[TS4] A Little Piece of England
Thanks, Alex! I really hope to, I'm enjoying it so much.  Heart 

Round 1 ~ Stanton

This is only the highlights of the Stanton week, since it was a big update. Read the full story HERE.

William's POV
Grilled fruit? Before this venture, I had never once considered grilling fruit. Well, one wouldn't, would one? Fruit is meant to tastefully decorate a table, having been artfully arranged by a person with taste. It is for consumption, part of a delightful dessert to an exquisite dinner to which the sort of person who would actually entertain the idea of grilling fruit would not be invited.
My opinion on this matter is somewhat more positive than my dear Emily's. Having been raised in quite the household, she's not accustomed to these sorts of inconveniences.
That aside, this venture is a rather daring one, by any standards. To be completely fair, I did wholeheartedly agree with George when he suggested this scheme. After all, my own father made it more than clear that I was not welcome in the family, having gone to Cambridge instead of Oxford, like my forefathers. Stuffy lot.

Emily's POV
If my mother had ever told me I would one day be washing my clothes by hand and hanging them on a washing line in my own back garden, I would have delicately laughed and pretended not to have heard her. This would be so vulgar, in her eyes. The end of the world, as it were.

Whilst I am not entirely enamoured with my change of circumstances, I could not, in good conscience, stay in London with my parents' attitude dripping down her expensive (if faded) damask walls.

Of course, I recently had some fabulous news for William. The house of Stanton will continue for another generation and neither I nor William can contain our excitement. Of course, we will need to decorate a darling little nursery but as I have taken up my old hobby of photography again, I'm certain we shall do quite nicely.

William's POV
I remember my childhood nanny talking about the importance of reading to young children and I don't think you could start too early. Emily can't quite understand why I need to read to our unborn baby but to me, it is of the greatest importance. I want this child to understand the fundamentals of life at the earliest possible age.

Towards the latter stages of her pregnancy, Emily became more and more uncomfortable. I admit to being something of a secret expert at massages and soothed away the aches, pains, stresses and strains of her condition. Particularly as I feel more than a little responsible but equally helpless. She accomplishes so much every day she carries her precious cargo and I feel so...useless because there's very little I can do for her.

Emily's POV
She's arrived! She's perfect. Our beautiful baby girl, Soley Stanton, arrived early this morning. This precious, tiny bundle is so beautiful. My mother never told me how strongly I would love my baby when the time came. She never prepared me for this. I am lost for words.

In spite of his early concerns, William has turned into a super father. He talks to Soley all the time, just as he insisted he would. He's so very proud of his little daughter. If only his own father could see him now, leaning over the cot and talking to her as she drinks in her surroundings. If his father were here now, I can only hope he'd change his opinion of William.

William's POV
My spontaneity has inspired me to try my hand at writing some day. My new passion for reading has expanded to Emily's romance novels. I find them heart-warming and so very different from the relationship my own parents had. They're a delight to read and I find myself ever more inspired to begin my own creative journey through the art of the written word.

Emily's POV
In the midst of the raging thunder, Claudia arrived on the doorstep, to meet Soley. So far, nobody had met my baby yet. I don't quite feel ready to show her off to everybody. I've turned George down twice in the past few days but being such a wonderful friend, he has understood completely. So Claudia's arrival on our doorstep isn't quite what I was expecting, nor welcoming. However, being the ever gracious hostess, I allow her inside.

"Are you going to buy Trafalgar Square or not?"
"I'm thinking, darling. Don't rush me."
