She was... correct about the hair. Where did the woman think they were? The bedroom?! The only appropriate place fore a man’s hair to be out of place?!
Hmm... she clearly wanted something... Though it was hard to tell with her. She always called him darling and dear... Ahh... there is was. Trying to lull him in with with her womanly wiles. Remind him with touch and close proximity that he would have quick, easy access to her if she were under his roof. Not a bad plan really, but...
Nathan smiled back at her a moment, then said,
“Considering how certain we are in our decision why must we figure out the dynamics beforehand? Isn’t it suffice to say it will all work out one way or the other?”
Nathan gave her a little tuck under the chin with a crooked finger, then drawing back from her, as he ran his fingers through his hair, he said, “When I marry you all that is mine... my home, my land, fortune, and body will be yours. Why rush it? If you only mean you wish to bring a few things for convenience why of course. But... I would prefer to savour my remaining days of privacy and control of my home until the end.”
Yes, the idea of playing house was not so appealing to Nathan. He was use to his ways. He was use to complete control. He knew in a vague sense that would change with the marriage and he was not looking forward to it. It was a necessary sacrifice for the greater good.
