It was a perfect May afternoon. Felicity was picking flowers, whistling softly. It was her favorite time of day, though flower picking was a bit too girly for her.
Felicity whirled around.
She saw a girl about her age, with dark hair, eyes and skin. The girl’s outfit was really outdated, like something someone in the Gettysburg movie would’ve worn. She had a bonnet, which was tied under her chin with a ribbon. She wore a shell necklace, and carried a patchwork bag. Her gold hoop earrings glinted in the sunlight.
“Hello?” the girl said again, louder this time.
Felicity realized that she’d been staring all this time, with her mouth wide open. “Um, hi.” Lame, she thought, Seriously, Felicity?
The girl smiled shyly. “My name’s Addy.”
We stared at each other. Addy cleared her throat. “I’m here to find my new home. Would you happen to know…” Another sister? Felicity thought hopefully.
“…where 527 Pumpernickel Lane is?”
“I knew it!” Felicity cheered. Addy looked at her quizzically, but Felicity just grabbed her hand and dragged her to the house.
* 10 minutes later *
“All right everyone, we’ve got a new sister!” Felicity exclaimed.
“Yay!” “Really?” “We just got Grace!” “What’s her name?” “Cool!” the sisters exclaimed.
“Addy?” Felicity prompted.
Addy made her way to the front of the room, smiling less shyly now.
“Hello everyone. My name is Addy Walker. I’m a historical reenactress, hence the outfit. I was adopted in Chicago. I love baking, and ice cream is my favorite food. My birthday is May 10th.”
“Who adopted you?” Julia asked.
“IrishAG?” Addy said it like a question.
“All right!” Julia clapped her hands and ran to give Addy a hug. Nellie went up cautiously after her.
Coconut bounded up with Julia, and Addy gasped.
“I’m really afraid of dogs!” she whispered to Felicity.
“Don’t worry, Coco won’t hurt you. You can pet her, if you want.” Felicity encouraged.
Addy slowly sat down and touched Coconut’s fur. A big smile dawned on her face.
Surprise! Yes, I bought Addy when we went to AG Place Chicago on May 10th! I was really debating if I should get Maryellen or Addy. Eventually, I chose Addy because she is very different from the rest of our dolls. Plus, I love her time period and story. I hadn’t gotten a doll since Julia in 2011, so this was really exciting. 😀 I’ll do a review of Addy soon!
And… this photostory was supposed to feature Felicity, as you voted, so sorry if she got a bit overshadowed by Addy.
One last thing! I finally figured out how to do waterfall braids! (That’s what Felicity’s hairstyle is called.)
Do your dolls have middle names?
