Personal Narrative-A Day In Victorian England Essay

It is a normal day in Victorian England, I and my family wake up, and do what we usually do, go to work. Once I got to work, my boss assigned me to a new chimney. It was a normal day of cleaning, until I spot a girl out of the corner of my eye. I get lowered down to the bottom, and I introduce myself. After we both introduce ourselves, I find out her name is Kate, Kate Dickens, the third child of Charles Dickens. I was shocked, I was standing in front of Charles Dickens daughter. I tell her I have to go, I would’ve stayed longer, but I had to get back to work.

Once I get home home from work, I immediately start thinking of her beautiful brown hair, and her dazzling brown eyes. Then! remember I still have on my work clothes, I only have two pairs of clothes, work ones and my ones for anything else. Then my mother and father got home from work, my mother works at a factory, and my father works in the mines. We eat a little supper, like we usually do, because my family is poor. After supper, my mother tucks me into bed, and I start thinking about her again. She is the most beautiful girl in the whole entire world, with her dress on, and her hair tucked back behind her ears.

The next morning, is the first time in my whole entire life that| was excited to go to work. Once I get into the chimney, I keep an eye out for her to walk by. I start singing one of my favorite songs, and keep on working. A moment later I see her feet at the bottom of the chimney, I go down there and I am standing face to face with the beautiful girl. Turns out she was thinking about me too, and she asks me if I would like to have supper with her tonigh,. I say yes with a big smile on my face. She tells me to meet her here at 6:15, I told he I will be here, and I go back up the chimney and finish cleaning.

Right after I was done cleaning, I ran straight home to tell my parents. They were so happy for me, they told me to go clean up, so I did. While I was combing my hair in the mirrior, I was thinking, what about if her family doesn’t like me, especially her father, which is Charles Dickens. It’s 6:00, and I comb my hair one last time, and tell my parents i’m leaving. On the way to her house, I tell myself that everything is going to be fine, and I start singing my favorite song again. I finally reach her door step, and ring the doorbell.

She answers the door, and she looks as beautiful as ever. She tells me to come in, and before we ate we talked for a bit. I told her a little bit about me, like how I have been a chimney sweep since I was five years old. I tell her this is my last year as a chimney sweep, because i’m getting to old. Then she tells me about herself, like how she has nine sibling, but one of them died when she was only one year old. We finished up talking, and went to the dinner table to eat. She introduced me to her family, and they all seem very nice.

After she introduced me, we started dishing up our plates. We talked the rest of the time we ate, and I really liked her family, and her. Once we were done we went into her living room, and she showed me her paintings. “I never knew you painted”, I said. “I’ve been painting for a while now”, said Kate. We stood there for awhile admiring her paintings, and talking. It was now 8:00, and I told her I had to go now, and she said “okay, but just wait, come here. ” I walked to her, and we looked into each other’s eyes, she told me that she really liked me, and I said i liked her back.

She went in for a kiss, and I was so excited. After we kissed, she asked me if I wanted to come back for supper on Saturday, and I said yes! I went home and told my mom all about the night, she was so happy for me. Since Kate liked painting so much, I thought | would try to draw her a picture instead of a painting because, I do not have the money to buy paint. That night I finished my drawing, and I thought it looked pretty good. I went into bed, and I couldn’t stop thinking about tonight, it was the best thing that ever happened to me.
