A very slow start on this one, although being constantly pregnant is definitely an encumbrance to extra marital activity. That said, her bath has been prepared and Rosumund has been ordered to help her undress. Then to test the water temperature,
"...as she moved towards the steaming tub, pushing up her sleeve, added, "Not with your hand, girl. With your ass.'"
"My hand coursed up her thigh and over her left buttock, then moved up to her shoulder.........I brought my hand out of her hair and back to her shoulder, then slid it in front, down to her breast, to cup it and hold it, and gently pinch the nipple."
"...the fact that we had shared a bath, because after she had soaped me I had her in the tub on top of me, and as the water had flowed out our mutual desires had flowed in...."
I was worried at first that there might be a relationship with Becket, but I think it's not going to happen. Things may change though. Oh, and Richard at age nine is very much interested in the boys only.
