The ladies are still getting ready for the White Christmas scene.
Song: Okay. I just need a minute. Whew! This was so much work. Hanging up everything and reorganizing has been something else.
Waverly: I know! I have been having so much fun. We really did a good job. But let me set this box down so my arms don't fall off.
Waverly: So I was thinking we could possibly do a few more things with this room.
Taren: It looks nice, but we need to slow down and rethink those cards. I think we should make sure only the best looking ones go up. Maybe ones that fit the theme. We don't want to mess up the look of the room.
Song (to Waverly): You know what? We need to figure out what else we can use. We're going to be here for a while. I hope they bring in food and drink.
Waverly: Oh! That would be perfect. We can sing songs too while we sit here. We can practice posing. We can find so many fun things to do while we pass the time between shoots.
Song: Uhuh... That sounds like fun.
Waverly: Maybe we can even ask about making new cards. We could make a gingerbread house. I love those. So pretty and colorful. I'm so excited.
Waverly looks down for a second, like she is gathering her thoughts and then she responds to Taren.
Song's eyes are big as she watches in awe how very nicely Waverly managed to tell Taren about herself. Taren sits silent for a few minutes before she stands up to talk to Waverly.
Taren: You are so right, Waverly. I have been horrible and bossy. I shouldn't have put you down. I guess I let my prior situation make me controlling and just a little crazy. I was a cheerleader sitting in a warehouse, unable to even be seen. I wasn't even hand selected for this home, like you were. I was just randomly grabbed from a shelf. I was lucky to be placed in this loving home too. But I guess I was so afraid of not getting a life, I let trying to be perfect consume me to the point of being just plain rude. I am so sorry. Can you forgive me? Please?
Waverly: Sure. Let's just start over.
Taren has tears in her eyes as she leans in and gives Waverly a big hug.
After they hug, Waverly has a seat.
Taren (laughing): That's sounds good. Let's not forget about the drink too. I'll bet we can have some fun getting a little tipsy together.
Dallas: Sorry to interrupt, Ladies. I do have something to tell you, but first, can I have some food and drink too when it gets here? Photography is hard work.
Waverly: Of course you can. The more the merrier.
Dallas: Great! I'm looking forward to it. Spending time with you all. Getting to know you.
Song: Dallas, I don't mean to interrupt you now. But what did you really come to tell us?
Dallas: Oh, yes. She is on her way. Yes. Your foursome is about to be complete. But I'm not going to tell you. I'll let you be surprised. (Turns his head to look) Here she comes now. I had better get back behind the camera.
Dallas goes back to his photographer duties.
All the ladies heads turn and they are very surprised.
Waverly: O! M! G!
Leera: Hi! I'm sorry I'm a little late. I'm Leera and I am number four. This room looks great. It's so pretty.
Taren: You're the designer, right?
Leera: Yes, I am. I know the group was supposed to be only unassigned ladies, but since I have designed the clothes for the scene, I was able to get a spot. I am so going to enjoy modeling with you.
Song: Welcome! We're looking forward to seeing what we get to wear.
Leera: Cool. The finishing touches are being put on a few items, but we can start getting into the first set of clothes. So, please follow me and you can introduce yourselves and tell me all about you.
Well, I guess the ladies are off getting changed. We'll see them again soon. I'm so proud of Waverly and I'm glad Taren is going to work on doing better. I thought I was going to have to replace her for a minute there.
Stay warm. ~ Jaye
