Nellie as Lady Fleurette
Saige as Lady Autumn
Addy as Lady Sommar
Lady Fleurette was excited. Today she’d be coronated! She would start her job as the Spring Princess. Her mother had been very nervous about letting her go by herself to the Fall kingdom, which made Fleurette a little miffed. But then, I did get my long locks accidentally burned off… and didn’t wear my hat, and freckled… she thought, fingering her now above shoulder length hair and fidgeting. Her mother’s words from a few days ago came back to her:
“Sit still, Fleurette!”
“But I’m so antsy! I’ve never seen the whole council, and Spring is only two seasons away!”
Her mother had smiled in spite of herself. “You’ll need to be calm for the council, though.”
Fleurette gazed at the moving scenery, letting her mother’s words fade back into her memory.
Lady Autumn breathed in the leafy air. Fall, the season I’ll be in charge of. Soon. She loved everything about Fall: pumpkins, leaves, apple everything, and something Humans called Halloween, where children dressed up and ate too much candy. And the fashionable clothes humans wore! She’d tried to replicate one, with orange skinny pants and a billowy top. Even her curly red hair screamed Fall.
She blissfully turned her freckled face to the sun. Since it was “her” season, the council would be held at her palace.
“I’ve gotta get back!” she yelped, running home as fast as her boots could carry her.
Lady Sommar was busy reading in her carriage. Or, that’s what she was supposed to be doing. She was actually staring out at the leafy trees, mourning that her season wouldn’t come for many months now. Maybe the Queen will want a shorter Spring, her optimistic side hoped. But that’s still forever away! Her dramatic side groaned. She just couldn’t focus on her book, although she loved reading. She daydreamed stories while sunshine streamed through the leaves and kissed her dark face.
Hey guys! Can you believe November’s almost over?
So yay, new characters! Their costumes were super fun to create. Gymnast03 helped a lot, especially with Autumn’s outfit. Feedback would be awesome!
