So in the last episode, we had the sewing circle which I rocked. I love embroidery.
Miss Eliza Parsons also taught me the pianoforte, making it my newest accomplishment.
In this episode we are going to have a garden party in my honor, how will it turn out?!!
So it is exciting, a party for me and the Duke is coming, that is just one step below Prince Regent!
Grandmother offers me a very fancy dress to wear, but it costs 25 diamonds.
In the other games I have played on Choices I have never purchased clothes as I don’t see the point, but I decided to in this-I want the full experience for the blog.
There will be dancing at the Garden Party and I am very worried as I don’t know how to dance! I was never taught that in the village I grew up in.
I decided to take up Miss Parson’s offer to teach me a Boulanger.
But to get the lessons I had to buy some more diamonds as I had used mine up. In doing so I acquired the dancing shoes!
At the garden party things are going well. I befriend Mr. Woods the butler, (who my maid Briar is interested in) as I know he will be a good ally.
Oh yes. my stepmother is awful.
Luckily my father loves me and defends me from her. He introduces me to Mr. Sinclaire-you remember him.
You have a conversation with him, and it is up to you if you want to go the Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy route, be mean and reject him, or flirt. I choose the Elizabeth and Darcy route as I like Mr. Sinclaire. He’s not as noble as the others and I can relate with my birth.
And in case you were wondering, Mr. Sinclaire is Mr. Darcy.
I also discover that Mr. Sinclaire really appreciates my father, as he helped them when Mr. Sinclaire took over Ledford Park, his estate. After we talk for a while, he invites me to a game of nine pins. As I was out of money and did not want to purchase more diamonds, I decided to wait until I had earned enough diamonds to play with Mr. Sinclaire.
