Mr. Peters led her upstairs. The room he showed her was charming, and very clean. A fourposter bed covered in a white counterpane dominated most of the floor space beneath a window. ~ 41 ~ Mr. Peters lit the fire in the hearth‘s grate and left her to herself, saying, ―If you and your lordship need anything, you have only to ask. ‖ Gillian was happy to see him bow out, desperately needing a moment to freshen up a bit. However, once she was relaxed, the implications of the innkeeper‘s kind remarks sank in.
She asked, curiosity making her probe for the truth. His brows came up. He leaned back in his corner. Slowly he nodded his head. ―I knew her all my life…‖ His voice trailed off as if he didn‘t wish to discuss the matter. But Gillian had to ask questions. The man she knew as her husband was acting strangely. She remembered him as being almost as cold and indifferent as his father. This was a new Wright, and she didn‘t know if she trusted him. ―What is going on, Wright? Why did you come for me?
She fell back against the seat. ‖ ―Come along, Gillian. ‖ She rolled her eyes. ―I know the marquess. ‖ The angry muscle in his jaw tightened. She wondered if he knew how easily he gave away what he was thinking with the tense reaction. ―I know my family‘s faults, Gillian. ‖ she guessed, ignoring his show of temper. ―I have a housekeeper,‖ he returned levelly. ‖ ―We‘ve had this conversation,‖ she said almost pleasantly. ‖ ―I should have married a meeker woman,‖ he grumbled, and she had to laugh.
