Chapter 1
It was late June at the Smith estate in Barnstead, Lincolnshire, England. The bags were packed and the maids were given a staggered two weeks off so each could enjoy a week of holiday. It was an extremely rare treat for all as it meant little normal work to do without the family present and what was left was simple dusting and regularly scheduled cleaning

Weddings and Reunions Part 1

This is a mashup of three stories into one longer story. Like the previous series it will be one longer story but converging and diverging as the story moves along. Katie Benson was given a background based upon the recommendation of T.J. and was referenced a couple of times in the past but never directly named. Eve and Sydney were created by Mario Cawhern and used with full permission

The Weird Person

“mantener lejos el chico raro”
“pran prekosyon nou a bizarre timoun”
“roksaatouk chhngay pi kmeng cham lek”
“tránh xa những đứa trẻ kỳ lạ”

Four languages, four ways of saying that I was weird. That I was a bad person to be around. That I was different.

I didn't ask to be different. I couldn't help that my family was born here and lived here for generations. I can't help that I struggle with language. I can't help that I try hard to learn and improve myself.

The time has finally come for the twins to wed each other's best friend. Lord and Lady Smith get to finally meet the large family and all of the colorful members. It isn't all sweet and sentimental as the two newest members of the family have a crisis due to an old enemy while family issues plague four more members of the family. A new friend may be more than just a friend to John, Melanie, Paul, and Willie while her connection to another is solidified. And of course, David learns the truth about Emma.

For A Friend

Some events transcend time, others impact families for decades to come. When a chance encounter with a prostitute results in a special friendship one man has to suffer the consequences...especially when this prostitute isn't entirely as she seems.

This is intended to be an origin story for "Winnisimmet Tales" but is also a stand-alone story in its own rite. You don't have to have read any of the previous Winnisimmet Tales to read and appreciate the story.
