Hey, y'all! Today I seized the opportunity to take some pictures for a photo story! It will be split into at least two parts, since there were quite a few photos. The next part should be up next weekend.
Ivy bounced up and down in excitement. "Ooh! I can't wait to get going!"
"Me too!" Emily smiled. "I've been looking forward to the American History Convention for months!"
Samantha smoothed the bodice of her dress as she replied, "I love getting the chance to dress up in any time period of clothing, and it isn't weird!"
"I enjoy that part too, but I also have a lot of fun learning about the history of America," Emily explained. "I particularly love learning new bits of trivia!"
Jess glided into the room and said, "Samantha, thank you for letting me borrow one of your dresses for the convention! It's absolutely lovely."
Samantha's head bobbed in a nod as she replied, "It's my pleasure! I couldn't wear all of my dresses at once, so it only seemed right to share them with you all."
"Oh, yes! Thank you, Samantha!" Ivy chirped. "I love this outfit! I just might wear it everyday!"
Emily giggled then turned to face Samantha."I want to thank you as well, Samantha. It was very generous of you to allow us to wear your beautiful clothes."
"No problem!" Samantha responded. Then her forehead crinkled as she said, "I offered Jessica one of my outfits, but she said she already had something planned. I wonder what on earth she has up her sleeve this time?"
"Yeah, where is she?" Ivy asked. "We need to leave soon!"
Suddenly, a screaming, black enrobed figure flew down from the ceiling and landed in the midst of the girls, who shrieked in panic.
"JESSICA!!!" The girls all yelled, realizing who it was.
"Yup!" Jessica grinned mischievously. "Surprised you guys, didn't I?"
"You nearly gave me a heart attack!" Jess declared.
"Why did you do that?" Ivy asked, her heart pounding loudly.
"Because I'm a ninja!" Jessica announced. "That's my costume for the historical thingy majig!"
Emily peered at Jessica through slitted eyes, miffed that her friend had startled her so much.
"Jessica," Samantha began. "You are supposed to dress for a time period in history, not as whatever you want!"
"Yeah!" Jess agreed. "I don't remember there being any ninjas in American history."
Ivy stepped in. "Actually, if there were ninjas in American history, you wouldn't know about it, since ninjas are trained in the art of stealth." She explained, "Ninjas would never let anyone know where they are-- or were. So who knows? Maybe there really were ninjas in American history!"
Jessica victoriously raised her hands in the air, giving Samantha and Jess a "in-your-face" look.
Samantha cleared her throat. "Be that as it may, we should get going. We don't want to be late!"
"Yes! Let's go!" Emily agreed.
"Woohoo!!" Jessica squealed in glee, settling into the splits. "Let's hit the place like a hurricane and leave them all wondering what happened!!!"
All of the girls excitedly left the house, sing-songing their anticipation for the event. Or rather, almost all of the girls left the house.
Jessica quietly watched her friends leave out of the front door. Then she yelled, "GUYS!?! Can you help me get out of the splits?!?"
"GUYS!!!!!!! I CAN'T GET UP!!!!!!!!!"
Stay tuned for the next part. I have something really cool to show you in the next installment!
