A side door opened. Olivia froze beside the tree. Footsteps sounded on the flagstones of the veranda, followed by another set.
"This is not something I wish to discuss before the assembled company, nor the servants."
"Must we discuss it at all?"
The taller man sputtered, incredulous. "Am I to simply forget what I read?"
But the young man stopped suddenly, hand on the open door. He stood, staring blindly in her direction. Had he seen her? Heard her?
She cried out as a foul sack descended over her head and wiry arms grasped her by the shoulders and hauled her away.
“At the door he turned and looked back. She stood, facing away from him, the sunlight from the window enshrouding her in an unmerited halo of gold. Perhaps, he thought, that was how God saw all His children. Selfish and fallen, yes. But in the forgiving light of His Son, each wore an unmerited halo.”
