The Doll

by Haven Dorothy, age 10
Chapter 1

Once upon a time, a girl about 6, was a maid. She worked at a castle. Her job was to serve food, and wash dishes. Even though she had an extremely miserable life, she had a dream, and she believed God would grant it. All the other maids had dreams also, like to be Queens and princesses, and artists and things like that, but the six year old girl only had a simple dream. She wanted a doll, a doll that she could name, and dress, and talk to, a doll that she could love. The maids couldn't have any pretty things, or things that would distract them from their work. All they each were allowed to have was, a bed, a shawl, a black dress, and some very sensible shoes, nothing very nice. They didn't even have their own rooms, they all had to sleep in the same room. It was very cramped.

Haven's hair is so long and pretty, and her dress matches perfectly with the words! Love that! :)

Please tell Miss Haven that her story is great! We're all waiting on the rest! She really is a great writer! I love how she says "sensible shoes"
Great detail!

Miss her, and the rest of you, too! :)
