The one and only true Rhobin comes up with some awesome topics. Have you ever had a secondary character take-over the story? Well, yep! Being a fair-minded sort of gal, I’m maybe too inclined to let everyone have a say.
And then look what happens…
Mariah’s Marriage, e-pub, MuseItUp 2013
Tobias, Earl of Mellon is giving us an advance picture of his younger sister, Daisy:
“She’s a minx, I’m afraid, John. Not that that is very different from the behaviour of many young ladies at her stage in life.” He shuddered. “God help any man who got Daisy out of duty.”
Then we see the young lady herself in the Fox morning room:
“Actually it’s Lady Daisy, being the daughter of an earl, but as I’m certain we’re going to be excellent friends, I insist you call me Daisy.” The girl rushed the words out and Mariah was not surprised when her mama intervened.
“Katerina Grizelda Anne Di Torres are the baptismal names available to my daughter, Miss Fox, but she chooses to be known by a name that she overheard in the pantry.” The countess uttered the words in sharp staccato…
Daisy gives us an opinion:
“I think this must be the man who was supposed to be escorting you yesterday, Miss Fox,” Lady Daisy said. “I recognise him from the earl’s description: too old, too fat, and too stupid.”
HOWEVER, this is Mariah’s Story, so she (well, me of course, but you get the point) fights back:
“I understand the nature of dependency only too well, Lady Daisy,” Mariah said. “I am also terrifyingly well-educated and sadly able to recognise the mendacious nature of your remarks,” she added without heat, before turning and walking away from them.
And yes, Daisy Mellon would not go away. You’ll be able to discover whether she gets her own way early next year when MuseItUp bring out her story. DAISY’S DILEMMA.
