Her presence downstairs that afternoon brought a cerise glow to Mr. Hamilton’s cheeks and a nervous animation to his fingertips, which now hovered busily about his lapel. The curious matter of station perplexed Mr. Hamilton specially, for in the poor, unsuspecting woman he perceived an adversary. Though as butler he was the senior servant, responsible for overseeing the house’s management, as personal secretary she was privy to the shimmering secrets of the family’s business affairs.
Mr. Hamilton plucked his gold fob watch from his pocket and made a show of comparing its time with that on the wall clock. The watch had been a gift from the former Lord Ashbury and of it Mr. Hamilton was immeasurably proud. It never failed to deliver him stillness, to help retain authority in instances of stress or bother.
