Yes, I know, I sucketh much

I had no idea I would be nearly 7 months between posts. What can I say but this story title should not apply to waiting for posts…

Life has been busy. This was my son’s last season to march drum corps and I had no clue how much his life would take over mine. I found myself following his adventure on his Instagram page and waiting daily for texts from him. I even got a couple of surprise phone calls. They were good phone calls with great news. He ended up winning his part of solo and ensemble competition on the trumpet and his corps, the Concord Blue Devils won their 18th world championship 3 days later. What a way to go out. We took our vacation to watch him perform that last week and I sobbed when their final show was over. My dear husband just held me and let me get it all out. I was fine afterwards and just so proud of my son when the scores were finally announced. Such joy on his face and in my heart.

All that to say here is the next 8 pages of my story. It’s completely unedited by anyone other than me, so expect a few typos!

  1. Glad to see you posting again, although your absence was certainly in a good cause. Congratulations on your son’s achievements!

    Some progress in this chapter. Anne & Elizabeth make an interesting pair. Darcy recognizing he may have been wrong about Jane–so that may be fixed up eventually. I’m wondering whether the investigation of Sir Lewis’s will will uncover any stumbling blocks to THE PLAN. (this is a non-cliffhanger cliffhanger. lol)

    Nosy Charlotte was to be expected–hopefully Lizzy’s answer will be enough to squelch unseemly curiosity at the parsonage.

    Looking forward to the next episode!

  2. It’s great to see a new update to this story. I hope that real life gives you more opportunities in the near future to post some more.

  3. I loved the unexpected entail & amp very intrigued by your Patience plot! But I don’t read stories unless they’re completed-too many abandon them :-/
    Looking forward to reading your other stories

  4. I just checked your site today and saw this new chapter! Sorry I did not look for it sooner. I look forward to seeing if all of the legalities that Lady Catherine talked about actually were put into place.

    All involved must practice “patience” indeed!

  5. Evidently, I found and bookmarked your blog last year, onaccountof Letters. I rediscovered it a few days ago and much enjoyed letters. I began Patience is a Virtue, and I truly hope your busy life allows you to return and finish that!
