The Viscount – Chapter Three



Chastity stood in the kitchen, completely white, gripping the telephone in her hand. There was a low, nervous laugh on the other end of the line. “You remember who I am, right?” he prompted when she didn’t answer.

“Why are you calling me after all this time?” she asked slowly. There was silence. He hoped, perhaps, that in that old way she had of filling the pauses in conversation, she would be the one to break the silence. She didn’t.

I love to hear from you, friends. You can comment using the box below or your Facebook profile. But FB doesn't notify me of new comments, so if the post is more than a week old and you want to make sure I see your comment, it's better to use the comment box. Merci!

I am the daughter of a symphony musician who was raised in upstate New York, and I simply breathe all things classical, be it music or 19th century literature (English and Russian). I married Sir Renaissance in New York City, and before I knew it, he had swept me up and brought me back home to his own country. So here we are. Three children, a rather ordinary life in a rather exceptional place. I am now ‘A Lady in France.’

  1. Oh my goodness!

    I’m behind two chapters – I had no idea you had started posting this – that’s what I get for taking a break from the internet.

    Can’t wait to catch up and I am SOOOOO proud of you and impressed that you’re doing this again. Way to keep yourself accountable and on a schedule…

    Can you teach me how to do that?
