you been ill Marlowes eyes flickered when they spotted me, nudging me with the insistent pressure that marked him unmistakably as a daemon.I suppressed an urge to rush at one of Englands greatest playwrights and shake his hand before peppering him with questions What little information I once knew about him flew from my mind now that he was standing before me Had any of his plays been performed in 1590 How old was he Younger than Matthew and I, certainly Marlowe couldnt yet be thirty I smiled at him warmly.Wherever did you find that Marlowe pointed, his voice dripping with contempt I looked over my shoulder, expecting to see some hideous work of art There was nothing but empty space.He meant me My smile faltered.Gently, Kit, Matthew said with a scowl.Marlowe shrugged off the rebuke It is no matter Take your fill of her before the others arrive, if you must George has been here for some time, of course, eating your food and reading your books He is still without a patron and hasnt a farthing to his name.George is welcome to whatever I have, Kit Matthew kept his eyes on the young man, his face expressionless as he drew our intertwined fingers to his mouth Diana, this is my dear friend Christopher Marlowe.Matthews introduction provided Marlowe with an opportunity to inspect me openly His attention crawled from my toes to the top of my head The young mans scorn was evident, his jealousy better hidden Marlowe was indeed in love with my husband I had suspected it back in Madison when my fingers had traveled over his inscription in Matthews copy of Doctor Faustus.I had no idea there was a brothel in Woodstock that specialized in over tall women Most of your whores are delicate and appealing, Matthew This one is a positive , Kit sniffed, looking over his shoulder at the disordered drifts of paper that covered the surface of the table According to the Old Foxs latest, it was business rather than lust that took you to the north Wherever did you find the time to secure her services It is remarkable, Kit, how easily you squander affection, Matthew drawled, though there was a note of warning in his tone Marlowe, seemingly intent on the correspondence, failed to recognize it and smirked Matthews fingers tightened on mine.Is Diana her real name, or was it adopted to enhance her allure among customers Perhaps a baring of her right breast, or a bow and arrow, is in order, Marlowe suggested, picking up a sheet of paper Remember when Blackfriars Bess demanded we call her Aphrodite before she would let usDiana is my wife Matthew was gone from my side, his hand no longer wrapped around mine but twisted in Marlowes collar.No Kits face registered his shock.Yes That means she is the mistress of this house, bears my name, and is under my protection Given all thatand our long standing friendship, of courseno word of criticism or whisper against her virtue will cross your lips in future.I wiggled my fingers to restore their feeling The angry pressure from Matthews grip had driven the ring on the third finger of my left hand into the flesh, leaving a pale red mark Despite its lack of facets, the diamond in the center captured the warmth of the firelight The ring had been an unexpected gift from Matthews mother, Ysabeau Hours agocenturies ago centuries to come Matthew had repeated the words of the old marriage ceremony and slid the diamond over my knuckles.With a clatter of dishes, two vampires appeared in the room One was a slender man with an expressive face, weather beaten skin the color of a hazelnut, and black hair and eyes He was holding a flagon of wine and a goblet whose stem was shaped into a dolphin, the bowl balanced on its tail The other was a rawboned woman bearing a platter of bread and cheese.You are home, milord, the man said, obviously confused Oddly enough, his French accent made him easier to understand The messenger on Thursday saidMy plans changed, Pierre Matthew turned to the woman My wifes possessions were lost on the journey, Franoise, and the clothes she was wearing were so filthy I burned them He told the lie with bald confidence Neither the vampires nor Kit looked convinced by it.Your wife Franoise repeated, her accent as French as Pierres But she is a wWarmblood, Matthew finished, plucking the goblet from the tray Tell Charles theres another mouth to feed Diana hasnt been well and must have fresh meat and fish on the advice of her doctor Someone willneed to go to the market, Pierre.Pierre blinked Yes, milord.And she will need something to wear, Franoise observed, eyeing me appraisingly When Matthew nodded, she disappeared, Pierre following in her wake.Whats happened to your hair Matthew held up a strawberry blond curl.Oh, no, I murmured My hands rose Instead of my usual shoulder length, straw colored hair, they found unexpectedly springy reddish gold locks reaching down to my waist The last time my hair had developed a mind of its own, I was in college, playing Ophelia in a production of Hamlet Then and now its unnaturally rapid growth and change of hue were not good signs The witch within me had awakened during our journey to the past There was no telling what other
