Kelsey's Adventure: Rainy days

On to the Next Day

Tomorrow came, bringing strong rainstorms with it.  Kelsey sat in her classroom looking out the window with a disappointed face.   Why does it have to rain today?  There is no way I can go to the door when it’s pouring like this.  This is such a…

“Kelsey!  Kelsey!” Chavonne interrupts.  “Come on.  Class is done.” 

Kelsey sweeps her book, notebook and pen into her backpack, joining Chavonne as she leaves the classroom.  “Sorry…I was totally thinking of something else”, Kelsey explains.

“What were you thinking about?” Chavonne asks as they walk down the hall.

“Just daydreaming.  Wishing it was nicer outside.”
Chavonne laughingly says, “Aren’t you always daydreaming?  I don’t know how you are such a good student with all of the daydreaming you do.”

Kelsey smiles. “I’m just that talented.  I’m off to English for my test.  See ya!”  She waves and heads into her English class. 

“Bye!” Chavonne says heading down the hall towards her next class.

Kelsey sits down in her seat, takes out her pen, and readies herself for her test.  The class goes quickly as does the rest of the day.  Kelsey’s afternoon is filled with homework.   The rain doesn’t stop the entire evening and continues into the next morning.  That Thursday, school drags on.  As the day goes by and the weather gets nicer, Kelsey begins thinking about the door again.  She dreams of the wonders that she might find beyond the tunnel, as she eats lunch with the other girls. 

Meredith gets up from the lunch table.  “Kelsey, are you coming to soccer tonight?”

Oh no…I completely forgot about soccer practice!   Kelsey’s heart sinks, “Yeah, of course I’ll be there.”

Kelsey muddled through soccer practice, running the drills, playing scrimmage, but not really participating at full capacity.  

Afterwards, she packed up, went home, did her homework, and then it was time for bed.  Friday was another rain filled day.  Kelsey’s prospects of getting to the door before the weekend looked horrible.   Since the weather would not cooperate with her plans to explore the door, she made plans with Kyla to go see a movie. 

She had a great time with Kyla, and the movie was pretty good, but what she was really excited about was the stars that she saw when she came out of the theater.

Please be clear and dry tomorrow!!! She thought as she said good-bye to Kyla.  While she lay in bed, waiting to drift off to sleep, she checked her phone to see what the weather was going to be for Saturday.  

A sun above “Saturday” appeared on her phone, creating a huge smile on Kelsey’s face.  How am I going to sleep?  I am so excited!  Tomorrow I’ll finally see what is down the tunnel!

Her thoughts whirled around in her head.  

Thoughts of the orange light and what it might be, where the tunnel is going to lead, what adventures is she going to have?  Even with all of her excitement, she finally drifted off to sleep, but her dreams continued to contemplate what her day tomorrow may entail.

Kelsey is finally going to make it to the tunnel.  What adventure awaits her at the end?  Find out next week!

Oh, my goodness, how did you do those movie theater pictures?! You literally made me gasp at how amazingly realistic it looked! :)

I have a projector that I used for the movie. My camera is on a tripod so that it can take the pictures in low light. So when the dolls face the screen light reflects on their faces just like in a real movie theater! It turned out really neat!
