'I have to change dresses!' she reports as I smile despite my numb stinging cheek


'get out!!' she hisses at me angrily.

I take her into my arms and give her a kiss before I walk to the door. As long as that yellow dress wasn't on her body when she was in his arms I feel relief. I open the door and shut it, pretending I was trying to get in when Carlen steps out of her room

'I doubt she would want to talk to you right now.' Carlen irately says to me. I sigh

'Carlen you know how much of a dimwit your brother can be; you more than anyone know I was only protecting Sadie from him.' I point out

'I think you could have used less traumatic methods! You know our history Herve! You know it better than most! And yet you chose to use it against us today!' she whispers snappily at me

'Get some rest.' She says to him then turns to me, walking out of the room past me. I warn him off his games and follow her out.

Sensing me behind her, she increases her pace down the steps but I persist until I grip her elbow, stopping the dame in her tracks. She stomps her foot on the stair and turns to me

'let go of me or I will scream so loud your tympanic membrane will go amiss for a long time to come.' She hisses angrily at me

'we need to confer.' I plead with her

'about what?!' she grunts, her eyes wide in enragement
