*-Thank you to Sarah for beta reading.
She is amiable, strong, loving, never without a kind word, even to those whom she dislikes.
Anna Smith is the woman I want to marry.
But she is with another.
Her beautiful blue eyes sparkle at the mention of his name; their eyes never leave each other when they are in the same room.
He walks with a cane; she deserves a man who is not beset by physical deficiencies.
John Bates, valet to his lordship, sits down on the other side of Anna. He takes her hand in his under the table, they don’t speak to each other, but their eyes speak volumes.
He is far too old for her, Anna deserves a younger man. He has a criminal record; Anna deserves a man who has not been to jail. He has been married before; rumors are that his former wife is not a pleasant woman. I have no history to hold me back.
They are to be married; I wonder if Anna’s parents know of the man they will soon refer to as their son in law.
I was sent to the village by Mrs. Crawley, when I see Anna and Mr. Bates leaving the post office.
Her arm is wrapped around his, they are both smiling.
John Bates is a lucky man, I hope he appreciates her. If not, then I will be there and Anna Smith will love me as much as I love her.
