Last time I posted we left Sir Nicholas Carroll asking Henry to show him to the kitchen of the Shawley home. Here's this weekend's ten sentences:
Nicholas found no meat of any kind, in fact he found little of anything in the cupboards. But he did locate a cloth and a pail of cold water. That would have to do. Beth had said her mother was at the market. It certainly seemed needful.
“Here, Henry,” he wrung out the cloth. “Hold this against your eye.”
“Does…does it look bad?”
“Shocking,” Nicholas nodded. “You’ll have quite an impressive stinker for a while, my boy.”
Posting more below for those who would like to read on a little. I'm working on The Christmas Carrols for Camp NaNoWriMo and overall, it's been going well. Can't wait to read everyone's excerpts!
Thanks for stopping by.
“Really?” The idea seemed to please Henry. “I’ve never been impressive before.”
Nicholas couldn’t help a smile and a bit of fun. “And when anyone sees you and asks you what happened you can reply with ‘you should see the other fellow!”
Henry seemed to understand the joke and smiled a bit. “I’ll say it to Edmund.”
Beth drifted back to the kitchen. “Sir Nicholas?”
“Yes, Miss Beth?”
“Are you a knight?”
Nicholas smiled. “No, only a baronet.”
“Do you live in town?”
“I live in the country. I come to town for business when I must, and I have some friends in London as well.”
