#43 I, Isabel Scheherazade, work my way up to telling about the court caper.
None of it changes the fact that I need to get to court, but it’s slowly changing ME. Each day I feel worse and worse about going behind Mimi and Pop’s back as I plan the Court Caper. (Olivia says to call it a “caper” so we don’t scare ourselves out of doing it. I’m not sure how this helps, but we’re sure doing it; so maybe she’s right.)
As for me feeling guilty, Olivia has an answer for that too. She says, “Sometimes a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do.”
Finally the Court Caper Day arrives. Here’s what happened.
I’ll break it into parts. Part One is first. (See? Already I’m delaying the telling of this story. Of course Part One is first. If I were the kind of kid who says “DUH!” I’d say it now. But I’m not. 🙂 )
