"Where is she?" she said to herself. "She said she's be here less twenty minutes from now!"
A few minutes later, there was a knock at the door, and Kirsten ran to open it.
"Hello!" Molly smiled. "I'm sorry. It's freezing cold out there, and it rained all morning, so it's very muddy."
"That's okay! Come on in and take off your sweater."
"Thanks," said Molly, as Kirsten closed the door.
"I like your outfit," said Kirsten.
"Thanks. Yours is pretty too."
"Thank you!" Kirsten said, blushing a little. "Give me your sweater to hang up." Molly handed her the sweater.
"Oh, not much. How about you?"
"Same," Molly smiled. "What should we do?"
"But it's dark!"
"It's fun to go out in the dark sometimes!" Kirsten laughed.
Kirsten pulled back the curtain and they looked outside.
"You're right!" said Kirsten. "It does look cold! Alright. How about we play some games?"
"Okay. What's in there?"
"Just some junk and things... Ah! Here it is!"
"I love pick-up-sticks!"
"Great! I do too!"
"Can we pay snap with the cards?"
"Sure! Which first?"
"You wanna deal?" she asked.
"You can. I'm too slow.
"Ooohh! Nine!" said Kirsten.
"I think you won that, Molly," said Kirsten.
"Okay, thanks!" Molly took the two cards, and they each put down another one.
"Should we play pick-up-sticks?" asked Kirsten.
They packed away the cards, and Kirsten took to rubber band off the pick-up-sticks.
"You go first," she smiled.
When Molly picked up the last one a while later, they counted their sticks.
"I have nineteen," said Kirsten.
"I have fifteen. You win!"
"Fair enough, since I won most of the snap games," Molly laughed. "What should we do now?"
"Well, we could - oh, no! It's getting late!" Kirsten said, looking at the clock. "We'd better get ready for bed or my mom'll come and make us!"
"Alright," she said.
"We'd better get changed."
"Yes! I left my bag back at my place!"
"Okay. Don't worry. You can borrow one of mine!"
"Are you sure?"
"Of course! I'll just go get one."
"Oh, thanks!" Molly, sighed, relieved.
Kirsten ran to her closet.
"Is this okay?" she asked. "It's a little summery, but I've been wearing my warmer one."
"That's fine! I just don't wanna sleep in my clothes!" The girls laughed.
"Here, then." Kirsten handed Molly the nightgown.
"Molly," Kirsten giggled, "you look funny!"
"I... can't... get... this dress... off!" Molly mumbled from under the dress.
"I'll help!" said Kirsten, pulling the dress over Molly's head.
"Thanks!" The girls took off the rest of their things and put n their nightgowns. "Can you button the back for me, Kirsten?" asked Molly.
"Of course I will!"
"Good then," said Kirsten, doing the button on Molly's nightgown.
"We can share!"
"Okay. I'll leave her in the middle then, so she can be between us... Which side of the bed so you want?"
"I don't mind."
"Well, I'll take the wall-side, so if you need to get up you won't have to wake me up first."
"You get up now," she said, wriggling to the far side.
"Goodnight, Kirsten," she smiled.
BEHIND THE SCENES NOTES: If I ever thought that making a photostory was easy, I don't now! For the picture where Molly remembers her nightgown, I had to climb under my bed! Then, Molly fell into Kirsten, so I had to get out and pose them again, and then I didn't like how she looked, so I tried to pose her from under the bed, and she fell again! I went under the bed for the 3rd time, and, bumping my head and then lying flat (chin included) on the floor, realized I couldn't take the picture at a good angle from under the bed, because it was too low, but out of the bed was too close! That's why it's such a funny angle. Also, the truth is, she was meant to have a nightgown, but I forgot her backpack in the first photos, and my camera was running low, using the last batteries in the house, so I couldn't take unnecessary pictures. Instead, I decided to have her forget it and borrow one of Kirsten's, lol! :)
