Passage of Time

She paused in the doorway, looking over her shoulder at him. Her eyes swept up to meet his, then lowered, triggering the small smile that raised the corner of her mouth. His heart raced like he had run a marathon in the few steps they had taken down the hall. His palm still felt the cool softness of her skin where her hand had been curved into his seconds before. The world shrank down to the size of a pinhole, giving him only a view of her before him. The scent of her perfume lingering where she had been filled his nostrils, and he struggled to stand upright.

How long had he wanted to be right here, about to slip into the bedroom beyond, to take her into his arms and show her how he felt about her? He suddenly couldn’t recall whether it had been mere moments or a month ago that they had met. It shouldn’t matter, he knew, and he tried to breathe slowly, but found himself unable to manage it. Emerald flashed as her eyes raised again to his. She was emeralds and sapphires and diamonds tonight, and more precious than all of those things.

“Ready?” she asked softly.

Invitations

“I must go where I am invited, or I should be too lonely. Why not come with me?”

Archer felt that at any cost he must keep her beside him, must make her give him the rest of her evening. Ignoring her question, he continued to lean against the chimney-piece, his eyes fixed on the hand in which she held her gloves and fan, as if watching to see if he had the power to make her drop them.

“May guessed the truth,” he said. “There is another woman—but not the one she thinks.”

Ellen Olenska made no answer, and did not move. After a moment he sat down beside her, and, taking her hand, softly unclasped it, so that the gloves and fan fell on the sofa between them.

She started up, and freeing herself from him moved away to the other side of the hearth. “Ah, don’t make love to me! Too many people have done that,” she said, frowning.

Too soon, my angel

The curse word out of her mouth was one she was glad her mother was not around to hear. Sunlight flooded over the couch, setting her hair ablaze with heat, and keeping her feet toasty warm. She let out a heavy sigh followed by a soft moan as her head exploded. Curse of the red wine, she decided, sitting up and lamenting the stain the vicious liquid had left on the rug. Ugh, the second bottle even.

Getting over him was going to be harder than she thought.
