    Summary

    She picks up one of the chess pieces and fingers it fondly. “I must admit, I had a bit of a hot head in those days. I believe I told everyone that they probably couldn’t win if they played against me anyway - that the logic was much too complex for them. But if they did dare, I’d go easy on them.”
    “And what happened,” Mildred rests an elbow on the table and leans closer, intrigued.
    “Well, this girl I hardly knew, who never spoke except for in class, but who always got top marks, sat down across the table and informed me that so long as I explained the rules to her, there was no need to go easy.”
    “Miss Hardbroom?!”
    “That’s the one,” says Pippa grinning at the memory.

    Summary

    Reading the unscripted meanings of fauna, was something Hecate Hardbroom was well versed at, one may even say she had a talent for it. But when it came to practising the art with another, Hecate never failed to fall short of the mark. Much more content to stay in the safe space of her work or her home rather than anywhere else, if it wasn't for Ada and Dimity, Hecate would have been termed a strange recluse with only her cat for company, long ago.

    So when she finds herself in the unfamiliar setting of a massage parlour, it is conceivable to believe it was not her idea, nor was she present of her own free will. That was until she'd met Pippa, a woman with a welcomed love of violets.

    A conversation about flowers and poetry, leads an uneventful massage to take a very different path.
