His Lucky Charm II
This is the sequel to His Lucky Charm. It is assumed that you, the reader, are familiar with the characters and events featured in that story. If you are not, you may want to read it before you start with His Lucky Charm II. Knowledge of other stories in the universe, particularly Ellen Trilby, will also help to understand certain allusions and connections.
The readers familiar with the Anthony Carter Universe will recognise quite a number of regulars, chief of all the indomitable Lucy Wilkes, the last survivor from Anthony Carter's generation. Ellen Trilby and her family feature prominently as well.
Please note that moving the story to Ye Olde England also marks a shift of spelling and diction. Forget the "-ize" endings and don't mind the local colour!
I planned to name this sequel "A Victorian Lady", but then the story took on its own path and suddenly it was not about Jim and Rose alone anymore. I debated other titles ("TwoWomen"), but that was already taken by another story on SOL. Thus, and because it is really not a separate story from the first book, I decided to go with Roman numerals.
Fortunately, SpikeCO stayed on board as editor, and I am grateful for his help, his patience, and his insightful comments and corrections.
Lastly, I have reasons for posting my stories exclusively on SOL and possibly Finestories. I do not want my stories to be reposted or circulated anywhere else. Please, no forwarding the story by email either! Thank you for respecting my rights.
