short chapter will be added to tomorrow…
Colette was wondering where they were headed. It was beginning to look so familiar.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Edmond, whatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s happened? Where are we going?Ã¢â‚¬Â?
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Do not fret, Colette, we will arrive very shortly.Ã¢â‚¬Â?
Colette squinted and saw three people. They were waiting for someone or something. She noticed that they were all on horseback.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Who are those people?Ã¢â‚¬Â? Colette said, pointing into the distance. I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t quite make them out?Ã¢â‚¬Â?
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Soon, milady, soon,Ã¢â‚¬Â? Edmond said, trying not to smile. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Patience, we are almost upon them.Ã¢â‚¬Â?
And so they were. Colette didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t realize just how close they actually were.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Hello, Colette,Ã¢â‚¬Â? Antoine said, smiling, jumping off the horse to meet her. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Have a nice trip?Ã¢â‚¬Â?
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We have been looking for you everywhere, Colette,Ã¢â‚¬Â? Auguste said. He looked down at her dress. Ã¢â‚¬Å“I see youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve been busy.Ã¢â‚¬Â?
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Here she is, Your Majesty,Ã¢â‚¬Â? Edmond said to Francis. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Safe and sound as you requested.Ã¢â‚¬Â?
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Thank you, Captain.Ã¢â‚¬Â? Francis said, Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll see what I can do for you.Ã¢â‚¬Â?
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Thank you, Your Majesty, and now I must take your leave, as I will be teaching some of the younger boys the art of weaponry. Ã¢â‚¬Å“
Francis smiled. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Very good, Edmond. Thank you.Ã¢â‚¬Â?
As soon as Edmond rode of, Antoine turned to her. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Well, looks like youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve been busy. May I ask what you have been doing with yourself? Found anything?Ã¢â‚¬Â?
Colette was fuming. She had been up and down this road countless times. Why had she not noticed.
