Hi guys, I just recently uploaded chapter 20 of my romance story with a twist on the enemies to lovers trope set in the victorian era. I would love for you to give it a read! Below is a snippet along with a link to the recent chapter!
“I’ll be postponing the wedding as you had initially asked of me,” he exhales, clicking his tongue, “so… six months.” “However, you may consider it but a brief period for an almost guaranteed lifetime of peace. Tracking you down in the aftermath of your departure will prove entirely impossible and neither I nor anyone who once knew you could ever hope to recognize you.”
“Seems as though you stand to lose much in the settlement when we ultimately part ways,” I remark, with a tilt of my head, “I find that suspicious you wouldn’t afford yourself the luxury of more time.”
“I merely thought it considerate not to waste yours any further.”
“Considerate?” I repeat skeptically, “I would think it’s rather your arrogance that makes you so certain you could dissuade me in six months’ time.”
“Perhaps,” he replies ambiguously, with a shrug. “So, are we in agreement?”
“We most certainly are,” I affirm, snatching the quill. This will make for good insurance in the event I fail to steal the brooch, first. Signing off on the document, I swiftly hand him back the feather for his signature.
