Two seconds on the blooper reel = 172 words.  James and Caroline, naturally.



      She fanned herself slowly. “The heat makes it impossible to sleep. I shall never get used to the tropics, I think.”
      “This from the woman who adores India?”
      “It’s not the same, you know… it’s so very damp. I cannot imagine how you endure it.”
      “One becomes accustomed.”
      She shot him a look of disbelief, then reconsidered. “Do you know what they say, in Delhi? It’s an accepted fact that no one goes out in the noonday sun save mad dogs and Englishmen.”
      He threw his head back and laughed, and her breath caught in her throat. His eyes sparkled so, and at least a decade rolled back off his face. The change was so dramatic that she wondered, for a second, if he was younger than she.
      He noticed her surprise and was about to comment on it, but she covered quickly. “You laughed. I had no proof, but I was sure it must be possible.”
      “It’s a pity, then, that there are no witnesses, for you will never be believed.”

I had a pretty clear image of what Caroline looked like when I started this, even with the hair issues. I sort of had her like Rossetti's Persephone (my default icon) but it's changed a little as I've hashed out more of the story.

She actually looks a lot more like Mary Linley. )

Why, yes, I am having trouble with writer's block today, why do you ask? :)
