Rocky

She had called him on her way over and he hadn't sounded at all pleased. He had been abrupt and tried to dissuade her from going to his workplace but she insisted. And here she was now, waiting for him. Her heart began to pound when she saw him coming towards her. She stood up …

Castlemore Manor

I am sitting on a bench on the immaculate grounds of Castlemore Manor, reading a book. I glanced up from its pages when my mind became occupied with memories of the place I once called home where I lived with my dear uncle and his family before he died and I was sent to Lowood.  …

The Surprise Visit

It was late afternoon and she had come for a walk in the park after going home from work. She didn't bother to have dinner. She just wanted to come here and clear her mind. How she managed to get through with her work today, she had no idea. Most likely it was because she …

Adelaide in Danger

Adelaide watched as the mist spread across the field like a veil.  How strange it looked.  It was a bright, sunless morning.  The air was cool and comfortable--a perfect day for a walk with the amiable Mr. Philips.  A kindly gentleman with a very agreeable disposition made him the perfect suitor for her by her parent's …

The Meeting

Providence

"Miss Johnson, to what do I owe the pleasure of this unexpected visit?" Lucius Suchet asked, his brown eyes studied her as she stood in the doorway.  "I'm astonished that you remember me considering that you didn't so much as say a word to me last night." She ignored his remarks and marched over to …

The Suitor Calls

It was Friday evening.  Mr. Read was to call on her.  She felt a prickle of excitement at the thought of seeing him again.  The week had flown by quickly.  It seemed only a moment ago when she had surprised him in the library where he was composing a note which he gave to her.   …
