The Letters of Sierra Charmonte

All Rights Reserved ©

Summary

When sixteen-year-old heiress Sierra Charmonte lost her father because of pneumonia, their close family friend, Celeste Sinclaire, was bestowed to take care of her as stated in her father's Will and Testament. As her Aunt Celeste was a savvy entrepreneur, she was unable to visit her in London. Sierra received tickets from her aunt to travel to America alongside her trusted associates, Henri, Ms Abram, and Jane. Sierra did not know how to cope with her father's passing, but she found comfort and joy from a steward she met boarding the RMS Titanic. ********** A/N: I highly recommend listening to classical and romantic music while reading this story to bask in the Edwardian era. And this is the first draft of the new version. The spelling and punctuation have been standardised, modernised and made consistent throughout. (If errors are found, please state them in the comments, for I'd love to improve on my writing skill.) Happy reading!

A Letter from Henri Colinsfirth

LE MEURICE,
PARIS, FRANCE,
23rd of February 1912.

My dearest Sierra,

This letter comes hoping I am there with you as it leaves me at present. Will you please enlighten me and tell me how you are feeling as of late? I worry about you most of my days, dear; forgive this inescapable thought of mine. I must admit how regretful I am for being here, fulfilling my duty. If only I could be there with you, I would be granting every whim and wish you might require. I am your humble servant for ever, my Sierra.

The reason I am writing to you is that it is the first month of our beloved Daniel’s passing, and it breaks my heart, for I am not by your side. However, let us not be melancholy. It is not what your father would desire for us. Surely he would love to see your bright smile as you remember him through the photographs, letters, and memories he shared with us. He would never want to see you frown now, am I correct?

Your last letter was much appreciated, for I sincerely longed for you as well. I felt and still feel your pain, and I wish I could make you smile and laugh, just as always. I am yearning for the sound of your voice, Sierra.

Work has been tiring; nevertheless, thinking of you shines a smile on my face. Counting the days to see you again makes me jump in joy! And your drawing is remarkable. Are you sure you did not trace one of our photographs? I’m impressed!

If you were here, beyond doubt, you would already be in the Louvre, mesmerised by the art, or promenading along the Seine, wondering about the history of each bridge, or dragging me to the Eiffel Tower and watching the city grow smaller as we head to the top. Just like the last time we were all here during the holiday. I could still picture you holding your lacy umbrella, laughing with Daniel as one of the street performers let you pet the dancing monkey. Oh, it was such a delightful sight, my dear. I might not have a camera with me that day, but it would always be in my mind, painted in such beautiful colours. It was a good day.

I received Celeste’s letter last week, and I got a ticket to travel by cruise liner to New York in April as well. What a thrill to be journeying with you again, for I cannot wait to see you. Yes, my dear, it has just been weeks, but I am thrilled to see you. Keep thinking of me as I think of you! Please, send my regards to Sadie and Jane.

With all my love,

Henri

PS.

My dearest Sierra, I hope you and Jane are not tormenting Sadie with your scathingly brilliant and mischievous ideas!
