Cordelia Lucas Posted January 24, 2017 Share Posted January 24, 2017 This was no 'Ordinary Day'. Today she wwould entertain the first, she hoped, of many Court Gentleman that sought her aid in want of a Wife. The Scottish Baron and she had exchanged conversation at the last Event and she made her offer which he had accepted. Oh true it had not been an outright asking but nevertheless she knew what he had meant. He would arrive to find a plesant repast set out all desgned to tempt the tastes of a man from table to drink. She had been a Solider's wife many years ago and still retained memory of the small things that tempted the most. Here at Court she knew things to be rich and fanciful and she was not well versed in how his Household was furnished so she had opted to keep it simple. He had said 'tea' but she would offer more Meat pasties and cheese, a roasted chicken, a loaf of good white manchet bread that had cost her, apples and pears, pickled eggs. A sweet custard for desert. She had bought spices and wine to mull and that simmered on the coals but would also offer beer. Her small space would provode a warm place for him aganist the climate outside. She would greet him attired in a gown that was neither too lavish or too plain but a happy medium in plum velvet with two rows of cream lace at elbows and around the neck of her bodice. Her single row of pearls graced throat and ears and her scent was a subtile rose. All that was left was his arrival.
