The Story Of Oona Dolly
Posted April 23, 2009
Oona Dolly was a birthday gift to Young Oona, from her great-aunt Rei Fujiwara, who was a doll-maker of some renown…
Auntie Rei: Happy birthday, my dear little great-niece – I have brought you a special present to mark this occasion.
Young Oona: Thank you, Auntie – such a big box! Is it – ?
Auntie Rei: – a doll? But of course, Oona dear – what else would I bring for your birthday? *chuckle*
Oona: Ohhhhhhh…Auntie! She – she’s SO pretty! And, um, she – she looks like –
AuntieRei: Yes, dear, like you.
Young Oona: Oh, Auntie, this is a WONDERFUL present – thank you SO much! I shall take very good care of her, and love her forever!
Auntie Rei: *to self* Be sure that you do, child… *chuckle*.
And so, Young Oona happily named her wonderful new doll “Oona Dolly”, and made her part of her daily life –
She dressed her, and groomed her with great care –
Young Oona: Now hold still, Oona Dolly, while I brush your hair –
Oona Dolly: Yes, Oona Mommy, I’m holding as still as I can! *giggle*.
They played at all the things that girly little girls love to do –
Young Oona: Some milk for your tea, Oona Dolly?
Oona Dolly: Oh, yes, please – I would like that very much! *smile*
At night, they slept together, their heads filled with sweet little girl dreams.
Eventually, though, little girls grow up –
Oona of course was no exception, and her thoughts centered on things other than dolls –
Oona: *calling* I’ll be right there, Paladin – I’m almost ready!
Oona Dolly was relegated to just another decoration, like the stuffed toys –
Oona Dolly: *siiiiigh*…
So, to ease the boredom –
That is why Oona Dolly became a double-agent! *da-DUM!*
Awww, it’s just a little bunny wabbit… or is it?
For one of the few resin mothers in my troupe, this was supposed to be just another Sunday, but –
