A Bee In Their Easter Bonnets

It EASTER ev'ybody, an' you know what dat mean

A-Easter Egg Hunting We Will Go



Dorothy: **checking text message** Natsumi says she’s waiting for us –

Oona: No prob, I’m almost ready here –

Demelza: I wonder what she’s wearing today *smile* –



Oona: Knowing her, it’ll be classic, and classy –

Demelza: Oh yes, she always knows just what to wear – though I hope she thinks about Easter, and spring, and maybe something sweet and pastel-y –



Demelza: Speaking of Easter, your bunny and Peep are so cute, and you even dressed up that darling little doll in a bunny costume, too! I know you told us a while ago, but where did you get this little doll that looks like you?



Oona: Haha, she does look like me, doesn’t she? She was a special birthday gift from my Great-aunt Rei, when I turned nine. Auntie Rei was a famous doll-maker, so it was quite an honor – though she seemed to think the doll had some special powers –

Demelza: What a fun story – I wonder what kind of powers she meant –


(Previously: The Story Of Oona Dolly)



Dorothy: The power to creep people out, that’s for sure – but then, most dolls do *hmph*.



Demelza: Oh, Dorothy! She’s not at all creepy – she’s very nice.  I  like her, anyway…



Oona: Doro didn’t play much with dolls when we were kids, did you? *laughs* Anyway, I’m ready now, so let’s be off to Nat’s –

Dorothy: **texting** Sure – I’ll let her know –

Demelza: You didn’t play dolls, Doro?

Oona: She was kinda half-hearted about it, which is funny, considering how she likes to run things –



Dorothy: Eh – it’s more fun playing with REAL people *snerk* –

**they exit**



Oona Dolly: Okay, the coast’s clear – let’s get on the road. Gus’ll be waiting for us –

Lavender Bunny: Gotcha – don’t wanna keep Gus waiting –

Yellow Chick Peep: Yes, Gus hates it when you keep him waiting!
