Anne of Green Gables
By Lucy Maud Montgomery
Ultra-Condensed by Samuel Stoddard

(Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert send for an orphan boy to help out at Green Gables.)
Anne Shirley: I'm here.

Marilla Cuthbert: Anne Shirley, you are not a boy. Go back to the orphanage.

Anne Shirley: If I work really hard, stay out of trouble, enrich your lives with my buoyant spirit, rescue you from the doldrums of your pragmatic ways, and touch the hearts of the townsfolk...then can I stay?

Marilla Cuthbert:Well, ok.

(Anne does all these things except stay out of trouble.)
