A mature young woman of nine

“When George and I married, Alex was only eight—”

“Nine!” she called.

“Pardon me. Lady Alexandra Huntington was a mature young woman of nine.” She chuckled, the sound brushing Collin’s spine. “She had a rather fierce crush on George—”

“My grown cousin!”

“—and she found it difficult to like me. In fact, I believe to this very day that she plotted my murder.”

“Not true. I only wanted to run you off.”

“Well, thankfully I’d said my vows just before I met her, or I may very well have abandoned him.”
