Market day at the tavern..........
Rosa-Su is telling Elise about a boy she knew many years ago
"His name is Lewis and is a gypsy boy I grew up with in North Yorkshire,
he is the son of a beautiful dark haired Hebridean Gypsy girl and an Irish traveller.
We lived in the same field and had many happy times together, That was a long time ago.
He is now a well known tallented horse whisperer in the Gypsy / Traveller world
and many other folks who own horses employ him. I haven't seen him for over 4 years
but we do hear of each other through our friends.
For some strange reason I keep dreaming about him." Said Rosa-Su
"Perhaps your dreams are trying to tell you something........" Said Elise.
The girls fed and watered the critters and had their breakfast outside in the morning sunshine.
"It is the Summer fair market day at the tavern. There are some items I need to buy," said Rosa-su.
Rosa-Su, Elise Scrappy, Fifi, Tiny and Bo all get in the cart and.....Off they go!!
The girls arrive and start having a look at what is on sale. They meet the tavern landlord,
Jack and his brother John!
They see lots of items, Hats, a clock, some cakes, a duster, a stool, a sewing box, a cradle, a little toy ship, books, copper pans, a bottle of ale and a tankard!
Elise sees a hat and a tankard and asks Mrs Miggins how much they cost.
Elise buys the hat and tankard to surprise Rudi!!
Rosa-su buys a duster and asks how much the fern plant is.
Rosa-Su buys the lovely fern plant too!
Elise tells all the folk there that they are welcome to visit the sanctuary in August as they are having a late summer open day for visitors to meet the critters, the girls will be telling fortunes ,Jack and John offer to have an archery display and will ask some friends who wear Tudor dress and do fencing displays to come too!
All in aid of their critters!
Rosa-Su and Elise have dinner in the pub and Mary asks if Rosa-Su and Elise would like some Ginger Ale.
"Yes please!" both girls replied.
"Would you reald my palm please Rosa-Su?" said Mary
Rosa-Su Says "yes, of course I will," Rosa-Su looks at Marys palm and Says, "Within a year,
you will come into money, go on a journey and meet the man who you will marry!"
Mary replied ,"Oh My How exciting! Thank you Rosa-Su"
Behind Mary stood a tall man ..........
The tall man was next , he walked up to Rosas table , said nothing, sat down and held out his hand.
Rosa-Su said, "hello", and started looking at his palm. His hands looked very familiar.
She looked up at the stranger but couldn't see him properly because his cap was tilted
over his eyes and he held his head down.
"I am quite sure I have read your palms before, they look very familiar!
You have the hands of a Gypsy!" said Rosa-Su.
The stranger replied ,"You are right, I am a gypsy and you have read my palm before
.............Please read my hand again Rosa-Su!
Rosa-Su stood up , she suddenly realised who this man was and said,
"I know you! You are Lewis!"
Lewis stood up and hugged Rosa-Su tightly and said, "You haven't changed at all it is wonderful
to see you again!"
Rosa-Su replied , "Lewis, I am so pleased to see you again..........How are you
and what are you doing down here in South Yorkshire ?"
"Well, Said Lewis, "I have moved down here this week, I am now working for Lord Darnley
Training his race horses and both his young Shires and I have such a lot to tell you."
Rosa-Su replied, "I look forward to hearing all about it!"
Elise and Rudi appear.
Rudy said, "Hello again Lewis , I see you have found Rosa-Su!"
Lewis said, "Hi Rudi! Yes , I have found her!"
Rosa-Su looked surprised that Lewis and Rudi knew each other, Rudi explained they met some days ago
when Lewis first moved in and started work on the estate.
Rosa-Su said to Elise........."This is Lewis. Lewis , meet Elise, she is my best friend!!
"We are going to pack the cart Rosa-Su and getting ready to set off home..........Are you coming to meet our critters Lewis?" said Elise.
"Yes, I would like that!" said Lewis
Back home after the journey
The girls , dogs , bo get out and they unpack all the things they have bought.
The boys help girls from cart!
Rosa-Su took Lewis to see the horses and the donkey and the other critters surrounded him.
Lewis was a gentle man and the animals knew they were safe with him.
"What a lovely place you live and these critters are so tame", said Lewis.
Rosa-Su replied, Elise and I moved here on to this estate last March with our critter sanctuary
and we are so happy!
Wanting Rosa-Su to be alone with Lewis , have a good chat and get to know each other again,
Gypsy Elise and Rudi sat on the grass and she gave Rudi the hat and tankard that she had bought him.
Rudi said, "Thank you very much Elise, you are so kind and thoughtful......"
Rosa-Su and Lewis called Rudi and Elise over to the gazebo and they all sat together.
Lewis and Rosa-Su told them stories of their childhood and all the fun they had growing up.
Lewis said, " I have travelled all over England and never found anywhere I would want to stay,
but now I have found Rosa-Su again and this lovely estate.
I would love to live here for good. Would you like me to stay Rosa-Su?"
Rosa-Su replied, "Oh YES! I would..... Lewis do stay!"
The day was ending and the girls sat with the boys and watched the sun go down as they planned
for their Late summer opening day , where people can visit and see the criters.
They were looking forward to seeing the archery ,crossbow and long bow display ,
the Tudor fencing display and the folks in Tudor dress.
Mrs Miggins is doing some baking and sandwiches,
"Any money raised will help feed and keep the critters warm, said Elise."
Rosa-Su added, "I shall read palms and tell fortunes!"
"It will be a grand day I am sure!" Said Lewis!
It is dark and the gypsy girls wave to their boys as they make their ways home.............
The girls will now go to bed and dream of what the future may bring.......
The girls are both very happy!
