Welcome friends, followers, and Weekend Writing Warriors!
Continuing with sentences from ‘Love is a Masterpiece’ this week. Cassandra has asked a poor young man, Henry, to create a diversion, but doesn’t really get a chance to explain why…
“Her lot is all the same, thinking that because we’re not as richified, we’d do anything for a few shillings. Well, you can forget it, my lady.”
Cassandra considered making one more appeal, coming clean, and then she heard her name called again. “Cassandra dear, where are you?” Cassandra stood up straight and tall, knowing that Mother would be keeping an eye out for her bright golden hair, and stepped away from Henry and Raven.
She pulled her mother away from the line of waiting couples. “One last time I beg you, and then I hold my peace forevermore: do not ask this of me.”
“You do not wish to love Geoffrey on your wedding day?”
