Three days passed since their meeting in the armory and its absurd ban on the kissing. From the moment she managed to not be alone with him. Rebecca got up late, going about their daily business and a step did not depart from his aunt. In the evenings, they played a game of chess or poker, always in the company of a lady Tucker.
