V's Day, Part Two: Hard Things In The Air

Emma was reading a Jane Austen novel, Pride and prejudice when she finally heard a voice from the hall. Her heart beated faster: it is Charles!

He arrived late in the afternoon, with a bunch of red roses.
Charles: Hi, Honey! I am sorry...

Jane: You are here and that is the only thing that matters.
They gave big kiss each other, then Charles went out and brought a box: it was a delicious chocolate cake!

Jane: You are amazing! You gets better and better...
Charles: That's bacause finally I have a reason to cook.
Jane: You mean I can't cook...
Chrales: No. I mean finally I have someone to cook for.

They settled down on the bed and started to eat the cake together. 

Jane: Can you stay?
Charles: No. I have to wake up eary tomorrow and all my stuffs are at home.

'It is so hard to let you go' thought Jane. But she couldn't say this. She told Mark too many times and don't want to make the same mistakes again...

Charles: I have to... Oh, Jane, it is so hard to leave you!
He looked as he would like to say something else, too, but stopped talking. Long minutes passed in silence.

A bit later they started a conversation about everyday things. Jane told him her visit by Elinor and the baby, Charles explained how he discovered the secrets of the chocolate cream. They laughed, but... There was something strange in the air. A little tensity, maybe a little sadness, too.

Two hours later Charles gave a long, gentle kiss to his beloved.
Charles: I have to go now.
Jane: Take care! I love you!
Charles: I love you, too.

Jane was alone again and she couldn't sleep well that night...

To be continued...

Barbie And What She Can Teach Us

I am sorry I haven't been there for a long time - I was extremly busy because of my work.

Before I would continue my stories let me show You some opinions about what we Barbie doll fans and bloggers think about this toy icon.

You can read some important thoughts there on Fricskamacska's blog, there on Vic's site and there on Boróka's page - what I totally agree but don't want to repeate because my fellow bloggers explained it better I think (but You can also read my own comments below).

And today, searching for new blogs, I have found a really touching story under the title:

What Barbie Taught Me. What did she teach you?

Let me quote some sentences from this site:

"It is sad for me today to think that if Barbie were a real woman, she would be obsessing about food and diets.

While Barbie is a huge part of the illusion we girls were sold about having to look a certain way, at the time that illusion did me more good than not, as it was my healthy escape from an abusive home life.

Today I am grateful I had those reprieves in my childhood. I’m not sure where I would be today if I had had nothing to feel excited about. My Dream Barbie did distort my body image, but in other ways, she saved my life."

Please, take a look.
Warmest hugs,
