Sorry all, it’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to post. There are just so many things…I’m swamped.
So quick review: In this game you are the illegitimate daughter if the Earl of Edgewater, something you discover on your mother’s deathbed. You meet your father and he accepts you and wants to make you his legal heir, as your half-brother passed away.
You have an evil stepmother and conniving stepbrother, with a dim fiancé. They are plotting against you.
In the last episode your father and grandmother planned a garden party for you. You learned to dance properly, and was having a great time with Mr. Sinclaire. He asks you to play nine pins with him, but I had run out of enough diamonds to purchase the event. I had to wait until I had earned 30 diamonds.
So was it worth the wait? Let’s see?
So Mr. Sinclaire explains the game to you and we are ready to go:
How well you do depends on how close you paid attention to the rules of playing. I did really well and ended up winning the game!
Your grandmother interrupts you with the Duke’s entrance. After your grandmother’s big to-do about him I was expecting someone more…favorable. Most of these games give you multiple choices of who you want to be with-but the Duke is a total jerk!!!
He seems to like me a lot-which pleases my grandmother and father-but eeyuck! I don’t want him.
Miss Parsons and I talk about it after and she asks me to join her for a walk but I decline. One, I have no more diamonds to purchase that option, and two-I do need to do my duty and be a good hostess. I mean how would it look if I walked out on a party given in my honor?
Later Mr. Sinclaire asks me to dance and I blow him away with my prowess, thanks to Miss Parsons and her amazing teaching skills! (And my shoes).
I am definitely liking Mr. Sinclaire the most. I think he is rather fun. 🙂
Afterwards my father surprises me with the fact that he has made me his official legal heir I will be going off to London to have a season, (and hook a man).
Will it be a success? Or a flop? Tune in next time to find out!
