"How wealthy? You never did say how much you sold the mine for."

"Unfortunately, I have spent most of what I made building this house and repairing the old one."

"Oh, but you could sell this one, am I right?"

"Perhaps."

"Of course you could. I have read much about the men who have gotten rich off the gold mines in Colorado. There must be ten or twelve at least."

"Aye, but they already have fine homes."

"But surely this is the finest."

"I am glad you think so. Yet, it might take a while to sell it."

"But we will be home in time for the rest of the season. Oh, please promise we will. You left so suddenly, I have not yet been properly presented at court."

He didn't think anything could further surprise him, but that statement just did. "Forgive me, my dear, I dinna realized you held being presented in such high esteem."

"Of course I do. We've only four months left in this season, that is, if we leave right away. If not, we are forced to wait for the next, and dearest, I do so want to see our daughters presented. As you know, it is the very best place to find a husband. It is where I found you."

"Indeed." He was finding it harder and harder to keep smiling. "I have greatly wronged you, I see that now."

"Then you will come home?" If his nod was reluctant, she didn't notice. "Oh Hannish, I am so happy. I knew you would come once we talked face to face. The retched journey was worth it then." With a sparkle in her eyes, she put her hand on the side of his face. "I shall reward you properly later."
