New Chapter of Rilla

New chapter of Rilla-my-Rilla. Get out your hankies, girls!

Ingrid, I wrote and posted this before I remembered I hadn't sent it to you. Oh, well. Just think of it as a surprise?

  1. Like I said in the review, I knew this was going to happen, but it didn't make it any easier when it happened.

    I know this isn't related at all,but I sort of remember how at the beginning of Cecilia of Ingleside, Joy and Blythe had a sister named Emily (or am I confusing this with another ff?) Anyway, I think that it is interesting that the sister that was written out's name started with the same letter of the alphabet as the sister they shall never meet.

    Anyway, I guess that I'm just letting my mind wander a little too much.

    I think her name was Diana? I took her out because all the name repetitions were so confusing!

    Glad you liked the chapter.


  3. Oh, okay. I'm sure you're right. I get names confused so often. Anyway, the story worked great without her. It was asmart move.

    I DID really like the chapter. I can't wait to read about the aftermath and how Nan feels when she sees a healthy, happy Gilbert Ford.

    That was so sad! I am so glad Anne was able to talk about Joy with Nan. Nan is taking everything so well, but like Adrienne, I wonder if it will be hard for her and Jerry to see little Gilly without thinking of their own lost Elaine since they were so close in age.

    Was there a sentence you wanted to write at the end of the paragraph describing how Jerry was doing after the loss? It looks like you were planning on continuing an idea.

    Wonderful story Ruby. I truly love your writing.

    don't worry about it Ruby, but why was the baby buried in the Methodist graveyard? good job on everything else though. :)



  6. Miss Cornelia will have a lot to say about that LOL!


  7. geeruby Says:

    HAHAHA she sure will! I bet Rev. Meredith would, too.

    Maybe the Presbytarian graveyard was full up?


  8. iffie21 Says:

    Hahah, yes, I am sure that the Presbyterian graveyard was all full--- too many presbyterians were dying off so everyone decided to become methodists.


  9. iffie21 Says:

    well that isn't as bad as the last one...I think. sorry adrienne


  10. It's gone now. Thankfully, I have time at work today to checks things. I wonder why these random comments always are made on poor Ruby's posts?
