Good Times in Pride and Prejudices
Thank you for choosing my little story!
This is my fourth installment in my Good Times Series. Hopefully, it won't
be too confusing without having read the other three. I tried to explain
stuff as best I could. Some of the major issues addressed in previous
stories won't be here.there just isn't time.
"Come, dear Jane let us take a walk. The fresh air will do you good."
Jane smiled sweetly at her sister.
"Yes, Lizzy, I think you are right." The two Bennet sisters began to
walk through town, discussing the up coming Neitherfield Ball, Mr. Wickham,
Mr. Darcy and, of course, amiable Mr. Bingley. As they headed toward
Meryton, they spotted an odd sight, that of a girl, strangely clothed,
lying on the grass.
"Oh my goodness." Jane exclaimed and the two rushed towards the girl.
They knelt to her, and Lizzy checked her breathing. At that point, the
girl's eyes fluttered open. She looked dazed at Elizabeth and Jane.
"Jesus! Where the hell am I?" the girl cried, bolting up, and
startling the ladies with her rashness.
"You are laying in between the towns of Hertfordshire and Meryton."
Elizabeth answered a little shocked.
"Hertfordshire and Meryton?" the girl repeated, "England?"
"Yes." Elizabeth answered the peculiar question with a chuckle. "I am
too assume that you are not from here?" she said, referring to the girl's
"No, no. I'm from America. America was discovered at this point,
correct?" Elizabeth and Jane exchanged glances.
"Yes. It was discovered quite a while ago."
"What year is it?"
"1798." the girls were becoming increasingly confused.
"1798.so the Revolutionary War is over?"
"Yes, it has been over for at least a decade."
"Oh good." The girl, began to brush herself off, and then stood up.
"May I inquire your name?" Elizabeth asked cautiously.
"Allison." she thought for a second, "Allison Eadig."
"Well, Miss. Eadig, may I present my sister Jane Bennet, and myself
Elizabeth Bennet." They curtsied and a light of recognition hit Allison's
"It's nice to meet you." Allison said, and curtsied likewise.
"You're, uh, probably wondering why I was sleeping on the ground."
"It was a question that had entered my mind, yes." Elizabeth said
with a chuckle. Allison was thinking of an answer to give them.
"I don't really know." She answered finally. "Well, I do know, but I
don't think it will make a whole lot of since to you at this point."
"Where is your home?" Jane asked.
"Well, for all intensive purposes, in America." Allison picked up her
leather bag from the ground, "Oh shoot! My new Guess? bag is all dirty."
She frowned, and the girls, obviously confused by this, looked at each
"Where are you staying of late?" Jane persisted.
"I don't know." Allison shrugged. "I have a about 100 dollars on me.
Could that buy me a room in town?"
"Yes, it could buy you quite a bit." Elizabeth said, and then on
further thought, "How did you come to be in England, if you are from
"It's a question that will take a bit of time, and an ability to
believe and to realize that life isn't always what it seems to answer."
"We have nothing but time, on our trip into Meryton. And as for your
second request, I can only hope that my sister and I have enough of an open
mind to comply to your wishes. Perhaps you would like to accompany us and
answer our questions." Allison shrugged.
"Why the hell not." She began to walk with the two sisters. "Well,
you see it begins like this. The world is made up of portals into other
dimensions." she noticed the looks of utter confusion on the girls' faces.
"I'm guessing that you do not know a whole lot about physics?"
"No, I cannot say that physics is a regular subject in our
"Well, I know it sounds crazy, but you're going to have to believe
me. I come from another dimension and time. Which, as you can see by my
clothing, speech and dialog, is quite unlike this one. Well, it is like
this one because we are both from Earth. But I come from America in 2002."
"2002!" Jane and Elizabeth exclaimed. They were in disbelief, but it
was hard to not trust what she was saying, considering her fashion and
mannerisms, however, the idea that someone could time travel was a little
bit too fictitious for either to believe.
"I would go into detail, but I'm afraid that I have to ask you a
"Oh yes." Elizabeth said after the shock of what Miss. Eadig had just
"I feel a little.out of place in these cloths. I would really
appreciate it if you could direct me to a place where I could get a more
suitable dress." The sisters agreed, still a little dazed by this stranger.
"I would also appreciate it, if you didn't tell anyone else what I just
told you. I think I'm going to have to build trust slowly here." Again,
they agreed, and Miss. Eadig was very profuse in her thanks.
