‘UNDER A CORNISH SKY‘ by Liz Fenwick
Laughter. When had she last laughed? Adam was fun but not funny. Victoria had seen Demi and Sam laughing as they walked together down the drive with a conspiratorial air about them last night. They weren’t lovers yet, but Victoria knew the signs. They were all there. She almost wanted to shout at them to get on with it. Their sexual attraction to each other was annoying, especially as things with Adam were interrupted now that Sebastian was virtually living here. He was ruining everything. Without him here she could have Adam move in. She still could, of course, It would be awkward to start with, but just because Sebastian was willing to invest money in Boscawen didn’t mean that he had a right to live in the house. However, she couldn’t boot him out just yet.
Victoria closed her eyes for a moment, savouring the scent of the lilies she’d brought in yesterday. Today she would hear Demi’s answer. Everything hinged on it and so Victoria had tried to stay out of her way as much as possible. She knew Demi hated her. Well, it was mutual. How was she going to manage to partner with the manifestation of Charles’s infidelity and fertility? She didn’t know, except that she would do everything for Boscawen. It was what she’d been trained to do, but never given the opportunity until now.
