In spite of his words, he grabbed his chair and whipped it around in front of him in the same manner in which he had done so as a child, when his teasing would drive her to retaliate. She wouldn't be at all surprised if he stuck his tongue out at her at any moment. "Now then, as I was saying, I had arranged a meeting with a charming young woman. " A smile curved the corner of his mouth. " "And when I heard Nicholas coming, I hid behind the sofa, because I thought it was her, you see. " Elizabeth nodded at the sofa at the far end of the wall.
Elizabeth knew full well her anger was directed as much at her late husband as it was at Jonathon—if not more. Pity Jonathon had to take the brunt of it. Still, he wouldn't be in this position now if he hadn't held his tongue for so long. " She drew a deep breath and forced a measure of calm. "Now that you have revealed some of the truth," she picked up the papers and waved them at him, "I need, I deserve, a more detailed explanation than I have received thus far. " "I thought I explained it all rather well," Jonathon murmured.

I never did when Charles was alive because there was no need for me to do so. " "Charles was a fool," Jonathon said in a voice far harder than necessary. Her gaze shot to her brother's. "Not to have recognized your intelligence and competence, I mean," Jonathon said quickly. " She laughed. "I suppose it scarcely matters now. All is said and done, and now that I know—" A thought struck her, and she drew her brows together.
