of « Catherine and a Time for Love » Book 5
What was La Hire saying to you during the ball?
Is it true that you will have to leave here in spring, and go back
to war? »
He half opened one eye and shrugged and pulled a corner of the
bearskin rug over himself and over her.
« The English still occupy some of our strongholds. As long as they
remain here we have to fight »...
She began to tremble, suddenly a prey to all the old fears which
had tormented her so much in the past. Was it all going to start
« I don't want you to go away; I don't want you to leave me again. I
got you back, I want to keep you...»
She tightened her arm round him in a childish gesture, as if she was
afraid that he would disappear instantly. Tenderly, he stroked her
cheek and kissed her softly. She saw his white teeth gleam in the
half light and knew that he was smiling.
« Do you think I want to leave you again and spend night after night
without you, without your eyes, your body? I am a soldier and I have
to do my duty. But when I go away, you shall come with me... The
campaigns only last six months and there are many castles behind the
lines. You shall wait for me there, and we will never be parted...
never again. The time for tears, for suffering and pain is over for
you. Now the time has come for us to love,. And we won't waste a
single minute of it ».
