Hi, everyone! Today I will be showing y’all the story I wrote for this weeks’ challenge! Without further ado, I present…
The Girl In The Snow
Hello there! My name is Anastasia Rose Copeland. (haha no she is not related to Saige XD) I live in the city. It’s lovely this time of year. My mother got me this beautiful warm new sweater for the season, along with this fashionable winter dress and warm undergarments. That way I can explore outside without getting cold. Well, anyway, I’m 12 years old, but I can’t wait until next year, 1909, when I’ll be 13! Then maybe my parents will stop treating me like a child. Well, look over there! It’s my friends Grace and Hazel! “Hi, Grace! Hi, Hazel!” I shouted. “Hello, Ana!” They smiled. “Brrr, it’s cold out here, Ana! Your sweater looks awfully warm!” Grace shivered. “Yes,” said Hazel. “You’re fortunate to have that warm sweater!” “Oh, it’s not that much warmer than yours and you know it!” I grinned at the two. “So where are you girls headed?” I asked. “Well, we were just going over to Mercy Baker’s place for the party she’s having!” Hazel blurted. “Hazel!” Grace glared at her angrily. “Mercy said we weren’t supposed to tell her!” Hazel looked down at her toes. Grace glanced at me, then turned to Hazel and said, “C’mon, Hazel, we have to get to the party.” I stared after them as they hurried down the snow covered street. Why hadn’t Mercy invited me? I thought. I always invite her and all the other girls to my parties! I sighed heavily. “Well, I suppose I should just go home now.” I mused aloud. “No point in wandering around town sulking.” Suddenly, I heard a small voice behind me.
sorry that this picture wasn’t in the snow I couldn’t find one that was in the snow so just use your imagination XD
“Did you say something, miss?” I whirled around to see a small girl who was maybe 9 years old standing there. Behind her were two small children. “Uh, well, no, I uh, was just talking to myself…” I stammered. “Oh, that’s quite all right. I do that to, sometimes.” The girl smiled, and her smile pierced my heart as I realized that she was wearing a very thin dress, and that she was shivering visibly. I saw her glance at me awkwardly, and I realized that she was looking at my warm clothes. I thought about my old sweater, which was perfectly fine, other than the fact that it wasn’t quite as warm as my new one. I looked at the girl again and I knew exactly what I had to do. I stepped closer to her and unbuttoned my sweater. She looked at me curiously. “What are you doing, miss?” She asked, a puzzled look in her eye. “Here. This is for you.” I said, placing my new wool sweater in her hands. “For me?” She asked, her eyes wide. “Yes, it’s for you.” I smiled even wider, my eyes filling with tears at the sight of her happy face. “Thank you, oh, thank you!” She slid the sweater on and beamed from ear to ear as she buttoned it up. “Ohhh, it’s so warm!” She looked up at me and said, “Thank you, oh thank you so much, miss!” I grinned from ear to ear and said, “Just call me Ana. All my friends do.” And I gave her a hug. “I must be getting home now. One more thing, though. What’s your name?” I asked. “Faith.” She said, still smiling widely. “Goodbye, Faith!” I waved as I walked down the street. “Goodbye, mi- Ana!” Faith shouted after me. I wondered what Mother would say when I told her that I gave away my new sweater, but I didn’t really care. I know it’s what Jesus would have done. And I didn’t care about the party at Mercy’s house, either. I had made a new friend, and now I felt like floating.
So that’s it, guys!!! I hope you liked it! I’m sorry it’s so long. If you would like, I could continue it, but that’s up to y’all. I hope everything I said was historically accurate, I based some of it off the Samantha books sooo…. XD
Well, that’s all for now!
