May 1st, 1883.

This ‘Hogsmeade’, Diana had reassured her, did not exist on the map, and Suzette pushed the map she had purchased prior to their departure to one side after seeing precisely that for herself. Suzette had never been spontaneous. She planned everything down to the minutest of details and a community which, for all intents and purposes, did not exist did not reassure her in the slightest. And she had never liked Britain, of course. She had tolerated the weather, the filth, the depravity on occasion because she had had to as a girl, but since her marriage and blessed widowhood she had refused to so much as step on a ship bound for the pitiful little country.

This time it had been necessary. It had been for Philippe and she had brushed her reluctance aside in favour of indulging her boy, even if he had only made second string. It had been something of a disappointment, but there was nothing wealth and influence could not fix, and she vaguely brushed back a lock of her son’s hair as he sat gazing out of the window, no doubt as appalled as she was by the landscape as their train rattled through the miserable Scottish countryside.

“Darling, how many times have I told you not to slouch?” she murmured affectionately, but with a distinctly sharp edge. Merlin knew she loved her son, but he could be perfectly ignorant at times. "I will not have the Lethaby's looking down on you for something as common as slouching."

    He had been to Britain before, but only to London—and certainly not recently. While he was far too full of himself to say he was excited about the prospect, Philippe Guillory was looking forward to his summer ‘abroad’, and was pleased that both he and his mother had elected to both go ahead early and to stay in the village proper. The latter served two purposes: first and foremost, it kept Philippe from dwelling on the fact that two women—however attractive—had been deemed more skillful chasers than he himself. He was not an aggressive man, but he could be a jealous one when he had a mind to be. Secondly, and almost as important, the comfort the Guillorys would have in Wellingtonshire would be far greater that of the glorified camping the rest of the team would be partaking in, and their cousins’ connections would aid mother and son socially.

    Too many he thought in response to his mother’s question before straightening as he knew she wished. Posture, in his opinion, had its place—and its place was before the ladies. Much though he loved his mother, Philippe thought Suzette hardly counted in that respect. “I am far too charming for the Lethabys to look down on me for anything, Mother,” he pointed out dryly in his native tongue. Especially since they were women; Mr. Lethaby, he had been told, was long dead.

That, Suzette conceded fondly, was certainly true. A child of her womb, of her lineage, would undoubtedly trump a mere Lethaby any day, even if he wasn’t as handsome, as intelligent, as well-bred as her son. He was a charming young man, and a beauty too and she reached out and gently patted his knee. “Indeed, my dear Philippe,” she murmured in her native tongue, exchanging an indulgent smile with the boy and allowing her fingers to linger. “But I’m afraid that my poor deluded cousin has come to believe otherwise, even if the scent of death still lingers on her person.”

There was surely no one stupid enough to believe her Lethaby cousin had not put an end to her foolish husband’s pitiful existence and her son was certainly clever enough to form his own opinion on the matter.

“Her daughter, I am told, is a more delicate creature.”

    Whatever Mrs. Lethaby believed, the chaser was quite certain he would convince her otherwise. He had always had a way with women—even his mother, for all she clung sometimes, could never fully say no to him—and did not imagine that Britain would make his skills appear any less. If anything, he thought being an exotic treat in the barren island wasteland would only increase his appeal.

    “How old is she?” Philippe inquired, one of the few times he would genuinely be interested in something to do with his young cousin. If she were a child she would be of little enough interested to him, and the Frenchman would surely spend much of his time at the Lethaby house endeavoring to get away from her. “Do not give me that look, Maman; you must know I mean nothing sinister by asking.” Unless she was older. Then he might, depending on how attractive she was.
