New Friend. :)

“Oh, it is so pretty, especially at Christmas! We put up twelve different trees and have a huge party. My dad always hires performers to put on a production of the Nutcracker and we have absolutely the best dishes. You have to come!” In her moment of excitement, she grabbed her new friend’s hand. “Please say you will. It’ll be so much fun.”

“But yes, just saying that is making me homesick already. I miss my parents, of course. I also miss Sir Beauregard. That’s my horse. He’s a Friesian and he’s my baby. He’s going to be so lonely without me.” Kit made a slight pouty face. “I’m going to have to be sure to write him a letter every week so he doesn’t miss me too much.” Kit’s family owned other horses, but Beau was special and he was all hers. “Do you have any pets?”

“Yes, I love Teen Witch. Last month’s issue was fabulous with the entire serious on updating boring uniforms. I don’t know if I’m bold enough to do the actual alterations that they did on some of them, but I can definitely do the accessorizing.” She wished she was brave enough to do things like alter the hemline or make the robe sparkle, but she didn’t want to get into trouble her first year and end up being labeled as some sort of rebel.

Oh! Ayla was interested in Book Club! Kit could have jumped for joy. It seemed her fears were unfounded as her new friend seemed interested in joining a lot of the same things that she was interested in. “Book Club definitely sounds like fun, but I think I’ll skip on Baking Club. Art Club, I might, but I don’t think I would be very good at it. The last time I tried drawing, it ended up just being a bunch of stick figures. Are you good at Art?” She wasn’t really sure what to say about Archery. She didn’t know if her mother would approve or not, but it did have a sort of romanticism about it. It was like something out of a novel. She could just picture a warrior using his bow and arrow and saving the damsel in distress. She nearly sighed at the thought.

“I hope we both get into Crotalus then,” Kit stated decisively, as if there were no other option. “We can have late night talks and make sure our outfits are always perfect.” She could just see it now. They would be able to be fashion icons.

“No, but there a couple of them were on my wagon.” She adjusted the pink plastic frames on her face and glanced over to the one boy she remembered seeing. She hadn’t talked to him, because she wasn’t sure if they were the same age or not. She had felt a bit out of place on the wagon with other kids talking to kids that they knew. But now that she was looking at him, he looked rather ordinary and she dismissed him out of her mind.

“Back to this ball…I didn’t know that. But honestly, it might be a blessing that we missed it. Can you imagine any of the boys here making a worthwhile date?” Kit would have loved to have gone to a ball, but she didn’t want to go without having someone to dance with. It would have been rather embarrassing to have to go alone and sit out on all of the dancing. “Maybe they’ll have another one sometime.” She didn’t want to get Ayla down about the ball though. Maybe when another one came around, they would be able to have proper, maybe even older, dates. That would be something!

    “Welcome to the Southern United States, where it rarely gets below 40 degrees.” Ayla said with a smile. “I’ve heard that Connecticut is really pretty though, and you guys get snow. We don't get snow... more

        Ayla couldn’t see a reason for her parents to object to her visiting Kit in Connecticut over the holiday. She was so excited, and hoped that they would let her. How lucky was it that she and Kit... more
