I walked into the booming room full of music and chatter. We look around the room to find Mr.Barker who quickly comes to greet us." Mary, Thomas you both look wonderful and this must be your daughter Elizabeth". He sounds quit clearly intoxicated. Before I can reply my father steps in "where is James?" "My boy Jamie should be down any minute he went for s ride this mourning." My mother smiled at that she absolutely adores animals. "does he like horses?" she asked quite cheerily. "Yes since he was a little boy…how about we get some drinks?"
We sit by the fire drinking champagne until my breathe leaves my body. At tall copper skinned boy with dirty blond hair and green eyes walks towards us. Mr.Barker jumps up " Jamie good your here I have someone I would like you to meet." "Father have you been drinking?" he laughs. Mr.Barker Ignores him "James this is Elizabeth path." I stand up to meet him and he looks stunned by me almost in aw.
