SPOILER-Y Quote :DStill, he couldn’t imagine his house without her in it. Couldn’t imagine not hearing the echo of her sharp steps as she strode through the hallways to confront him about one matter or another. Couldn’t imagine the scent of her perfume not wafting from her bedchamber into his via the dressing room, couldn’t imagine it not being on the pillow next to his. Couldn’t imagine silence at meals, laughter unheard, smiles unseen.He, who had always longed for the next coin, now yearned for something more. A woman. He thought he’d give up every coin he possessed if she would bestow upon him just one more smile.
