Six Sunday #6: With Friends Like These

I'm jumping back to my Regency paranormal romance WIP, A Woman of Proper Accomplishments.

In an earlier Six Sentence Sunday, Helena was caught by her friend Cassie kissing a visiting gentleman, Mr. Morgan.

This six is sometimes later when Cassie makes it clear how she views the situation:


_____________________


“Perhaps he imbibed too much and then laid down a wager with other gentlemen about being able to seduce you.” The glee in Cassandra's eyes suggested she found the possibility more exciting than disturbing. “Oh, I do hope it was a large wager. You are worth it, Helena.”

After taking a deep breath, Helena said, “Cassie, one might claim you my foe to say such things.”

“I did specify a large wager.”

Great banter between theses two - really leaves you wondering whether they are friends or not with that hint of spite. :)
