Over the weekend, the girls were sitting around watching it rain. “We need to think of something to do, we obviously can’t go outside and play” said Samantha. “School starts Monday, we could get our stuff all ready” said Rebecca. Kit rolled her eyes at both of them.
“I know!” said Rebecca. “Let’s have a party to celebrate the new BeForever releases this week! We can wear our meet outfits and make special desserts and tea.”
Kit started to cry. “I don’t have a meet outfit…remember? Mine was lost before I got here.”
“Oh no, I totally forgot” said Rebecca. “I am sooooo so sorry.”
She gave Kit a big hug.
Samantha suddenly got an idea. “I have some outfits that aren’t American Girl but are old-fashioned; I’ve had them a long time. They are dressy too, perfect for a party. And I have exactly three! They were made by a company called Pittsburgh Originals; they are no longer in business. I got them before they were no longer available.”
“Oh thank you!” said Kit. “You are such a good friend and you always know just what to do. I can’t wait to see them.”
Samantha quickly pulled out a box that held the outfits. “They need a little ironing, but I think they will be perfect.”
The girls decided who would wear which outfit and decided what they were going to make to eat. Rebecca made cookies, Kit baked a cake, and Samantha was in charge of getting everything ready for the tea. They set everything up in the dining room for the party, and then went to get dressed.
“This is so much fun!” said Rebecca. “I agree, and this cake is really good!” said Kit. “Of course it’s good, you baked it!” giggled Samantha. They played games and listened to music from the 70’s to honor their friends Julie and Ivy who weren’t there. They talked about their friends Kaya, Addy, and Josephina, and remembered Kirsten, and Molly too. Samantha started laughing when she remembered the time Felicity and Elizabeth went horseback riding and ended up in the pond. Kit wondered how her friend Ruthie was. Rebecca thought about Caroline and her boat. They all agreed that they missed everyone. Just then there was a knock at the door.
“I wonder who that could be?” said Samantha. She went to answer it. When she opened the door, she couldn’t believe her eyes…
