I recently watched the new Annie movie online and I actually really liked it! I loved Cameron Diaz as Miss Hannigan, sure she isn't the greatest singer but I think she did pretty well and she played the role of Miss Hannigan perfectly. I think it was a great idea to make a modern version. My favorite parts of Annie were always the orphan scenes, and I just loved the foster kids in this movie. Mia, the baby, was of course my favorite. I wish we had gotten to see more of the foster kids and their personalities. SPOILER; I loved how Hannigan realized she was wrong and asked the other kids for help and saved Annie at the end. I think this is actually my favorite version of Annie.
Anyway, since the orphans were always my favorite characters, this story is based off of what happens to the other foster kids once Annie gets adopted by Will Stacks. It's in the point of view of Mia, the youngest foster sister. I'm not sure how old all of the kids were supposed to be, so this is how old I made them:
Pepper - 12 (almost 13; she says this in the movie)
Isabella - 11
Tessie - 10
Mia - 7 1/2 ( because the half matters at that age :P )
Also, I'm not sure if the actual movie takes place during summer vacation but for the story it's summer :)
I hope you like it! This is my first fanfiction so please don't be too mean!
I was happy for Annie, I really was, but I couldn't believe she was getting adopted by Will Stacks. The minute she told us she was going to live with him for a few weeks, I had a feeling she wasn't coming back here. But I guess moving in with Mr. Stacks was better than leaving us for a group home. When the inspector man was here, I overheard Miss Hannigan telling him that she didn't want to foster Annie anymore. Then when Annie came back from the "library," I heard Miss Hannigan telling her that she was going to a group home in a week. I don't know what a group home is, but I don't think we would get to see her if she was in one. At least with Mr. Stacks we can see her sometimes.
After Mr. Stacks announced to all of the reporters that he was adopting Annie, he invited Miss Hannigan and us to come back to his house to celebrate. Annie showed us around the house, and we had a lot of fun playing games and dancing. We played a really fun game of hide and seek because it was so big and there were so many places to hide! Mr. Stacks even bought a cake that said "Welcome Home Annie!" The cake was chocolate and it tasted really good! But seeing the cake made me a little upset, because I realized Annie was no longer going to be my sister.
When the party finally came to an end, we all had to say goodbye to Annie. Everyone hugged her, even Pepper. "I can't believe I'm saying this, but I think I'm actually going to miss you." she said. "And thanks for the iPhone."
Annie laughed, "Aww Pepper, I'm going to miss you too. And don't act like you didn't love having me as a sister, I know you did."
"What ever gets you through the night, kid."
Tessie and Isabella said their goodbyes to Annie, hugging her and saying how much they would miss her. "I'm sure you can all come over again tomorrow or the next day!" Annie said, "After all, it is summer!"
"I know but it won't be the same," said Tessie.
"Love you Annie, we'll see you soon." said Isabella.
I was petting Sandy when I heard Miss Hannigan say, "Come on guys, we have to go." Tessie, Isabella, and Pepper got ready to leave as I got up to hug Annie.
"I'm going to miss you so much Annie!"
"Not as much as I'm going to miss you, Mia." she said to me. "But don't worry, you can come over whenever you want!" She leaned in and whispered, "If Miss Hannigan doesn't let you, just wait until she's passed out on the couch and sneak out the window." I laughed.
"Okay, I guess so," I said. "I just wish we could still be sisters."
"Mia, we'll always be sisters. No matter what. That's never going to change, I love you."
We hugged again, before Tessie said "C'mon Mia, Miss Hannigan's waiting for us." Annie put a hand on my shoulder, and said, "you're gonna be okay." I gave her one last hug before I followed Tessie out.
So there's chapter 1! I'm going to get more into the backgrounds of Mia and the other kids and how they ended up in foster care soon. I hope you liked it :)
