I never really supposed I would, but so many of my loveliest dreams have come true all at once that perhaps this one will, too. Diana always laughed before she spoke.
It will be jolly to have somebody to play with. There are two kinds, you know. It just means vowing and promising solemnly.

Episodes include her play-time with her friends Diana, a calm girl named Jane Andrews and a good-natured but often hysterical girl called Ruby Gillis, and her run-ins with the unpleasant Pye sisters Gertie and Josie; and domestic mishaps such as dyeing her hair green while intending to dye it black, and accidentally getting Diana drunk by giving her what she thought was raspberry cordial but turned out to be currant wine.

She plans to teach at the Carmody school, the nearest school available, and return to Green Gables on weekends. In an act of friendship, Gilbert Blythe gives up his teaching position at the Avonlea School to work at the White Sands School instead, knowing that Anne wants to stay close to Marilla after Matthew's death.

Although conservative and austere, she is fond of Anne and has the glimmerings of a sense of humor.
