"I was only allowed to spend a few hours with my mother and we did not talk of it much. I am afraid I know very little. Is it the same as horses?"

"In a way, but it is far more enjoyable for people."

"It does not look enjoyable." She turned away and started walking again. "I would ask Katie, but she is unmarried."

"My sister's husband was lost at sea."

Anna was surprised. "She never said a word."

"I do not think she liked him much. She told me he was dull witted."

"I see, then I will ask Katie."

"Would you rather ask me?"

It took Anna a full minute to mull it over in her mind. "I have heard it is very pleasing for a lad."

"'Tis pleasing for a lass, as well."

She was sure that wasn't true and swore she wasn't ever going to find out. Still, touching him was pleasing. In fact, she could hardly keep from touching him. "Have you any duties in mind for me? I have helped in my father's house, but I was not very good at it. Besides, I am sure things are done differently here. I do not want to disappoint you, but..."

He stopped walking and waited until she turned to him. "Anna, I will not be disappointed. You are our mistress now and you can have and do anything you like. You can plant flowers, move the furniture, order different food or throw everything out the window. You will please me when you make this your home." For a second he was worried about the sparkle in her eye and wondered if she really would throw everything out the window.
