The 30’s, Part Ten!!!!!!!!!!!! The Finale!

This entry is part 10 of 10 in the series The 30's
It is the FINALE?! WHAT?! Man, that went by pretty fast! It makes me soooooooo happy to see that you have liked this series so far! I am definitely planning on doing more in the future! I am going to do a Q&A with the cast for this one, so that should be fun!

Alright, before you get on to the story I had a little contest on this post. The 2 winners had to guess either Grace or Mckenna’s favorite season. If they were the first one to get it right I told them they would receive a shout out on this post! So the winners are:

Anna and AGs in Alaska! It was funny because they were the first 2 comments!!! You guys did a great job! Grace’s favorite season is winter mostly because of holiday baking! I loved how you used Grace’s personality to determine that Anna! The same with AGs in Alaska! You used Mckenna’s personality to determine that she would probably favor summer, since there is no school (I actually didn’t even think of that, since I don’t get summer break)! Awesome job guys!

Check out Anna’s awesome doll blog HERE.

Check out AGs in Alaska’s awesome doll blog HERE.

I follow both of them, and I really enjoy their posts! In case you were interested here are the other doll’s favorite seasons:

  • In case you didn’t read the last post Saige’s favorite season is fall because she really likes fall colors.
  • Kit likes summer as well because she enjoy’s being active outside.
  • Raven likes spring because of the blossoming flowers. (Raven’s was probably the most obvious, that’s why I didn’t pick her for the contest.)
  • Caroline likes spring too because she likes spring cleaning for some weird reason and the slightly cool weather.

Now on to the story!

Here is the character list for THE FINALE:

  • Kit plays herself.
  • Lanie (my sister’s doll) plays Sterling Howard (A boarder at the Kittredge house, and son of Mrs. Howard).
  • Raven plays Ruthie.
  • Caroline plays Edward (A person who works at the newspaper office).
  • Mckenna plays Joan (A reporter for the Cincinnati Register newspaper).
  • Saige plays Mr. Gibson (The editor of the Cincinnati Register newspaper).

OH MAN! This is so exciting! Here is the story:

I took a deep breath. “Meet me down here, no later than 6 o’clock, in the morning. Be ready to leave.” I commanded Sterling.

He turned to face me, “Ok… to return the bracelet? But what about the article you have to write?”

“Just go to bed. You’ll see in the morning.”

The Next Morning…

I pounded down the stairs into the living room with a tote slung on my shoulder. “Good morning, Sterling!”

He was all ready and dressed. “Hi Kit. So… what are you going to do?”

“You’ll see,” I taunted grabbing the pearl bracelet off the table.

“Ugh,” Sterling grunted, “Can you please stop saying that?”

I dropped it in the tote. “Have patience.”

I slung the tote over my shoulder again.

“Aw, Kit!” he sighed moodily, “How long are you going to keep me in suspense?”

“You’ll see…” I stifled a laugh as I headed to the door.

“‘Oh, come on!”

A Little Later…

“What are we doing at the newspaper office?” Sterling pestered, “I thought we were going to the jewelry store!”

Joan and Edward were dead ahead. Perfect, I said to myself.

I rushed up to them,”Joan, Edward, hurry! Follow me!”

They looked up from the typewriter on Edward’s desk.

Edward stuttered,”Wait… What? Kit? What are you… why are you…”

I was already stomping off towards Mr. Gibson’s office.

“Kit wait!” I heard Joan behind me, “Don’t go in there!”

“Kit! What are we doing?!” Sterling pleaded.

“Kit! Mr. Gibson is having a meeting with someone.” Edward yelled.

I blocked them all out and threw open the door to Mr. Gibson’s office. “Mr. Gibson! I need to talk to you.”

Mr. Gibson turned his head and looked at me with a sort of disgusted curiosity. Someone was standing at his desk crying, “Please Mr. Gibson! Please don’t publish it!”

She looked up. It was Ruthie. She wiped her eyes, “Kit?” She must have been trying to get Mr. Gibson to stop the production of her robbery story. She didn’t even tell me the night before that she was worried about that. Well, now she was going see what I would do.

I strolled over and slammed my fist on Mr. Gibson’s desk. “Mr. Gibson! Ruthie did something wrong, something very wrong, but last night she showed me how grievingly sorry she was. The police pushed into her house. Her family was fined a huge amount of money for her crime. Therefore, I see no reason to humiliate her any further!” I caught my breath, “Which is why I refuse, and will NOT be delivering a story about this for your paper!”

“Oh Kit, thank you!” Ruthie hugged me.

Joan and Edward gasped at my stand up.

Sterling just chortled, “Oh! That’s why we’re here!”

Mr. Gibson stared at me, obviously shocked. Then… he started laughing.

He stood up, “Aww, that’s fine,” he sighed sarcastically,”I knew a kid couldn’t manage this.”

I narrowed my eyes, It’s not that I couldn’t, it’s that I wouldn’t.

“This is exactly the reason I had Joan working on this case too,” he smiled.

I thought he might bring that up. That’s why I had brought Joan and Edward in, so that they could see my conviction about this. I still wasn’t sure what she would do, though. I was scared.

Everyone stared at Joan, and you could tell, she was shaking in her boots. Fear was in her eyes.

She walked up slowly, breathing deeply. There was an awkward silence.

Her voice was a little shaky when she started to speak, “Well, I… I… Mr… Mr. Gibson, I cannot write this story. Kit is right. This girl needs no further punishment.”

Ruthie and I grinned.

“Thank you, Joan.” Ruthie’s eyes gleamed thankfully.

Mr. Gibson was at a lost for words, “Wha… uh… how… you… you…”

“You’re fired!” He bellowed at Joan. I frowned. I had no idea it would come to this!

Joan suddenly got a boost of self esteem, “Thank you sir! It will be a relief to not work for you anymore!” She wiped her brow.

Ruthie darted over to hug Joan. “Oh, thank you so so much!”

Astonished, Mr. Gibson swerved to me, exasperated. “You,” he said, “you’re hired. I’m prepared to offer you a large sum of money for the best work you can give me on this case.” He was desperate.

In the 30’s, “I’m prepared to offer you a large sum of money” wasn’t heard often, but that wasn’t going to tempt me in a heartbeat. My anger grew until I thought I would absolutely blow up.

Suddenly Edward stepped in for me, “Hey! Don’t bribe the kid!” He shouted angrily.

Mr. Gibson was appalled, “Don’t you dare raise you’re voice to me, Edward!”

“I’m sorry Sir,” he explained, “but I believe this time it was necessary! I’m with them! I will in no way help with this story! I wouldn’t touch it for a second!”

Mr. Gibson threw his arms in the air. “That’s it!!! You’re fired! All of you! Get out of my office!”

We all raised our heads proudly and walked out.

Steaming, Mr. Gibson watched us as we walked out, but one remained behind.

“What do you want?!” He yapped at Sterling.

“Well Sir,” Sterling began respectfully,”I think people would like you a lot better if you watched your attitude a bit more.” With that he walked out.

Once outside Mr. Gibson’s office, we all cheered.

Sterling did a bunch of cartwheels for joy.

We all cheered some more, even Joan and Edward who had just lost their jobs, seemed very happy.

I shifted myself to Joan, “Oh Joan, I’m so sorry for lying to you, and I’m so sorry you lost your job!”

“It’s ok Kit, everything is good now,” she smiled sweetly. I believed she was right.

Ruthie hugged me again, “Thank you Kit, you really are the best friend in the whole world.”

After all that, Sterling, Ruthie and I walked together away from the Cincinnati Register Newspaper office. I doubted if I would ever be delivering another article there again, but I wasn’t worried. I was still an aspiring writer and reporter. I would find some other paper to write for.

Out of the blue, Ruthie spoke up, “Kit, have you returned the pearl bracelet yet?”

“No actually,” I remembered tapping the bag under my arm, “it’s in this tote.”

“Oh good!” She smiled, “Can I give it to Betty? I think I’m ready now, besides, it’s my responsibility.”

I placed my hand on her shoulder. “That sounds like a good idea,” I beamed. “Let’s go right now.”

Sterling hopped down from some rocks he had been climbing, “Man, this has been a tough adventure.”

“Yeah,” Ruthie agreed letting out a large exhale.

I placed a hand on each of their shoulders.”Well,” I contemplated aloud, “sometimes life is hard… especially right now, in the 30’s, but I am very thankful for good friends to get me through it. ”

We all smiled.

THE END!
