QuoteInstead of finishing the thought, she sent an small assortment of images of various other men, presumably earlier suitors. One looked to be well into his sixties, with a florid face and such a large girth Stefan wondered how he'd planned on sharing a bed with his young bride without snapping the mattress support ropes. Sweet Jesú, lady, if I ever approach your bed looking like that, I give you leave to hold up my sword so I can fall upon the point of it and spare you further agony!
QuoteHave you any children? He swallowed quickly to avoid spewing wine across the table. I...No, my lady. Not that I kn―um, no, I don't.... He felt his cheeks growing hot. A mental laugh. I'm sorry! I suppose that was rather indelicate of me. Some men do, though. She glanced up at him shyly. I didn't want to assume.
Quote from: Evie on July 18, 2010, 08:03:59 PMMy folks used to play "parents away from home" to international students from a nearby university. One Nepalese guy they befriended told them that when he went back to Nepal after graduation, he was blindsided by the news that his family had a bride waiting for him. He had become pretty Americanized and was NOT happy! Didn't even get to meet the girl until the wedding day, which just added to the stress. Fortunately they picked well, and the two are still married (and happily so) 20 years later.
