Stephen Huntington hated the change of season, especially the start of
spring. The constant sneezing and sniffing as blossoms opened
around him was incredibly bothersome. Then again, perhaps it was more than
the change of season he hated. If he were honest with himself—and he
counted himself an honest man, indeed—he hated all change.
A sudden whistle from above yanked him out of his mundane thoughts, and
he stared in awe at a lady—no, a woman who was certainly not fit to be
called a lady—with messy red hair, leaning out of a window.
“What on earth?”
Stephen barely had time to formulate a proper thought before the girl dangled
a bag out of the window.
The bag landed in Stephen’s hands. And before he had time to recover, the
girl jumped from the window too, and he took a large stride forward to catch
her in his arms.
“What in the heavens?”
Her face was close to his—quite improper. Yet, he could not help but admire
the tiny freckles on her nose or the mischievous glint in her eyes. She was
indeed quite beautiful.
“Wait a second…”
He’d seen those piercing green eyes before, of that he was certain, yet a name
evaded him. “You’re Emma’s friend, aren’t you? Cassidy?” He shook his
head quickly, searching his mind for the name. “Chastity?”
The green eyes twinkled with mischief, and the girl pressed her hands on his
shoulders, letting herself out of his grip easily.
“Charity. Thank you for catching me, and…” She reached quickly to grab the
bag out of his hands. “I’ll just take this.”
“Wait a second!” Stephen grabbed onto the dainty wrist quickly, his eyes
narrowing. A lot could be said about the Huntington family, but he would in
no way be accessory to theft.
“Did you steal this?”
“Well…” Charity gave a rather uncomfortable laugh and shrugged. “‘Steal’ is
such a technical term, you know.”
Stephen looked at her, aghast. How could this woman possibly be Emma’s
best friend? His brother’s wife was demure and classy, a proper lady. How
could she be friends with a common thief? Albeit she was a stunningly
beautiful one with fair skin and emerald eyes.
Charity’s upbeat voice interrupted his wandering thoughts. “It’s my father’s
house, so technically I wasn’t stealing… not really.”
Stephen leered, hoping to catch a glimpse of whatever was inside the bag.
Charity, on the other hand, was swift, and she promptly hid it behind her
back. Whatever was inside the bag clanked together—silver, he assumed.
“So, if it’s your father’s house, why don’t you just ask for what it is you
want? And why jump through the window, rather than use the front door?”
Charity sighed and slowed her voice as though she had to explain a difficult
concept to a child.
“My dear stepbrother was supposed to open the door for me and tell my
father I was here, but he is probably out with one of his various companions.
As for asking…”
