Okay, everyone settle down so I can begin this post! XD
I bet you’re all super happy to see this, huh? I got a splurge of inspiration today and finally figured everything out for the rest of this story! I’m SO excited to get the rest of the story posted and I hope you’re all just as excited as I am! 😀
For the previous part, click here. I just wanna make sure you’re all caught up 😉
As I walked through the streets that warm summer day, I found myself lost in deep thought. Why did I ever leave? Yes, I was terrified, but couldn’t I at least have confessed? Couldn’t I have confided in her?
“Please don’t go, Edmund.” Her pleas rang clear as a bell in my mind. “I don’t want to, but I have to.” I had said. “But why? Can’t you just tell me?” She asked of me as tears filled her striking green eyes. “I can’t. I’m sorry.” Was my vague and ridiculous reply.
“Remember me.” She requested just before she turned to leave. I’ve always remembered you. But did she still remember me? Did she even spare the slightest thought for me, even after all these years of being apart?
“Hello, Nicole.” I greeted, forcing a smile. She was my friend, but I wanted to be alone for the moment.
“Is something wrong?” She inquired.
“It was wrong of me to leave her that way. It’s high time I face her and make up for my mistakes. I thought I could beat this on my own, but I realize I need her now more than ever.” I explained, my heart heavy.
Oooh! I wonder who Edmund could be….? ;D
I hope you liked this part! We’ll get to Liesel in the next installment
It was the biggest night of the entire year – the Duke and Duchess’ Annual Springtime Ball. I had not wished to go because I never did too well at large parties, balls, or anything such as that, but I knew I had to. If I hadn’t accepted the generous invitation – which was shocking I’d even received one – My family and I would have been completely disgraced. So at the ball, I did my best to engage with some of the other rich girls, but that didn’t go so well. I ended up listening more than talking.
I looked behind me and saw a young man watching the men and women dance away to the music.
Wait a second. I knew that face.
My heart was racing and I found it hard for me to breathe. “Calm. Stay calm.” I told myself.
“Please excuse me, ladies.” I said politely with a quick curtsy.
As I hurried toward the exit, someone tapped my shoulder.
“May I have this dance?” That horrid man inquired with a bow.
Knowing how improper it would be for me to refuse, I reluctantly said, “You may.”
We danced in silence for a moment. I didn’t dare speak or even look at him in the eye. I completely and utterly despised him.
“You know why I’m here, Liesel.” He whispered with a threatening tone.
“On the contrary, Frederic, I have no idea why you’re here.” I stated, still not even making eye contact.
“I need you to do something for me.” He began, his eyes squinted and cruel. He continued on to say, “And you will do it, because I’ve got a bit of leverage, which is something you’ll never have on me.”
“And what is that?” I questioned with disgust. “I knew your father. I know what he was and what he did. And I also know how you and your family have tried to hide it all your lives, but the truth has a way of coming out one way or another. Get me what I need, and I’ll keep your little secret.” Frederic offered. I was trying so hard to get the tears in my eyes to disappear. I knew that if I didn’t do what he wanted, he would expose the truth to everyone and our family would be shamed for eternity.
Anger and fear boiled up inside of me and I pushed myself away from him and fled from the palace, leaving Frederic standing alone with a scowl on his face.
That concludes part 1!!! 😀 😀
Day 13 – Meaning behind blog name:
Well, this is already explained, but I guess I’ll say it again ;D Around the time I started this blog I was pretty obsessed with Little House On The Prairie. I remember going over some names for my blog with my mom for a while and she suggested Little House of American Girl. Naturally I really liked it and it just made sense with my situation, too – I had a small bedroom with a lot of American Girl dolls! 😀
So, that’s the meaning behind my blog name! Here’s a few pictures since this post was so short and most all of you probably knew all that already LOL!
Oh. My. Gosh. This is my first photoshoot of Marie-Grace!!!
And let me just say that….
….she is SO PHOTOGENIC!!!!
I think this is my favorite picture! 😀
Aaaaaahhh….. She’s so pretty! I think I just found a new love in Marie-Grace! Not that I’ve never stopped loving her, but just that I’m realizing how pretty she is again – if you know what I mean ;D
I hope you enjoyed the photoshoot! I really just wanna take more pics, but it’s really hot outside (102!!) and when I was gonna go to another area in our yard I saw huge webs, so I decided to come in 😛
Oh! And I just wanted to give a little reminder that I posted the next part of Sadie’s Hope a couple days ago, so be sure to check that out!
Talk to you tomorrow!
Hey everyone! Yesterday I cleaned out under my bed (my doll’s bedroom) because I’ve been having a ton of baby spiders in my room lately (*shudders*) and the other day I noticed a few under there, so I freaked out… Anyways! Back to the subject of this post – I set up my dolls to where they’re all doing something and I thought it’d be fun to show you what they’re up to
So here’s the overview! Some of them are hiding behind the curtains, though LOL!
Over here, Dallas is getting Pepper out of his bed so he, Eli, and Jeremy can play with him. Rapunzel is asking if she can play with him, too and Lissie is trying to get a book, but Dallas is in the way. You can kinda see Clara back there just hanging out
Bella, Ellie, and Snow are being as sweet as can be playing with Licorice
Belinda is helping Cecile with some school.
And Merida wants Belinda for something…. Probably to help her climb something 😛
And of course Caleb and Kendra are fighting and screaming at the top of their lungs. Kristoff is trying to pull Caleb off of Kendra and Annika starts to intervene. Mickey and Minnie are sad and scared by their fighting as usual, too 😉
Kanani, Riven-Delle, and Annika had all been talking, but then stopped instantly when they noticed Caleb and Kendra fighting. Anna was gonna talk to Riven-Delle, but also stopped when she noticed the fight.
Janie looking over at Caleb and Kendra. They attract a lot of attention to themselves whenever they fight 😛
Julie, Kaya, and Samantha are talking
And oh, dear! Marie-Grace was talking to Saige (who is painting) when she was supposed to be practicing her singing, so Lana told her to stop talking to Saige, Marie-Grace got mad, and now Jess came over and is trying to tell Lana that it’s okay for Marie-Grace to talk to Saige. My goodness!
Josefina and Kirsten were about to bake and are now trying to persuade Rebecca into helping them, too. Addy was talking to Kirsten
Jenna doing some things at the vanity
And Kiara and Caroline are chatting
Do your dolls have a usual thing that happens every day? Like how Caleb and Kendra always fight? What do your dolls like to do?
Katrina instantly walked over to the princesses and introduced herself.
“We were about to come outside and suddenly he darted out the back door. I chased after him, but he was too quick. I’m sorry.” Corinne lied, but that isn’t what troubled me. I still had an unanswered question. “Monica!” I shouted and she turned quickly towards me. “You knew that he was my dad?” I asked again.
“Yes. I found out what he was looking for. I knew about the lost princess. And when you came into our hideout on that first day, I noticed your birthmark, and I knew that it was you. That’s why I was so adamant about you coming with us. I wanted to reunite father and daughter.” Monica explained.
I stood completely still with a serious look on my face. “Well, you did.” It was all I could say. I was angry that she hadn’t told me, and I lost him anyways, so her plan didn’t even work out well. I wondered if I would ever see him again…
The next part is coming in one hour so stay tuned!
“Well, I’m not exactly coming…” I began then continued, “I want you to come with us. Monica is just in a bad mood and I have a pretty strong feeling that she was gonna come your way once you were well out of sight.”
“Well, couldn’t you at least try to work it out? We’re all going the same way anyways, so we might as well go together.” I said hopefully. Corinne smiled. “Very well, I’ll come along.”
Even though Corinne had agreed to come with us, we still lost a lot of time. It took quite a while to convince Monica to allow Corinne to come along – and lead the way. I can’t tell you how relieved Katrina and I were when they shook hands and said, “Let’s get going.”
Katrina turned her head towards Corinne. “No, no, no.” She whimpered. Monica was silent for a bit and then said, “Alright, Allie. You go with Corinne and Katrina and I will wait here for the both of you.”
That ends part 6! Part 7 coming soon! 😀
After walking for several miles, we finally made it to the train station. Unfortunately, the train we needed had already begun moving, so we had to chase after it and jump on. Not fun at all. We were on the train for six days and hardly any of us spoke a word. “So, where did you come from, Allie?” Corinne asked, breaking the uncomfortable silence.
“Well, I found a package on my porch and it led me to Monica and Katrina. I never really felt like anything special, and when Monica told me I had to come, I agreed. I thought it might be a good opportunity for me to possibly find a job…” I said, looking at Monica. But she didn’t move. I didn’t even think she heard me.
Corinne scooted over to the window and peered out. “Hmmm…. Yeah, we could jump off now.” Corinne said thoughtfully. I noticed Monica roll her eyes. Corinne and Monica didn’t get along so good. They disagreed about almost everything and I believe that’s why things felt so awkward.
We finally managed to get Katrina off of the train, but we really just got into more trouble.
“We should head back this way.”
“We need to go this way.” Monica and Corinne said in unison.
“That makes no sense. If we had gotten off back there we would’ve been heading this way, not going back. If we were going back, that would take us back to the train station! We need to go forward!” Corinne yelled.
That concludes part 5! I was gonna do more, but that would’ve been REALLY long! I hope you enjoyed this part! 😀
Yes, I’ve finally made some posters for The Disappearing Heirs series! 😀
I f you’d like to print some of these out, here’s how to do it:
1. Click on the picture you’d like to print.
2. Right click on the picture
3. Click “print” and you’re done!
I hope you like the posters! I had a lot of fun making them!
P.S. I also added Riven-Delle to the Meet My Dolls page and added “Favorite Movie” and “Favorite Song” to each of the girls, so be sure to check that out!
We ran all through the night, and by morning we had reached an old beach. Katrina plopped herself on the sand, I almost thought she had fainted, but I realized she was just faking. I understood her being exhausted from running all that time, though. We only took a few breaks. We didn’t have any water, food, or sleep. Boy, I sure could use some sleep.
“We’ll have to take a long way back so we can get to the airport. We don’t want to go back the same way we came. I don’t want to risk running into that person.” Monica spoke quietly. I knew she was worried and probably just as tired as all of us.
“I wonder who that person was.” I wondered as we both stared at the ocean. Then from behind us, we heard a voice say, “Are you lost?”
“Oh, well, it just didn’t seem like you all meant to be here. You aren’t exactly dressed for the beach.” The woman pointed out. She was right. I was wearing cowboy boots and Katrina was wearing a dress. That’s not exactly how you dress at a beach.
“No, you’re right. I don’t look dressed for this weather, to you, but for me, I’m dressed perfectly. It’s very cold where I come from, so this weather feels great to me.” The woman explained.
“What is your name?” Monica asked the lady. “Corinne.” She replied. “Well, Corinne, we’d better be going. Thank you for checking in on us.” Monica said, and began to walk away.
We hesitantly followed Monica. Something didn’t feel right about Corinne and I wanted to find out more about her!
“Halt!” Corinne shouted. We all quickly spun around to see her pointing a gun. Katrina immediately whimpered and put her hands in the air. “What do you think you’re doing?” Monica asked and began walking slowly up to her.
“Don’t worry. I just need to ask you a few questions.” Corinne explained.
“I’m the one who was following you, Detective. I heard something about a case. What case is it?” Corinne asked forcefully.
“A top secret case. People are disappearing.” Monica said while looking all around her to be sure nobody else could hear. Corinne lowered her gun. “The disappearing heirs?” She asked, but I knew she already knew the answer.
“Yes. How do you know about this? Are you a detective as well?” Monica asked through whispers. “No, I’m not a detective. I know because, I used to help with capturing the heirs.” Corinne explained hesitantly.
“This is all part of his plan then, isn’t it? You’re trying to stall us so he can get a head start on making his next move!” Monica said that last sentence a little too loudly and quickly looked around to see if anyone heard. She was really lucky.
“No, not at all. I’m done helping him. I want to help you now. Will you trust me?” Corinne asked hopefully. I trusted her, but would Monica?
“That newborn princess was made up by me to throw you guys off. If you really want to get him, then we need to go to Manhattan.” Corinne stated. Monica sighed and said, “Very well. I said I would trust you, so it looks like I’m going to have to keep my word.”
That ends part 4! The next part will be coming soon! 😀
We left almost immediately after I had decided to go with Princess Katrina and Detective Monica to London. We traveled for hours without stopping. My feet and back ached, and my stomach was growling. Why didn’t we at least bring food??
“Everyone, HALT!!!” Katrina yelled with frustration. Her yell startled me so much, that it made me jump! I think Monica must’ve been used to it since she just seemed to sigh and turn around to see what was wrong.
“What on earth is the matter with you?” Monica asked.
Monica slowly turned her head and rolled her eyes. “Is Katrina always like this?” I wondered.
I walked over to Monica and said, “We have been walking for hours without stopping. My back and my feet hurt and I am starving. Where on earth are we walking to anyways?” I asked. I could tell that Monica was trying not to be annoyed by my complaining. “We have to get to the airport. We are walking because we don’t have a car and it is too dangerous to sit in a taxi with Katrina. She couldn’t not say that she’s a princess or mention this case if her life depended on it.” Monica explained. I could definitely believe that.
“Hey! Are you two done whispering? Did you forget about ME? And another thing, I am FREEZING!” Katrina stated while raising her voice. I was so cold that I had forgotten I was cold. I forgot how cold it had been getting at nighttime, and it was almost night now.
Monica walked over to Katrina and started to take off her jacket.
“Here, where this.” Monica told Katrina, and they each switched jackets.
“Hm, I suppose. Thank you, detective.” Katrina said, although she didn’t sound very satisfied.
“Alright. We need to keep moving, I’m hoping to reach the airport before dark.” Monica ordered.
She walked away and Katrina just watched her. “Well, are you coming?” I asked. Katrina flashed me a look that said “Don’t speak to me.” But surprisingly she followed after Monica. She probably realized that she really needed Monica to protect her.
We walked on a while longer, and then Monica said, “We’ll rest here tonight.” I guess she changed her mind about reaching the airport before dark. I sat down next to Monica and we both stared at Katrina who was currently battling….
Grass. “Ouch, stop poking me!” She yelled at the grass as she tried pushing it away.
“Get some rest, Allie. I’ll keep watch tonight.” Monica said and walked away.
Monica seemed very troubled, so I decided to talk to her and see what was wrong.
“Monica, are you okay?” I asked. “Yes, I’m fine.” She said with a sigh, then turned to face me.
“You’re going to need to be brave, Allie. I don’t think you fully understand how dangerous and risky it can be to work on a case such as this.” She said and placed her hand on my shoulder.
“We need to stick together. No matter what.” She said, and as I gazed into her eyes, all I could see was worry. I nodded and said, “I will do anything you tell me to.” And for the first time, I actually saw her smile.
I watched her as she looked all around. Then I noticed her squint her eyes and widen them again. She had seen something.
She ran back towards Katrina and said, “We need to get out of here! Now!”
“What is it? What happened?” I asked, quite panicky.
“Someone’s on to us. Now run. Run!” She yelled and dashed off with Katrina right behind her.
And that concludes part 3!! I love cliffhangers, they’re so suspenseful! 😀 Part 4 will be coming soon!
