BC: The End
FC: My Life... Lucie Manette
1: She takes care of me like I am her own child. | For as long as i can remember i have been watched over by Miss. Pross, because i thought my parents were dead. | Family
2: I was visited by Mr. Jarvis Lorry. He said he had news to bring me, but hesitated before telling me.
3: Eventually he told me the news. He spoke of my father and how he was still alive. I was so startled I fainted. | When I recovered I told Mr.Lorry that I wanted to see my father right away.
4: My father was living in the top floor of the Defarge's wine shop. | It's located in Saint Antoine, France, a very poor community. | Wine Shop
5: Because my father was in prison for many years, he didnt remember very much. | When i first seen him he was making shoes. I was told thats all he ever does. When my father noticed my hair, he remembered who i was. It seemed to help him recover. I gladly took him home to Miss. Pross later that day. | Shoemaking
6: My old friend Charles Darnay was put on trial for treason. He had helped my father in the past when he was ill, so i did not believe he deserved this. | One of the lawyers, Sydney Carton, looked very much alike Charles. The jury decided that because of this Charles was innocent. | I was very glad that the outcome had been what it was. | Bastille
7: Ever since that day both Mr. Carton and Mr. Darnay would always come by my home. I loved Carton but he never had any self confidence. I felt a lot of sympathy for him. | Darney and I were later married and blessed with two children. One which had been lost very young. The other, little Lucie, became Carton's bestfriend. This excited me because then Carton could stay in the family and Little Lucie would have a friend.
8: The Revolution | The poor decided to rebel against the government in France. All aristocrats there were to be beheaded. | The revolution was lead by the Defarges.
9: Charles went to France to try and save an old friend. Because he is an aristocrat he was put in jail and later sentenced to die with in only a few hours. | While he was in prison me and Little Lucie would stand outside his window, hoping he could see us.
10: I begged for Madame Defarge's sympathy but she told me she was not going to stop because of one wife. | She was going to kill every single one of us, even my young child, Little Lucie.
11: Because Mr.Carton had looked so much like Charles, he switched places with him in the prison cell. | Charles Darney returned with a letter from Carton, “If you remember the words that passed between us, long ago, you will readily comprehend this when you see it. You do remember them, I know. It is not in your nature to forget them.“
