So in the last episode, we went to the racetrack to see the Edgewater Estate horses run in the derby and I received news that my father fell ill with yellow fever.
Now look at the title-what did I tell you! I knew my father wasn’t going to last long-I wrote a paper on how Yellow Fever assisted the Confederate Soldiers in the Civil War as it devastated the northern troops. It quickly spread and was a brutal disease.
Now interesting-this chapter starts off with a warning:
This chapter contains scenes of implied sexual violence that may be upsetting to some players. Discretion is advised.
What does that mean? This sounds bad…
So my father is very sick-he is going to die in this episode, I just know it. Darn, I just found him and now I will lose him.
As my grandmother is talking to me my evil stepbrother, Mr. Marcastle comes in asking what is wrong. Now you have the choice to tell him the truth or keep it from him.
On one hand Mr. Marcastle, my stepbrother, has been pretty awful and plotting against me this whole entire time, he and his mother spreading lies and trying to sully my reputation. It would serve him right if I kept it from him.
BUT…even though he is horrid, my father did raise him and Mr. Marcastles loves my father.
Even though I want to be tough, I decide to tell him the truth. It is the right thing to do, however much he has hurt me-he deserves to know the man who was his father is dying.
By doing so it does give me a +Relationship.
Mr. Marcastle leaves to be alone and so does grandmother. As I enter my own contemplation all I can think is this stinks!
I lose my mother in the first chapter, finally meet me father and NOW he is dying. Ugh.
While I am commiserating Briar gives me a stack of love letters.
Apparetly my mother gave them to Briar to hold onto and give to me later when she felt the time was right. I don’t know why it took so long, but I am eager for them!
I of course want to read them-maybe something sweet about my parents or even useful information that can help me is in them?
But unfortunately, I do not have enough diamonds. I need to pause the game and return after I achieve seven more diamonds.
So, we will have to finish this another time.
