Someday, My Frankie Will Come

CHAPTER 0: SETTING THE STAGE

It was autumn and that meant one thing for the kids. "Frieda's making an apple pie!" Linus explained to Franklin as they talked at the brick wall one Saturday. "Eudora and I are gonna pick apples to help her. So are Ed, his crew and Rebecca. Wanna triple date with us?"

Franklin jumped in shock. "Triple date?" he asked.

"Why not?" Linus responded.

Franklin chuckled anxiously as he regained composure. "I'm just shocked. Of course I'll join you guys, Linus."

"Great," Linus smiled, "see you at Ace's Orchard in an hour."

"TODAY?! Oh good grief."

Over at Peppermint Patty's house, she and Franco were spending time with Polly and Yasmine. Peppermint Patty was telling fairy tales to the girls, which they enjoyed. "And Snow White took the apple and took one big bite into it. And THUMP! She fell fast asleep instantly. And only true love's kiss could wake her up!" Peppermint Patty read aloud. Polly burst into tears.

"Oh guter Kummer." Franco sighed as they heard a knock at the door.

"Ooh, I think it's the evil stepmother!" Yasmine teased as Peppermint Patty went to answer the door.

"Nope; just Franklin." Peppermint Patty explained, letting him in.

Franco smiled as he greeted his friend. "What's on your mind?"

"Well, me, Marcie, Linus, Eudora, Ed and Rebecca are triple dating in less than an hour," Franklin explained. "it's at Ace's Orchard and it's to help collect apples for Frieda's apple pie."

"You're telling me why?" Peppermint Patty asked, raising a curious eyebrow.

Franklin shrugged his shoulders. "Just so you know."

Peppermint Patty smiled. "Thanks for the heads up."

"Not a problem." Franklin smiled back as he left the house.

The tomboy smiled as she was left in the comfort of her boyfriend and stepsisters. "Now where was I? Oh yeah, and only true love's kiss could wake her up! The Seven Dwarfs were so distraught. They put Snow White in a glass coffin covered in flowers, waiting for her true love to arrive."
