Sybil's Weekend Wonder-Stories.... "WHAT MARY-JONELLE HAD TO HEAR!"...

....Rex was selected by the other pets to break the news to Mary-Jonelle at the next tea party. It was their usual Friday afternoon get-together, so it seemed all very spontaneous, but the animals had decided that they were going to let her have it! ...that things really had gone too, too far! And so, as Rex made the usual announcements about theatre outings, potential ski-weekends, bake sale dates, and flower arranging classes, everyone but Mary-Jonelle tensed up for what was coming next... What would she say? What would she DO?...Would she run to her parents and tattle on all of them?? Rex paused after a particularly funny little anecdote about jonquils which brought an appreciative chuckle from everyone including Mary-Jonelle, and then he began..... Later on, as she dried her tears in her fine linen napkin, she realized they were all correct about the situation, and that she needed to know the truth. And all of her animal friends were very relieved that she had taken it so well. Both Mittens and Mrs. Whiskers agreed that she was quite mature for a 5 year old, and Tum-Wiggle complimented her on how articulate she was for a human. At that point, Mary-Jonelle sat up straight in her chair and offered to pour another round of tea for the group as the family butler came in to see if everything was alright. He noticed that little Miss Mary-Jonelle might have been crying and asked if he could do anything, but she smiled with great composure, and dismissed him lightly with a wave of her tiny hand and a gracious, "Thank you, no, Mr. Carruthers!"....and that was that. Rex was very proud of her..... and everyone commented on how tasty the butter-biscuits were...
