“You know, City, you really ought to smile more.”
Felicity cringed. Not only did she hate when her older sister called her that,
but she also hated being told what to do. Especially by a woman who was
only a year and a half older than she was. It didn’t matter that Phoebe was
older, pretty and all-around, more attractive. She didn’t constantly need to be
giving out advice. But that was all she ever seemed to do recently. And it was
really beginning to get on Felicity’s pip.
But with their father sitting close by in the carriage, there was little that she
could do without upsetting the both of them, and she had long since learned
that it was easier just to go along with whatever her sister said. So she forced
a smile onto her face, making sure to show her.
“Oh, come on, now you are just trying too hard,” Phoebe insisted, and
Felicity stifled a groan. No matter what she did, she couldn’t please
everybody, especially her sister, who had to be perfect all the time. “You
know, your first Season would have gone much better if you had just
followed my advice.”
Felicity scowled back at that because she had followed everything her sister
said to a fault. The problem was that she did not have the same elegant good
looks or charming manners as her sister. So, everything she did came across
as clumsy or foolish.
“Can I not just be myself and hope that it attracts a suitor?” Felicity protested,
glancing in her father’s direction for a little help. Yet she found none and it
was clear from the way he was gazing out of the window that he was barely
listening to their conversation at all.
No, this is a conversation for the women, Felicity thought grimly, knowing
that if her mother had been around, she would have dealt with it. Phoebe had
always been all too willing to step into their mother’s shoes, scolding and
reprimanding wherever she got the chance, flexing her will as was the right
of the eldest sibling in the family.
Felicity only wished that their younger brother was with them. Maybe then
she might not have found herself quite so put upon by her sister. Maybe the
ten-year-old Teddy might have distracted her with his grossness, as she liked
to call it.
