Yes, the end was bittersweet. I wish she had taken Alice and her little brother along with it can't be helped now. Anyways, I enjoyed reading this story. At first when I started reading it I thought you made some spelling mistakes but then it struck me that you were writing in the southern dialect. It was really interesting for me as I wasn't familiar with it but thanks to you, now I know about it.

Loved it. I so wanted Alice to join her in leaving the farm.

"Lord, this is sin."
"You can repent later."
That was outstanding. :)!

This just has me in giggles..
I love reading in the accents spoken, like I did w/ DirtySouthDrugWars, & some of ur others.- I just really love it.
Sorry for blowing up ur inbox if u ever chk it- i've discovered u recently & adore ur work!
I recokn Bella ain't got no need 'tall to be ashamed, fer there must be sum good 'slainin bout ol college educated Eddie. She'll make a right fine wife fer 'im, iffin' he's in the market, which i 'spect he is.

Huh, I hadn't realized that when Alice stayed back, when Edward came to get her that, that meant she was choosing her parents over Bella. If I would've understood that better, I wouldn't have been saying she needs to get Alice. Nope, she chose to stay . . . she can stay and deal with the consequences. I'm glad that her and Eddie found their happiness and that Bella is okay with all of it. I enjoyed this.

Good, she's healed. She finally said yes to him! Now, maybe Emmett can buy the land her family owns and work it himself. Her parents can take the money and go. Alice can stay though. I hope so.

Her mother is deathly ill, clearly, if she's coughing up blood in that day an age. She needs to go with Eddie and get herself healed. Then she needs to come back for the siblings. She's worthless right now. Her father may try and shoot the 'ranch hand' daughter of his . . . but, he won't as he needs her for the fields. I'm suddenly so happy this is such a short story . . . I don't think I could've read this as a full length story . . . I'm too wimpy for it. Goodness.

So, basically, his girls can never leave home as they aren't his daughters, they are ranch hands. Wow, what a dick. I really hope that Edward comes by quickly . . . I hope that Alice or her mom steps up. He has just beaten his daughter so badly that she has gone unconscious. I am sickened by this chapter. Not you, the chapter.

There is so much more to this . . . I just know there is. Perhaps, they are related? I just don't believe that they are engaged. Otherwise, why would he even as her Pa to court her. The whole town would hear about that, and when this woman shows up, words would be said. His reputation tarnished. Yes, there just has to be some sort of explanation.

Oh goodness . . . she's gone too far to turn back now . . . she loves him and she's given herself to him. What will happen when she finally gets the nerve to ask him about the rumor. Yikes. And, I imagine that having sex back then, most definitely leads to pregnancy. Double YIKES!
