This is her story...
THE BEST NIGHT OF MY LIFE
I opened my eyes, sat up and looked around. It was the middle of the night. I glanced to my right and nearly screamed. There, standing in front of me was my Australian Girl Doll, Emily. (That’s my name too, Emily.) “Sh” Emily whispered. I nodded; it was all I could do to stop myself screaming. “I come alive at night, so do all your toys. But only after you and your family go to sleep. But tonight’s different.” Emily explained, “Now wish that you were in Australia, Ok?”
“Ok” I whispered, and did what she said.
Nearly as soon as I had wished to go to Australia, everything around us began to change. Then 10 seconds later we were standing in front of a cattle station. “Where are we?” I asked no one in particular.
“ We’re right in front of my house,” Emily answered. I gulped,
“How did we get here?” I asked.
“You wished to go to Australia, so here you are,” Emily said. I stared at her, gobsmacked. “Come on” Emily urged, pulling me towards her house. Very soon we were at the front door. Emily turned the handle and we went inside.
Emily went into the lounge room and beckoned me to follow. Inside a lady was standing in front of a sofa. “ Mum, this is my friend, Emily. Em, this is my mum,” Emily stated.
“Hi,” I said.
“Come on,” Emily said and she went upstairs, I followed her. “Ok,” Emily
sighed,” I saw a possum in our garden; it looked like it was stuck in a bush. We need to help it.” “Ok, but how did you get here before we did?” I asked.
“I came here earlier on, when you were asleep,” Emily answered. We both ran downstairs and into Emily’s garden.
“Come with me and be quiet, “ Emily told me. I nodded. We walked for about 2 more minutes before we came to a huge bush. Emily carefully pushed the branches away to reveal an adorable baby possum caught up in all the leaves. I carefully untangled the possum and cradled it in my arms. “Come on let’s go back to my house,” Emily whispered. So we went up to Emily’s house. “MUM! Look at what we found!” Emily called. Mrs. Flynn appeared at the door. “Oh my goodness!” she cried and took the baby possum from me. We followed her to the kitchen, where she fed the baby possum some milk.
“Shall we name it?” Emily asked me. “Ok. How about Star?” I asked.
“Star sounds great, “ Emily replied.
“You can have Star if you like,” Mrs. Flynn told me. “Ok, but what will my parents say?” I asked. “We can keep her here and you can come and visit her every night,” Emily suggested. “Ok,” I replied. Finally Emily took me home. From that night on I always went to see Star, with Emily.
