The Secret Savior

I talked to Mr. Appleton today. I said I knew how worried he was about money, and maybe I could get a job to help pay for things. Maybe I could move boxes, or unload trucks, or help people reach things on tall shelves. Or like Pie Guy said in the comments, there's got to be a farm job for somebody like me who can do the work of five men and a tractor. As long as it didn't keep me from taking care of my own cows, of course.

Mr. Appleton laughed, actually laughed, for the first time since I met him. "I just got off the phone with somebody who can help us," he said. "If things go as planned, none of us will ever have to worry about money again!"

He wouldn't say anything more than that.

For a moment I thought of Dream Boy and the promise he made to provide for me. Then I remembered that Dream Boy is just a figment of my imagination. Of course Mr. Appleton is talking about somebody else, but who???

  2. You did say that...sorry, Pie Guy!!!

    It's hard to keep one eye open while you sleep, but I'll try.

  3. Well, if your dream was somehow prophetic, I hope it's a good thing, like Dream Guy would do, and not a bad thing, like some sort of circus contract like your dream also hinted. As long as you can feel good about yourself at the end of it, I'd be all for it.

    But I must admit, Mr. Appleton hasn't yet earned my trust. So I'm a little worrised about what this unknown could be.

  4. I don't really trust him either, but you've got to trust somebody...right? Maybe I can trust Dr. Crisp...

  5. I'm sure you can trust Dr. Crisp. And in any case, there's this thing called Doctor-Patient Confiedentiality.

    What it all amounts to is that anything you say to Dr. Crisp(as long as it isn't about you hurting yourself, hurting others, or doing something illegal-such as theivery)will stay with Dr. Crisp.

    Also, I've been away on vacation in Idllywild(a nice place in the mountains), and I have some freetime. I can show you some pictures I took on my digital camera-uploading them and all that. The scenery and landscape is pretty breath taking from the right view points.

  7. I can understand your lack of trust for Mr. Appleton, but don't forget he has agreed to take care of you. He didn't have to but he did. I don't think he's gonna sell you to the circus.

Illustrator Challenge

Artists can create illustrations of me or the events in my life, as long as they are appropriate for my young readers. Any previous post on this blog can be illustrated. If I like an image that goes well with a post on the blog, I may add a small thumbnail version along with credit to the artist and a link to the full-sized image. Images of me posted elsewhere should link back to the "Giant Girl Rampages" blog.

If you want to draw a picture of me, here's what you need to know:

I'm 15 years old and almost (but not quite) 18 feet tall. Mrs. Appleton says I'm very pretty and well proportioned, which I guess is a complement. I'm not super thin or anything but I think I'm in pretty good shape.

I have dirty blonde hair that's kind of wild because I trim it with Pa's old hedge trimmers. My eyes are green as the ocean, as Ma always said, but I wouldn't know because I've never seen an ocean. My skin is tanned from being out in the sun a lot but not too dark and (usually) not burned.

I wear a blouse and skirt-shorts that my mother quilted for me three years ago. They look like a big patchwork cuz she used many squares of fabric and cowhide. I've grown since then, so the skirt-shorts no longer come down to my knees, my blouse is way tight, and there's a bit of skin showing in between. I don't have any shoes (and that makes me sad to think about so I usually don't).

If you do draw my picture, send the link in a comment so I can post it to my blog. Thanks!!!

You can write fan-fiction about me if you want. Just let everyone know your story is made up and not real, unlike this blog which is absolutely 100% true.
