“Delaney!” Daphne shouted to her sister. “Come quick! She’s here!”
Delaney knew exactly what Daphne was talking about and ran quickly to the front steps of the house where the mail carrier had delivered a package.
Daphne was so excited that she plopped down right on the sidewalk and grabbed her package.
“Open it!” urged Delaney.
Daphne ripped into the package gleefully.
“I’d better help you,” said Delaney as she started ripping too.
The girls were momentarily speechless as the admired the new doll in the box.
“Melody is perfect!” exclaimed Daphne. “I’ve been waiting so long for her! I can’t wait to show the girls at the American Girls Club meeting this weekend!”
