Guest Posted April 18, 2016 Share Posted April 18, 2016 #43 The Townhouse of Lady Kendishall The town house was commissioned many years ago - and boasts a sweeping crushed drive way to expedite the arrival of carriages with guests. And what parties have been had in this house, it's libertine reputation remains to this day. Ivy has grown up the walls of the tall building, and a glorious display of flowers bring brightness to its sober lines. Within its grounds are intermittently placed sculptures of frolicsome scenes of nymphs at play. John smiled as he walked up the fine driveway that led itself to a frolicking sort of scene. John appreciated that. With a few touches, he thought, it could be the perfect picture of whimsy that it was meant to be. John himself was dressed rather heavily for winter. He had a small satchel of gardening supplies and a few books, some things for the Lady Kendishall and some to help Lady Toledo with her Spanish plants. But for the moment his mind was only on the lady whose house he was approaching. He had not truthfully spent much time with Caroline but she'd left a very positive impression. John regarded her as a friend, one of his first friends at court, and was eager to speak to her again. Coming up the drive, on foot for he lived only a few doors down from her, he knocked. He fidgeted slightly and blew into his hands. He'd been outdoors a fair deal and it was a particularly cold day. A small coat of wetness implied he'd been out for more than just the brief jaunt over.
