8. A Date

It didn’t take them long to find her as she hadn’t retreated far and was waiting for them to come out of the room. When she saw them together she knew she had done the right thing and she happily agreed to their request.


The next day Erica woke up and smiled as she looked out of the window she could hear the birds chirping good morning and everything seemed wonderful in the world even the sun was out streaming through her window and laying on the floor like a golden river. Excited a laugh bubbled out her throat before she even realised she want to laugh. She got dressed quickly slipping into her best tartan dress. She even sat still long enough for Elspeth to curl her hair on a hot iron from the fire as she carefully applied some make up ensuring it wasn’t clearly visible as make up; she didn’t want to be seen as a lightskirt. Then she practically skipped down to breakfast pulling Elspeth along with her.


Elspeth had a smile that hovered on the edge of her lips at her cousin’s behaviour. Erica had always been the less reserved when she was happy she was ecstatic. When she was sad she was broken and when worried she had been oppressed. “What’s with ye today? Yesterday ye moved like the world was going to end and today is the best day in creation”

“I am happy is all cousin” Erica said with a bright smile crossing her face. Erica was floating on a bubble of elation at the picnic the day before Blair had been attentive and kind he had asked questions about the sight and what she had seen in the lake and she had answered honestly. But by far the best part had been the way he had dealt with the information he been worried she had seen in it in his eyes but it hadn’t been for himself it had been for her. Then at the end with her mum watching he had given her a chaste kiss that had turned his eyes dark with desire and he had whispered in her ear "Keep that thought warm for me”
