Monday: Gerolt’s gaze shifted back to Cassandry’s face. His eyes suddenly grew so warm, she almost felt herself embraced. “There you are,” he murmured.
Tuesday: Gerolt nodded at Cassandry’s daughter, already vanishing through the hall’s exit with Rauffe. “When we come in, I will attempt to help you corner her, if you wish it.”
Wednesday: Antony had carved their initials in the tree the day he had said he wished to marry her, making this their own, special place.
But before it was ours, it was mine and Gerolt’s.
Thursday: (Gerolt to Cassandry, talking about his boyhood with his friend, Samson): “We stole into the village one night and raised the hue and cry just to see all the villagers turn out in alarm, then hid and smothered our laughter as they ran about in confusion in their nightclothes.”
Friday: “You wonderful, wretched bird,” Gerolt said. “If you have raised my hopes for nothing, you may not find me so quick to pluck Gib Cat from the tree the next time he tries to make you his dinner.”
