WEEKEND WRITING WARRIORS #27

Hello again. Poor Lord George. He does not want to become another useless Peer of the Realm. Fortunately, his mentor and boss, Lord Grayson, has some timely advice.
“You do yourself a disservice, Lord Kerr. Your family name has a proud history and the ton does not know you were working for the Crown. You are their golden boy who sowed more than his share of wild oats. Continue on with your life, find a pretty girl and get married. It would make your brother the Duke a happy man if you settled down.”
Memories of dark curls caressing creamy shoulders and soft brown eyes gazing up at him popped into his mind. Why would Miss Katherine Bennet make an appearance in his imaginings? Their conversation during Mr. Darcy’s wedding breakfast lasted only a few minutes, but he’d felt a tug at the shy smile and becoming blush which stained her cheeks.
He turned to face Lord Grayson.
“My brothers would be more than ecstatic if I joined Nathan in marital bliss, but unfortunately, I played the part of a Rake so well all the dear mamma’s hide their daughters when I enter the ballroom.”
Next post we'll catch a glimpse of the story's heroine and in the next few posts George and Katherine's 'cute/meet' will unfold. Stay tuned....

WEEKEND WRITING WARRIORS #26

Welcome all and sundry to my weekly post from KATHERINE: Pride & Prejudice continued...Book Two. As much as we liked the banter back and forth between Lord George and Madame Reauchard, alas it has come to an end. I might bring her back into the book later on, or maybe write her own story. I mean, why was she formerly known as Countess Anstruther, but is now Madame Reauchard? Also, what was she doing in France and how did she meet Lord George Kerr?

You know what happens when we ask who, what, where, why and when questions, right? Plot bunnies begin to hop around in our brains. Anyway, Lord Kerr has been told he's useless by Lord Grayson, who'd imperiously peered at him over his glasses. And we continue...

Creative punctuations was used to comply with that dreaded 10 line limit.
"I'd like to know who sent those men." George sat in the chair directly in front of Lord Grayson's desk, his elbow resting on the arm of the chair, his index finger rhythmically rubbing his lower lip. A childhood habit indicating he was deep in thought.
"Who knows." Lord Grayson removed his glasses and pinched the bridge of his nose. "At times I think there are more people working for Boney in England than in France. Money can turn even the most patriotic away from their King, even our own Prime Minister was assassinated."
"Nasty business, that and I'm still not convinced there wasn't a conspiracy." George rose to his feet and paced to the window, clasping his hands behind his back. "So, what am I to do now, become another useless Peer of the Realm?"
So, there you are. George is awash, not sure what to do. Do you think it's time we introduce his future love interest? Stay tuned.
