When Rose woke up on her birthday she went outside to play a sneaky game of cricket before her Mother woke up. She then went inside to have breakfast with her family. She quickly ate and then opened her presents! Her Mother and Father gave her gloves and a parasol, Edward gave her his special cricket ball. Martha gave her a gold locket engraved with birds on it.
Stop fighting! Please!
Will they ever stop yelling?
After breakfast Rose's Aunt, Grandma and Uncle came. She went up and hugged them and then left as her Mother needed to tell them some news only for Adults. Rose left but hid round the corner so she could hear the news. All she heard was Mother saying "Yes, that's right, Alice is sadly coming to stay" Rose was super happy, was Alice really going to stay?
How about this Madam?
Ugh! I hate corset shopping!
That looks good! Does'nt it Rose?!?
When Alice arrived from NZ Rose ran up to her, "Alice!" Rose screamed! She ran in for a hug. "Hello...Alice" Rose's Mother said in a nasty tone. Rose's Mother didn't approve of Alice. "Whats in those big crates?" said Rose, "Books!" Alice whispered so that her Mother couldn't hear, " Could I read some?!?" Said Rose "Of course!" Said Alice!
Your Welcome Rose
Thank you Alice! I love the tram!
"So, tell us about New Zealand" said Rose's father at the dinner table. "Well I really enjoyed it but, I was just missing the family with all of my teaching". "Oh right, at that school where you burnt the class down and it was all over the news." Roses Mother said. "Jes! It want my fault" said Alice. "Don't talk back to me" Rose's Mother said as she stomped out of the room.
After the eventful dinner last night, Rose's Mother took Rose to buy her first corset. Rose dreaded this moment for her whole life! Rose didn't want a corset, you can't move or breathe in them! Now how is she supposed to play cricket? Rose put on the corset. It was so tight, Rose hated it! She wanted to be playing cricket right now, not wearing breath taking corsets, literally!
In the morning Alice said that because Mother was away, she would take Rose out into the city! She was so excited, she got changed and left with Alice, "How are we going to get there?" said Rose, "You choose" said Alice, "The tram?' said Rose, "Sure" said Alice. "Yay! Thank you, where are we going" said Rose, "It's a surprise!" said Alice.
