Mrs John Dashwood Story
Mrs. John Dashwood Fanny -
As Not a Favorite Character ~ This assignment was tough to choose as her brother, Robert runs a very close second!
Background: The family has already found out about the secret engagement between Miss. Lucy Steele and Edward Dashwood. The Steeles, Nancy and Lucy had been guests at The John Dashwoods when it was discovered there had been a commitment between the two. Fanny was beside herself. When Robert arrived to give her comfort, this is what could have passed between them that afternoon.
Mrs. John Dashwood, Fanny to her family and close friends, sat in a chair alone in the ballroom of the house where she and her family were Wintering in London. Her head in her hand, she leaned to the side as if the weight of the world was on her bony shoulders. Her hair, in ringlets, lie in array about her neck.
Deep in her illusion of despair, she did not hear her brother Robert Dashwood enter the room.
Dear, dear sister.
