After lunch that sunny day, Brady stopped by once a week to visit while Grandfather brewed elixirs in his lab. For the last month in the heat of summer Brady and Iseult would sit and have a quiet lunch getting to know one another in the greenhouse.
There would be a third party at lunch today. Last week Brady asked if it would be okay to bring his wife, Athene, and Iseult was nervous. She had never gotten along with women in authority. After what Gwendolyn did to her, Iseult doubted if she would ever be comfortable with maternal women in particular.
Iseult was pacing the dark wood floors of the entryway when she heard Grandfather chuckle. “Pacing won’t make him show up any earlier Iseult. The only thing you are accomplishing is wearing a hole in the floor and if you don’t stop, Penny will have to contact someone to restore it,” he finished with a smile.
