The Parker family bounced along the neighborhood, eagerly awaiting the warm doll house…
Well, not all the Parker girls.
“Who wouldn’t Molly come to Olive Garden with us? It literally makes no sense! I thought she was planning to get married to the all you can eat breadsticks! And the unlimited amount of cheese you can put on your salad!” Lindsey gushed. Clearly, Molly wasn’t the only one who was in love with the food served at Olive Garden.
“She said something about needing to practice her skills, and I didn’t want to hear any more about it after that,” Magnolia shuddered at the thought of having an in depth conversation with Molly about her skills. Skills that probably involved easter eggs, lots of confetti, and purple sunglasses.
Kit patted her belly loudly, “All I know is that that ravioli…oof. So good but so bad…”
Grace, the one who was second in command when Emily was touring colleges al around California and wasn’t with the Parker family, made some very rare commentary.
She shivered, teeth chattering, “Geez, it’s so cold out here! Can’t wait to get outside!”
Kit continued, “Just so everyone knows… the bathroom will be occupied,”
“What? Just an FYI!”
“Guys….” A ripple of “yeah?” and “What?” was murmered among the 11 other sisters.
“Spit it out Gracie!!” Valerie needed to work on her patience…
“Do any of you have the keys?”
“YOU.” Amelia separated every word with a pause, “WERE. SUPPOSED. TO,” she whispered loudly into Grace’s ears, “bring. the. keys.”
“Graceieeeee,” Valerie fake whined, “we’re going to freeze!!”
“WAIT!” Lindsey screeched, and all eyes turned to her, “Why don’t we yell at Molly through the door!”
Without another word, the 11 sisters shouted in unison, “MOOOOOLLLYYYYYYY!”
“I KNOW PLACES WE CAN,” Molly whipped her hair like a true deranged pop star, “HIIIIIIiiiiiIIIIIIIiiiiiiIIIIIIDE”
“Uggggh, I bet she’s rocking out again to her stupid Taylor Swift Music..”
Nora nodded. Ever since Last Summer , the two had been inseperable.
“WHAT did you just say?” Amelia started to make her way over to Kit with fists ready to defend her dear T Swizzle, but Lindsey blocked her way.
“BUT GUYS!” Elle screamed once again, “we need to plan our survival. We need to break into our own house.”
A moment of silence was rare in the family, but it happened right then.
Elle dumped the contents of the bag onto the concrete ground.
“Honestly Elle, why do you even pack a bag? We went on a family dinner not a scavenger hunt.”
Grace muttered after Nora was done, “Why would you need that moldy strawberry?
“Hey! You never know what you’ll face out here!”
“In the quiet suburbs of a small California city?”
“Downtown is only like half an hour’s drive from here!”
Valerie bent down and snatched the straightener, “Hey! This is mine!”
Amelia took one good look at Valerie’s curls, “Why would you need a straightener?”
“It was an as seen on tv ad…”
“That explains why it’s purple!”
“Hey! And this is my bowling ball!” Lindsey was becoming as bitter as the rest of the sisters, “I feel like I should hit someone with it…”
“And this is my favorite tennis racket! Seriously, do you just steal all our stuff and keep it in this bag?”
Hazel picked up a domino, “Hey, we need to stop fighting! If we want to sleep in our beds tonight at all instead of this freezing weather, we need to break into our own house with a plan. And clearly not all of us are dressed appropriately for the weather.
Lindsey in her capri jeans and off the shoulder top with bare arms, “Darn right you are Hazel!”
While they made a plan…
“AAAAAAAaaaaAAND YOU CALL ME UP AGAIN JUST TO BRRREAK ME LIKE A PROMISE, SO CASUALLY CRUEL IN THE NAME OF BEING HONEST…”
“CAUSE YEAH I DID SOMETHING BAAAAAAAAAAD BUT WHY’S IT FEEL SO GOOOD?”
“NEW TO TOWN WITH A MADE UP NAME IN THE ANGEL’S CITY CHASIN FORTUNE AND FAME…”
“CAUSE DARLING I’M A NIGHTMARE DRESSED LIKE A DAYDREAM!”
“I DON’T TRUST NOBODY AND NOBODY TRUSTS ME, I’LL BE THE ACTRESS STARRING IN YOUR BAAAAAD DREAMSS”
“CAUSE BABY I COULD BUILD A CASTLEEEE OUT OF ALL THE BRICKS THEY THREW AT MEEEeeeEEE AND EVERY DAY IS LIKE A BATTLE BUT EVERY NIGHT WITH US IS LIKE A DREEEEAAAM BABY WE’RE THE NEW ROMANTICS, COME ON COME ALONG WITH ME…”
“Are you sure about this Val?”
“Yeah I’m sure! Emily won’t mind if we break the window just to get inside of our own house because we forgot the keys!”
“Ok! Ready… Aim..”
“I GUESS I’LL JUST STUMBLE ON HOME TO MY CATS…ALONE!”
Kit ran up to the next window, furiously pounding on it with her tennis racket, “BREAK BREAK BREAK WINDOW!”
“AND THE HATER’S GONNA HATE HATE HATE HATE HAAAAATE,”
“Are you sure I shouldn’t put my bowling ball though?”
“BREAK BREAK BREAK WINDOW!”
“CAUSE I’VE SEEN SPARKS FLYYY WHENEVER YOUUU SMILE,”
“I’m just kind of having a chrisis right now! I dissed Taylor Swift! I dissed the woman that comes to my concerts all the time! I straight up burned her like.. Harry Styles or Calvin Harris or..” she was battling tears and whispered ominously, “Kim Kardashian and KANYE WEST!”
She sank to the floor in shame, “Uh… sorry about that! Hey do you know if anyone had actually, ya know, tried the door handle?”
Nora was top busy sobbing to reply.
Paisley twisted the handle a few times, until finally…
“See ya Nora! I’m gonna go listen to some Taylor Swift With Molly! Look what you made me do, I guess!”
