“Ta-da!” said Abby. “I present to you the new headquarters of the American Girls Club!”
“Um, Abby?” said Daphne. “This is your parents’ attic. Why did you bring us up here? What are you talking about?”
“Hi girls, what did I miss?” asked Kyoko as she arrived.
“Abby was just showing us her parents’ attic,” replied Ella. “Look at all this junk…how could we have a meeting here?”
“Well you didn’t let me finish!” exclaimed Abby. “Daphne, I told you earlier this week that our theme for this meeting would be Kit Kittredge. Well…do you understand why now?”
“Oh, I get it!” said Kyoko. “Kit had to move her bedroom to the attic!”
“And she had to move a bunch of stuff and clean it up to make it nice,” added Ella.
With building enthusiasm, Daphne chimed in, “She didn’t like it at first, but it ended up being perfect for her! It was her own special space!”
“Exactly!” said Abby, beaming at her friends. “Nobody really has a spot big enough spot to be a clubhouse, so we are going to work with what we have and make the most of it! And it’s going to be great!”
“I love that idea, Abby!” said Kyoko, with agreement from the other girls. “Let’s get to work!”
“There’s a lot of stuff up here, this is going to take some teamwork…”
“Umm…a lot of teamwork!”
“Hold on, Abby!”
“How are you doing down there, Ella?”
“There are lots of cobwebs, girls…”
“We’re getting there!”
“Willa! What you are you up to?” Abby asked her little sister, who had suddenly appeared in the attic.
“I brought you some flowers for your new club house!” said Willa happily.
“Aww, that’s so sweet…hang on, what are you wearing?” replied Abby.
“My work clothes, silly! Mom said it was dirty up here.”
“Work clothes? Those are way too big…hey, those are my overalls! Give me those!”
“Hehe, got to catch me first!” squealed Willa.
“Oh well…I’ll have my sisterly revenge later,” shrugged Abby as she let Willa escape. “Hey, it’s looking pretty good in here!”
“I brought over some pillows and lounge furniture,” said Daphne. “I think they will be perfect up here!”
“Move the poster a little to the left Daphne…there! Perfect!”
“We did it, ladies! The American Girls Club officially has a headquarters! I think Kit would be proud!”
