Since her wedding night, she had been cheating on Aidan profusely, having not even slept with her own husband yet. Her mind was far too distracted with Gavin, and she was starting to fear the worst for herself. When she was set to marry him she wouldn't even dream of admitting any sort of love...But now that he was completely off the table as a lifelong partner...her chest ached.
Looking down, Viola looked down into the shopping bags. She'd recently returned from a trip after lumbering Aidan with Dorian yet again; apparently they'd gone to the park or something. Reaching into the bag, Viola pulled out the lacy material and held it against herself, moving to the mirror in the bedroom to get another look. She was sure Nil had enjoyed the sheer amount of time she spent looking at the various style!
She could never tell. His face gave nothing away, and the moment he'd returned her home, he made himself sparce.
Viola couldn't wait to show Gavin these new pieces! But it was then that she heard the jostle of the door, and Viola bolted, running back to the bags and shoving the lace inside, snatching the handles up and rushing to shove them in her wardrobe. She didn't want Aidan to see them...if he did, maybe he would get some ideas...
