The Brother In- Law Part II

The Brother In- Law Part II christine asked Christian - what are we going to do now? Christian answered - I will take care of you. I will leave you in a safe place, while I go look for fortune. They left in the wagon they had and went back to town. Christian found a Convent and he talked to the Mother Superior. He told her what had happened and asked if he could leave his sister there, while he went to look for a new life for him and her. The Mother Superior said yes - that they would take care of her. Christian left and went far away. He was twenty years old. he was young and very handsome. he soon found a job and worked very hard. After ten years, he became very rich. He had a car, a home, nice clothes and money. He said to himself - now I'll go and get my sister. He started his journey back. When he got to the Convent, the Mother Superior did not recongized him. He told her who he was and why he was there. She told him - I'm sorry - she can not go with you. He asked why? She said - because she got married last week. He wanted to know - who the hack, she got married to. The Mother Superior said - she got married to JESUS. She took the vows last week. He turned around and looked at JESUS and said - I couldn't have picked a better Brother In - Law myself. He went back to the place where his parents had lived and everything was reconstructed, only better and with a bigger house. He soon found a girl and and got married too. He went back to the convent and donated a lot of money to help them out. Everyone was happy. His sister and him would always stay very close. The end....

    Your a wonderful story teller Lucilla, had me guessing all the way through. I've had quite a bit to do with nuns during my years, I once danced with one to 'The only way is up' by yazz, and could she swing it lol.

    Sorry for the late reply, my computer crashed. Back to topic now. I'm glad that things turned around for them! But what surprised me the most is what you meant by brother-in-law. Such an intricate story, that made me unsure of where it was headed... but there's always some morals to your stories which make them stick with you better. Keep doing what you do!

    It has always been hard for me to understand this life style choice of the nuns, but I realize what wonderful people they are, and this is a really GREAT story. I was thinking maybe it was going to turn out to be the true tale of some relation of yours! Loved it.
