WEEKEND WRITING WARRIORS #41

Welcome friends.

Katherine is situated on a settee in the drawing room alone with Lord George Kerr. He has declared how many can't wait for Napoleon, or as he referred to him - La Corse - to be defeated. Would you like to catch up, read the post HERE.
"You sound as though you've been there and seen that for yourself."
If she hadn't been watching him so closely, she wouldn't have seen him give a start. Minutiae in terms of reaction, but there all the same.
"No, not this boring English gentleman. My French is deplorable, almost as bad as my Latin." He pretended to shudder. "I took an interest in what Old Boney was up to when Nathan enlisted, I played no part in the war."
The gentleman doth protest too much.
A revised quote from Shakespeare fluttered through her mind at his declaration. Kitty determined Lord George did not want her to question his connection with France and nervously pleated the throw rug on her lap.
That's all for this week. Thanks for stopping by. For more information on Weekend Writing Warriors, as well as to read other talented authors, click HERE

  2. So what is his connection to the war against Napoleon? This is a nice readerly question for us to keep in the back of our minds.

    1. If you remember - from waaaayy back - he and Evangeline were perusing smuggled documents, before they killed the bad guys and his cover was blown.

    1. I'm trying to mature the character of Kitty Bennet. She's no longer under the influence of her wild sister, Lydia, and we find that she in an observer of people. Much like Elizabeth was, without the prejudice.

  9. Score one for Kitty. I always liked her in P & P. Sort of the underdog with brains she wasn't allowed to show. I'm so glad you're showing them! I wonder what she's going to do with this new knowledge.

    BTW--The handsome man on your banner looks very much like a young Victor Garber, the actor. :)

    1. Future snippets will bring to light just how much our Kitty DOES know. She, and Mary, have been hiding their lights under the proverbial bushel.

    1. Lord George is all off his game around Miss Kitty. I do believe he'll fumble the ball more than once in this relationship. Poor George.
