Autumn Walk

Emily saw her sister and friend, Molly, gazing out the window. She had been really quiet since school, and Emily knew something was wrong.

She walked over and joined her. “What are you doing, Molly?” she asked.

“Missing summer vacation,” Molly answered grumpily without looking up from the window.

Emily wasn’t satisfied. “Why don’t we take the dogs for a walk?” she suggested. She’d get the truth out of Molly sooner or later.

“OK.”

They rounded up the dogs and went outside.

Molly took a deep breath of the cool October air. “I love autumn,” she said.

Emily nodded in agreement. “The leaves are changing colors, it’s getting cooler . . . oh, and Thanksgiving! I especially like Thanksgiving.”

Molly laughed at her friend’s excitement in a holiday that she herself didn’t really care for.

They had just stepped out onto a path when Emily decided to give Molly’s problem another shot.

“Molly, why were you so glum earlier? I know it’s not that school has started again — you love school — but maybe something during school upset you?”

Molly sighed before replying. “It just . . . well, I didn’t do very well on a science test we had today.”

“I’m very sorry!” Emily exclaimed. “I’m sure you studied quite hard.” Molly was an all A’s student, so she was usually depressed when she got a bad grade — and that didn’t happen often. Emily picked a light pink flower from a bush they passed by.

She tucked the flower in Molly’s hair. Molly likes the outdoors, she thought. Maybe this will help cheer her up.

They continued on their walk, and Emily suggested asking Tracy or Caroline for help in Science class. Then Emily confessed that she hadn’t done very well in Math that day, and Molly happily agreed to help her.

    • In those pictures I just closed the doll’s eyes. So I just tucked part of the eyelash into the bottom of the eyes so her eyes were closed while she was standing up. None of my dolls are actually missing any eyelashes 😉
