Aunt Georgie’s wedding dress had finally come. It was a beautiful creamy white silk dress with blue violets embroidered along the hem. A silver-blue cape came with the dress, along with a fashionable bonnet. Needless to say everyone was excited. The whole house had been turned upside down in preparing for the wedding, which was to be in a fortnight.
Georgianna stood in her room with three servant girls working on her dress. Liza came in the room, “Auntie your gloves!” She said holding them aloof, showing that they had seen better days.
“Oh dear, what are we to do?” was the worried reply.
Lizzy came to the rescue. “Don’t worry Bekah and I will go and buy a new pair.”
So out the two went on the quest of the gloves. Meanwhile Liza helped her Aunt out of the mostly finished dress. Liza noticed her Aunt looking a little stressed,
“Aunt dear maybe we should have a small bite to eat?’’
Aunt Georgie smiled, “Yes that is a good idea.” The two women walked down into the kitchen together.
As they ate, they chatted about weddings.
Liza laughed and remarked, “It’s a good thing this only once!”
“I too will be relived when it’s over.” Georgianna sighed.
“When you’re happily married?” Liza asked slyly.
Aunt Georgianna blushed slightly, making Liza laugh fondly.
The front door opened, and Lizzy and Bekah came smiling. They showed off the gloves, which were pronounced perfect.
“Now the only things left to do are: Have the last adjustments on the dress finished.” Liza stopped and asked Lizzy when that would be done.
“Tonight I hope.”
“Good,” Liza continued checking off things on her fingers, “the gloved are here, oh and the trunks!”
“Almost done!” Bekah called from the other room.
“I think that’s all Aunt.”
“Thank you so much girls, I don’t know what I’d do without you!” And they each got a kiss on the cheek.
