Oh dear.. Apologies to Jerusha and Darcy. I didn't mean to make Darcy sound snotty ( and certainly NOT like Jaxom). I meant for his words to be because he is torn between his love for Aliset and his fear that this all sounds too good to be true. And that made it sound wrong. If anyone is being snotty it is Columcil who enjoyed dumbfounding Darcy and taking off  past him on a splendid war horse just a little too much.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

I didn't read it as Darcy being snooty. Not at all. I read it as Darcy being overwhelmed, concerned, and trying to take a back-step. Is this really what Aliset wants? Is this really the direction he had planned to take?
Up until now, Darcy and Aliset have had a few moments of deep attraction for each other, but those were mostly in the midst of life threatening encounters. Nothing before this moment has been said about a life time commitment of marriage. I think these two need to set down somewhere and hash out just what they each want out of their relationship. and realize that the each trusts each other's opinion, emphatically.

Columcil has to assert himself into a position of authority so that he can moderate that conversation. Marriage councilor per-say.  But I have to add, that I think Columcil is still not completely comfortable with his parentage and the higher rank that it gives him.  As the two love birds learn to talk to each other, I think they can also help Columcil learn to respect his higher status. Riding Shadow and being comfortable on the grand horse will also help him learn a new place for himself. He isn't just a humble country priest any more. Darcy isn't just a seaman anymore. and Aliset isn't just a humble maiden.  All of them are growing up.

Thanks Laurna,

That's how I meant to write it and you have given a great insight into our characters.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.

Maybe when they  reach the place where  the betrothal  is to take place they will be able  to take time to talk and get a better understanding  of each other's  feelings and wants and needs. Thanks Laurna for your insights and This is what they need.

Remember that Darcy, in spite of his new status, is still much a seaman at heart.  He spent 12 hard years at sea, worked his way up to ship's officer and master navigator.  Unfortunately, diplomacy is NOT a skill he learned.  Aliset will help him learn this over time, even when he is his most exasperating self.   ;)

Education in diplomacy will be very  helpful, I think. And Columcil might need to work a bit on his temper. He has Dhugal's  temper which can get the better of him. Fascinating to see how they will change in their new circumstances.

I didn't mean snotty brat in a bad way.  He's trying to find his way, but he was a bit bossy with Aliset & Columcil and needed a set down. Col really gave it to him, too! Great writing! Looking forward to the betrothal. They will never have a dull marriage!

Well done, Jerusha!

And I have to say that this part:

At the priest’s nod, Darcy took the ring and slid in on the little finger of her left hand.  It made it as far as the second knuckle and lodged firmly. “We never do anything quite the normal way,” he said.

Aliset laughed.  “I doubt we ever will,” she replied.

Amen, thought Columcil.

Made me quite literally laugh out loud!  :D
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

Wonderful, Jerusha. Just wonderful.

Lovely wedding. And no, that marriage will never be boring.LOL
Washburn wishes the couple a happy life time of love. And he wishes he were there. Even if he knows nothing about it.  When he does know about it, he will find a suitably unsuitable story to tell and a gift for the happy couple.

Revanne, love your writing and Columcil's predicament in dealing with Shadow  who just wanted to have fun like the humans. Things look bright for Darcy  and Aliset  as a married couple and Columcil seems to building a better relationship  with his grandfather which I am sure will help him in the future. Only Wash continues in his endless ordeal where his situation only gets worse.  Hope Columcil's prayer for him is heard,

Revanne, you read my mind. I was wondering about Shadow and Sigrun.  Enough romance for one night, I think!
