Photoshoot of Dilapidated Buildings

Two weekends ago, myself and a few friends went to a nearby abandon mill and took a  bunch of photos. It was extremely fun!

Don’t worry! We were allowed to be there. A few years ago the property was bought by the government and now they’ve been in the process of clearing some of it out and restoring what is left. It is so beautiful even though it’s dilapidated. I thought it would be fun to show you the pictures I got. I hope you like it!


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I made a slide show for anyone who doesn’t want to read each individual pictures. It doesn’t go into details about the pictures though.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This was the building we first took pictures at. I’m not quite sure what it used to be but now all that is left is a brick wall.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Here are a lot of bricks that are falling apart, loose and crumbling.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

I’m guessing this is a boarded up window. It has vines all over it.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

I think it is cool that you can see the sun shining through in this picture.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Here is a close up of the wall. I think it looks so pretty and jagged.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Here is another shot with my friend posing for another picture in the background.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Here is a picture of one of the open doorways in the brick wall.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

My friend posing in the doorway.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The side of the door way had a rusted little hook which I thought looked very photogenic 😀 .

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Here is the arch over the door way which has some crushed bricks and weeds in it.

The next spot we went was to the mill.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This is part of the mill. Although it is falling apart it still looks beautiful. The other pasts have been torn down.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Here is up close. I love the aqua pop that is on the building. I doubt they added that on purpose but it is really cool and adds a nice touch to pictures!

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This is what the inside looked like. It wouldn’t be safe to go in the building since it is falling apart so I don’t have any pictures of inside.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This I found interesting. Sitting on the ground, is an old fire extinguisher with lots of layers of dust covering it. I wonder how long this has been there.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Here is a window with missing panes of glass.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

I’m not sure what that thing is called but it is old and rusted and made a good picture.

The following pictures are all edited except for one special picture.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

I found this super cool edit on Picmonkey where you can make parts of the picture back and white but give other parts the original coloring. I used this a lot!

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This picture is of a broken window.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Here are some metal stakes sticking out of a rock.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Here is my outfit. I muted some parts to make them super dark so the natural color really stands out. My cami and flannel are from Forever 21. The jeans are from a brand called Ana. My boots are UGGS.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This is the first picture I showed earlier but edited.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

I have this edited pictures where almost everything is black and white expect my friend and a rusted stake.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Lastly, there is this picture I snapped of my friend. I DID NOT edit it. I think it looks so cool because I caught it right when the sun was behind her.


Let me know which picture was your favorite! Do you ever go take photo shoots?

See ya soon 🙂

Life Behind the Camera (Episode 1)

 

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES
*Plays some kind of intro TV theme song*

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“Hi guys! Or girls. Actually probably girls. My name is Bailey and you may be thinking ‘who is she?’ Well I’m better known by my characters names, Novia from Camp Summer and After Camp or Jasmine from Worst Enemy, Best Friend. That is the point of this series, to show the blogging community what the Americangirlguide clan is like, off set. Because we are really just a bunch of sisters who are slightly insane. This intro is getting long and I’m just rambling which isn’t like me. Anyway, so let me start.”

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“So Mom said I needed to give a quick tour of the bedroom because a lot had changed since the last time we showed you a doll house tour. She said to mention it was in a post linked here. She likes to add lots of links. Anyway, this is the left half of our very small room which is the more studious side. It has our desk and book shelf.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

On this side we have Brook’s flute and music stand along with our beds. By our I mean Brooklyn’s, Jessica’s, and mine. Bethany and Nikki have their own room which we’ll show later. In the back of our room you can see our three dogs, Sugar, Pepper, and Rolf. My mom likes dogs so she made sure that we have some.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“Bailey what are you doing?” asks Jessica.

“Oh wow, you are super out of focus Jessica. I’m shooting the first part of Mom’s new series.”

“Why didn’t you tell me? I mean I am the star,” Jessica demands.

“SHHH. They don’t know about that series yet!” Bailey replies.

“So basically I’m a nobody to them?”Jessica questions.

“No, you are John, Ryan, and Ms. Madison to them.”

“Two of those are boys. I’m so excited to finally have a major role as a girl. And my name is really pretty too,” Jessica said.

“Don’t give them anymore spoilers Jessica!”

“Ok, fine. Do you know where Nikki is? I want to show her my new clothes,” Jessica announces.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

WHAT? You went shopping?? You hate shopping and malls and fashion. Why on earth did you go shopping?”

“Can’t I try something new? Besides this new series gave me an excuse to buy some more clothes. Keegan’s wardrobe is cute but it needs more pieces,” Jessica said carelessly.

“You just gave out her name!”

“Who’s name? Ohhhh, you mean Keegan. Ahem. I mean that person. Well you can just edit that out right?” Jessica said.

“No I can’t. Now stop giving spoilers!”

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“Hi there! It’s Bethany now! They’ve switched cameras so that Jessica doesn’t give out anymore spoilers. So I’m supposed to show you my room.”

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“We have our wardrobe in the right corner, our desk in the middle, and our bunk beds pushed up against the left side of the room. Sorry about the mess. I just got home from dance class and haven’t had time to clean it up.”

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“BROOKLYN! Why is there a DOG on my bed?! You know I can’t stand dog hair!” Bethany said suddenly.

“Well,” Brooklyn started.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“Hey, Nikki, look at these cute clothes I got,” Jessica interrupted.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“Oh, cute! Next time you should bring me Jessica,” Nikki said, “By the way, I think Bethany is having a slight over reaction above me so you may want to get out of her way!”

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

BROOK. WHY WOULD YOU BRING A DOG IN MY BED?? I need to do my homework but I can’t when SOMEONE brings a DOG which has DOG HAIR on my bed,” said Bethany, hyperventilating.

“BETHANY, THE DOG IS HYPOALLERGENIC!” Brooklyn screamed back.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

*slow motion*

“WHAAA,” said Brooklyn.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“What just happened?” someone yelled as they all ran over.

“She’s unconscious! We need to take her to the hospital,” someone else said.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

DUN-DUH-DUH.

And that ends episode 1 of Life Behind the Camera.


Okay, so, I may have created a new series. I know a few posts ago I said I wasn’t enjoying writing doll posts as much but then I wrote this and I REALLY liked it. So, I think I’m just going to write both kinds of posts for now. I’m still figuring it all out.

Also, I’m having trouble figuring out how to write this since the whole post is dialogue. Was it clear who was speaking? I’d love to hear your suggestions in the comments 🙂 Let me know what you think of the new series and if you would like to see the other series I spilled some spoilers for.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Summer Signature

My small group at church starts back up tonight! We are getting something called Cajun Snow 🙂 Have you ever tried it?

Finale Part Two (After Camp)

Aisha’s POV

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Here I was, my special spot. I always use it to think. Why had I been so rude to Novia? She was just trying to help. I began to realize why as I let my thoughts drift,

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Back to the day my mom died and my dad handed me over to social services.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

When I was just a little girl who just wanted someone to love her.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

When I was told I would be going to camp and when I met Novia and the pranks she played.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

I remember becoming friends and moving here. I recalled bowling on Friday nights and never, ever, being able to get a strike and family day every Sunday, where I slaughter everyone in Monopoly.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

I started sobbing. It was hard thinking about all the good and bad that had happened. All these great memories would become that and no more. Novia probably hated me. As soon as I got back to the house the social worker would be there to pick me up and I would leave this behind. After sitting for a few more minutes, I decided it was time to face it. I climbed up the hill to the house, I’d better start packing.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

*Woof, Woof*

“I’m sorry about this, I just thought we were ready to handle her. I guess we aren’t ready for this extra responsibility,” I overheard my foster mom say.

They were talking about me. Frantically, I entered the room.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

WAIT, WAIT, what?” all of a sudden I was confused, instead of a social worker, it was Principal Fletcher, in workout clothes, holding a dog leash.

“Oh, Aisha! I’m sorry I forgot to mention, that I’m giving up on Pepper. It is a lot of extra stress to train a puppy, especially this one. ”

“So this isn’t about what happened at school? And you’re not sending me back?”

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“Oh, that is where I come in. I’m sorry that we have not had more time to talk about the situation at school. It was brought to my attention that you were being bullied and I learned that it was a joke put on by some rude girls. I’m sorry I blamed you,” Principal Fletcher said.

“Oh, that isn’t a big deal! As long as the social worker isn’t coming,” I replied.

“She is, but only because we want to pursue adopting you!!”

“Really? Thank you! Is it okay if I run over and talk to Novia? I need to talk to her.”

“Sure, just be back by 1:15, so we can work out the details,” Eileen replied.

I couldn’t believe it! I was getting adopted, by people who loved me and cared about me. I ran over to Novia’s house and top speed.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“Novia!!” I exclaimed, “I’m so sorry, I couldn’t bear losing you so I overreacted and was mean. Will you ever forgive me?”

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“Oh Aisha, I knew you would come back! Of course I will!” Novia said.

I felt so relieved to have my friend back!

“Novia, Aisha, come here! I need to tell you something,” Mr. Scott yelled.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“I told you I would make a decision about whether or not we would be staying here or if we would move. That would affect you as well Aisha so I’m glad you are here for this, “He began.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“I know you just moved here Aisha and that you and Novia are amazing friends. Jake, Novia, I know you’ve lived here your whole life. I also know that your futures will be greatly impacted by this move, if I accept. With that being said, I still think there are a lot of benefits involved with the move and that’s why I have decided to accept the position. We will be moving as soon as school’s out.”

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“Cool dad! I will miss this place though,” Jake said.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“Girls, any thoughts,” Mr. Scott asked.

I said in a shaky voice, “I love Novia, she is my best friend, but you are her father and you know what is good for her. Just because I’m selfish and want her to stay here with me, doesn’t mean I should keep her from such a great opportunity. So Mr. Scott, I support you decision.”

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“Oh, Aisha, how did I ever not like you? You are the greatest friend ever. Don’t forget that.”

“We have a long road ahead, Novia, and a full life to live, but trust me, I’ll never forget you,” I claimed.

“Me neither,” Novia promised.

————————————————————————

YES! I finally posted this! What did you think of the ending? I have two endings and I’m writing this outro before I even write the post.  So even I will be somewhat surprised 🙂 I hope you liked it! Let me know what you think by commenting. It’s a cliffhanger… MWHAHAHA!!!

By the way, I already have a plot forming in my mind for the next part of the story, but who knows if I’ll get to do it. Bye for now!

{Posts Of Old #1}

You know how many people have been doing these posts? I love them!! So I thought I’d show you a post I wrote in October of 2014. (Excuse the blurry pictures. We can all see my improvements.) Feel free to leave a comment on that post and tell me if you try out the hairstyle. (Here is a link back to the original post) Let’s get started.

————————————————————————

Hi! Here is a fishtail braids tutorial that was requested by DOLLDIYs (Now Flourishing by Restful falls) and I have wanted to do for a while but haven’t had the chance. By the way some of the pictures might be blurry, gritty or of different quality’s because my camera has been doing weird thing. Anyways(,) Enjoy!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

You will need: a spray bottle, a doll hair brush, two elastics (certain styles will require more) and a toothbrush

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

First split the dolls hair in half. You might want to tie back the one side in a low pony tail so that the other hair doesn’t get in the way.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Next split that hair into two sections but don’t tie it off.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Take a small section from the very front of the outer side and cross it to the inner section then take the most inner section from the inner side and cross it over. This works best if you do it tiny and tight.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Keep doing this till you get to the end of the hair.

image

Tie off with an elastic or scrunci at the bottom and repeat on the other side.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Some variations are: add a braid to one piece, stop at the ear with braid for a cool look or a single fishtail down the back.

Here are photos of Bethany in her finished look.

Operation Alamo (After Camp Finale Part 1)

Aisha’s POV

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“Can I go to Novia’s?” I asked.

“Sure, just be back for lunch at noon,” Eileen replied.

“Ok, see ya,” and with that I ran out the door.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

As soon as I was out of sight I slowed down my pace. Novia would probably still be sleeping anyway. I was so stressed. I couldn’t handle the fact that I might need to leave this place were I felt secure and happy. The past few days I’d been being rude to everyone. What was wrong with me?

Novia’s POV

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“NOVIEEEE,” Jake yelled.

UGH! Jake I’m trying to sleep. Just because you like to run ten miles before the sun comes up doesn’t mean I have to wake up that early!” I moaned.

“Someone is here to see you. Guess whoo?”

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“I can come back, uh, sorry.” Aisha started.

“She’ll be awake soon enough, probably by June.” Jake said jokingly.

I groaned again for good measure and made my way down the stairs.

Twenty minutes later after a big breakfast of pancakes and orange juice I was wide awake.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Aisha and I climbed the stairs to my room for a talk.

“Explain your plan, now,” Aisha pleaded.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Now came the hard part. Operation Alamo wasn’t risky or exciting and I didn’t think Aisha would like it. It was our only option. “Ash, you may not like this but my idea is to talk to them and explain our ideas, concerns, and issues.”

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

She paused, “Talk to them?? Do you really think that would work. Novia! I trusted you to have a good plan. We have my whole life riding on this. I can’t let an opportunity slip away. Adults don’t listen! My dad never listened, anyway,” and then she angrily stormed out.

————————————————————————

Duh-dun-duh!! I can’t believe this series is almost over. It went by so quickly. What a super long title for a pretty short post 😉 I know this part of the finale is short, but it would have been super long as one part AND I can’t give the ending away, now can I?

See ya soon:D

(Episode 5 of After Camp)

*If you haven’t read the previous episode won’t make sense so click *here* to read it.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“I have been offered the new position! It would mean we might need to transfer to San Francisco in a few months.” my dad announced.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“WHAT?! You said no, right?” I exclaimed.

“I haven’t given them an answer yet. I will need to before our meeting Tuesday. I think it will be good for us to have a change.”

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“But Daddy,” I pouted, “I like it here just fine! This is my home.-” After that, I rushed off.

Jake tried to stop me, but I wiggled out of his grasp and ran to my room.

Aisha’s POV

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“Aisha, I’m sorry to have to call you back, but we have something very important to discuss,” Principal Fletcher said.

“I received this note, ” she explained.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“It is an anonymous note from one of our students telling me that you have been fighting and threatening them,” she continued, “I’m not saying I believe them, but I still have to tell your social worker. I hope that we can resolve this and that you didn’t do this Aisha.”

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

I walked into the door after talking with the principal. How could someone do this? I tried to hold back the tears, but soon my eyes became blurry and the tears escaped. Wait, I heard voices. It was Eileen and Paul.

“I don’t know, Paul. I’m not feeling so confident that she is improving. I’d never thought she’d be so naughty,” Eileen said.

“We have to give them an answer. Do you think it’s working out or do you think we need to send her back?”

 They couldn’t do this to me. This was the only place I’d ever felt at home, but what could I do about it?

talking

*Novia and Aisha are on the phone*

“Aisha! I have horrible news. My dad has been offered the new position! We have about a week to decide,” Novia said hurriedly.

“Oh-no. I have a problem, too. Someone, Britney I think, slipped a note under Ms. Fletcher’s door. It was about me and how I’ve been hurting her and threatening her. Now, it is on my record and I overheard my foster parents talking. I think they are going to send me away,” I sobbed.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“Aisha, listen closely, we only have one more option. Execute Operation Alamo!” Novia said.

—————————————————————-

Groundhogs or Gophers ~An AGPS~

Jessica’s POV

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

My brain is. unicorns… Yup, this is me Jessica (the one in the cute pink shirt) when I’m attempting to wake up in the morning. Until I drink about two cups of water, I can’t function and my brain is basically full of unicorns. And candy. Lots and lots of candy. 

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES
*This is my sister Bailey, she is the brainiac of the family and also gets crazy bed head*

“Good morning everybody,” Bailey said yawning, “Does anybody know what day it is today?”

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

All of a sudden, my newest sister Brooklyn, ran into the room shouting, “HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!” We all stood there in silence until my Twin said,

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“It Febuary 2nd….. Valentine’s day is two weeks away. Today is just an average Tuesday.”

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“Incorrect!” I said, “It’s actually, drum roll please, Groundhog day!”

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“Oh, I knew that!”

I inetrrputed her, “Groundhog Day is something we do on Febuary 2nd. The folklore is that if it is cloudy when a groundhog emerges from its burrow on this day, then spring will come early. If it is sunny, the groundhog will supposedly see its shadow and retreat back into its burrow, and the winter weather will continue for another month and a half.Info via

“Wow, that’s cool Jessica, but if you keep blabbing we are going to be late.”

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“At school they decided we needed to do the whole traditional groundhog ceremony.”

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Isn’t he adorable? He really liked all the attention he got. He ended up seeing his shadow so… I guess we have six more weeks of winter.

Did you like my commentary (which included unicorns and candy)? If you did comment below. If this post gets good veiws maybe mom will let me do another post. I hope everybody had an amazing day.

Happy Groundhog Day!

P.S. Mom also wanted me to include this picture for  Megan’s BIBPC (boring into beautiful photo challenge)

Mom took this right after we got a lot of snow. It rained yesterday, washing a lot of it away:( Doesn’t the house look so cozy?

When All Else Fails(Episode 4 of After Camp)

Novia’s POV

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

*I changed the principal from a boy to a girl, sorry if that’s confusing*

“Hello girls,” said a calm cool voice.

“Hi, Principle Fletcher,” we all chorused.

My best friend Aisha and I had just been called into the principal’s office, along with our archenemies, Britney and Leia. I used to be best friends with them, but that’s a different story.

I tried to tune back in to Ms. Fletcher, “Girls, we won’t have any cat fights going on at this school. We need you to settle this little dispute. If I hear of any more bad behavior from any of you, I’ll be considering suspension.”

I shot Aisha a quick glance. If she got suspended she wouldn’t be able to stay here! The foster system would send her somewhere else. This wasn’t good.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“Sorry Principal,” Britney said sweetly.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“We can work things out. I’m very sorry,” I exclaimed.

Still in Novia’s POV

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Click. Click. “Done! I finished another application paper.” Jake announced.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

We were going through Jake’s old school files. He was weird and kept every single file and school paper he had ever completed! Instead of getting free college from Dad’s work Jake would just get enough scholarships so dad won’t have to change jobs.

LOOK! You have got an F?”

“That won’t help the applications Jake,” Novia said concerned.

“It’s fine. It was a long time ago. Do you think Ryan is almost done with his assignment for our plan?” Jake questioned.

Ryan’s POV

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“Mom, Dad, can I talk to you about something?” I asked.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“Sure son, what is this about?” Dad responded.

“Well I was just wondering, about Aisha.”

Novia’s POV

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“Kids, we need to talk.” My father said, “I’ve gotten news back from my boss and…..”

—————————————————————-

Cliffhanger! Whew, it’s done. I have a multitude (I felt like using strong verbs, LOL)  of posts coming up, look forward to them. I’m gonna start writing my part for Word Crafters now. See you soon *waves hand*

Testing Trustworthiness (Episode 3 Of After Camp)

Aisha’s POV

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“Hey Aisha, what’s up? You’re not looking very happy,” said Ryan.

He was right. In my mind, all I could think about was those mean girls and wonder why they didn’t like me.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“Ryan, can I ask you a question? When you first moved in, did you feel accepted?” I asked.

“Yes, they loved me and cared about me, unlike anyone else. They stuck by me, even when I made mistakes and wasn’t the nicest.” he replied.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“What about with other kids?” I asked.

“I had my share of fights and problems with other kids, but eventually I got over it.” He said with a laugh.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“Thanks for the advice Ryan. I’ve always wanted a big brother, maybe I’ll finally get my wish.”

I got up and walked to my room. I hadn’t even tried to use our plan, but in turn I had. Novia and I were just one step closer to our goal.

 Two Days Later…

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Novia and I were walking through the dark, dim halls on our way to chemistry class. It was gloomy outside and I think everyone inside was having a bad day. I knew I was, first I spilled a bowl of cereal on my new pants, then we had a pop quiz in history, and now we had to go to Chem.

“Hey losers, whatcha doing?” sneered Karen.

Ugh, I really disliked mean girls, “Hi Karen,” I said sweetly, “We were just heading to chemistry. What about you?”

“Oh, you’re in Chemistry? That’s to bad, because I am too. Hopefully I don’t have to sit next to you two.”

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

HEY! What’s going on here?” Jake demanded.

I looked up and saw Jake glaring at Karen, with him was Ryan.

Karen stuttered, “I was just talking to your sisters about how awesome it was that we are in the same class.”

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“Bye Karen,” I said loudly.

“Sorry about that, some kids are just jerks,” said Ryan.

“See you after school. We have to run. We’re gonna be late!” I said hurriedly.

 

Novia’s POV

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“I now call this meeting to order,” I announced, “Aisha, I know this is an unplanned meeting, but there is something important that we must discuss.”

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“We decided at our last meeting to meet in a week to decide if our subjects have passed the test, but I think after what we saw today that we should vote now! How do you feel Aisha?”

“I agree. All in favor of inviting Jake and Ryan to our plan says ‘I'” Aisha proclaimed.

“I!” she said.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“I! Let’s bring them in,” I said.

“Ryan, Jake, you can come in now!” she called.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“I feel like I’m in court or something,” Ryan joked.

I cleared my throat, “Boys, we need to tell you something top-secret. We might have lied to you a few times, sorry, but that’s only because of what we are about to tell you.”

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Then Aisha said, “We recently found out that Novia and Jake’s dad has been working more and is grieving deeply.  I am also trying to get adopted. So, Novia and I have concocted a plan. We would like you two to be involved, but only if you promise not to tell anyone.”

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“HA,” said Ryan “I told you they were up to something.”

“So you were right…” muttered Josh.

BOYS, are you going to help us or not?”

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“I’m in,” said Josh.

“I’m game,” Ryan said.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“I’m ready to do this.” said Aisha.

I looked at each of them and then placed my hand on top and said, “Thank you so much, all three of you. We’ve got a lot of work ahead of us, so we better get started!”
