“You really think I could knock two fully grown men unconscious?”
My husband’s reply came instantaneously. “Yes.”
“You're to be my wife." Catching up to her in two strides, I reached out to grab her arm, but stopped short of touching her. "That means you'll obey me."
"Does it?" She raised her brows, still grinning. " I suppose that means you'll honor and protect me, then? If we're adhering to the dusty old roles of your patriarchy?"
I shortened my pace to match hers. "Yes."
She clapped her hands together. "Excellent. At least this will be entertaining. I have many enemies.”
"Where you go, I will go. Where you stay, I will stay."
"She actually had the gall to pout. "I could ask you the same question. How could you not invite me to your wedding?"
A bubble of laughter escaped my lips. It sounded eerie in the stillness.
"Trust me, if I would've had any say in the guest list, you would have been there."
"Maid of honour?"
Every aspect of Reid was precise, certain, every color in its proper place. Undiluted by indecision, he saw the world in black and white, suffering none of the messy, charcoal colors in between. The colors of ash and smoke. Of fear and doubt.

Perhaps I'd died after all. That was certainly more plausible than Reid swearing with such delicious proficiency.
"Florin ? What a terrible name ! No wonder he never uses it."
He frowned at me. "Florin is my middle name."
I crumpled it up and tossed it in a bin. "A true tragedy."
I squeezed his fingers, my own stiff and aching from the cold. "Célie was right. I don't deserve you. I made a real mess of your life when I came into it."
His other hand came down on top of mine. "I'm glad you did."
Slinging his best Chasseur coat over his shoulder and sighing, he bent to tuck a piece of my hair behind my ear in farewell.
"You're going to look divine in this !"
"I look divine in everything."
