Arabella/ Wellington


He is a good friend to her after Italy. Such a great man in the eyes of the world, a hero. He makes a favourite of her and the world in turn looks on her with greater favour.

He provides a little brightness too: a dinner, a dance, a trip to the theatre. Small distractions from what was lost and what she is still fighting to regain. If he becomes a little too forward, she can forgive him for it. He is used to the adoration of women, of having his pick of the crowd to warm his bed. He has an easy charm that leaves her tempted, even as she laughs at his flattery and veiled offers.
