The Girl in the Green Dress: Meeting Jamie

The Girl in the Green Dress is a little story I made up. I had painted the girl a long time ago and the point of it is you can't see her face. Ever. I made sure of it. The story isn't supposed to be a happy one either. The girl, Sky, comes from a very neglectful family. Is there a plot to the story? Yes, eventually, you will see it.

Another thing about this story is that this is all made on my cellphone. The quality of the pictures aren't great but it was fun to make on my phone. It gives me the option to work on it anywhere.

So what you are about to read it the rough version of my story. It isn't edited...and I already see a couple of things I have to fix but I will do that later. This story probably isn't the best to read to a child...That's strictly up to you.

Sky was a quiet little girl whose parents were too busy to spend time with her. Almost everyday, they left her home along, telling her to stay inside so no one would see her.

One day, Sky found a sewing kit in the hallway closet and hid it in her room so her parents would find it. When they left for work, she rummaged through the clothes that didn't fit her, and decided to make her very own friend...her very first friend...

When she finished, Sky picked up the doll with her sore hands and stared at the limp imperfect doll. The stitches all around her were uneven but it held together pretty well.

Sky smiled at her handy work and decided to give her new friend a name...Jamie.
