I went with Wendy to DDE today to keep her from being followed home by a doll.
Allow me to explain.
I came to talk to HER. She's some kind of Volks doll, which makes her important or something. Wendy got all enchanted with her, and was talking about maybe bringing her home.
No. Just no. I had stated "no more dolls" and I meant it.
my awesome, green haired sister, who had been missing (with all the rest of the pixies in the Wylde Kingdom) for months!
And then, a doll from up on the shelf "shush"-ed me. Seriously! She said in a harsh whisper "Shhh. You're going to draw attention! Stop that!"
"A runaway?" I asked.
"To be honest," I replied, "I'm seeking. I'm looking for..."
"Wait a minute!"
"Because she's my sister, she's been missing for months, and I miss her more than I can tell you." I replied. It was the most honest answer I had, and I hoped she could hear the sincerity in my voice.
She stood up slowly. Every movement was jerky and looked as if it hurt her as she hung her sales tag on her stand. Watching her was almost painful, I couldn't imagine how it felt to BE her.
"What?!" I replied. "I want to find Juno and bring her home because I miss her and she'll be safe there and never, ever sold, EVER."
"Follow me," she said.
"Are you okay?" I asked, genuinely concerned.
"They live in there."
... and I'll tell you the rest in a couple of days. I'm still sorting it out myself.
