It was a full minute before Miss Annis Milbank could recover sufficiently from the shock to exclaim, "But, my dear ma'am! What in the world makes you suppose that I am the most appropriate person to aid you? For all that I endeavour to behave as my dear mama would have wished, I remain shockingly outspoken on occasions. In consequence, I'm ill equipped to take upon myself the role of mediator, most especially in such a delicate matter as this." Lady Pelham merely smiled that serene smile of hers, as she raised her eyes to study the delightful features framed in a riot of glossy chestnut curls. Beautifully candid as ever, her goddaughter had spoken no less than the truth. Yet, even though her manners and behaviour were somewhat unorthodox on occasions, and there were those who considered her a little too self-reliant for someone of her tender years,Annis had been blessed with her mother's serenity, not to mention kindness and understanding, and her father's determination and sound common sense. These admirable traits, coupled with an abundance of roguish charm, made her the ideal person to adopt the role of envoy. "You err, my dear," she countered gently. "Your not being afraid to speak your mind in this instance might well prove advantageous." Annis betrayed her misgivings by lifting one fine brow in a decidedly sceptical arch. "Ma'am, if the present Lord Greythorpe resembles his predecessor in character, is it likely he'll listen to anything I might choose to say?" "The truth of the matter is, child, I've no notion of what manner of man the current holder of the title might be," Lady Pelham confessed as she rose wearily to her feet and went across to the window. "Opinions vary. I've heard it said that he's very like his late father in so much as he has a tendency to be cold and unapproachable on occasions; others, so I understand, hold a very different view of him. I myself am endeavouring to keep an open mind." Her expression suddenly grave, Lady Pelham swung round to stare at her goddaughter. "Please do not imagine I ask this of you lightly," she revealed at length. "In fact, if I could have turned to any other, a member of my own immediate family, or some close friend here in Bath, I should never have written in such a melodramatic fashion, begging you to visit here without delay. You must have been a little concerned when I offered no explanation in my letter." Her lively sense of humour coming to the fore, Annis couldn't help smiling at this gross understatement. The instant she had received the communication, she hadn't hesitated to make all haste to Bath. The journey from her Leicestershire home had been achieved swiftly enough, but even so she had been granted ample time to imagine the worst. On her arrival a short time earlier, she had half-expected to be met with the intelligence that Lady Pelham was gravely ill, or at the very least that some shocking misfortune had befallen Helen, her Fiction Fiction eBook, Harlequin
