Gosh, Ellen, so lovely, so well written, so original and... so hot! pffffft

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

Thanks, my dears.
I'm still blushing over it.

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

Oh, Ellen, I feel so duuuuuuuur-tay.

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

I feel so duuuuuuuur-tay.

Yes, I think I should have subtitled this one "Porn & Prejudice." Hope you had your fan available!

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

WOW cant catch my breath neigh

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

Whew!!! I'd love Mr. Darcy to teach me what a roll in the hay is! Great story. Very VERY entertaining!

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

Hot hot hot!

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

Ellen !
Oh, MY! *fanning with my hands* Where is that 'cold shower' emoticon ?
Rennee, dearest, you should have warned ud !

It seems she enjoyed the lesson - of course she is also inclined to do so for the improvement of her mind.
Don't you think, dear Ellen, she is in great need to learn to play billiard ?
AFterall, one should find means to amuse oneself during long harsh Derbyshire' winters....

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

Ma puce, I did warn you... but you just wouldn't listen!

Rush over to Ellen G's pages and savour her delicious short story "The Lesson"... Do not forget your fans, ladies, I repeat... do not forget your fans!

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

Oh my goodness! I should have known better than to read that at work. But it certainly woke me up very well! :)

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

Goodness! I am all flushed and it's all your fault, Ellen! Wickedly (fantastic) hot story!

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

I have to agree with Eli. Where is the Horse?

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

Where is the Horse?

Believe me, if I had such a horse, I would not be sharing!

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

Believe me, if I had such a horse, I would not be sharing!

I would never have thought to find such a selfish disdain of the feelings in others in you, dearest...

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

I guess I wouldn't share either...but I could steal it, couldn't I ?SmileyCentral.com

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

I must confess, I'd demand absolute loyalty of this horse either...

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

Great short story! Hot, Hot, Hot! I agree with Jess! I have to comment that I also love your other stories as well, great job of writing!

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

Lovely. And is anyone else thinking about the scene in "Young Frankenstein," when Teri Garr invites Gene Wilder to join her as she rolls in the hay, crying "Roll in the hay, roll in the hay!"

Funny, yes, but it lacks the eroticism of your vignette.

Thanks...

jancat

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

After reading this, I only regret one thing: Why didn't I read this at work, where I have air conditioned ? Two fans are not enough!!! I'll have to take a cold shower right now (which will be doubly good, as it's summer where I live... )

By the way, what is exactly a 'roll in the hay'? can you write another vignette explaining it in more detail, dearest Ellen?

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

Oh, my, Maria Teresa, I'm such an American I never think that some readers might not understand a particular colloquialism. In this case, you've missed the last joke.

A "roll in the hay" is, as Dictionary.com so succinctly puts it: "an instance of sexual intercourse."

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

Jancat:

That is a very funny scene! No, I wasn't thinking of it at the time, but I'll admit it adds an additional element of humor that I didn't intend.

By the way, for anyone who cares, I'm preparing a "prequel" to this story...wherein Darcy first realizes what a turn-on it is to think of Elizabeth as still being "Miss Bennet."

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

Dear Ellen, don't worry!!!

I did have an idea of what 'a roll in the hay' was, since I saw that expression used in that sense several times (without actual hay being involved). But yes, I never took the trouble to look up its meaning in a dictionary (as well as the meaning of many other words and idioms that I didn't know), so thank you! I believe that now I can understand Lizzy's joke fully.

Anyway, all of that doesn't mean I didn't enjoy the vignette, because I loved it! Thanks, for sharing your talent ,and for your great patience with clumsy readers like me!!

1. We ALL care...!

2. Anything written from the pov of Mr Darcy by a talented author like you is sheer delight.

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

I second that! I can't wait to read it. I'm on triple fan alert!

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

A little breathless Mrs Darcy barges in to tell you all that "The Lesson" will be published in the Eyeopener shortly!

Read more on the "What's New" page!

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

Green with envy, Ellen. May this be the first step for a successful writer career!SmileyCentral.com

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

Wooo congratulations Ellen! :)

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

Congratulations, Ellen!! What was your response when approached about having your short story published? I'm all curiousity.

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

Thanks for all your good wishes!

Rita, since you asked:
I was tickled, of course, to be approached. I'm an advertising copywriter by trade, but I've never gotten as much satisfaction out of anything else I've written as I get from my FF. But I have to tell you, given the nature of "The Lesson," I was also rather embarrassed. I mean, I can't talk about my work with my teenagers, and I don't even want to tell my parents! My husband is so proud that I am going to be a "published author," he wants to tell everyone...but he's never read the story (or anything else I've written for that matter), so he doesn't really understand why I'm reluctant to discuss it at a dinner with friends and our high-school age children.

The editor promised to send a copy of the paper, and I'm not sure I can even bring myself to read it.

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

Oh! Ellen!! LOL I'm am SO feeling your dilemma. Well, you can share your joy with us because we are so very proud of you! You can talk about it with us all you want.

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

CONGRATULATIONS!! You must be so pleased!

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

Congratulations, Ellen! You make the gang at Mrs. D's very proud...

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

Ellen, this is absolutely wonderful news!!!! Congratulations!!!! And I completely understand how you'd feel about "relatives" finding out. My husband knows what I write but I wouldn't want my mother to ever read my stories!!!

Regardless, be very proud of yourself! You deserve it.

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

That's great news Ellen! And it's so cool too, to have your own piece published! Congrats to you

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

Having just read "The Food of Love", I had the urge to read "The Lesson"... perfection!!!
Thanks!

Kim

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

Thanks, everyone!

Tracey: Given the nature of your stories , I can see how you'd sympathize!

Kim: Since "The Food of Love" was intended as the prequel to "The Lesson," you've actually read it in the proper order. I hope it had the desired effect!

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

I just remembered this bit from "The Lesson":

Elizabeth continued without breaking stride. If she thought it odd that her husband called her by her maiden name, she did not remark upon it. Indeed, there had already been three other times during their brief marriage in which he had done the same. In each case, the phrase was no mere slip of the tongue; it was expressed quite deliberately, she had soon discovered...as the prelude to some new experience of a decidedly carnal nature.

Three other times? Dare we hope this means you'll write two more prequels, in addition to "The Food of Love"? Please? Pretty please? Pretty please with cream and sugar on top?

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

Three other times? Dare we hope this means you'll write two more prequels, in addition to "The Food of Love"

Good thinking, Melissa!

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

Oh yes yes yes...more prequels...I talked my husband into reading "Food for Thought" on our anniversary and, well, life just got better!! Congrats and pleassse give us more!

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

The food of Love, honey, not for thought.(Inspired after Elizabeth's proclamation that poetry is not the food for love, retorting to Darcy's comment that it was) Anyway,I guess that "thinking" was the last thing you guys did, after reading it!

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

Anyway,I guess that "thinking" was the last thing you guys did, after reading it!

OMG, you're a hoot, Eli!

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

Melissa & Frances:

I'm so glad that you (and others!!!) have been enjoying my vignettes. They are, after all, good, dirty fun. I certainly could write another prequel...in fact, Julie L had a good suggestion in using a return to the Parsonage, and I even started writing such a story in my head while on vacation.

BUT...

I am concerned that Mrs. Darcy's readers could start to tire of these stories, if there are too many of them, once the novelty wears off. So if there is enough demand -- perhaps, say, from "six accomplished women"? (to suggest a number that for some reason just popped into my head) -- I would be delighted to comply.

Let's put it to a vote: Shall I write another? Likewise, if the idea is beginning to bore you, or you think it's just too much of a good thing, let me know, and I'll take the hint. Do let me know, ladies.

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

Well, considering I was the first messageboarder who mentioned another one...please put me down as the first of the six accomplished women!

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

I dearly love to be one of the accomplished women LOL!! Do write more!

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

I would also like to be one of the acomplished women, I would love more of these

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

May I be considered as one of the accomplished women, too? (I love your writing Ellen, vignette or full length, I'm your fan!)

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

Thanks for the vote of confidence, KayakChick, Gio, Michelle, and Rita. Now, if I were to count Melissa and Frances as well, I would have my six accomplished women. There have been no "nay" votes. Perhaps I should just go ahead....

Hmm...

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

Oh! Do write more (spoken in the tone of Kitty in P&P3 when she said "oh! do hold a ball!", when the Bennet ladies were at Netherfield)

Re: The Lesson by Ellen G

I will, then, Gio.
