THE VISCOUNT OF MAISONS LAFFITTE
The morning sun streamed through the tall windows of the Chateau of Maisons Laffitte, and the small square window panes made a checkered pattern of sunlight on the wooden floor. It was a warm day for late October, and the crisp sound of birds chirping nearby intermingled with the muted squeals of children playing further away.
Le Viscomte Charles Jean-Anne de Chabot sat behind the Louis XIV desk, which was antique in structure but modern in disarray with cords and chargers strewn among the documents. Papers were stacked in what could roughly be called piles, and a steaming cup of espresso sat in the center of it all, yet untouched. The Viscount was leaning back against his padded, straight-backed chair, one leg crossed easily over the other. A tablet was perched on his lap and he idly flipped through yesterday’s news articles, raising his brows over the caption on one of the photos.
