I checked the directions on my phone again to make sure I wasn’t missing something. I realized I had to accept the harsh truth.
I was hopelessly lost.
All I wanted to do was just get to my new house and finally get to start fresh with my new family. But apparently the Universe is against me and I can’t even get to a house without getting lost.
“Excuse me?”, I heard a voice above me say. “But are you lost?”, she said.
“Actually, yes. I am”, I replied reluctantly.
This mysterious girl helped me to my feet.
“Well than maybe I could help you!”, she suggested. “I’ve been living around here for almost a year now, so I know my way around! My name is Brooklyn, by the way!”
“I’m Forest. And it’s fine, I wouldn’t want to inconvenience you.” I said. Even though I really did need her help, I try not to be a nuisance to people.
“I insist!”, Brooklyn pushed on. “Plus, this could get me out of having to clean my room! Please, just read me the address, and I’ll help you get there!”
“Okay, I need to get to 1234 Julia Street*.”
“Wait…” Brooklyn pondered.
“OHMYGOSH!!”, she shouted. “You’re YOU!!”
“Um w-what?”, I stuttered.
“You’re Forest. Like Forest! Oh Riley is going to be so jealous! She wanted to be the first to meet you!”, Brooklyn continued.
“Excuse me, but what are you talking about?” I questioned. My mind was whirring so fast, what is she talking about? My hands were starting to sweat, she was kinda freaking me out.
“That address you just read, is MY house!! You’re the new foster girl that’s going to be living with us now! You’re our new sister! We gotta get you home, and fast! Maisy is totally going to freak!”, she spilled. Ohhh. I’m moving in with her? I guess this could go well. She seems a bit much but I think I can manage.
“Uh.. oh um.. o-okay”, was all I managed to get out before she grabbed my arm and swept us away to my new home.
Why won’t anyone cooperate! All I want is a clean house for our new sister, and after almost an hour of Lilah “cleaning” her room, I come back to a possibly even messier room!
“What in the world have you been doing?!” I asked. “And turn off that music, please!”
“Don’t you DARE diss the Wicked Soundtrack!!! I should be able to dance to ‘Popular’ all I want!! IT IS AN AMAZING WORK OF ART”, Lilah screamed.
“I’m sure it is, but not if it distracts you so much that you’re room got messier instead of cleaner, when our new sister is coming any time now!”
All of a sudden London showed up from who-knows-where. “Lilah has a point.”, she said. “Why should we have to clean our rooms if this girl is going to see the true messes that we really are in like a day anyways?!”
“You don’t understand! First impressions are IMPORTANT!” Do my sisters really understand nothing?
“You can’t expect London to understand.” Aubrey said. Where do all my sisters keep showing up from? “She is a redhead, afterall.”
“Um, so are both of us.. “, I replied.
“Sure, but I’m the only redhead here who’s a QUEEN”, Aubrey shrieked.
“Okay, fine.”, I gave in. “I’ll give you guys a compromise. If y’all promise to not make this mess any worse than it already is, then I won’t force you to clean anymore today. And maybe just sitting in this mess while motivate you to clean anyways?”
“Yeah, fat chance with that last part; but I’m totally up for that plan.”, London said.
“I’m kind of worried about Aubrey though, she could cause like serious damage and disaster if left unattended.”, Lilah added.
“Well since you girls won’t be cleaning, you can spend this time having Aubrey under constant supervision!”, I suggested, getting several annoyed grumbles from my sisters.
“I’m not quite sure what that word means, but it sounds fun!”, Aubrey exclaimed.
I left them to fend for themselves, while I went to check on Riley.
“Riley!”, I shouted. “Wake up! What in the world are you doing?!” I left her alone for 5 minutes, expecting her to make her bed and I came back to her SLEEPING?!
“sHHHHH”, she grumbled sleepily as she woke up. “I was gathering data for a post I’m working on!”
“What? It’s not you’re turn to write a post for like a month!”, what is she thinking? She’s just as crazy and clueless as my other sisters!
“It takes a while to get the data for this kinda thing. And since you’ve ruined that test run, excuse me while I go back to sleep please. Thanks”, does she expect me to accept this as an excuse for her being lazy?
“Why would you need to sleep, for a post?? Also I still need you to be cleaning! We need to make a good first impression on our new sister!”, I reminded her.
“I can’t tell you what my post is about!!”, she squeaked.
“Why not? I’ll be reading it eventually anyways.”
“Because the reading audience is literally right there! They can’t know yet!”
“Oh true, I forgot about that. They’re reading this right now!”
“HI JULIA’S FUTURE READERS”
“Anyways, none of this even matters. You have plenty of time to sleep at night, and you don’t even have to write that post for like a month. And who cares if we just had to go through a scripted breaking-of -the-fourth-wall, we still need to clean the house before Forest gets here!”, I explained.
“Can you just let me get changed out of my pajamas then? How do you think she’d react if she met me in my pjs!?!”, she whined.
“Okay fine. I know this is just you’re plot to get out of cleaning but I do need to check on our other sisters, so yeah just go make yourself look presentable, please.”
I heard her whisper “yes!” as I walked away.
“Okay we’re here!”, Brooklyn said. “Someone should open the door any second!”
“Wait, how many sisters do you have?!“, I asked. Normally I’m pretty shy and hardly talk to anyone, and now I’m going to be living with several people?! I’ll mix up their names and they’ll hate me!
“Only nine.”, she replied. NINE?!! Before I could reply the door was opened.
A redhead appeared, with three other girls behind her. “Thank goodness you’re home, Brooklyn! I need you to clean the….”, she trailed off as her jaw dropped.
“Maisy, this is Forest.”, Brooklyn explain. Welp, I guess I need to say something now.
This might get continued later?? I’m not quite sure. Probably not.
But yeah, I hope you all enjoyed seeing the story of how my dolls met their new sister, Forest! this took me wayyy too long to make and it’s not even that good.. And yes, she finally got a section in my Meet The Dollies page so be sure to check that out!

I finally bought a new doll! This is a doll I’ve been wanting for about 2 years now! And I finally got her!
So please welcome,
Truly Me #55, Forest!
Forest does not yet have a middle or last name.
Forest is probably about 14 years old and is definitely on the more emo side of things 😉
I chose her name because I loved the name, thought it was fitting for her, and is also the name of a Twenty One Pilots song that I love! don’t any of you dare make forest fic references in the comments
I’ll probably be adding her to my Meet the Dollies page soon! And I might do a photostory about her first time meeting my other dolls!
Reminder: I’m currently doing a giveaway! So if you haven’t already, check that out here!
Sorry for such the short post, I literally had 20 minutes of free time today to make this!
Do you have doll #55? Whats her name? If you could buy one doll, which would it be? Are you also lacking free time to do anything?? ‘Cause same!
