking, what’s wrong?” Leia pressed.
“Today marks 6 years since my brother and sister died.” Jess struggled through the words, but she somehow managed to get them out without bawling.
“Oh. I’m so sorry.” Leia said, looking down at her compass.
“H-how did they die?” She inquired.
“In a terrible accident. A cave in.” Jess informed as she stared into space, her eyes wet with tears.
“That’s awful…. Couldn’t someone have tried to get them out?” Leia asked.
“They did, but it was too late.” Jess answered.
“Have you ever lost someone?” Jess inquired.
Leia turned her head and stared into open space. “No.” She answered simply.
“Well, I’d better be going. It was nice to meet you, Jess.” Leia said as she rose to her feet.
“It was nice to meet you, too, Leia. Maybe you could come over sometime?” Jess offered.
“Yeah, maybe. Well, bye!” Leia said with a smile.
Leia walked away and holding onto her compass, she said, “I’m not gonna lose you. I will find you.”
Hiii! I felt like making a photostory today and YAY! Now Leia is introduced! XD I know, it took me forever to introduce her, but I had other plans for her, but then things changed so I was able to make her introductory photostory at last! ;D
I hope you liked it! Have a great day!
I loved it! Introducing photostories are always fun. Aw, poor Jess. 🙁
<3 Miri <3
Thanks so much, Miri! 🙂
I loved this story! What was Leia talking about at the end?
Thank you! 😀 Oh, you’ll find out sometime in the future 😉
That was a great photo story! ? I wonder what Leia meant when she said “I’m not going to lose you. I will find you.” Another part maybe?! ?
I just love your photo stories and your photo story series! They are always so adventurous and interesting!
~ Charity ? ?
Awww, you’re so sweet! Thank you so much! 🙂
There will definitely be another part sometime in the future 😉
Leia looks like me, I cannot wait to see what you guys do and who she is going to find. My name is Maya Raynn and I am enjoying blogging, I am friends with the Bolton girls if you knew them .. We are doing a lot of fun things ..
Hope to see more of you all .. Take care ..
Thanks so much! 🙂
I forgot to tell you that we love your crochet work for the 18 inch girls. My mama used to crochet for the 18 inch girls years ago and had a big store for several years. Now she and I crochet for the mini dolls. We sell on ebay and etsy both and love making them.
I love to crochet now too .. Auynti Helena taught me to crochet, Nana taught Mama, they both crochet and sew.
Hope we can be friends,
Thank you very much! That is awesome that you and your mom crochet, too 🙂
I was so excited when I read the title! I love welcome posts!
Awe, yay! I’m glad you enjoyed it, Mya! 🙂
Who was Leia talking about? Jess is super cute. 🙂
<3 , IrishAG
Hmmm… I don’t know 😉 Yes, she is very cute 🙂
Thanks, Kaitlyn! 😀
that was great!
poor Jess. 🙁
why is leia not a sister?
and what did leia mean at the end when she said “I’m not gonna lose you. I will find you.”
just wondering. 🙂
Thanks so much! 🙂
I just wanted to do something different. I feel like I’d like for my dolls to have some friends instead of all of them being related 🙂
And, I can’t answer that question, but there will be another part sometime 😉
Awesome photostory, Jaclynn! Leia is SO pretty!
Thanks so much, Grace! I quite agree 😉
Cute story! And aw, poor Jess. WHY DO YOUR STORIES HAVE TO BE SO SAD AND AMAZING
Thanks, Rutvi! 🙂
LOLOLOL! I literally laughed when I read that XD Well, at least they’re sad AND amazing, right? XD And don’t worry, all those sad stories I wrote would have had happy endings. I may write sad stories, but they mostly end happy 🙂
Such a sweet little photostory! I feel sorry for Jess.
(And ugh – I can’t stand Lana. I’m glad she left Jess in peace at last.) 😉
Thanks, Lizzy! I know, it’s really sad 🙁
LOL! I know, but I love her at the same time! She makes me laugh XD
Amazing! I love your photo stories! They always get me thinking 🙂 You always have such awesome ideas!
Awe, thanks, L. Rose! 😀
Oooh! That was great! I simply love photostories. And your pictures are looking spectacular! 😀 Leia is so beautiful. I love how you did her hair, it looks amazing!
Thank you so much, Madi! 😀 I’m glad you liked her hairstyle – I never really know what to do to my doll’s hair XD
I LOVE this!!!! Leias hair is absolutely gorgeous!
Thank you SO much! 😀
Nice reveal. Bittersweet story.
Thanks so much! 🙂
This totally reminded me of Once Upon A Time! ‘I will find you. I will always find you.’
LOL! Yes!!! 😀
