Joanna was ecstatic to hear that Alexandra was to be her helper, though when the redhead left the blonde found herself feeling quite sad and abandoned. Her only hope was Lady Oakham, it seemed. She felt truly awful asking the woman for yet another favour, but without aid she would be forced to sit on the lawn indefinitely!
"I am so terribly sorry to impose, Lady Oakham, but would you be so kind as to drop me off at a carriage as you go on your way?" she requested. "I do apologise for the inconvenience."
She would not ask anything more than to be sent back to the castle. As lovely as the after party would be, she had not brought Deedee and did not feel it was right to hang on someone else's arm like a parasite.OOC: Joanna will not attend the after party unless someone offers to escort her. Not asking you to do so! I'm fine with ending here! Thanks for the lovely thread, ladies!
