    Summary

    Prequel to "You Make Me Bold".

    William Boldwood has, with limited grace, accepted Bathsheba's rejection. He has resigned himself to the fact that he'll likely not love again, but the matter of his reputation weighs on him and he knows he ought to marry soon or die a bachelor. Katherine King wants to show him that he need not value himself so cheaply.

    Summary

    A trip to Brighton, far from where any person knows them, is a very desirable thing.

    Very desirable indeed.

    Summary

    It falls to Bathsheba, more often than not, to listen to the farmhands and attend to correspondence and run the gig into town with examples of their produce to demand good recompense for their efforts. If the other landlords find it unusual to treat with the wife, or the workers to bring their gripes and worries to her, or the bank to receive accurate and careful statements and payments in her own fair hand, then it is not ever mentioned to her face.

    Summary

    “Sir,” Gabriel says, as gently as he knows how. “Give me the rifle, sir. Please.”

     

     

    Boldwood’s hands are trembling, but his aim is true, and the sergeant is in his line of sight. Troy has let go of Miss Everdene at least, and is hunched on the ground, breathing hard.

     

    If he moves - if he says a word - Mr Boldwood will kill him. Of that, Gabriel is sure. He doesn’t care about the soldier. No mourned him the first time, not even his wife. But Mr Boldwood’s life is worth more than Troy’s, and Gabriel will not see it wasted for the bastard’s sake.

     

    Mr Boldwood is too good to have this blood on his hands.

    They spoke very little of their mutual feeling; pretty phrases and warm expressions being probably unnecessary between such tried friends.
