Running in out into the garden, Maegan cut straight across the grass heading for the stables, tears flooding down her face, stupid man just didn’t understand.
It wasn’t that he’d been with other women, she’d known that and expected it from the moment she’d walked into the Vaux household, since the first day she’d gone walking with Nicole.
It wasn’t even that she was upset that he’d possibly continue to have mistress’s because as the nun’s had explained it that could be considered a benefit, after all having your husband pleasure himself with others would save you the continuing discomfort of baring child after child, allowing your focus your attention on the children you chose to have together.
It was more than the fact that he’d lied, or that he’d had a relationship with her Aunt it was simply that for a man with such little moral character his refusal to take his own wife to bed could only mean one thing.
There was something wrong with her.
He lied, and continued to lie, she had proven time and again that he was a liar so for all his excuses about her being to young, the soothing words about him not being good enough for her about him wanting to wait till she was ready it was all a pathetic attempt to hide the truth the truth being simply that he did not find her a suitable wife.
Bursting into stables where she hoped to find Bailey the one person who she knew cared for her, perhaps he’d run away with her, they could get a small farm, away from this place it would be terribly romantic.
However entering the stables she came to a screeching halt, “Anya!” She exclaimed “Chase?” finding the pair in a heated embrace.
“Megs” Anya squeaked looking flushed pulling herself out of his arms.
That was when she she noticed, Anya’s tryst was not with Chase at all. The boy Anya her friend, her confidant had been embracing, the boy she’d been kissing, the boy who’d had his hand all over Anya, was not Chase at all but boy had been ‘her’ Bailey.
Straightening himself out Bailey went white as a sheet “Lady Vaux” he mumbled. “It’s not…”
She didn’t wait for his excuse and for the second time today Maegan fled.
