Poor Amelia, struggling with 'the drink taken'! At least it means she didn;t worry about what the injury might do for her dancing. As for Hilda, no harm in showing who's boss occasionally! Thanks, LIsa.

Poor Hilda. I hope that headache will leave her alone soon - the girls certainly seem to feel that the punishment they have received is more than they would have expected, but maybe it will teach them to think...
I do hope that Amelia does Not push herself to dance, despite the pain - she could easily give herself a far more serious injury, one which could put even more of a stopper on dancing than the current situation.
I did like the way that Hilda dealt with Amelia herself though. Hopefully she has got through to her there. I do wonder whether or not the other girls would have found her a little easier on them this morning, after a good nights sleep and some pain killers!!! Even if they did well deserve a telling off after that!

Oh this is lovely, Lisa! Amelia's story is really interesting and I loved Hilda putting Jo's gas at a peep for once! And fell about laughing at the idea that "Anna will adore having the twins to care for full time".

I must admit to being pretty concerned about the result of much of what has gone on. Seems to me that everyone has made several mistakes in one way or another - with so many differing causes.
What a tangled web this is turning into.

I feel quite sorry for Joey here! She was only trying to help and I think Hilda's gone a bit over the top with both of them! I love your character Amelia. Thanks :-)

Wow!! Hilda must really have been annoyed to rebuke Joey so thoroughly for her behaviour, and Joey herself even more startled to receive the rebuke! But at bottom, Hilda has Amelia's best interests at heart, and she had every right to give Jo her unvarnished opinion of her actions - actions which I think Jo will regret herself now that she knows the whole truth behind why Amelia has been sent to the school. Not sure that Jack's reaction - deciding they both need a short holiday - was the best one - that almost seems like a reward for her behaviour, which is not, I think, his intention.
Meantime, I don't envy Amelia tomorrow morning - even with Matey's nostrum, I think she'll be feeling pretty sorry for herself after all that brandy!! What I am hoping, though, is that she has done no lasting harm to her leg.
Thanks, Lisa - I'm really enjoying this, even though I may not post after each chapter.

Matron certainly redeemed herself handsomely there, and Amelia is rapidly becoming a personality in her own right. Like MaryR, I suspect that her resolve to devote all her energy to her dancing is going to be a source of trouble before too long; I am really looking forward to seeing how this unfolds, though.
Thank you, Lisa.
Thank you for your enthusiasm! About to post the next chapter - hope you enjoy!

Yep! Matron more than redeemed herself - and got a kiss as a reward!! - and Amelia is developing into a character, alright, but oh, I do hope she wakes up to her wrong-headedness at deciding only to concentrate on her dancing. How far will her dreaminess take her, I wonder... or those early morning practices. Thanks, Lisa.
Sadly, in the words of the song, 'there may be trouble ahead' ...!
Thanks for your review!

Joey was being so good there, that it was quite a shock to find her then be so heedless. Amelia needed to break down at that point, and hopefully it's done her good, but oh dear, what is she going to do now? This is beautifully written, Lisa. Thank you.

Oh, gosh, that last part was so moving, Lisa. Poor woman! No one to help her bear it all. I loved the scenes with the girls, very EBDish, and Biddy was lovely. She alaways was a breath of fresh air, wasn't she? Thank you!

This originally appeared before I joined the CBB, though I seem to recall having read a small part of it at some time. I'm glad that I will now have a chance to read it in full - it looks really interesting.
