Chapter Seventeen

I woke up frowning. It was raining.

‘Sarah, I believe I will have to be dressed warmly today’ I said unhappily

She chuckled ‘Are you not fond of cold days, miss?’

‘Not at all. There isn’t a thing I can do during them! I must sit inside all day. How unappealing!’

Sarah laughed ‘Well then, if you put it like that, miss, I see what you mean. Now, which dress shall it be today?’

‘How about my maroon one? The warm dress. With my shawl.’

‘Of course, miss.’

Sarah helped me change do my hair.

‘Now, you’d best go down for breakfast, miss. I believe cook has made some porridge.’

I sighed ‘Thank you, Sarah’

I walked into the breakfast room to find that Lucas had not yet come down. I quietly got my porridge and sat opposite Lord Patrick.

‘I’m going away for a while’ he said after a few minuted of silence

‘Away?’ I asked

‘Yes,’ he replied gruffly ‘for a week. Lucas has agreed to stay here to keep a watch on you.’

‘How… generous of him’

‘If I hear you’ve been up to any funny business, I can guarantee a swift punishment will be delivered. Is that understood?’

I nodded slowly.

‘Good. Stay here until Lucas comes. I am leaving.’

‘Good bye, Lord Patrick’

He walked out and I couldn’t help but be relieved.

Lucas POV


I have been doing what I can to find out more about your Catherine.

So far, I have discovered that she was quite well off; her mother was from a wealthy family. Nothing that you did not already know. What I ask is what about her father? Who is he? For I cannot find out anything about him.

Surely her mother would not have a child without marrying- for she would be ruined if that were the case. So what happened to him?

Forgive me, I must go. But I shall keep searching.

Your friend,
