My journey begins ~ A photo story

Hey everyone! Yes! I am finally doing a photo story! This one is sort of different.
 It's from the perspective of Amelia the new doll in the family! 
 I had so much fun doing this! I totally forgot how fun it was. :) I hope you enjoy!


I stood in front of my new family's house. A humongous door stood in front of me."I guess this is it." I said to myself "Well, here goes nothing."

With my backpack slung around my shoulder with my few belongings,
I knocked on the door, while thinking back on the long trip from Wisconsin. It had taken two days to get here, and I was hoping it was worth it. "I wonder what they're going to be like." I thought.

A girl then answered the door. She had long wavy auburn hair, dark blue eyes, and freckles speckled across her cheeks. Trying not to stutter I spoke. "Hi, I'm Amelia, and is this where my new home is?"
The girl excitingly spoke and told me her name. "Hi! We weren't expecting you till tomorrow! But it's great that your here. Oh, and I'm Saige! Would you like to come in?" I wasn't quiet sure what to say, but I decided to except the invitation.

I walked in from they're gigantic door into their house. After a second of silence, she spoke. "How was your trip from Wisconsin?" I then told her about my trip and all of the things that I experienced. "It was really great!" I finally said. "Well that's good." She exclaimed, she then smiled back at me.
Then I heard a few faint voices yelling. "I told you I didn't want my bed made that way!" Said the first voice I heard. "You had the simplest job!" Then the other voice yelled back. "Well SORRY. How am I supposed to know what you want?"

Saige then rolled her eyes and sighed. She then explained to me who those girls were. "That's Claire and Mae. Your new um... sisters." She said hesitantly. "Oh great. What have I gotten myself into?" I thought to myself.

We then made our way up the stairs and into the room where the voices were.
"Girls! You all need to settle down! Amelia is here." Saige stated.

The two girls stopped what they were doing and started staring at me like I was some sort of alien from space. Embarrassed they then dropped the pillows that they were holding and one girl straightened out her hair.

A girl with brown hair, freckles, and blue eyes came up to me. "Hi! I'm Claire. And that is Mae." Mae then chimed in: "Hi there!" I said Hi back. I mean, what else would I say? "Hi." There was an awkward silence. I felt like crawling into a hole.
 Saige then broke the awkward silence. "So this is where you will live, and that will be your bed!"

She then pointed to a corner of the room where there was a twin sized bed with clean sheets, and a couple of pillows.

 I said "Thank you." as I was making my way towards my new bed. "Claire can help you unpack if you'd like." Saige exclaimed. "OK." I then said.
 Claire then followed me to my bed, and helped me unpack.

 I kept thinking of what was yet to come in my new life. I decided to ask Claire how she felt on her first day here. "Random question, so how was it when you first came here?" I asked Claire. She paused for a moment, then replied:
"It was only Saige when I came here, and then Mae came along soon after. I was nervous at first but I got more comfortable as the days passed on. You'll feel better once you get to know everyone here a little better. Trust me." She then smiled at me, and once again reached into my backpack to get my few belongings out.
"I think she's right, this place is going to turn out great." I thought to myself.

And I was right.


Thanks for reading everyone! I know it was kind of short, but don't worry! I have a series planned out. It's called "Dear Diary". It's where Amelia will be "writing" in her diary on what has been going on so far in her new home! So stay tuned for that! I can't wait to show you all what I have planned. ^_^ Have a great day!
