I cried for days. My dad swam the lake to search for Cherry, but it was useless. She was gone. My friend felt terrible for the accident. It was difficult because I always thought that that toy would someday reside on my bookshelf, but I had to give that dream up. Until...
I found this pillow at a garage sale last week. I never thought I would ever find the exact fabric.
And here she is on my bookshelf, right beside my Ruby Slippers. Happily Ever After!
