Of black silk, with long puffy sleeves and an overskirt divided in the front to show a panel of lace, it also bore something that looked like a train. Attached at the shoulders, the swath of material fell behind the countess and puddled on the floor. Her eyes, an arresting blue, were fixed on Arabella with narrowed intensity. Her mouth was unsmiling, the corners hidden beneath doughy cheeks. When Dr. Fenton brought his daughter forward, the countess simply inclined her head very slightly, just as if she were a queen being introduced to one of her subjects.
The countess pointed her cane at the adjoining sofa. ” Gillian didn’t think twice, but Arabella was somewhat slower. Gillian sighed, bit back a comment, and tugged on Arabella’s sleeve. The countess sat opposite the sofa, while Dr. Fenton and the earl sat on adjoining chairs. Just then, the door opened as if the countess had performed some secret signal. A footman came in, struggling under the weight of a massive silver service. Arabella sent her a look, not of desperation, but of annoyance. “Use your common sense,” Gillian whispered to her.

Perhaps he was more egalitarian than the doctor, to whom she was nothing more than a paid servant. “It was acceptable, Your Lordship,” she said. Gillian stood, moved to the window, wishing she could transport herself magically anywhere but here. The silence in the room was awkward, embarrassing, almost a personage in its own right.
