My arms hurt after a long and laborious day in the kitchen, helping Marthe. I had helped her skin the rabbits, first recoiling at the thought but then getting used to it. The sight, the smell, the sound of the knife cutting the skin, tearing it. The worst part was the touch.

I felt my happiness combust and fill my entire body as his breath warmed my neck and his words filled my mind. I couldn't help but anticipate the future, I would have a family. The de Clermont family would have new kinsmen. I would be a mother...
