    Summary

    “The black makes you look pale.”

    “It was a funeral. Pale is appropriate.” Abigail's mouth twisted in a funny little knot of a smile. “Were you occupied with something urgent, or did you just not receive the address?”

    Summary

    No puc ser l'única que veia l'odi entre aquestes dues com una obsessió, molt poc sana, de l'una amb l'altra.

    El final de la pel·lícula i els sentiments més profunds de l'Abigail revisitats des de la perspectiva d'algú que shipeja massa i en direccions inesperades i estranyes.

    Summary

    It was unlike the Queen to be quite so assertive and even rarer still for Sarah to relinquish control but yet here they were in an impromptu reversal of roles...

    Summary

    "Quando leggemmo il disiato riso
    esser basciato da cotanto amante,
    questi, che mai da me non fia diviso,

    la bocca mi basciò tutto tremante.
    Galeotto fu ’l libro e chi lo scrisse:
    quel giorno più non vi leggemmo avante."

    «When we read about the joy of being kissed by a beloved person, he, from whom I’ll never be parted, trembled as he kissed my lips. Gallehault was the book and who wrote it. From that day on we read no more.»
    A second of silence passes.
    «Why do you think he was trembling?» Anne whispers.
    «Maybe he wasn’t sure he had her love.»

    Anne and Sarah read Dante. They discover something along the way

    Summary

    It wasn't the same as Sarah. Abigail wasn't as warm as Sarah, didn't have the same scent as Sarah, but it was enough. For now, it was enough.

    Summary

    Above all, I wish to be loved.

    Is it better to be feared?

    Is it sufficient to be listened to, obeyed?

    In lieu, should I ask to be respected?

    Summary

    "I was wondering when you'd be done, I'm starting to feel lonely…" Anne pouts, and Sarah isn't sure if this is pure, spoiled honesty or deranged manipulation. Could be both.

    "When I'm done? With my meetings? Mrs. Morley, I have work to do, you know. Like, oh, taking care of your kingdom, for example! It takes more than a few meetings to accomplish this task." Her words are severe, her posture is unerring but there is tenderness in her eyes and playfulness in her voice.

    Summary

    Anne might be the Queen but she was also a fool. A fool not to believe Sarah. A fool to think that a maid who just happened to be good with her hands and tongue would ever be comparable to the years of friendship, love and loyalty that Sarah had given her.

    Summary

    Somehow, this evening, the narrow channel seems to tighten around Sarah's silhouette, as if she's suspecting something. A premonition. An event, an outburst, a failure. Everything is too quiet, Anne's being uneventful. Being rational, as always, Sarah repudiates these invading thoughts before quickly unlocking the secret passage.

    Princess Anne whimpered and looked up at her with wide eyes, and Sarah smiled at her and reached to offer her a hand up.

    “Hello,” She said. “I’m Sarah.”

    Summary

    I can't follow Sarah, I loiter far behind. Sitting in a wheelchair with a bleeding leg, with an ugly face that can't be embellished with hideous makeup and with a belly that miscarried seventeen children, how can I even imagine be worthy of her affection?
