Dancing #68

Horrified and frightened did I say? Not a bit of it.
I had half-expected to see her pretty face pale and drawn, but her cheeks were flushed and her eyes shone.
"Lucy-?" I began.
"Let's go there. To that inn, I mean!" her words came tumbling out, her eyes begged me, glittering and bright. "Let us go to that tavern, I would so very much like to see it!" Her face wore the most becoming smile, and she added, as if in afterthought, "from a distance at least, my love."
My shock was evident. I felt tongue-tied.

    Oh dear. Watch your step buddy. How sure of Lucy are you?
