Romantic Vignette #9 : Virgie

Why couldn't I be named Belle or a Catherine instead of Virgie she thought. Plain old Virgie with the books. Virgie had a plan. When she turn 17 in six months and graduate from high school, she wouldn't go up to Chicago like her mother wanted her to. She wasn't going to waste away in a factory. No, she run away to New York or even better, Paris. She call herself Catherine, write and truly be free.

Oh but I think Virgie is such a lovely name. I love all old fashioned, feminine, beautiful names like that!
