Riding to the Moon

    Mary Augustowiczhas quoted2 years ago
    When the maids who were attending her set the beautiful tiara shaped like a wreath of flowers on her head, she knew that she not only looked like a bride, but also a little like the Goddess from Olympus Fabian thought her to be.
    Mary Augustowiczhas quoted2 years ago
    I thought you would – arrange for it to be – later.”

    She saw by the expression in his eyes how much he desired her, but he said quietly
    Mary Augustowiczhas quoted2 years ago
    We are getting married immediately,” he said. “I can wait no longer for you to become my wife
    Mary Augustowiczhas quoted2 years ago
    Our château. Our home,” Fabian said quietly. “We will share it as we will share everything else.”
    Mary Augustowiczhas quoted2 years ago
    Then she woke with a start as Fabian sat down on the bed and kissed her very gently.

    “I was – dreaming of – you,” she murmured drowsily.

    “We have arrived, darling,” he answered
    Mary Augustowiczhas quoted2 years ago
    and I will make you look even more beautiful than you are at the moment!”
    Mary Augustowiczhas quoted2 years ago
    I am a Frenchman and, while no Englishman would bore himself by going to a dressmaker, I have every intention of deciding what you will or will not wear
    Mary Augustowiczhas quoted2 years ago
    if you are regretting the absence of your trousseau, I promise you I will choose for you the most expensive and elaborate gowns any bride ever possessed
    Mary Augustowiczhas quoted2 years ago
    We are to be married tonight in Normandy, but in two days time, before our sins can catch up with us in the shape of our relatives, I am going to take you to North Africa.”
    Mary Augustowiczhas quoted2 years ago
    It is very much easier than if you had that mysterious husband lurking in the background
    Mary Augustowiczhas quoted2 years ago
    We will ride when we are in Normandy.”

    “I have heard your horses are magnificent
    Mary Augustowiczhas quoted2 years ago
    we can be at my château in Normandy early in the evening.”
    Mary Augustowiczhas quoted2 years ago
    We will be married there, by my Chaplain, with no one to interfere
    Mary Augustowiczhas quoted2 years ago
    it!”

    “They will – try to stop us
    Mary Augustowiczhas quoted2 years ago
    Very well,” he agreed, “we will elope and there will be nothing those scheming fathers of ours can do about
    Mary Augustowiczhas quoted2 years ago
    I suggest we elope!”

    “Elope?”

    Loretta could hardly say the word.

    Fabian laughed and it was a very happy sound
    Mary Augustowiczhas quoted2 years ago
    “I asked you if you would come away with me
    Mary Augustowiczhas quoted2 years ago
    Fabian kissed her possessively, passionately, demandingly
    Mary Augustowiczhas quoted2 years ago
    If nothing else, it would be very interesting to get to know a jeune fille!”
    Mary Augustowiczhas quoted2 years ago
    I have a wonderful idea, my darling, but I am afraid you may not agree to it.”
