Masquerade~ Part 6


I returned home from prison the day Frederic told me I was free to go. Although I was glad to be free, as I walked home I still felt like I was in a prison. All of my usual friends who would stop to at least say “Hello”, didn’t even give me a second glance. They walked right past me. They were shutting me out because they finally knew who I really was.
As I walked into my home, I saw a strange sight.

My mother wearing some old clothes, her hair up, and an apron around her waist. What was really strange though, was that she was looking sadly at a pile of her best dresses. “Mother?” I said to get her attention.

“Oh, Liesel! I’m so glad to see you. Are you alright?” Mother inquired, quickly looking over me, probably checking for any scratches or bruises.

“Yes, I’m fine. How and what are you doing?” I asked, glancing over her shoulder at the table.


“I’m as well as can be expected, considering that everyone in the kingdom knows about your father now. I have been going through our things and selling as much as I possibly can.” Mother explained.

“What if we can’t sell enough to pay everyone back?” I wondered.

Mother hesitated before responding and pursed her lips together. With a sigh she said, “Then we will have no choice but to sell the house.”

Mother went back to her work and looked at me with sad eyes. “I’m sorry, Liesel, but I had to sell all your clothes and other belongings.” She apologized.

“You have no reason to be sorry. I’m the one who should be apologizing. It’s all my fault that everyone knows about Father.” I said full of guilt. “Oh, Liesel, don’t blame yourself. Your-” Mother was interrupted by the sound of knocking on the door.


Mother went to answer the door and I looked down at her pretty dresses.


I stroked her purple striped dress and admired the embroidery done on it. I felt so awful that my mother had to give her lovely clothes away and I wondered if we would ever be fortunate enough to have such luxurious gowns again.

“Oh, my. I – I – forgive me, but I am afraid I couldn’t possibly allow my daughter to do that.” I heard my mother saying to whoever was at the door.

“Mother, what is it?” I inquired.

Mother politely excused herself and said in a whisper, “The prince is here. He heard about the debt we are in and said he has been in search of a wife, but can’t find the right one. He says his father has been pressing him about the matter and now the prince says he would marry you in order to please his father and save us from going into poverty.”

That concludes part 6!! Look for part 7 coming soon! πŸ˜€

Is It Fall Yet?~ A Photoshoot

No, it’s not. But it did rain the other day (OH MY GOSH IT WAS AMAZING!!!) and so it looked cold and awesome outside, so I took a photoshoot of Jocelyn dressed for Fall weather…. Even though it was like 88 outside… πŸ˜›

I really like this one for some reason! πŸ˜€

image

image

image

YAAAY!!! I DID IT!!! LOL! Sorry! It’s just that, in this photoshoot I did, a picture (like the one above) didn’t get uploaded and was deleted (because I thought it got uploaded). I was so upset because it was like one of my most favorite pictures ever, so I was really happy to be able to get this picture! :)

image

image

image

image

The lighting was really weird over here….

image

image

Well, that’s all, folks! I was really happy with these pictures and literally went back inside with a big smile on my face! It was nice to get someΒ good pictures after feeling uninspired after my last photoshoot :)

Masquerade~ Part 5

The palace guards had caught me red-handed with the Rainbow Stone and dragged me down to their deepest dungeon. I was to stay there until further notice. I worried terribly about my mother who would wake up the next morning to find me missing and discovering that I had been sent to the dungeon in Ethenia.

image

I felt like I was awake all night, but knew it wasn’t so when I woke up to a gentle voice saying, “Liesel. Liesel!”

image

I opened my eyes and saw my mother standing on the other side of my cell wrapped in her golden shawl and carrying an old folded up blanket. “Are you alright, darling?” My mother inquired, her voice quavery.

image

“No, I’m not, but I am better now that you’re here. Mother, I’m so sorry about all – ” I began, but Mother interrupted me,

image

“It’s alright. Here, I brought you a blanket to keep yourself warm.” She said as she handed me the blanket through the cell bars.

image

“Thank you.” I said gratefully and wrapped it around my shoulders. “Mother, truly, I am so sorry. I should have told you about my meeting with Frederic, but I was scared. I thought I was doing the right thing by keeping our secret, but I ended up getting put in jail. I’m so sorry.” I apologized as a few tears entered my eyes.

image

Mother wrapped her hand around mine and said, “I know, dear. And it’s okay. We’re going to work this out.”

image

“Times up.” The jail guard said and mother looked back at him sadly.

image

“I have to go now, but don’t worry. I’ll be back soon. I promise.” Mother said sincerely. “Goodbye, Mother. And thank you.” I said and watched her go with an aching heart.

image

The next morning, I lay on the floor of my cell sobbing. I missed my mother, my home, and I absolutely hated being locked in the dungeon. I was beyond miserable and completely depressed.

image

I heard footsteps stop at my cell and looked up, expecting to see my mother, but instead was disgusted at the sight of my visitor. “What are you doing here?” I inquired angrily.

image

“I’m here to give you the good news. I’ve spoken with the king and he has agreed to let you go.” Frederic said with a broad smile that made me suspicious.

image

“Why are you smiling?” I asked suspiciously.

image

“Oh, maybe just because I know that you’ll end up poorer than a lowly servant before long.” He replied with a grin.

image

“What? What did you do?” I demanded of him.

image

His face grew serious. “You didn’t get me the Rainbow Stone and now you never will. Therefore, our deal has fallen through. I told several people back at your home kingdom the truth about your father and by now the word is spreading like wild fire. Before long, you and your mother will be in so much debt that you’ll be forced to sell your home and all your belongings. You’ll be living on the streets!” Frederic finished with a merry laugh.

image

I turned away and said, “No…”

image

Frederic began walking away, but he said over his shoulder, “You really should thank me. After all, I just gave you back your freedom!” He may have given me back my freedom, but now my life and reputation was destroyed.

To be continued in Part 6!! πŸ˜€

Masquerade~ Part 4

image
As I was walking up to my home I saw my mother standing straight and tall waiting for me. “Liesel, where were you?” She inquired with a sound of worry.

image

“I got a little distracted on the way home.” I explained. There was a bit of truth to that. I got distracted when I saw Frederic on my way home and went to speak with him. So at least I wasn’t lying completely…. Well, okay, maybe I was….

image

“You said you’d be back by teatime. I had to entertain our guest on my own because you weren’t here.” Mother stated with annoyance. I knew by the look in her eyes that the guest was Mrs. Oppenheimer – someone my mother and just about everyone in town found it hard to get along with.

image

“I’m sorry, Mother. I didn’t realize I was gone so long.” I apologized.

image

“Well next time try to remember to keep your promises. I was about to send for the carriage and go in search of you.” Mother said in distress.

image

“I will, Mother.” I promised.

image

“Good. Now let’s go inside out of the sun before we freckle.” Mother suggested and we headed into the house.

image

That night, I met Frederic in front of Wilcott Palace in Ethenia. “Well, I’m here. What do you need me to do?” I inquired impatiently. I just wanted to get this over with as quickly as possible.

image

“There’s a stone inside the palace known as The Rainbow Stone. I need you to steal it.” Frederic explained.

image

“Here, you’ll need this.” He said as he handed me a small black pouch.

image

“Why won’t you do it yourself? Is it dangerous?” I questioned.

image

“Why would I risk my life like that?” He answered my question with a question.

image

My eyes widened in fear when he said that. I sighed and said, “Well, looks like I have a stone to steal.”

image

I sneaked into the palace through an open window and looked around the dark room. Then I spotted a pedestal with a small stone placed atop a pillow. “That must be The Rainbow Stone.” I thought.

image

I opened the drawstring pouch and placed the stone inside.

image

As I pulled the strings tight, I gasped as I heard a man’s voice shout, “Hold it right there!”

image

I quickly spun around with my hands in the air and saw a palace guard facing me with a gun in hand.

DUN DUN DUN DUUUNN!

That ends part 4! The next part will be coming soon! πŸ˜€

Oh, and here’s a bonus pic I took of Jenna for you –

Have a great rest of your day! :)

Masquerade~ Part 2

image
I walked into the parlor at our house and noticed my mother sitting at the desk. “Oh! Mother, I didn’t think you would still be awake.” I said with surprise. “What are you doing home so early?” She inquired, ignoring what I had just said.

image

“I was just feeling a little tired.” I fibbed and took a seat.

image

“Liesel, what is it? What’s troubling you?” My mother questioned as she studied me. Somehow mothers always know when something is bothering their children.

image

“Nothing.” I replied quite simply, then went on to say, “How are you feeling, Mother? Is your headache gone?” I inquired, trying to change the subject.

image

“Yes, I am feeling much better. Now, would you please tell me what’s wrong?” She asked in her gentle motherly tone.

image

“Nothing – it’s just – nothing, I’m fine.” I quickly assured her as I reached for the teapot.

image

“I know you don’t do well in large crowds. Were you feeling uncomfortable?” Mother tried again, but I just couldn’t tell her.

image

“Would you like a cup of tea?” I offered, ignoring her question. Mother sighed and said, “Yes, thank you.”

image

As I was carrying the cup and saucer, I felt so nervous that I was trembling and dropped them on the floor.

image

“I’m so sorry! I’ll clean it up.” I apologized and reached down to pick up the cup and saucer.

image
As I set a new cup and saucer on her desk, Mother said, “Liesel, I know for a fact now that something is wrong. You never just drop things and I saw how you were trembling. What is it?”

image

I closed my eyes and looked away with a sigh. “You’re right, Mother. Something is on my mind.” I confessed.

image

“It’s Father. Some of the other women were talking about the great things their fathers are doing and what a success they are, that it got me to thinking about him.” I lied again. Mother couldn’t know about my meeting with Frederic.

image

“You didn’t say anything, did you?” Mother asked in a panic.

image

“No, no, of course not!” I assured her and continued, “But I was wondering… What would happen if someone did find out?” I inquired with caution, not wanting to alarm my mother more than I already had.

image

“That’s not something to wonder, Liesel, because no one will find out.” Mother answered.

image

“I know, it’s just that I’m curious. What would happen if others knew?” I asked again.

image

Mother stood and headed for the door. “If others knew, we would be shamed and we would become the laughingstock of the kingdom. We could lose our house, our riches, and all that we had. We’d go back to poverty.” She finally explained with a trembling voice.

image

“No one must find out what your father really was and we must do anything to keep others from knowing the truth.” She said sternly.

image

“Anything?” I repeated.

image

Anything.” She said and went upstairs. I knew I had upset her and that I had brought up a painful topic, but I just had to know for sure.

image

“Well, I have my answer then. She said we have to do anything, so that’s exactly what I’ll do. Even if it means doing something for Frederic.”

That concludes part 2! Look for part 3 coming soon! πŸ˜€

Freckles~ A Photoshoot

So, I decided to add freckles to Jocelyn!! I was going through all our markers trying to find a brown washable one, but I couldn’t find one that was labeled washable, so I tested one on Jocelyn’s leg (up near the top where it doesn’t show) and then washed it off. It came out instantly, so I got to work on putting a bunch of cute freckles on Jocelyn’s face! I’m gonna be honest with you, I was really scared and I had to redo her freckles several times before I finally got it right! It was seriously SO much fun, though and it makes me wanna add freckles to some of my other dolls! LOL! So, let’s get on with the photoshoot so you can see the new Jocelyn! πŸ˜€

image

image

EEE!! I’m seriously so happy!!! I think Jocelyn looks way cuter with freckles!! πŸ˜€

image

image

image

image

You can see better in this picture that I added a single darker freckle by the top right corner of her mouth, and down by her chin on the left. I added thoseΒ because I have freckles like that on my face :)

image

She really looks so much like me now! Just change the hairstyle to curly, fluffy hair and you’ve got it! LOL!

image

image

Well, that’s all the pics! What do you think of Jocelyn with freckles? :)

Have you ever added freckles to your doll?

Oh! And I added Jocelyn to the Meet My Dolls page, so be sure to check that out! Thank you all so much for your personality suggestions! They were all so great πŸ˜€
