We ended last week with Catherine being carried up the embankment by Lord George and when she tried to stand, her ankle wouldn't hold her weight. To refresh your memories:
"No!" she pulled away from him and almost fell again in pain. This time her ankle refused to hold her weight....
And now the continuation of CATHERINE: Pride & Prejudice continued... Book Two
"We can't ride together, what will people say?"
With his arms firmly wrapped around her, he glanced up and down the road. His eyebrow arched and he grinned. "What people do you see, Miss Bennet?"
"You never know who could come along, no, I'll have to walk."
She pushed lightly against his chest and he allowed them to separate, but kept his hands firmly on her forearms, to steady her balance.
"No," he said, his tone resolute. "I'll walk, you'll ride Buttons."
"Buttons?" She tried not to laugh because it hurt, but the horse was a handsome steed, worthy of name like Zeus, Juno, or Lightning.
There you have it. Until next week, and don't forget to check out other authors who participate in Weekend Writing Warriors: here.
