He normally preferred to make love with light around him, but he did not wish to make the consummation of his marriage an unnecessarily embarrassing ordeal for Arabella. He had been somewhat touched by her quietness. If she meant to be as obedient throughout their marriage as she had been in the performance of her first duty as his wife, he supposed he must consider himself a fortunate man. She had said nothing and had given no indication of discomfort or shock or pain. She had not resisted him in any way.
And this one definitely made her look less than slender. It did seem a little unfair. A bride had a right to look lovely on her wedding day. The old stone church in the village was almost full. And it was not even Sunday. All those people looking back over their shoulders when she stepped into the porchway with Mama and the girls were there to see her. And the new master of Parkland, of course. That was when Arabella started to feel sick. And cold. And wobbly at the knees. She had never been more thankful for Mama's steady arm and loving smile.
It was hard to see her as a mature woman. She had sat quietly through the three days of their journey, saying hardly a word except on the rare occasions when she forgot herself and burst into speech. This morning at the breakfast table, in fact, was the first time he had been alone with her since their wedding day. The first time he had been alone to converse with her, that was. He had, of course, visited her on their wedding night and again the night before. But one did not visit one's wife's bed in order to converse.
